Not so much. Intel tried to get a premium price for the 520 series but had to abandon that pretty quickly. IMHO there are several oem's at least as good as Intel now if not more reliable. Plextor and sammy being a couple of them.
Personally, I would say get the next best thing, an Intel, if you can't find a sammy or Plex drive.

Intel has a custom sandforce controller/firmware on the 520 series drive.

No problems with mine after a few months but lets see maybe a year from now where i am at.

Enjoy your SSD sir.
