Fastest and most reliable SSD you can own

 

I own 2 of these 520 series Cherryville's and a 330 series Maplecrest 120gb. Intel makes the fastest SSDs!!! I have had one for over 2 years and I loved its performance so much I ordered a second. Don't bother with the 530 series you want the...

ALL 4 FAILED

 

I've used these in multiple settings and systems, they've all failed. At different times, in different conditions.

All outweighed by Failure Rate

Failed. I purchased four of these drives for use with the Black Magic HyperDeck Studios. I formatted the drives properly, used them for about a month when randomly one of them just stopped being recognized, by my gear or even Disk Utility. Tried...

great with Intel chipset

 

Luckily enough my laptop was a willing transplant patient. If I hadn't had an Intel chipset board to use this with I would have been infuriated. I honestly don't know how to rate this. If you do have compatible hardware it's a 5; if not it's a 1/4 of...

This thing is faster than any other SSD I've owned if installed with an Intel chipset. That is the chipset, not the CPU

Initially installed in my desktop which is AMD and couldn't tune or anything as the Intel SSD toolbox couldn't communicate with it because it wasn't an Intel chipset. This should in no way be a hindrance for a drive

Small screws

 

More generally, it would be nice if newegg had screws available. It is not the first time that I would like to purchase small screws and I find it difficult to get them.

For the moment, I assume that the performance is good. Packaging was good

To make this ssd fit into a 7 mm slot, you have to remove a plastic part. This is quite easy to remove, but the screws provided do not fit after removing this plastic part (the black one). Intel did not care to provide appropriate screws. On internet,...

Great Drive

 

Does not list it but came with a 3.5 conversion plate very easy to install and loads up windows 7 in about 10 seconds with my i5 3570.

Laptop problems

 

The reason I gave two stars is the drive is very fast, and the laptop continues to work - with occasional pauses - as long as you disable any sleep or hibernation functions.

Newegg willcall service worked perfectly, I was able to pick up the Intel 520 240 GB SSD a few hours after I ordered it

I selected the Intel SSD based on the reviews here and on my experience with other Intel products. This Series 520 240 GB drive was purchased to replace the failed drive in an Asus U50A laptop. I did a completely fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium...

Works for me!

 

Installed in a Dell with SATA2 controller and works as I expected. Boots in under 30 seconds. The Intel toolbox is no big deal but it really doesn't matter. Setup the original drive as data storage and I'm good to go.Ordering was a breeze, got it on...
