5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: - Consistent speed
- Seems reliable as others pointed out. My previous SSDs started to freeze after few months.
- Migrating the data from my old inferior SSDs were incredibly easy

Cons: - Migration tool is only for Intel SSDs. Why?

Other Thoughts: Overall satisfied with the purchase and the most reliable SSD I used so far. You get what you pay for. Not the fastest SSD or the cheapest 120GB SSD, but 5 years warranty cant be beat.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth The Money

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: 5 year warranty and Intel quality. What could be better?

SSD migration software that is almost "foolproof". Every Windows 7 installation that I have migrated has gone smoothly and without trouble.

The SSD Toolbox application is useful on Windows and easy to understand.

Cons: Not the cheapest SSD in this size range, but worth the money for the long warranty.

The SSD migration software only works with an Intel SSD as the destination drive. The software is "Windows only", but make the CD and try that on non-Windows systems.

Had to download the SSD Migration and SSD Toolbox software from Intel's web pages.

Other Thoughts: This SSD is my default choice for 'boot" drives in Windows and Linux systems.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid device, decent speeds.

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: It's an Intel product, you can usually trust Intel. speeds are pretty decent. looks pretty sweet inside my system (NZXT H440 it's in the window)

Cons: It's a Sandforce, I have yet to have any problems but it's only a matter of time apparently.

5 out of 5 eggsStable drives

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: Using 2 of these drives in a RAID 0 array. They perform well, but anything with a sandforce controller knows the stories. Great drives, im sure they will be stable for YEARS since they are using INTEL NAND. Getting 950MB/s Reads 400 MB/s Writes using AS-SSD benchmark on a X99 chipset

Cons: SANDFORCE Controller!

Other Thoughts: Performance is great with 2 in a RAID setup, I like INTEL NAND and will last for years...

3 out of 5 eggsNot detected in BIOS on multiple systems

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: The Intel SSD also comes with a mounting bracket, SATA data & power cables, spacer and decal. Many other SSDs on the market do not include any of these items. This is a major plus.

Cons: I bought 2 of these SSDs and neither would be detected in the BIOS or Windows. I tried the SSDs on my desktop (an older P67 mobo) and also a newer Windows 8 laptop. Neither systems would detect the SSD despite various BIOS settings. I could only access the drive through a USB enclosure. I have never had problems installing SSDs on either of my systems (including the previous Intel 520). Docking 2 eggs because of the failure of both drives in 2 different systems. Intel support is vague on this issue, though some in community forums suspect an issue with the DC32 firmware.

Other Thoughts: I'm a bit disappointed as I have had success with Intel drives before. I find the Intel support pages to be lacking. I have decided to switch to Samsung SSDs instead - their superior performance & reliability/warranty nullifies Intel's reputation as the ONLY "reliable" SSD manufacturer.
