4 out of 5 eggsTwo Years In

Pros: Fast, Reliable. Simple.

Cons: None other than price. But I paid less than $200 for this drive in 2012, bought from different retailer. Storage capacity wasn't much of a factor since I wanted it strictly for a boot drive.

Other Thoughts: I've had this thing for quite a while with no problems so far. Glad I picked it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSDs

Pros: Runs very fast and was great for the money when I bought these, they were on sale for $99. I have had 2 of these running in RAID 0 for 2 years now and my original motherboard (ASUS P8Z68-V LE) died and I replaced it with a different model (ASUS P8Z77-V LK) and the RAID came right back up with no issues.

Cons: Can't really think of any over the two years I've owned these.

5 out of 5 eggsNice SSD!

Pros: How about a Windows 7 boot-up in 12 seconds flat from BIOS screen to login screen? 'Nuff said.

Cons: No cons in my opinion

1 out of 5 eggsRegret

Pros: It is silent.

Cons: It seems slower than the 5400 hd my laptop came with, even when comparing boot time. For the last six months I've experienced extreme latency/freezing/blue screen issues. I looked the other way until now, but after the 4 second delays I experienced between character strokes in Eclipse, I've had it. This thing is going in the garbage (if I don't decide to set it on fire) and I'm buying a reliable HDD.

Other Thoughts: This was actually the second SSD I got, after the first being defective. I've probably invested 40 hours between research, troubleshooting and formatting. Not worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD but I had some tech trouble

Pros: It's quick. Boot time when I first installed Win 8 was ~18 seconds. Now with all background software running it's more like 30 seconds.

Cons: My system build was using this Intel 330 SSD as the boot drive. About two weeks in I suddenly got an "insert bootable media or select boot drive" DOS message when trying to turn on my desktop, and BIOS stopped detecting it. Thinking this SSD had bricked, I decided to return to mechanical and so I bought an HDD to replace it. I reinstalled Windows 8 on the HDD and was using the SSD as a slave drive, but for some reason Windows detected the SSD but BIOS did not. I decided to reinstall onto the SSD but the Windows installer would not let me. I ended up cleaning the SSD in diskpart and to my relief the SSD install directory finally became active. My master SSD and slave HDD combo has been working flawlessly ever since.

Other Thoughts: I run the trim optimization tool in the Intel SSD Toolbox from time to time.

5 out of 5 eggsFast drive.

Pros: It is an SSD, so that means it is fast.
Windows 8 loaded very quickly on my new build.

Cons: Is not as fast as other SSDs. It seems Intel traded speed for reliability. But that is ok by me.
