Pros: one of the best mechanical drives out there.
Cons: its a mechanical drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: quick to boot, processing load to spare. Skyrim, chrome, stream software (stream active), mumble, itunes, and steam bring it to 65 % load. the same setup would bring an i5 2500k to its knees.
Cons: not really a con: intel just needs to forget about integrated graphics or just keep it on the motherboards.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 30 gigs. can hold a 64 bit installation of windows 7 or 8.
Built for caching to mechanical drives. Cheap SSD.
Cons: only 30 gigs. Slow write speed.
Other Thoughts: This is a caching SSD. It has the lowest write speed of the 525 series, however it still writes faster than the fastest mechanical drives. Which is exactly how a caching drive should be built. It is a great upgrade from the Intel 311 20 gig SSD cache. If you are looking for a 525 series as a boot drive get the 64 gig or higher capacities. Those have higher write speeds and will handle better as a storage/boot device.READ FULL REVIEW
