Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Really speeded up my old desktop 09/12/2014

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: Raised my Windows 7 Base score from a 5.7 to a 7.7. My old score was for the 8 year old WD Raptor that I had been using on the system and now my processor is my slowest component.
Boots much faster and loads programs really fast.
Data migration program worked correctly and very quickly.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I have tried a SSD in the past and was somewhat pleased with the performance difference, but this drive connected to a SATA 3 port has REALLY speeded up my system. I was really impressed by how quickly the Intel Data Migration software transfered my old drive to this one and after changing my boot device in the BIOS, it booted without a problem and has been running quickly and quietly. I had forgotten what it was like to not have my Raptor chattering all the time.

Pros: Immediatly recognized by my system at 1600 mhz and no crashes so far.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I added this to the 6 GB of memory on my system and it is blazing fast now. My setup is a Core i-7 960 on a GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard with a Corsair Force 115 GB system drive. I am able to edit HD videos and do other things with the system while it is encoding. I haven't had any problems at all. Really like the size of the heatsink on this memory.

Pros: Good picture with a bright easily readable display. It has multiple types of inputs that make it easy to connect to your devices.

Cons: Don't expect to get quality sound from the speakers, but I have never found a monitor that did offer anything close to what you get from even a cheap set of speakers.

Other Thoughts: I have a several monitors of this series from Asus and have been pleased with them for the past couple of years.
