5 out of 5 eggsSmooth and Fast

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Cuts boot time and program loading time in half.
Intel technology is rock solid.

Cons: Price, but everyone knows that!

Other Thoughts: Installed as upgrade boot drive in Dell Studio XPS 8000.
Clone software is excellent. Took about 30 minutes to clone 90Gb...
Came with 18 inch SATA cable, 6 inch molex power adapter, and a nice heavy gauge zinc plated desktop mounting plate with screws.

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive, poor packing

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Excellent drive. Pairs very well with my existing pair of Intel 520 series. Installation was simple into NZXT 820 tower.

Cons: I was very disappointed with the packaging. The drive was bouncing around inside the box with half the required air pads. I thought it might be DOA.

Other Thoughts: Good price point.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with old AMD and e-350

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast fast fast. It made everything snappy. I liked it in my old desktop and I'm tickled in the better prepared laptop. It has AHCI and 4GB memory.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Works with AMD !!
I bought one about 3 months ago for a 2006 X2 nvidia C51 system and it worked so good I got one for my AMD laptop e-350n Acer 5253-bz661. I found an HHD caddy helpful system migration and used it for HHD storage.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I will begin by saying that these SSDs are just wonderful. The quality seems top notch (as I would expect from Intel). I own a total of three of Intel SSDs, two of the 520 series 180GB versions and this "newer" 530 series 240GB version and have not had a single problem with any of them. They are incredibly fast and responsive and strongly recommend them.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: When I buy an SSD, I chose Intel every time.

5 out of 5 eggsDependable Drive

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Replaced my original Corsair SSD because the older drive kept having problems. So far, the Intel drive has worked wonderfully, and I was finally able to switch from IDE to AHCI without running into crazy errors.

The included migration software made it easy (and free) to migrate the contents of the old drive.

Cons: None. Will update if the drive suddenly fails or something, but it's been working like a dream so far.

3 out of 5 eggsNot for laptops running win8.1 it seems

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I bought 2 of these drives and I am sure they are stellar performers on systems that can run them. I am sure once I repourpose them to other systems I own they will work out great.

Cons: On 3/3 laptops I have attempted to install these drives to(2 ASUS and one HP all running win8.1) the system becomes unstable even with drive attached to the USB after using Intels Data Migration software. Perfmon shows drive going to 100% utilization and then nothing else works.

Other Thoughts: I sincerely hope Intel gets with MS and work to resolve the issue with a firmware update, as I want to put these in the systems they were designed for. My thinking is it has something to do with the recovery partions file systems from their respective OEMs. Additionally, tried Apricorns laptop imaging software with the same results.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Comes with a 3.5" bay adapter, screws, SATA cable, and a power cable adapter, if needed.

Cons: Screws were too long. They bottomed out in the drive before they bit into the adapter plate. Used some other screws.

Other Thoughts: Installed these in HP Z420 CAD computers, taking the place of the factory hard drive. They work great and they're quick.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It is wicked fast, if it works.

Cons: After about 2 months, Windows 8 reported that volume manager had crashed and then BSOD. After that, my ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition stated this drive had failed the S.M.A.R.T Test.

I tested it with another utility from another PC...Failure has been confirmed.

Other Thoughts: Currently in the process of performing a Warranty RMA with Intel, since this occurred outside the 30 Day Newegg Return Period. I will be very critical in their customer support and will post again.

So far, Intel support is not looking good.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW!

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works like a champ in my old laptop GM45. It takes longer for the bios to post than to boot! I am definitely doing this to my desktops soon! Oh yeah, It indirectly boosted my battery life by 2hrs!

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Main SSD

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Lots of space
Relatively cheap
Data migration was excellent
Intel quality

Cons: Its not 1 TB...

Other Thoughts: The data migration software worked flawlessly. I deleted some files to get my old HDD to around 200GB and I was able to easily transfer everything, including my OS (Windows 8) to the SSD. I ran a few benchmarks and they were slightly slower than other Intel SSD's I found online. I attribute this to running the benchmark with a nearly full SSD.
