Intel SSD 520 240GB Review

 

Intel has finally refreshed their enthusiast SSD line-up by launching drives built on second generation SandForce controllers. Is it another SF-2281 clone? Not at all! Intel's products come with exclusive firmware, which puts them one step above all...

I am sure no one doubts that second-generation SandForce controllers are perhaps the best platform for modern SSDs in terms of performance. Thanks to on-the-fly data compression algorithms, SandForce-based SSDs with fast flash memory have always...

Intel 520 240GB SSD RAID 0 Performance Review

 

In many ways Intel's new 520 240GB is one of the best SSDs currently on the market. With its unique mixture of large capacities, reasonable price –

SATA 2 Performance In a perfect world everyone investing in a new solid state drive would have access to a SATA 6Gb/s controller which could pass on

Speedy like an SSD should be

 

Solid and works well. My computer boots faster than ever after I installed it

It's Intel

 

This is my first SSD, and I am impressed by the speed. It takes Windows 7 about 10 seconds to load from off to ready-to-use

No Problems

 

I've had this SSD for over a year now (08/08/2012), installed into my Alienware M17 R4. Never ran into a problem, I did download the Intel SSD manager. Worth the investment.

Durable, speed, improved battery life, and capacity-price

Super fast

 

Works great as main drive will using second hard drive for games and programs

Super fast, reliable

Not enough storage space

The best for the price!

 

Why buy one when you can buy two for double the price! Either way, you won't regret the purchase.

Everything is a pro with one or two of these (or even more if you have RAID-capable ports to spare)! I am running two in a RAID0 and am getting 1GB/sec random reads/writes via AIDA64

Cons? For $265 and the best random access times in the business, plus 1GB/sec sustained transfer rates... you won't see me complaining quite yet : )

Very Quick

 

Very quick and stable. Haven't had any issues with speed or with reliability or losing data

A little on the pricey side compared to it's competition. It's kind of get what you pay for though

Solves a number of issues...

 

Perhaps I should wait longer to review this, but I'm too excited. This is my first SSD. It has surpassed all my expectations. Every other review is focusing on the speed. It is incredibly fast. The boot time alone is now a fraction what is was with my...

Superfast, Runs Cool, Solves Many Issues

None so far. Sure, the price seems high, but it's worth every penny

Very Happy

 

Plastic ring on top of the SSD. It's fine if you use the included mount, but not so good if you put this in a dual bay SSD mount. Voided the warranty to take off the plastic ring and shave down the screws and re-attach the plate. This is not Intel's...

Very nice. Love the Intel interface and the simple firmware updating
