Tim, Poole Consultant

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Halves the Windows cold boot time for my machine, applications load much faster, such as Office, also big powerpoint decks come up quicker. Wish I'd moved from HD to SSD ages ago.
Bad points:
Not with the SSD but with Windows image backup/restore. You have to make sure you've shrunk your HD to smaller than the SSD size. The error message you get when trying to restore is not helpful - suggests other causes which are incorrect, you have to guess the real problem.

Gordan, Camberley IT Professional

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent performance under all load conditions. Most SATA controllers reach saturation points and bottleneck long before this SSD reaches it's limits.
Bad points:
These are bordering on nit picking but here they go anyway:

1) More expensive than a very similar Kingston HyperX SSD (same Sandforce controller, same Intel NAND flash)

2) Unlike the Kingston HyperX, the Intel 520 does not have the Write-Read-Verify fature.
