5 out of 5 eggsIntel 730 240GB model

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, relatively high I/Ops and plays well with deep queue HBAs.

Cons: Not a 1TB for the same price?

Other Thoughts: We've used several of these SSDs (the 120GB variety) in several ZFS arrays as SLOG devices and L2ARC devices. They've worked very well but we need larger capacity especially in the case of L2ARC devices.

The durability of Intel drives is second to none until you break into PCIe enterprise solid state. The sacrifice in write speed is not an issue for us nor our clients. I've noticed people make complaints regarding the write speed, but who needs 550MB/s write speed regularly? Especially when foolish enough to run a RAID0 at the same time? Unless you're running an 800+ client transactional database, you can get by fine with the write speed of these drives and (more importantly) their I/Ops.

We use these drives (albeit smaller capacity) to supplement RAIDz1-2-3's (RAID5/6/7) as well as mirrored-striped arrays and they perform wonderfully. Haven't had one fail yet, and the current drives (the SLOGs anyway) see about 90 GB/day in writes.

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great SSD for all your quick information needs. Intel has software to migrate Files from your old HDD to this one.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I run this as my boot hard drive with 2 other mass storage hard drives

5 out of 5 eggswow

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I was amazed at how fast this ssd drive. I'm old school so waiting to boot up and stuff did not really bother me. I have an Intel i5 4690k , gaming 5 motherboard and a WD 1 TB drive. But wanted to try this out on my new build and wow this is by far the best investment I ever made. Don't know much about other models , but this Intel is a keeper. Installed windows and and had up in running in less than 30 min. I am still a newb in gaming but this is awesome .

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Buy you won't be disappointed

5 out of 5 eggsold grateful dead archivist here

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: i just think it kind of ironic that these drives are only slightly smaller cassette tapes we used back in the 70s and 80s. you could maybe get 90 minutes on one cassette...on this one drive i could easily put 90000 grateful dead shows/songs. amazing. and it got the steal your face kinda right there. should be just fine now.

Cons: none yet.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel 730 Series SSD 2.5" 240GB SATA 6bg/sMLC Internal Solid State Drive

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The SSD installed easily and with no problems. Performed clean install of W7 and other software and made this unit the boot drive. Unit boots in 28 seconds and all programs load instantly. This is a great upgrade to an HDD. The SSD also comes with its own maintenance utility to keep it functioning smoothly. Works so good my grand daughter took it over as hers. Swell.

Cons: None so far. Will update if it fails to function.

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great speeds. PC goes from being in a powered off state to my desktop in less than 12 seconds. Loading in games like Battlefield are minor.

Cons: None. Great SSD. About to buy a second one since first is so full

4 out of 5 eggsReliability over speed

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 4 eggs for my usage and environment. I built this rig for the man cave down in a horse stable I've built out. It gets very hot and very cold. The build is just not in a happy environment, yet I knew I needed an SSD. "Intel 730 without a doubt", came up as a shell shocker, sold.

It's a very reliable drive, will withstand these elements, and I just trust it fully.

Cons: 3 eggs, max, for other purchaser's usage, environment, and hopes for the true SSD experience. It's just kinda slow for an SSD with only the warm fuzzy feeling that it's industrial strength.

Skulls. It's white trash. Might as well put a pic of Kid Rock sitting on a Huyabusa in front of a mobile home in it's place. Skulls, flames, blinking lights...a builder needs none of this. Thankfully they go in brackets to never be seen again; Even if you have a window. (who displays that they have an SSD now days? We all do. They're $50. I wouldn't put this on display on any build).

It's the semi-pretty girlfriend. Not the best, don't have to work hard to get her, won't nag and bother you all the time, no maintenance required, and will never cheat on you.

Other Thoughts: I'm with the prior comment Timothy K. made on this purchase and review. I'm an all SSD user for all boot drives on every build and have been since they came out over 10 years ago now. Loved the snappiness of SSD's and haggled a bit over switching from 5x74G raptors in R5 due to capacity issues early on. After paying out for 5x150G raptors and enjoying the growing tech in the SSD field I knew I had to get on board fully from that point on out. If you want performance, you just go to SSD with no questions asked; Deal with capacity and storage in another thought process.

It's an SSD with good capacity, at a decent price, and Intel reliability. If it's your first SSD you won't be disappointed at all. If you're already well entrenched in SSD's and have used several before, you will be hugely disappointed by having very average speeds compared to others out there. Probably why it's on sale a lot here.

This is officially my 27th SSD and there's just a lot left on the table when I know Intel can do better. Also, none of them have ever failed so I question whether I, or anyone else, should really chose reliability over speed any more. I back up constantly, I don't run enterprise servers, and no drives have failed. I don't discourage this SSD as a purchase but I would look around for something more snappy with more actual performance.

Still running Mushkin, OCZ, Samsung, Crucial, and Intel of many variations. This was the first that really let me down since we're deep into the SSD evolution and is just ho-hum.

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive, buy if on sale

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: SSD speeds
240 g size
On sale is a good buy

Cons: none. Just one egg off for price/performance ratio compared to other drives.

Other Thoughts: In real time usage, running a 24/7, 10 cam security server with data and web usage, it is not noticeably faster than the 120g OCZ Agility 3 (sata 6) drive it replaced.
