This review is from: Intel DC S3500 Series SSDSC2BB240G401 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Power loss data protection, 256 bit AES encryption, 5 year warranty, and performance consistency.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I picked up 2 of these drives to test tiered storage in Server2012 r2. I had 8 WD RE4 1TB drives averaging 600 IOPS and after adding these and implementing tiered storage I average 26000 IOPS. The setup seems to handle all the VM workloads without slowing down and I’ll probably implement a similar setup in my production environment when 2012r2 is released.

This review is from: Intel DC S3500 Series SSDSC2BB120G401 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Much better small block read & write performance that the consumer model SSD's and the price difference between it and the consumer SSD (Intel 520) is not that great.
Other Thoughts: I plan on purchasing more of these drives in the future to set up a RAID 5 array for frequently accessed data
