5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product.

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

Pros: I bought two of these on a Shell Shocker deal for a good price. I am using them in an ASUS G75VW-TH laptop raided in zero. They have been going strong now for over a year.

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great Intel SSD

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

Pros: The drive is FAST. Intel provides great drivers, and reliability is best-in-class. Also, the Intel SSD toolbox is a great utility that is available for free with all Intel SSD's. Even though Intel SSD's don't top the charts, their real-world performance is great, especially the drives with Intel controllers.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is my 7th Intel SSD. I'm using Intel SSD's in 5 different computers. One (a 320 series) is more than 5 years old and is still going strong.

5 out of 5 eggsDont cheap out on SSD's!

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

Pros: - Reliability and quality of Intel
- Included software lets the user keep track of the health and other properties of the SSD.
- SSD life still at 100% after 6 months of everyday use and a nasty power surge!
- Computer boots up before the Win 7 logo animation finishes!

Cons: - Nearly 2x as pricey as other similar capacity SSD's - not budget oriented!
- Smaller capacity means you need to prioritize what software to install on it (OS, antivirus, etc)

Other Thoughts: - Keep the OS and other critical programs on this SSD, and pair it with an HDD or another high capacity SSD for everything else.
- This is the first and only SSD I've bought for personal use - I would definitely recommend Intel if your budget allows!

1 out of 5 eggsImpossible To Migrate Image From The Old Non-SSD Hard Drive

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

Pros: I was not able to find any pros as I returned this SSD hard drive back for refund.

Cons: I don't have a Windows CD as my DELL XPS PC came with Windows 8.1 pre-installed to my old larger size non-SSD hard drive.
I tried to migrate the image of the old non-SSD hard drive using the following methods:

a) Windows Native System Image (ie: Backup and Restore tool that comes free with Windows OS)
b) Symantec Norton Ghost image
c) Clonezilla image
d) Intel Migration Tool (power by Acronis TrueImage) designed specifically for this SSD hard drive model

I wasted a LOT of time and each method above failed. This is VERY frustrating and painful. I work in IT field so this migration should have been a walk in a park for me. However this was not so. And Intel's Migration Tool froze on every attempt and I tried multiple times. To make the long story short if you don't have a Windows Installation CD avoid this SSD drive at any cost as you won't be able to migrate your previous OS image.

Other Thoughts: You can get a Samsung EVO SSD drive of the same size twice as cheap. I have been told be a co-worker who purchased it that he was able to migrate the data from the old non-SSD harddrive using Samsung Migation Tool successfully. He was up and running on the new Samsung SSD in about 15 minutes after starting the data migration process.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel 730 Series 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDSC2BP240G4R5

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

Pros: My five year old computer was transformed into a speed demon especially while running Dragon voice recognition.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Data migration was an issue with Intuit programs but that is a Quick Books issue not an Intel issue

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

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

Pros: Fast, reliable

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I did not pay nearly what the price is now for this drive as I got it on sale. SSD's are one of the greatest improvements you can make to a personal computer. They make even older and slower computers a lot quicker to execute commands and startup/shutdown. Would not own a computer from now on without an SSD as the main OS drive.

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

Pros: Fast, I love the Intel drives. They just work and work well.

Cons: More now than it was last year at this time, otherwise I'd get a second for Raid 0.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst SSD was a huge success!

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

Pros: All pros in my book, lightning fast. Sleek design and feels really well made.

Cons: If I really had to dig to find something wrong, it would be that there is no mounting hardware that comes with it (Not really a huge deal, just would add to my screw collection.). Also, the SATA cable is kind of cheaply made (but I'm sure most have there own preferred cables). It's awesome regardless.

Other Thoughts: Just buy this SSD!

5 out of 5 eggsRun perfectly

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

Pros: Fast, and so far very reliable. I purchased two of these for their noted reliability and lengthy warranty.

Cons: None that outwardly strike me. I could have done without the skull graphic, but in some company it's actually a great conversation starter about the machine in general. Meh.

Other Thoughts: I put them into RAID 0. The speed is incredible and I'm not sure I would have felt as safe putting many other SSDs into RAID 0. Been working absolutely flawlessly for almost a year now. Could not be happier.
