Awesome in RAID 0

 

Good thing: Newegg is currently replacing the one that started acting funky.

Got some incredible speeds. Upwards of 750 mb/s read, and 500 mb/s write

Unfortunately one of them error-ed out in 48 hours of installment

Intel is good

 

Intel makes nice reliable SSD's

Fast ; My i5 desktop system, from pushing the power button to the desktop, is up in approximately 12 seconds, and everything else loads...BAM! Fast

No Cons

reliable but slow

 

System: AMD FX-8320 ASUS M5A99X EVP R2.0 16GB (2 x 8) Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz ASUS R7 250 1GB GDDR5 Intel 530 Series 180GB MLC SATA III etc.

Reliable - not an ounce of trouble since I took it out of the box and installed it last November ; 5-year warranty

Slowest of more than 15 SSD's i've purchased last couple years. Still faster than your average spinner but not typical SSD performance from my experience ; Yes, it's running in AHCI mode. TRIM is enabled, and I've run the Intel Toolbox tools

ehh...

 

Expected better from Intel.

Looks good ; Faster than a mechanical by a lot

Same price per GB as my Toshiba ssd, yet noticeably slower

Awesome as advertised

 

This thing, after reshuffling all my booting sequence and all the partitions and stuff, is basically screaming fast. I was booting to desktop in minutes, now I'm booting to desktop in mere seconds. It's extremely satisfying

None that matter. Or at all, even

Performance from Intel

 

Would like to see Intel SSD less expensive because we can get other SSD for 30-80$ cheaper

Fast for read and write. Boot around 8sec with Windows 8.1 x64 I was going to buy an Samsung Evo when this Intel 530 turn in special.I was looking for a SDD with the better spec and Intel did suprise me alot with this one

The SDD is still loose in the backet

Perfect!!!!

 

Would have preferred the 240GB drive instead, but it was a deal I couldn't refuse!!!

Cloned my laptop hard drive with this guy to boost performance of my outdated laptop. This actually killed two birds with one stone per se, not only did it boost my boot time, but my battery life has been greatly expanded

I had to wait for "black friday" to get a deal on this

Good from the get go!

 

ASRock Z87M Extreme4 EVGA GTX 770 SC CORSAIR Vengeance Pro DDR3 EVGA 650 GOLD PSU Intel 530 180GB SSD CORSAIR 350D windowed Corsair H110 (will fit up top)

Great price point for the storage size. Small, lightweight and fast. After everything was installed and updated it was just as fast as a Corsair Force GT. I am going to grab another one when they go on sale again

None I can think of
