Going on 10 yrs strong!

Pros: 2 of these 80GB SSDs are still going strong in RAID-0 after 10 yrs of heavy use! Lots of gaming and lots of adding and deleting off these drives as you could imagine being only 148GB after installed. I have not even redone my OS since I installed these on them 10 yrs ago. I cannot say enough about Intel and these drives. I upgraded my laptop to 2 Intel SSDs because of my experience with these drives.

Cons: Price to GB ration! I was watching for these and bought them as soon as they came out. For 2 of them I paid a stiff price. That to me is still insane to this day but I had the money and wanted the best. I definitely was not let down.

Other Thoughts: After using 2 of these in RAID-0 for the last 10 yrs with heavy gaming I have to say I still love them and they are still in this desktop I built back then. I still have them in RAID-0 and never had even a single hiccup. Sure I only have 160GB (2x80 which installed to 148GB) as the main system setup which I also keep 2-4 games installed but I still have no reason to change my desktop configuration as it pretty much maxed out. Don't get me wrong, I have a $3200.00 laptop also with faster and larger SSDs in a RAID-0 but I can say, this desktop is still gaming in 2018 with at least many of the great older games.
Originally I was going to use one as boot and one as a storage. I did that for about 2 months. Everything told me to try them in RAID-0 so I did and I can tell you there was a very noticeable increase even from the insane speed I was already experiencing with a single SSD for the first time. I will always put SSDs in a RAID-0 configuration as long as there is not a bottleneck. I’ve already looked into M.2 drives in RAID-0 on a new build and cannot wait until we just click a button and your OS, game or whatever you are doing is instant.

One of my favorite and fun builds:

P5B Deluxe
Intel QX9650 - upgraded from E6600
8800 GTX 768MB (about to RIP ye olde King!) upgraded from 8800 GTS
6GB Corsair XM2 PC6400
2 Intel X25 in Raid- 0
Antel 900 case
Zalman 9700 CPU fan
Corsair 800w Power Supply

great SSD

Comments: Bought this to be the boot drive in my Macbook Pro. It's been great so far, the laptop boots up and shuts down even faster than it did before. I removed the optical drive to make room for this and am using the existing 500GB drive for data.

A worthwhile upgrade

Pros: Got this as an upgrade for my laptop. Noticed an immediate performance increase, as well as slightly longer battery life. Switching from a HDD to an SSD is one of the most dramatic upgrades out there.

Cons: Price compared to that of hard drives.

1st SSD & and wont be the last!!!

Pros: Fast!!! Boots 64bit win7 in seconds.
Programs load and install very quickly including those .NET updates that used to take a 1/2 hr. to install.

Cons: Cost/GB - would've liked to have gotten a larger drive but couldn't justify the cost with an unknown product. :(
Does not come w/ a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter. No prob as there are no moving parts and it's in a stationary system. I just let it sit inside the case for now.

Other Thoughts: Used for HTPC build

Great Drive

Pros: Super fast drive, im running an i7 860 with only 4GB of DDR3 dual channel. Cold boot is about 35seconds on Win7 64x and reboot in less than a minute. Screaming fast while installing apps and running them as well.

Cons: Not many, though I hear rumors that the drive degrades over time...we'll see

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended for someone building a system to buy this drive as their primary OS drive.

Awesome SSD drive.

Pros: when i built my computer last year the only thing i didn't do was purchase a SSD drive for my system partition. this drive has completed my hopes for this rig. OS loads quickly, and Windows 7 automatically made all necessary changes to the way in which it operates.

Cons: I always need more drive space.

Other Thoughts: Good drive great buy
