What customers say about "Features"
Intel 530 240GB Solid State Drive
  • The software available from the Intel website made it easy to replace my boot hard drive with the SSD.
  • The SSD was simple to install and works incredibly well.
  • This made my mid 2012 Macbook Pro boot in about 10 seconds. Software runs fast and smooth.
  • Installation was exactly the same as a normal hard drive so it's a joy to install.
  • The case feels like its made of plastic and feels very fragile to the touch, again unlike other Intel SSD's I own.
Intel 730 240GB 2.5 inch SATA Solid State Drive
  • Bought it as I need a separate drive for my Virtual Machines. Runs like a charm.
  • Working perfectly on my macbook pro, so far so good.
  • No more loud nailing from a HDD. The computer is now whisper-quiet.
  • Installation of Windows ran absolutely smoothly. Highly recommended.
  • It fit perfectly and I downloaded the drive software from Intel.com and not even 10-15min later I was playing games.
