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.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful SSD

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

Pros: Reliable, fast (what ssd isnt), and reliable... Did I say reliable? I work for an IT Consulting company.... we love intel SSDs and will upgrade workstations only to intel SSD drives due to their solid reliable history. We have used other SSD brands and had a higher turnover. I'm sure there's some other brands that are ok... but why risk it?

Cons: To a statistic junkie, there might be faster SSDs, but not enough to be noticeable for most users. Besides that, no Cons... they work great.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product, super slow shipping

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

Pros: Came with a bunch of extras, cable, drive holder, about 8 screws, an intel superspeed sticker worth like 10 horsepower and some transfer software.

Cons: I picked the free shipping, which is what it is. took a bit over 9 actual work days to get it. Wasn't in a rush, but usually things move a bit quicker than that.

4 out of 5 eggsDidnt detect via USB

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

Pros: I have no doubts this will be a stellar SSD! This is my 5th or 6th Intel SSD to purchase and install. To me a computer without a SSD is a dinosaur without this essential gear.

Cons: First time I have ever not had an Intel SSD detect to clone the old hard disk on a laptop via a USB connection (ASUS Q550LF-BBI7T07-B if you are interested). It is a shame I can see the drive within Windows even read or write to it if I so choose, but Intel's software can't.

Other Thoughts: CPU speeds are overrated if the processor is always waiting on old spinning rust to provide it with instructions to process.
