Great SSD

Pros: Bought this for the SED feature for use in my laptops. It's very easy to use, just set the HDD password on installation.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this SSD, and bought another one after my experience with the first. Probably will buy another one in the M.2 form factor as well. There was a review for the 1 TB drive saying that Linux would not work with these drives. That has not been my experience. I have two laptops that are dual boot Windows/Linux laptops (both Lenovo Thinkpads). I just used Clonezilla to copy my existing drives, and gparted to resize the partitions. IIRC, I reinstalled Linux just to get rid of the LVM crypto partitions that I no longer needed.

Poor experience - would avoid

Pros: -Fast when not blue screening my Win7 clone
-Intel SSD management software is nice
-Firmware update is relatively straightforward

Cons: -Continual blue screens
-System stability
-SFC /scannow found problems
-Disk integrity check triggered on first boot
-Old firmware shipped (031c - newest is 036c)

Other Thoughts: Used Macrium Reflect and Easeus Partition manager to clone a 256GB Samsung drive (system disk) to this Intel drive. Then the problems started. Blue screen after first boot into the new Intel drive. Let Win7 do it's initial discovery and that requested a restart. Disk integrity check triggered - lots of errors found. Login produced additional errors about damaged DLLs. Ran SFC /scannow ... problems found. Verified superfetch/prefetch off. Updated drive firmware from 031c to 036c via boot ISO. That seemed to help some...however after attempting to open several programs, freezes started occurring. Rebooted. Seemed better for about 30 mins then blue screen. The host machine is a Lenovo W540 laptop. Put the Samsung back in - no issues. Will test in another machine but most likely going back for refund.

Recommendation is for other buyers to avoid and use another brand.

Got it on sale for $128; couldn't be happier with it.

Pros: - Blazing fast. My operating system boots the moment the POST finishes its cycle, which for my motherboard takes about eight seconds. This is even after I finished loading all of my programs and games and whatnot onto it.

- Looks really sleek and nice, goes well with the color scheme of my case. It fits the aesthetic perfectly.

Cons: - So far, not a thing. If I do run into problems though, I'll be sure to revise this.

Other Thoughts: This SSD is not only good for running your OS, but also certain games. Not ALL games (you don't want too much being written onto an SSD. Limited write cycles and such), but certain games. For example, Dark Souls III is one of my favorite games, so naturally, I play it a lot. When you teleport back and forth from Firelink Shrine on either console or on an HDD, it takes between 15-20 seconds sometimes. Installed on this SSD, it takes about four seconds.

All in all, I have been very happy with this SSD, and although I have not done any precise speed benchmark tests, quite frankly I do not care and do not intend to. I got this card for a good value and it works extraordinarily well. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants great SSD performance but doesn't also want to spring the extra cash for an EVO.

Also, the five year warranty definitely is awesome to have.
