This review is from: Intel DC S3700 Series Taylorsville SSDSC2BA800G301 2.5" 800GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Extremely fast I/O. 5 year warranty High writes Once tuned for linux, smooth as silk.
Cons: Price. One of the most expensive, if not the most expensive drive out there.
Other Thoughts: I don't personally own one of these, but at my work we purchased 5 of these drives and put them in a RAID 5 config for a NAS server we were building for our VMs. During benchmarks, we were getting 1.4-1.7 GBs per second on both read and write on average. Yes, I said GBs a second on a RAID 5. Note: There is alot to be done to achieve this speed. You need to change the I/O scheduler in linux, among other things. And disable read cache if you have a RAID card.
We now have about 12 VMs running now on this system and everything is lightning fast. Still much more room for VMs as well.
