2 out of 5 eggsGood while it's lasting

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW060A310 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Intel 520 series drives are generally fast no issues yet and come with a 5yr warranty, however pay close attention to what Intel has done to it's customers now.

Compare to N82E16820167093 and check Intel's website regarding warranty to make sure it's what you want.

Cons: It seems that Intel is now hiding behind a wear-out clause for OEMs that they conveniently determine themselves. I will say that at this time I have no issues with my current drive but I do have issue with Intel. At the time I purchases the 120GB version of the 520 drive from NE it had no conditions or exceptions shown on it and still doesn't. See N82E16820167093

I can't but wonder what the customer is going to do when the drive faults and writes E9 status in less than 90 days and Intel says the warranty's up regardless of the 5 year stated parts and labor. On this point I'd take my chances with Hitachi DeathStars... -The short resolution: don't buy OEM from Intel if you want the 5 year, but still read their coverage policy on the Intel site before making the jump.

Companies like BFG, EVGA, IBM, Compaq and Tandy have all dared to play the Warranty Shuffle Game with their customers. Few have lived through the backlash and managed to stay in business. They either learn from the mistake or closed down all consumer marketing and go corporate only if not just roll over and die with what money left over. Let's hope Intel learns to be more careful in it's offerings without having to remove much egg foo young from face.

It appears that Intel has done something similar here. They've implemented a limitation to the 5 year warranty. One can see Intel is making noises contrary to what the initial offering was due to the unforeseen / seemingly unexpected use of their product. All because it may be used in a server OS environment ?

Intel should modify the warranty to say; If said device is used in any RAID or server environments / configurations; the 5 year warranty doesn't apply and a 2 year warranty shall then be in effect.

Other Thoughts: After reading this notice regarding limitation of 5 year coverage, my fellow Game Warriors, Admins and Devs, I will error in the side of caution when it comes to a CPU and Network chipset giant trying to break into the Data peripherals market.

As I want to save buyers / owners, of this wonderful piece of equipment thus far, a potential pitfall and rude awakening of ownership should the need arise to have to actual USE warranty coverage on your purchase.

In this case a NE offering of extended warranty *MAY* be a good choice since Intel has limitation implied on OEM.

For a standard windows 7 / 8 GO FOR IT it but we warned about the warranty "cache" ;-)

5 out of 5 eggsIntel 520

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW060A310 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is blazing fast. I have windows 8 installed and boots under 2 seconds without drivers and bios logo. Boots under 10 secdons with drivers/logo.

Cons: None so Far.

Other Thoughts: I would tag a 2TB HDD with this for more space or an external USB 3.0 Drive for faster speeds.

Pros: Love this SSD. It has performed as expected (that is to say, it's really fast) and has given me no trouble at all.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall, affordable, reliable and fast

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW060A310 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I bought this baby online for $60 which was a great deal. I did research before buying an SSD as to which was the most reliable make/model. That would be this one, according to the majority of internet opinions. So this drive is, statistically, the most reliable, and it is BLAZING fast. I havent used an ssd before this, but now that I have it I can see a massive difference in performance.

Cons: none.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent disk

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW060A310 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Wear leveling, intel hardened SF controler/firmware, fast, reasonable price.

I have a ton of these at work, and several at home. Haven't had any issues with any of them thus far. They're fast, have all the features you could want, for a great price.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsBEST IDEA EVER

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW060A310 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super fast. Installed windows in about 10 minutes. 3-5 second boot times from start up. Boot is so fast i have to spam the Del key to get into BIOS. All programs installed to SSD are amazingly fast during load, obviously. Would buy again, 10/10.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsFirst computer build and SSD install.

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW060A310 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Relatively cheap for SSD technology. Easy to install into chassis. Drivers for SSD came pre-installed. Intel had the drivers readily available for download and they're working.

Cons: Instructions for installation were not CRYSTAL clear to me as i'm a novice computer builder. I installed Windows several times before I realized to just LEAVE the SSD out until installation was complete. So for future reference you shall do the same. It did not come with a mounting tray but fortunately my hard drive mounts had the holes pre-drilled. I just had to find 4 screws to fit.

Other Thoughts: I haven't really used it much and Internet Explorer is the most frequently used program on my computer. The hard drive is not accessed when its called up and it seemed to boot faster right before I started to write this review.

To set this up as a cache drive:
-Either hack the registry or just go into BIOS and set SATA to RAID. (DO NOT BUILD A RAID BUT JUST SET IT).
-Install Windows normally.
-After that process install Intel's latest RST drivers from the website.

Everything after that little tid-bit should be pretty easy.

Only time will tell if it was worth the $100 or so but it seems to be doing what its advertised to do.

BUY IT!
