I had Corsairs but it was constantly freezing up and crashing. When it was working it was fast. But Intel here have a Rock solid product, is fast and solid performance. Not one issue since I installed it a few months ago. Well happy.. You will be too.

If your looking for a stable SSD which can be used to run windows then this is what you want, being 120GB means you also have room for a few essential programs too!

Windows will load ultra fast with this drive and any games or software like Photoshop you put on it will also load ultra too!
