Rated 4 out of 5 by pljones As good as I'd hoped
First off, I have to say thanks for the help in deciding whether to get this product - top notch. The buying process was slick, too.
I play an electronic drum trigger kit with sampled acoustic drums. Lots of them (~60 kits). It had got to the point where loading up was taking over fifteen minutes and I was starting to count how much time I was losing just... waiting... This was with a very fast Seagate SATA drive.
Unfortunately, I've only got PCIe 2.0 slots, so I do not get the best out of this drive - it can go faster than my motherboard. But it has meant my load time is down to nearer five minutes, which I almost don't notice.
Installation itself was trivial (open case, insert, close case), the driver install and update went without a hitch.
Copying the data across was also smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Krobar Really fast and of usual Intel Quality
Over 2Gbyte/sec and works fine with my X79 board as a boot device once UEFI Enabled and CSM disabled.

Purchased this to use in a VMware vSphere lab using the Lenovo TS140 tower server. Great performance boost over using my NAS and iSCSI.

This drive is fantastic, would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gravissima Does exactly what is says on the box.
I installed the Intel 750 PCIe SSD in a Fujitsu file server that we use to run our small home-based business.
The mechanical side of the installation was quick and effortless, with the card slotting easily into a vacant PCIe slot.
We had to download a driver from the Intel site for the SSD to be recognised by the OS (Windows 2012 Standard), but once installed it worked immediately, so we could set about partitioning and formatting the volumes. Read and write speed was even better than clamed. This has significantly improved speed across the network whilst backups and our Sage accounts system run much more quickly and responsively.
The 750 SSD card would also fit into a low profile machine, (something I may try with our desktops when the prices drop a little), but the card is quite long so make sure you have sufficient space to fit it before buying.

I purchased this item to use for programs & windows 10 to speed up things like start up and it is much faster than my old system

I wish I'd stayed with my Samsung SSD and saved the money

A bit tricky to set up in as much as the BIOS needs to be altered to enable the Intel SSD 750 to boot but then the mobo will not boot from any standard SSD or hard drive. Once the pc has booted however then other disks (SSD and non SSD) are accessible.
Built into a high end pc streaming Photographic scenery real time in a flight simulator - Prepar3d with top end Nvidia graphics card.
Using a standard SSD (Samsung Evo 850 pro) when the aircraft is "Flying" at high speed, the SSD cannot stream the data quickly enough to not blurr.
This problem is eliminate with the Intel 750 when changing the graphics card made no difference at all to the blurring because the SATA 3 buss could not stream the data though fast enough for the Graphics card to process it.
There is however still a small blurr but only when flying at say 32 x normal spend then switching back to normal speed. The scenery still takes half a second to catch up (with an old mechanical disk this took 20 seconds or more and 5 seconds with the Samsung Evo 850 pro)
It would be interesting to see how an even faster Pcie SSD like the Intel Data Center P3608 4TB NVMe PCIe SSD/Solid State Drive would perform but the prohibitive price puts me off buying one to try it out unless Scan want to lend me a sample ! ! ! Come on Scan I haven't got £7K spare for this please lend me a sample,
