There have been a couple users with issues but they really are rare.

I felt confident enough in intel to go with a 520.

I recently bought an Intel 520 SSD, the 120GB model. I will say that the speed increase is amazing but I am having BSOD issues and can't figure out why. My BSOD issue only occurs when I have multiple apps/games running. For example; if I leave my bit torrent client running overnight I have no issues. If, however, I have my bit torrent client running while playing a game or watching an HD movie, I will eventually have a BSOD.

I used the newest version of DPS to make sure everything is as up to date as possible and can't figure out why. I did not have this issue on my old WD 120GB HDD.
