Pros: Intel quality and reliability for a competitive price.

Cons: Yes you can get a comparable SSD for a bit less, but sometimes to save a few bucks now can cause a headache later. ;-)

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A401 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast, am told they are very reliable, low power

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Have only had it for a day now, but can't wait to see how it holds up over time. Use it as a boot drive in my gaming rig.

3 out of 5 eggsThis SSD is not very compatible with laptops

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A401 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good price, Intel quality.

Cons: This SSD (even with the latest firmware) has a known issue where it will not be found by a laptop's BIOS on a restart. A cold boot will always find the SSD though. This can be a real problem if you use the SSD for your system drive in one of the incompatible laptops. There is a thread devoted to this problem on the Intel SSD website. So far the laptops that have problems are Asus, Mac Probook, Lenovo, HP (many models) and probably quite a few others that have not yet weighed in.

Other Thoughts: I am hoping Intel eventually issues a BIOS fix for this SSD as I have an affected Asus laptop (G73 series) 10/2/13 Luckily I am using the SSD in the Data drive not the system drive. Still, I have to ALWAYS do a shutdown, as restarts will lose the D: drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for OS installation

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A401 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy installation. Makes to load OS (Win 7 home premium) literally less than in 10 seconds! Very stable, no problem what so far.
What else? Well - really nice design, even though I don't really care about it ))))

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: Good capacity for Win 7 (180 GB is more than most common 110 GB SSDs, & cost is much less then 240 GB... ). So for budget minded - ideal option!
No compromise in tech specs for a fraction of a price!
