Review Date: 02/12/12
Cons: way too expensive, random read/write are slow as hell compare to other SSDs.. come on intel

Pros: stable, decent speed, especially the write speed.
intel's SSD needs to step it up. or else after releasing that trim raid0 iRST they will be destroyed by vertex3MaxIops

Review Date: 01/12/12
Cons: -Not the fastest SSD-Requires SATA 3 ready MoBo for maximum performance (not a con, just a heads up)-Expensive $/gb ratio compared to other offerings, especially when you consider that it is not using Intel's own controller -To perform a secure erase through Intel Tool Box requires a second computer running in IDE mode, otherwise the drive will stay locked up if you use AHCI mode even after power-cycling the drive... an extra hoop one has to jump through if one wants to stay safe by using Intel's own secure erase function rather than a third party software

Pros: -Fast enough for the average person, and of course, stable; can fully utilize SATA 2 speed-Intel SSD Quality: lowest in the industry-Have yet to found any reports of these drives bricking or having any serious issues
An expensive SSD but probably the most reliable drive out there at this moment. But if you're not willing to spend this much, a much lower priced Sandforce offering may do a much better if you are lucky enough to not run into any problems.
