Not the top notch Intel product

Pros: I judge it to be less risky than other brands for the money

Cons: These are outsourced chips and ought not be as reliable as Intel's much higher quality variants.

Other Thoughts: For the money, I bought two and plan to rotate them in a backup plan.

Solid SSD

Pros: It is an affordable Intel ssd to use on my kid's PC.
Fast W10 load and fast boot.
Seems to be working fine.

Cons: The process of updating the Firmware sucks.
I had to get a 3rd party ISO Decoder to put the Firmware updater on a disc to do the update.
For some reason I couldn't get it on a USB so I used a Disc.

Other Thoughts: Intel should have a ISO Decoder program available for it's end users.

Terrible Product

Pros: -Faster boot than a SSHD
-Loads faster than a SSHD
-Total pros would be its faster than garbage...

Cons: -Freezes
-Hanging
-Attempted to fix with regedit solution and it worked for the freezing but, I still get miniscule hanging.

Other Thoughts: I'm salt :/ Also, did some looking around and intel made these to sell to businesses or government offices. They suck but, as you know businesses and gov't offices are intel fan boys. Most likely due to some sort of regulation. There garbage but, it's not made for the average consumer. Get a Samsung 850 Evo or pro. My write speeds are over 5,000 in rapid mode. it's amazing.

Great poroduct

Pros: Easy to install, fast. It was a replacement for 120 G drive which was running out of space.

Cons: Had to update the firmware which was not a problem. Intel Tool Box was not compatible with 540s first but is now with the latest version. Intel had a lot of info about 540s series on their website.

Other Thoughts: I did a clean installation of Windows 10 using Media Creator, worked great without any problem. I had to install the programs from scratch but it was worth the effort. The computer works much better.

No problems, great quality as far as I can tell

Pros: Note that at the moment of writing this I've had it for about a month. I bought it on sale for $80, and this is my first SSD, which I used for a clean install of Windows 10. I know a fair deal about them, but I'm not informed to the point of the nitty gritty details on everything the SSD does better from a user's perspective, so sorry I guess for any misunderstandings.

TL;DR - I'm just a dude that plays videogames, sorry if I do a dumb.

-Easy to install
-Just the right capacity for the average user, I think
-High quality as far as I can tell; so far Intel hasn't disappointed with CPUs or SSDs from what I've heard and experienced
-Much faster than standard HDDs; just over 75% full and still boots to the login screen in a few seconds
-Good for personal file storage, and probably makes navigating Windows Explorer/Windows faster in general (with the OS installed on it)
-I said personal file storage, but it also helps with load times in games if you're into that and have the extra space on the drive.

Cons: Nothing other than the usual gripes with SSDs in comparison to HDDs.

-Could always use more space that didn't cost a ton more...all in time, I guess
-The material they used for the outside feels weird.

That's all I've got. Good quality, enough space for me, hasn't exploded, the OS runs much faster, etc. I feel like I've gotten my money's worth, but it's probably possible to get more or less the same quality for less. Eyes open for sales!

Very Fast, Quality Drive

Pros: -Big improvement over my old setup
-Good price, esp with promo
-Have always had good luck with Intel quality

Cons: -Newegg demands I put a "con"...The drive did not whisper encouraging words to me as I installed it. Maybe Intel can work on that?
