5 out of 5 eggsFirst time builder , great ssd

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: I've never built a pc for myself until now and have only had very small experience with building a pc.


this ssd slid right inside my case's bay(corsair spec 03) , hooked it up , installed windows and a few programs on it and done. I've timed windows 8.1 and started up within 5-8 seconds. Extremely fast , was a great price when I bought it(65$ IIRC).

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDont Buy Cant Return

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: It works ok on my Desktop pc.

Cons: I bought 2 of these for a set of Toshiba Laptops D855-S5209. When I install windows updates on a clean boot all the usb drives have driver error. I have no trouble with any other hard drive and I tried several.

Other Thoughts: I would return this incompatible product if I could. Newegg is replace only. I gave it a 1 because it did work correctly in my desktop. To bad that's not what it was for. Don't get stuck with this item like I did.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD,? software

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: Since the install period the SSD has been running great No problems. Fast start, restart from sleep and overall an increase response during normal operation. Plenty of space for Windows 8.1 and many other programs, including running Windows 10 Trial in Virtual Box.

Cons: Only con is with included software. Owners of Acronis 2013 & 2014 backup programs must uninstall this program before using the Intel Migration software. Also, the migration software only works if your old drive has one partition. My solution was to reinstall Acronis True Image and use this to transfer my C partition to the SSD. The instructions accompanying the SSD need updating.

5 out of 5 eggsCrazy Fast

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: Stupid Fast

Cheap ( $0.50 per GB)

Cons: I got nothin...

Other Thoughts: Been Using SSDs since Xp days. I Try to follow the Tech and upgrade every time a bottleneck is removed. Either it be Motherboard bandwidth or SSD controllers etc.

This is by far the fastest I've used and the difference in speed since my last SSD (525 Series Lincoln Crest SSDMCEAC120B301) is VERY noticeable in real world use.

With all my regular Programs installed and start up services (temp monitors, etc) I have about 80GB free on Windows764bit install and the OS loads from a cold boot before the windows animation can finish. This is with ZERO tweaking or power user trickery.

I can copy Linux ISO from my spindle drive to This SSD in 2-3 seconds... Photoshop and other I/O hungry programs open in less than 4 seconds.

Im sure the newer 700 series from Intel are nice but under this OS and programs I use I cant really see any major benefit for the extra $ per GB. Not to mention with a 5yr warranty I cant see this SSD wearing out before I would really need more space or speed for my OS drive.

5 out of 5 eggsVery fast, works Great

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: Fast, easy to install

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I installed this as the main OS drive on my home theater PC running Ubuntu 14.04. It boots up extremely quickly. It takes about 3 seconds to boot after POST. I am very happy with the price and performance. i hope it lasts a long time, that is my only concern.

5 out of 5 eggsLove them!

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: Inexpensive, fast, silent, and nothing special required for install. Made both laptops so much faster that I was truly amazed!

Cons: Being thinner than the drives they replaced, took a little creative effort to get the SATA ports to line up properly in the one laptop that had a lengthwise insertion method. The other laptop had more of a "Drop-in" style and was no trouble at all. Once inserted though the mounting screws lined up fine and all was well.

Other Thoughts: SSDs do have a rewrite limit, although for the average user the drive will likely outlast the laptop. That being said, DISABLE AUTOMATIC DEFRAG IN WIN7 AND ABOVE! Defragmentation offers no benefit once an SSD is installed since seek time is independent of data location, and allowing defrag to run will just shorten the lifetime of the drive.

4 out of 5 eggsIntel 530 Series SSD

This review is from: Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW120A4K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Retail

Pros: Works as advertised!

Cons: The "cloning" software was lacking (see "other thoughts" below...

Other Thoughts: This is my first SSD. I was pleasantly surprises to find the mounting bracket, screws, and SATA cable in the box (I therefore returned the bracket I had bought at **A RETAIL STORE WHICH NEWEGG WON'T ALLOW ME TO NAME*** Think FRIED chicken! Get it?!!!). This thing is tiny and fast, plus 120GB is plenty of space for Windows 7.
The cloning software provided by Intel proved to be useless. I had Windows 7 installed in a 100GB partition of a 1TB Western Digital hard drive. The "cloning" software is a very crude program which was unable to discern the 100GB partition from the 1TB hard drive; it was thus unable to clone said Windows partition to the new 120GB SSD. I therefore had no choice but to re-install Windows 7 in the new SSD drive. (This is the reason for 4 out of 5 stars)
