5 out of 5 eggsWhat can I say, but FAST !

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5" 480GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy installation and setup, follow the instructions from the downloadable software and it's a no-brainer. Total setup time was less than an hour and system now boots up in less than 15 seconds and programs open within a second or two.

Cons: Non so far.

Other Thoughts: Used this to upgrade my old general purpose desk-top. (Dual Core 2 8400 CPU, in an Intel DX38BT motherboard w/8 GB RAM, Win 7 64 bit) This was my first use of an SSD and I am thrilled. Cloning of the old C drive went extremely smooth and took less than an hour. Instructions were very easy to follow. Boot time significantly reduced, used to take close to a minute or more with considerable delay time to open programs. Now it's less than 15 seconds from entering my password to fully functional and programs open almost instantly. Very glad I did this and I'll be updating my video editing machine and laptops to SSD's later this year on price dips.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well and is blazing fast

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5" 480GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: If you want a solid state disk that will perform well, this is one that will. It worked flawlessly installing Windows 8.1 from a flash drive in UEFI mode. Booting and loading of applications from this drive happens incredibly fast. Also, the outer casing is all metal. In a world filled with plastic junk, that's a definite pro in my book.

Cons: The only con that I can give is that it doesn't come with a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter, but that was cheap enough to get.

Other Thoughts: I don't do bench marking and all of the things that people who are hard core about picking a product apart do, however, my system's performance has rocketed skyward thanks to this drive. Get it while it's on sale, because otherwise it's quite expensive.

I bought it mostly because my old Windows 8 configuration was on a disk formatted in MBR and my new UEFI system was requiring me to reboot immediately after starting from a cold boot (CPU-Z and such would freeze detecting the CPU and some other programs wouldn't run). I figured that while I was having to re-install anyway, it would make sense to re-install to a solid state disk.

4 out of 5 eggsSnazzy look not an easy install

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5" 480GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price

Cons: Installation - Fancy design on the case for no one to see as it is enclosed

Other Thoughts: I had been thinking on upgrading to a SSD in my laptop for a long time. I saw this on sale and decided to pull the trigger. I did not order the USB to SATA cable - something that I should have after trying to figure out how to install this drive. I went back and checked the reviews and low and behold a tool kit with cable was included as a promotion - had I waited a week I would not have had to wait for the cable to arrive.

I tried to make a back up copy onto a My Book, however when I went to restore it to the SSD I ran into the problem of the SSD being slightly smaller than the hard drive I took out and would not back up.

I did not use the software included with the SSD to clone the hard drive when I got the cable, I researched and found a free clone program that was easier to use and allowed me to shrink the drive by a few gig's to make it work.

Once I finally got it cloned and installed I am very happy with the results. My laptop now flies when booting up! Much faster program access. Should have upgraded a long time ago!

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied - No Complaints

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5" 480GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I'm satisfied. Tested for this review with a 10.0 GB video file. Copy and transfer speeds from a USB 3.0 powered external hard drive were constant around 140 MB/s +- 10.

Transfer speeds from one location on the SSD to another started very strong around 400 MB/s and bottomed out a few seconds later to remain constant at about 185, again give or take 10.

I'm not a storage drive expert, I don't use any fancy testing software, but I know it reads fast enough for me, and the write is faster than anything else I have, including a smaller size Mushkin SSD I upgraded from.

Drive is pretty, connections are pretty standard and there's nothing wrong with them, they're solid enough. Came with 5 mounting screws in case I lose one sometime... That extra one is going with the others in the spare computer screw box...

Comes also with a SATA cable about 2 feet long, kinda dinky, even has smaller connectors than I'm used to but better than nothing. Also comes with a mini-disk for telling you about how to transfer data or something, idk I haven't touched it. Lastly, there's a cool looking sticker that says speed demon with blue flames coming off it. If you're into that sort of thing...

Got it on sale for $210 with a $10 off promo code, Newegg email sub is about the only subscription I enjoy getting.

Cons: It doesn't talk to me and reassure me that everything is going to be okay.

5 out of 5 eggsgood SSD

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5" 480GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Solid build, very smooth running windows 8.1 from it. Very easy to install

Cons: its upside down in my case, just an annoyance not really a con

Other Thoughts: a smaller case badge would be nice, the big sticker it comes with is cool but it doesnt go with my color scheme

4 out of 5 eggsNice Features

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5" 480GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, Reliable and the software you can get for it is very nice. Provides an extremely easy GUI to follow.

Cons: The free version of Acronis data Migration does not do dynamic drives. If you would like to migrate Dynamic drives then you need to purchase the full version. Luckily I had an enterprise level imaging software available that made any and all data migration seamless.

Other Thoughts: Initial experiences are excellent and the hardware delivers where it promises.

5 out of 5 eggsSkully

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5" 480GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I took a chance on ordering two of these. I have Samsung 830pro & 840pro Which are fast. These are more solid as they are aluminum. They are faster than the Samsung. You won't be sorry. The more you throw at them the more they preform. Screaming fast. The software is Acronis which works great. Fasf, Fast, Faster.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Wish the skull was made into it & would be nice with 2 red lights for the eyes
