I'm pretty sure that the firmware for the Intel drive isn't the old sluggish one, but could anyone confirm this? The drive reference is on the website but here it is for convenience: SSDSA2MH080G2C1.

Anyway, what do you guys think of this? Is it a reliable build? I tried picking quality components. Opinions and suggestions are welcome.
