Intel 520 Series Cherryville 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2 months and it boots up in 35-50 seconds every time.

Cons: It can't make me breakfast and it costs almost as much as I spend on my wife's birthday presents.

Other Thoughts: This, by far, the best of the 14 SSDs I have owned.
I never bothered to measure its performance because
but it has consistently exceeded my expectations. The only very good SSD I own is the Mushkin Chronos. It boots in about 75-90 seconds and has froze a couple of times as Windows was starting up. Two of my OCZs have been replaced on warranty 3 times and my Kingston and Sandisk have froze up quite a few times. I think that Intel SSDs are worth the extra cost...Still, I will wait for another sale to by another

Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast. Hasn't failed.

Cons: none...yet

Other Thoughts: I've been buying hard drives for 17 years and have had many of them fail, either DOA or after a short time. Lot's of lost data until I set up a failsafe backup routine. This is my 3rd ST2000DM001 and each one works as it should with no glitches or failures. I'm knocking on wood as I write this.

Intel 520 Series Cherryville 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I own several SSD's and this is the first one that has caused no problems AND comes close to its published specs.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: It is the only drive I own that I trust as my OS/programs drive, but that's not to say that I trust it enough not to have a completely cloned standing by.

I bought it with a Newegg sale price AND a $50 Intel rebate, but the regular price it still too high. SSD prices have been dropping significantly since the end of May '12, except for Intel. When Intel prices finally come down to earth, I will by another.
