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.

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.
Drivestore
Drivers
inf

Paths to follow.

C:windows\system32\drivestore
C:windows\system32\drivers
C:windows\sysWOW64\drivestore
C:windows\sysWOW64\drivers
C:\windows\inf

make sure you get the "inf" folder.

Then clean install windows following the guide.

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.

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).

I purchased this product to upgrade a painfully slow HP Laptop a DV2630ea (part of the DV2500 range).

This laptop uses a Phoenix BIOS and the last version available was released in Dec 2008.

The Phoenix BIOS in this laptop cannot see this Hard Drive.

I had to clone the old Hard Drive onto this Intel SSD 330 to get Windows onto it, and now have to put up with Windows Repair, Hibernate, and Sleep not working.

Other than this major annoyance the drive is quite fast and this upgrade has made the laptop much more responsive, not to mention the nice quick start up.

So be careful when using this device as part of an upgrade and not a new system as it could be an expensive paperweight if you don't know what your doing.

got this as my HDD was on it's last legs. was at the cross roads of replace it with another HDD or go with a SSD. yes the SSD cost more but the time saved by waiting for your computer to load from the HDD is noticeable when you swap in a SSD. The mounting kit is awesome, everything you need to go is inside the box. no more hunting down the brackets or screws. this extends the battery life as it seems to be more efficient. i can see why it's used in ultrabook laptops. next time i get another laptop and there is no SSD already, i am gonna just replace it right away. lessons learned, once you tried a system with a SSD you will not go back to a HDD.
