Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Firmware

Firmware:
"One warning note is that the first release of these drives had a bad firmware glitch."
_
"However, I would stay away from this drive - the problem has not been fixed by the latest firmware! "
_
"I had heard about the firmware bug that caused the drive to fail in certain situations."
_
"So I quickly installed the firmware update that was supposed to fix the problem (4PC10362)."
_
"It's performed perfectly and it has the same firmware as the other drives that have failed."
_
"That makes me wonder if the firmware error has something to do with Windows specifically."
_
"It's performed perfectly and it has the same firmware as the other drives that have failed."
_
"Hi,I recently purchased this item, it's all fine a good, but you should update the firmware before use."
_
"Thankfully updating the firmware is fairly painless so long as you've got a blank CD-R laying around."

Speed

Speed:
"It is a lightning fast SSD (Solid State Drive) with a SATA II interface with read speeds of up to 270 MB s and write speeds of up to 165 MB s. The MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) is 1,200,000 hours or about 136 years and it has no moving parts or motors to fail."
_
"It's performed perfectly and it has the same firmware as the other drives that have failed."
_
"Not wanting to deal with the hassle of swapping out another dead SSD, I decided to sacrifice a bit of performance in exchange for the reliability of an Intel SSD, with an Intel (rather than SandForce) controller."
_
"- A bit overpriced compared to the competition- Decent speeds but starting to lag behind even those that are in the lower price brackets- Famous Intel reliability ( time will tell )"
_
"Adding an SSD drive is one of the best performance enhancements you can do for any computer."
_
"Very highly rated on almost all review sites and the performance is right up there with the very best drives."
_
"I up graded to the Intel 320 series from a raptor and the speed is amazing."
_
"Upgrading the old 140GB 7200rpm SATA system drive to this 120GB SSD was far easier than I expected - maybe 20 minutes of actual labor - and it works perfectly and is an amazing increase of speed for disk-bound activities like system startup and starting applications."
