2 out of 5 eggsNot any faster than the Intel 520 Series I have

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

Pros: Fast....but not any faster than their previous year SSD......I think the Sandforce controller was better in the Cherryville.

Cons: Cheap means one thing, it's going to break faster......

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Install and Great Performance

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

Pros: Quick response and built by Intel.

Install it, run the migration software, and bam! --Youze gots yourself a high performance machine and it's just that easy. It's a big increase in speed over the .5TB that it replaced but I will stop short of calling it a speed demon. That may be because I'm spoiled. I installed this drive into a system running an i7-2600K, 16GB of 1333 memory, and an Intel board; and while it functions superbly, it's competition sits about a foot away. I use an i7-3770K with an Asrock board and running 16GB of 1600 memory and a Mushkin 240GB mSATA SSD for my HTPC. The HTPC is a bit faster so probably dulls my senses to appreciate this SSD's speed in my other system. All that aside, this is a great SSD and performs well. The free download of Intel's toolbox software allows easy point-and-click performance and maintenance tasks. I'm pleased with this purchase.

Cons: No cons, but Intel should make smaller sticker.

Other Thoughts: The migration won't happen if several HDDs are plugged in while trying to migrate. With only the 2 drives that are performing the migration plugged-in, this task is fast and extremely easy.

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

Pros: Overall this drive runs well and is extremely fast compared to my traditional hdd. The software that intel provides was easy to use, and I was able to copy everything from my old hard drive to my new ssd without a problem.

Cons: None so far.

3 out of 5 eggs730 Series 240 GB SSD

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

Pros: SSDs are faster than HDDs. If you have not added an SSD to your system yet it is a significant upgrade in speed no matter which one you get.

So easy to install even I couldn’t foul it up. The hardest part was putting it in a 3 1/2 “ bay and making sure the BIOS was configured properly.

Intel’s Data Migration software was not used; this was a clean install for all software.

Intel’s SSD Toolbox software was down loaded and installed and is a very nice plus. It installs firmware updates painlessly. It runs SMART diagnostics on the SSD and hopefully will give advance warning if issues develop before failure. It optimizes the Windows OS for SSD use (very nice as it was a chore on a recent build using an EVO SSD.) And, it runs trim on a schedule and or on demand.

The five year warranty.

It was well packed by Intel. The shipping packaging would have killed a HDD. It was in direct contact with the outside of the shipping box and there was inadequate packaging material, it rattled around in the shipping container (first time ever for a Newegg shipment for me.)
It arrived ahead of schedule.

So why only three stars?

It has only been in use a month and a half. I plan on updating this review after it has been in use a while; after a year or so of use as the primary storage / use for everything drive not just the OS and a few select programs. The software is nice but I bought an SSD – So after about a year of usage I’ll update this. (Please see other thoughts.)

Cons: Price – maybe (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: I bought this SSD as an experiment to test for myself if SSDs were ready to be used as the primary storage device. Based on reviews SSDs are infamous for not giving any warning before they fail. Then there are the recommendations to use them only for the OS and a few select programs transferring your file storage to a HDD. This is reportedly to save wear and tear on your SSD to extend its life; the five year warranty on this SSD is a nice safety blanket.

After researching a lot of SSDs this one was selected because it was supposed to be a workhorse of a drive. Intel is backing it with a five year warranty.
It was not the fastest in benchmark tests; solidly in the middle to near the top of the pack depending on the benchmark used by the tester.

But it is reported as consistently near the top in real life usage tests, e.g. gamming.
Additionally, it is supposed to be a variant of Intel’s DC S3500 server grade SSD built for home users not enterprise users. (Note: the 730 series has no error correcting memory.)

Let’s face it, the actual benchmark differences in speed between SSDs are faster than most of us can actually see when using our systems; they are all fast. I’m looking for solid SSD speed and long-term dependability – lots of write operations and deletes.

Again please recall, at this posting this SSD has only been in use for a month and a half.

This is the only drive in my system at this time. I run a lot of databases and spreadsheets some of which are large; some pull real time data from the internet and recalculate on a 300 second cycle refresh rate. I create and revise documents. I down load a lot of all of those things. Additionally, I like to check out different programs, which results in a lot of installations being removed. In plain language I am doing all the things on an SSD I did on a hard drive despite all the pundits’ recommendations against it.

The system this SSD is installed in was built four years ago:

Mother board: Asus P7P55D with “SATA revision 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 respectively delivers a native transfer rate of 1.5Gbit/s, 3.0Gbit/s and 6.0Gbit/s.”

CPU: i7 – 860 Lynnfield over clocked to 3.46 GHz based on Cupid CPU-Z.

Primary Storage: Intel 730 240 GB SATA 6Gb/s. It formatted at 223.47 for a 16.53 GB loss. Some loss on formatting is normal and user mileage may vary. (No stars deducted now or in the future for that.)

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so great

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

Pros: Plugged it in, fired up the computer, migrated my OS from a HDD to the Intel 730 Series using Paragon. No hiccups at all, seems very fast.

Cons: -None so far

Other Thoughts: So I've only had the SSD a few days, so if anything changes I'll come back and update this review.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Consistent

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

Pros: Just put this in a new rig, installed a load of software and Microsoft updates, and it's still clicking along at like-new speed. Impressive compared to so many other SSD's I've owned that work well for about the first hour or two and then give up the ghost.

Cons: Price is a little high, but then again you're getting a premium product.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a fast and consistent SSD drive to build a long-term system around, this one is worth a look.
