5 out of 5 eggsmy stock ssds

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW180A310 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: have a raid 0 pair in an xeon work station.
have a raid 0 four of them in an AMD high level set up.
each setup gets top record scores in Passmark
undoubted performance no data loss ever.

Cons: in the AMD setup which ran well WITHOUT water cooling we had to add Water cooling after installing the 4 Intel ssds.
Otherwise the slight heat under stress would cause them to drop out or if they were the boot drive then a crash. After a few days of this we added the water cooling. It 100% fixed the problem of overheating under heavy stress of the Intel SSDs.

Other Thoughts: Like my OCZ high end PCI Express slot solution these babies are now selling a lot more than I paid. Amazing in the computer industry.

4 out of 5 eggs- one egg for Intel instructions

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW180A310 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It works. It is fast. Too early to say about reliability. My friend using 520 series 120 Gb SSD for over a year w/o any problems, that is why I got one. It does everything right. Wakes up from all kind of sleeps flawlessly.

Cons: This one is for Intel and not for the drive itself
INTEL what is your problem!? Your cloning software instructions does not say anything about initializing drive. Drive came UNFORMATTED. If you're installing Windows from scratch you most likely would not have this problem as windows will format it for you. But if you are cloning drive you have to connect it to your computer as seconday / slave/ USB drive then go to Administrative tools / Computer Management / Disk Management. You have to initialize the drive and format it using 1024 offset IMPORTANT! Only and ONLY after you do that the drive will become accessible in Acronis based Intel cloning software. I work with Acronis for years and I know Acronis will not touch the drive unless at least one FORMATTED partition is present on it. I know that. A lot of over people know that. What about people with beginners knowledge who want to upgrade to SSD? Shame on you INTEL for being so arrogant!

5 out of 5 eggsDependable Speed

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW180A310 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Blazing fast speed! I have been running this as my only drive for OS and gaming, just two games, not too much space, ha! I have been playing Dungeons and Dragons Online and Skyrim (Both DX11) with high textures (many custom texture mods on my copy of skyrim) and the games run perfectly! Loading times are blazing fast. I was drawn to Intel for their advertised stability on the cherryvilles, and so far I have had no problems.

Cons: Boots OS so fast, that I have had to restart my computer a second time to get to bios! Not really a con, but it can be annoying when your post screen is only half a second.

Other Thoughts: Just to be on the safe side, I suggest making a clone of your drive. Cherryvilles are supposed to be stable, but it is still and SSD drive.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked great for about a month

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW180A310 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy install, comes with proper cables. Was a bit faster than my OCZ Vortex 2 which it replaced in daily use.

Cons: Died in about a month. Got it during black friday sale. Went to bed two days ago, turned off machine. Wouldn't boot in the morning. Good thing I hadn't formatted my old OCZ Vortex 2 120GB. Popped it back in and had minimal data loss. Ugh, now I have to figure out how to return it to Best Buy as an online purchase. Now I wish I had gotten it from Newegg, so much easier to deal with.

Other Thoughts: First SSD to die on me. And I bought it specifically for longevity of Intel SSDs. Guess they fail just the same as others. Now who to choose?

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work at all.

This review is from: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW180A310 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Were shipped quickly.

Cons: Ordered two of these, neither one worked out of the box. Have sent them back will see what the replacements do.

Other Thoughts: Be careful ordering these. Bounced around between websites looking for availability and price, didn't realize they come in three different versions. Ended up getting the OEM version with no cables or brackets. Less to return.

Pros: Fast, Silent, Dependable. Everything loads faster, including web pages.
