I had the same problem of Intel 520 120GB on my ThinkPad W510. After the fresh installation of Win7 64 bit at the ACHI mode, theBSOD occurs frequently.
However, if I place this SSD to the 2nd HD bay on the same machine, as a data drive (not the boot drive), it can run smoothly.
How can I use the Intel 520 120GB as the primary boot drive?
Hi, I sent back the Intel SSD 520 as a DOA and I will order an Seagate Momentus XT 750GB, I have two unit of the old version (500GB) and it work fine. This drive have 8GB of NAND Flash and the drive use it as an "cache" to speed up the access time and boot time.
Certainly, this isn’t as fast compare to an SSD drive but something fast need to work as well After some reading, Sandforce already have BSOD caused by a momentary “drop” connection… this look like an experimental product depending of the perspective. For sure, this is the future of I/O for computer but for now, this is not stable OR you have to have the right combination
