5.0 out of 5 stars Intel has done it 29 Sep 2012
So Intel took the Sandforce controller and made it into the perfect SSD controller the competition couldn't,
I installed in this into a Mid 2010 13 inch Macbook Pro and loaded Snow Leopard and a 30GB partition of windows 7 onto it.

Two things to keep in mind
1) turn on trim on both windows and mac os x,
on windows this optimization guide is pretty useful: [...] [google for Sean's Windows 7 guide]
on mac os x you need an app called "Trim enabler", and at least 10.6.8 of OS X.
this guide is also useful:[...] [google for Ssdtweak Mac OS X]

2) turn off disk sleep on both os x and windows energy settings, so that the disk can use its garbage collection while idling

No freezes/blue screens/os x beachballs whatsoever, with no noticeable real world performance loss over more expensive drives.
Worth noting is an incompatibility with the Nvidia MCP79 chipset on old laptops causing slow SATA speeds.

Overall the most affordable SSD around for top notch performance, highly recommended,
if you were to have any problems I'd recommend a Samsung second, but personally never had any problems with Intel.

ALSO WORTH NOTING: I bought this SSD in a local shop after amazon lost my package. So far it's been a very slow process retrieving my cash credit,
next time I'll think twice before ordering expensive electronics over amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars won't regret buying Intel drives 8 Sep 2012
By atkoj

I paid around 10 more for this than I could have got the OCZ Agility 3 for, which is essentially the same drive. The reason being, the rock-solid Intel firmware, and the 3-year warranty and Intel customer support.

The thing is seriously fast and comes with a nice package. The data migration software worked well (download from Intel's website).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best upgrade for old laptop 27 July 2012
By Rygor
Verified Purchase
I've decided to get this SSD for my old XPS M1530 and it was good decision.

The Intel Data Migration software is brilliant - creates exact copy of old HDD so you don't loose anything from old drive.
(SSD drive needs to be connected via SATA cable - docking station via USB is not working)

I've decided to put fresh system so after about 30 min I was able to work again on my laptop.
And the responsiveness is amazing - takes only 20-25 sec from boot to launch system and all programs are responsive as soon as desktop appears.

Don't throw away your old PC/Laptop - just put SSD and you will be amazed how fast it could be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and easy 23 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Easy to install drive into pc. Takes a couple of mins

Ive had the Intel 320 series ssd for over a week now. So far very happy.Timed startup at 12 seconds. Shutdown at 3 seconds.(Once i unplug any external hard drives) My PC was only a week old with a 2 TB hard drive. I wanted a dedicated load up drive with only windows 7 and main programs installed. Games and any downloads go straight onto the 2 TB or external drives.

I did not bother with the migration sw method as described by intel. As i have an OEM windows 7 installation loaded with bloatware.So wanted to clean install.
I got an official legal copy of Windows from My Digital life. Free download if you have original licence. Make sure it matches your own version of windows eg 32 bit 64 bit home ultimate etc. Just needed a painless robo call to activate. Follow link from 7 forum site to get iso.

Then follow the procedure from Windows 7 forum, very helpful site and easy to understand guides.
Google windows 7 forum then search "clean-reinstall-factory-oem-windows-7"

Only problem you get is drivers are not all found when you do a clean install, LAN card and video mainly.
You should be able to get video card from their web site as i did for my AMD card.

Heres the best way to get others that might not be found.
Back these folders up to cd or flash drive from your C drive.
32 bit and 64 bit have different folders so grab both.

Paths to follow.


make sure you get the "inf" folder.

Then clean install windows following the guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars the perfect boot disk for an iMac 27 late 2011 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Mounted inside an iMac 27 late 2011. It works just fine and the responsiveness of the system it's now amazing. I would buy a bigger size but same series. Totally worth the money it cost.

It comes with a metal casing that allows you to install it into a PC case if you want and the extra wires that are required. Or it fits into a laptop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 9 Dec 2012
By Martin
Bought along with Windows 7 to upgrade my sons laptop and WOW what a difference it has made. Windows loads so fast and all his program's boot so quickly it really has surprised me. Very easy to install, overall excellent value for money. A liitle tip, don't bother with a massive hard drive, get one of these and a separate back up drive for your pictures, files and videos.
