4 out of 5 eggsAwesome in RAID 0

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Got some incredible speeds. Upwards of 750 mb/s read, and 500 mb/s write.

Cons: Unfortunately one of them error-ed out in 48 hours of installment.

Other Thoughts: Good thing: Newegg is currently replacing the one that started acting funky.

4 out of 5 eggsreliable but slow

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Reliable - not an ounce of trouble since I took it out of the box and installed it last November

5-year warranty

Cons: Slowest of more than 15 SSD's i've purchased last couple years. Still faster than your average spinner but not typical SSD performance from my experience.

Yes, it's running in AHCI mode. TRIM is enabled, and I've run the Intel Toolbox tools.

Other Thoughts: System:
AMD FX-8320
ASUS M5A99X EVP R2.0
16GB (2 x 8) Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz
ASUS R7 250 1GB GDDR5
Intel 530 Series 180GB MLC SATA III
etc.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome as advertised

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This thing, after reshuffling all my booting sequence and all the partitions and stuff, is basically screaming fast. I was booting to desktop in minutes, now I'm booting to desktop in mere seconds. It's extremely satisfying.

Cons: None that matter. Or at all, even.

5 out of 5 eggsPerformance from Intel

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast for read and write. Boot around 8sec with Windows 8.1 x64 I was going to buy an Samsung Evo when this Intel 530 turn in special.I was looking for a SDD with the better spec and Intel did suprise me alot with this one.

Cons: The SDD is still loose in the backet.

Other Thoughts: Would like to see Intel SSD less expensive because we can get other SSD for 30-80$ cheaper

5 out of 5 eggsFast!

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: As a gamer I love the speed that this HD gives me. I play some MMO's and games that before had long loading screens and large resource downloads but now I dont even notice any loading screens and perfect for impatient people like me.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsDecent performance for the price

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I got it on sale which made the price the primary determining factor.
Solid Intel validation and warranty.
SandForce controller is solid performer for most workloads.

Cons: Middle of the pack performance. Higher performing drives, such as my favorite the Samsung 840 Pro, are noticeably faster but the price reflects that.

Other Thoughts: I already need a larger size, but that's my own fault.

5 out of 5 eggsSupprised!

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I bought 2 of these because the Samsung 840 EVO Pros were out of stock. I am very familiar with the Samsung drives. I thought these would be OK because we use them in our SAN units. Boy I was impressed, I am actually getting faster transfer rates with these over my Samsung drives. I highly recommend these.

Cons: Intel SSDs in an AMD rig is blasphemy. OK at least they are hidden in the hard drive cage :) Also these are thin, you will have issues with laptops (which is why they come with spacers) you will also have issues mounting these behind your motherboard, the cables won't fit.

Other Thoughts: I run 2 of these in RAID 0, I know RAID 0 is not safe, but boy does it perform, I am getting 300,000+ IOPS with these drives. I have never ran these without RAID, so I can not comment on a single drives performance.
