5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great for about 5 months now

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A401 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works great, easy to set up, nothing special. Installed Windows 8 Pro on it, works awesome, no glitches. Really fast. Replaced OCZ SSD with this HDD. OCZ instantly died after about 2 years, taking so much of important data with it into grave. Warranty was over, so my money are gone. Now I enjoy Intel, hoping same thing wont happen. Of course my PC is ON 24/7 so I got at least 18,000 hours from OCZ, still good.

Cons: Nothing bad, only good

5 out of 5 eggsConsistent Intel SSD Performance

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A401 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Consistent performance. I have exclusively used Intel SSDs since 2011 and have never been disappointed, unlike some drives from other manufacturers with buggy firmware.
- Adds new life into a ~2007 Toshiba T135 laptop running Windows 7.
- Intel's SSD toolbox makes optimizing Windows for an SSD simple. Easy to schedule periodic TRIM.

Cons: - Not the highest performing drive, nor the cheapest drive for a given capacity.

Other Thoughts: - Super thin (5mm). Comes with a plastic stick-on adapter to make it 7mm. This was needed for installation into the Toshiba.
- No free SATA cable or 2.5" to 3.5" adapter with OEM packaging. If you want that make sure you order the retail packaging.

5 out of 5 eggsreliable

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A401 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: reliability

Cons: price - performance is good but not great, there are much faster drives for a similar price.

Other Thoughts: When shopping for hard drives my priority is reliablity first with price/performance being an after thought. I've seen enough SSD's to know that intel #1 when it comes to SSD reliability and this is why they are my first choice.

4 out of 5 eggsIntel 530 SSD - 240 GB

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A401 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast drive. Purchased in early March 2014.

Cons: The drive failed just before Christmas. PC did not boot, the drive didn't show in the BIOS, no longer powering up. Contacted Intel support and received RMA number after a description of the problem. Within 24 hours of their receipt of the failed drive I received a replacement.

Surprised with the excellent service w/ no hassles.

Other Thoughts: Using Crystal DiskMark over time, the drive Reads have held steady at 450 MB/s while Writes declined over 3 months from 326 MB/s to 140 - 150 MB/s - and have then held steady. This is consistent with what I've read on performance degradation over time for this drive.

However, this is not apparent in day-to-day usage and the drive is quick.

3 out of 5 eggsFast but crash prone with large writes

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A401 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This drive is extremely fast with programs and boot. Works great except for when it doesn't work at all.

Cons: The drive was installed as a data drive and then an OS drive in a workstation and crashed nearly every time during large write operations.

Other Thoughts: I hoped a firmware update would have fixed the crash issues but no luck.

5 out of 5 eggsFaster than my CPU

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A401 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The CPU is now the bottleneck. Drive is so fast that my CPU stays at 100% many times. I have an Intel Core 2 Duo P8600.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: A must for gaming. However make sure your system can process the data as fast as it comes in.
