This review is from: ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: None I can think of.
Cons: The board has a BIOS issue where it forgets the hard disk configuration boot order, every time I unplug the computer. This only affects people that have both RAID as well as regular HDs and want to boot from RAID.
The CPU came loose, with the computer not booting anymore. Their tech support is fairly useless. Pushing the CPU in solved the problem.
Pros: I initially had this drive in a Dell XPS desktop, but after purchasing a Lenovo T-Series laptop I moved it there. This was mostly because Lenovo didn't offer SSDs larger than 128Gb.
I didn't have any issues with the drive until I moved it in the Lenovo Thinkpad, and even there it was running well for a few months - until now.
Cons: After owning it for less than year, it's causing a heap of problems now.
It started a few days ago, when I would get strange errors in the System event log (running on x64 Win7), complaining about Disk I/O errors.
Naturally I assumed that this was some flaw in Windows, since I had never had any problems with the HD.
Now, some files on my disk are unreadable. However, they are not unreadable in the usual sense - Windows will just hang for about 10 minutes, before it tells me that the file cannot be read (all the while the HD light is permanently on).
I have since started doing a checkdisk, which has been sitting at the same file record for about 45 minutes.
Other Thoughts: This is my 4th SSD, and I have not had problems with SSDs before. I also have a 32Gb, a 64Gb and a 128Gb. They all run fine, and are older than the intel.
As such, I would stay away from intel SSDs. I will certainly not get an SSD from them again.
To be fair, my system is still booting and working, with the exception of some routine hangs every morning.
