It's a speedy little SSD and performs very well.
Although not the fastest by specs, it rates well on most reviews and boasts some pretty impressive numbers when stacked up against some other SSDs with higher specs. AnandTech SSD Bench
Intel's I/O rates are, or probably were, better that most and this gives them an edge.
