Horrible reliability


The only non-1-star review here is probably from a person who didn't have this drive fail yet....

Fast and large when it works

Terrible reliability. This is the 3rd Colossus that I own. Before this drive I had 2 500GB drives in RAID config. Very often one of the drives would fail (no detection by BIOS) or stutter. Back then I blamed it on RAID and sold these drives to get 1TB...

This hard drive saved my marriage, cured my diabetes, and rose one of my cats from the dead

Didn't make me omniscient. I'm very upset with that, I thought I would become G.od after I bought this

used this to replace my broken SSD


Planning of moving my conscience to this awesome thing, Ya know to be sorta Immortal Need like 500 of these in Raid 5 setup and I'll be set for the next Milena.

Installed it into my computer whom I call Madobe Nanami(Mai Waifu). After her original SSD (Kingston 64gb ssd now v100) failed badly this morning, after a serious session. Well to me it was serious ; Makes toast unlike the other ssd that didn't allow...

Had to do a clean install, Madobe Forgot about me and tried to kill me before I told her @ the last moment that I'm her master ; Apparently the SSD made Madobe Sentient... She's refusing to do anything

Wow! Cheap! Fast! Amazing!


I really love this product! Instead of buying new CPU or new computer, keep your old computer and just buy this drive instead! Much much easier to carry home and so light you can simply toss it to your back seat! My friend asked me if I regret that I...

This is by far the fastest and cheapest drive I've ever owned! I bought 3 of these for the 3 computers my sons and daughter use.. Microsoft Paints loads so much faster now on the 486 and Pentium II machines.. My kids can finish their homeworks much...

Had to look everywhere to find the adopter to mount this drive to my 486 and Pentium II machines ; The drive is cheap for what it does.. but my kids and I had to skip a meal for 6 months and we had to sell my 4th child and my Rolexes in order to buy 3...

Sell your car and buy this NAOW!


This thing is so fast it literally reads my thought's! As we speak I am just staring at the keyboard and am about to type a word out, but when I look up it's already on the screen!

This thing is so fast it literally reads my thoughts! As we speak I am just staring at the keyboard and am about to type a word out, but when I look up it's already on the screen. So reasonably priced. I got my tax return and sold my car and have never...

Woke up one night and it was breathing heavily over my bed. I pretended to be asleep. Tried putting a lock on my case but it still got out. Not sure what to do

A++ Hard Drive, will buy again!!1


Update: got fired due to being late to work, selling all 56 I bought at half off. Hit me up.

I'm an artist, that much should be obvious by the amount I've spent on about 56 of these bad boys. What can I say, I'm filthy rich. Anyways, these things basically pay for themselves. Microsoft Paint opens about two and a half times faster than it used...

The amount of good stuff I had to type about this amazing deal made me late to work, so -1 egg. Then again, though, if I didn't have that much good stuff to type about it, then it would mean something was wrong with this product and I'd likely have...

Bought it to replace my triple raid 3tb raid array, so glad I did it!

My word documents open on average .5 seconds faster! Just what I needed! Thanks OCZ ; Windows 98 runs like a dream now

I almost wish it was more expensive, so cheap it almost seems as if they might have put poor parts in it

Horrible Performance.


Consider yourself warned. Do yourself a favor and buy an SSD that does not have internal RAID-0 from another manufacturer so that you can get TRIM working from within Windows 7.


This drive is absolutley the WORST performing drive I have ever owned after a little over 6 months of use. Even with letting it idle every once in a while for the GC to take over, the performance of this drive is so bad I can't even install anything...

Good for powerball winners!


If you are like me, (won the lottery in the last few months) then you will no doubt be buying a good dozen of these. By then your money will be running out and you end up eating out of dumpsters. But it's worth it, trust me.

I was able to set one of these on my PC case, and it's life energy sped up my other PC components drastically

With this in my PC, I think it is beginning to evolve intelligence. It starts up by itself in the middle of the night and I here strange noises from over the PC speakers. Spread the word, the robot uprising is nigh at hand, due to these diabolically...

Extremely Fast and totally Inexpensive!


If you're looking for a large, yet fast, inexpensive drive than this it!!

Everything! This thing is faster than my Turbo-charged KIA RIO ; To really test the speed I set some of my most intense and largest programs to load up at start including Sony Vegas and Photoshop with ALL profiles loaded. I also prompted iTunes and...

It cooked me breakfast one time.. I asked for my eggs to be over easy.. it made them scrambled.. - 1 Egg
