Intel 530 Series 120GB £60.56 @ Amazon

Intel 530 Series (120GB) Internal Solid State Drive 2.5 inch 7mm SATA 6gb/s

Lowest price this has ever been according to camel. From what I understand these have excellent reliability. Feel free to correct me as I'm not a PC component wiz-kid!

I have the 525 msata Intel ssd which is similar except it uses 25nm instead of the newer, cheaper 20nm in this. Maybe not the fastest drive available now but it is a decent performer. Sand force based.

Had my ocz 3 years now no failure in sight, this is half the capacity for same money. Would agree old designs are unreliable not sure that is still the case

Hmmmmmmmmm, a little expensive. I don't think it is a good price.

Is it really worth the extra £15 to £20 over the other 120/128gb ssds posted here recently?
Say the Sandisk Ultra Plus which was £46

Having just had to spend £10 returning a failed 13 month old Sandisk SSD to Czech Republic (only option under their 3 year warranty) I wouldn't choose one of their SSD's again. The oldest SSD in our work collection is an Intel model and it has never skipped a beat. The only other model we have had issue with was the OCZ Petrol 64gb's that came in a set of ten PC's we rolled out. Everyone of them had to be replaced, no issue at all with the Crucial replacements.

Some early SSDs had problems and you had to choose carefully. These problems seem to have been overcome and the prices are tumbling. With 256 GB SSDs now available at around £80 it might be worth considering how much more useful the larger drive would be.

Not sure I'd want a Sandforce controlled drive even from Intel. I'd rather go with the 840 Pro.
#11
Not bad but twice the capacity can be had for the 70ish mark.

Also note if this is first SSD purchase, would rather wait for the new Samsung 845/850's whose release is imminent, they do make rather good SSD's.

I bought ocz vertex 2 & 3 when they 1st came out & still going strong.

They sold a damn site more drives than the overpriced Intel.

I still have my trusty Crucial M4 from around 2 years ago. Poor thing runs every day for around 7-15 hours.

All my V2's failed within a month. They still haven't fixed the sleep bug.

OCZ's SSD failure rate is up to 10x that of Intel's, even on Marvell drives. It'll be interesting to see if Toshiba can turn that around.

I doubt someone would be buying a S845 as their first SSD purchase, but mx100 240gb for very little more £15-£20. Some businesses will only buy Intel or other "approved" parts, of course.

Same - had to send my 6 month old Sandisk SSD to Czech and had to wait over 2 weeks for a replacement to be sent back. Wouldn't have minded much except it was fitted to my wife's laptop which she barely uses (about once a month) so really disappointed. I have the Samsung 128GB EVO in mine and it doesn't miss a beat - from off to Win 7 in 10 seconds ...

Yep I believe intel was one of the first manufacturer of SSD so they have pretty good experience with them.

Ironically, Sandisk was making SSDs before Intel.
