I'd definitely rate it as one of the most reliable.

Meh, looks like unspectacular. The 5 year warranty is always nice but Intel's pricing is hard to justify when Samsung's drives are just as reliable while being faster and cheaper at the same time. Plus, Samsung is doing awesome stuff on the software side like RAPID mode. Here's my 250GB 840 EVO with RAPID mode on:

Intel used to be on top of SSDs when they were making their own controllers, but since they started using Sandforce controllers, they've been pretty uninteresting. Reliable, sure, but uninteresting.
