5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's an SSD. It does what an SSD does.

Nice auto-updating software/firmware tools.

Purported Intel reliability seems to be accurate thus far.

Cons: Doesn't bench as highly as enthusiast level drives, but this makes no difference in the real world.

Other Thoughts: Like the reviewer below, I also regret not picking up more of these when they were on sale on Black Friday last year.

This went into a laptop with SATA II... it's been over a year now and according to the Intel diagnostic tool the drive still has something like 99% lifetime remaining.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Blazing Fast
High quality
Good software support

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: With Intel you alway get what you pay for. They are not the cheapest but quality is there. This SSD paired with a i7-4770k at stock speed 8 seconds boot! Compared to a Patriot and a Crucial, there is no question as which is the fastest/best quality!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: bought two for me and my son, speeds up loading of OS, quiet, no issues once installed.

Cons: I find installing SSD's in computer cases more of a pain than it needs to be. But this would be a problem with every SSD. I get really frustrated with work computers since they still have hard drives.

Other Thoughts: computer case should start making special slots for SSD if they haven't already.

5 out of 5 eggsWhy didn't I get 3.. or 4

Pros: Price performance.
I picked this thing up back 11/1/12 for $99.99.
What a buy. I only wish I'd bought 4. I have 2 computers and would love 2 in each in raid.
The one I did buy has just been great!

Cons: The only con is I did not buy more of them.

Other Thoughts: I love this utility that Intel provides.

I am sold on intel drives and processors. I swore off other processors about 6 years ago and now I'm swearing off other SSD's.

5 out of 5 eggs7.9 Experience

Pros: My weak link was my HD. Not anymore.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: SSD's are extremely fast. Coupled with the old fashion HDD's for data storage you get the best of both worlds.
