First of all, Intel SSD is worth the money for its performance. I have used Kingston SSDNow, OCZ Agility 4 and this Intel 320. I liked Kingston and Intel SSD for it's build quality, speed and reliability. Both Kingston and Intel ran smoothly out of box, but OCZ was a world of trouble. Kingston I had for about 2 years now still runs smoothly, but I wanted a bigger capacity so I picked up Intel cause it was on sale for about $150.
Make sure you download and run the system tweaking tools and Google what you need to know about SSD's if you've never owned one. My OS went corrupt after four months but it was my fault for not tweaking it properly. I think a lot of failures probably have to do with poor maintenance and setup on the user's part.
Great drive for OS and games the fast drive allows for operating systems to boot in a matter of seconds and applications open so quick you'll wonder how you ever lived with the slower platter type hard drives that you can hear spin up and whine as it tries to keep up with the user.
Overall a great reliable ssd with enough space for your os, your most used applications aka games + more. As with all ssds, the practical application comes when its combined with a large hdd.
I went through several Corsair SSDs that failed (3 weeks for one SSD and 3 days for a second) and had to deal with their nightmare support. Eventually I received a refund from Corsair and bought two of these Intel SSDs during boxing week.
I bought this to upgrade my laptop and found out it was efficient and worth the time replacing. It boots really fast in less than 3-4 minutes and I am surprised this is worth the money rather than buying hard drives. I would suggest purchasing this.
For a SATA II ssd, this is not bad at all. There is definitely a major difference when I switched from my HDD to SSD. Performance is much faster and snappier. From what I learn, Intel SSD has one of the lowest return rates. 5 Year warranty from the Intel company is awesome. If it wasn't for the company's $70 MIR and some other IR deals, I don't think I would've purchased this. Overall, good quality, and definitely recommended for others.
Major difference if compared with hard discs. Booting only takes less than 8 seconds and takes much less time for file management. Price dropped but still quite pricey. I suggest you to buy one of these as ur system drive. I got mine around 210 and still waiting for $70 mir.
Bought this over OCZ/anything that used Sandforce because of the horror stories even despite the firmware update it got. I didn't want to deal with headaches/RMAs so it was natural to purchase from intel as there were many rave reviews on the web.
