Review OCZ Nocti mSata SSD 120 GB


Fast Mite. New notebook models increasingly often offer an mSata-interface. Thus, the usual internal mass memory can be enlarged or even replaced. We checked, whether the 120 GB Nocti from OCZ is able to outperform conventional hard drives. ... read...

How trouble-free the installation is accomplished in a compatible laptop and how big a capacity such small card can provide

In service for a year, works flawlessly


I put this into service about a year ago as the boot drive for a server, and it has Just Worked. No data errors whatsoever. The server boot time decreased from about 45 seconds to about 10 seconds, under Debian Linux.

Flawless reliability, fast performance, easy installation

Higher unit cost per byte than magnetic media

Excellent Upgrade for Acer W500


Got this to replace the standard SanDisk 32 GB SSD in an Acer W500. After opening the unit (take it slow), the SSD snapped right in the place of the old one. Cloned the drive before replacing. Windows started right up. Only had to expand the volume and...

Easy to clone. Works perfectly with Acer W500 tablet computer. Increased Windows Experience score from 5.9 to 7.6

Great upgrade for ASUS EP121 tablet


Quick and responsive. Works as well as its specs claim. Has made the EP121 tablet a useful laptop replacement with full Win8 install in 8 minutes. Recommended

None - other than its recent price drop - now much less than I paid

I sent one back to OCZ thinking it was defective and when the new one arrived it still did not work with my desktop i remembered I had a laptop sata to usb adaptor and pluged it in and my desktop could now see the drive but only at usb 2.0 speed. DONT...

This SSD is fast for a SATA II device in my 2 year old laptop ; it goes from power off state to desktop in 15 seconds that includes post time as well

This SSD will not work in my desktop's mSATA slot or with the Sata II or III connetions on my motherboard using a StarTech SAT2MSAT25 mSata to 2.5" drive adaptor. the problem is the power structure of this SSD, in a Laptop or Sata to USB adaptor it...

Hang in ThinkPad W530


Reasonable price ; Decent performance when it doesn't hang

I restored the factory image onto the OCZ Nocti mSATA drive, and it booted successfully. However, once in a while, it hang and the hard drive LED stays on. When this happens, there's not much I get do except hard-reboot ; I updated all the drivers from...

Excellent. Quick. No problems.


Make sure to adjust your paging file size and disable hypernation feature. Let's say you have 16 gigs of RAM, that's 32 gb of wasted disk space on paging file and hypernation file.,

I was skeptical due to some of the negative reviews on this. But no problems whatsoever. Plugged it into my W520 under keyboard, installed Windows 7. Adjusted paging file size to 1024 mb, and disabled hypernation feature, and it's fast

none so far

OCZ Nocti for Pres !!!


All in all, I'm happier than a clam. I got my product in about a day with no extra shipping costs on a 3 day deal, no BSOD's, no hiccup's of any sort it just wants to go go go !! I do wish there were more mSATA drives that are SATAIII but this was...

Everything. Windows install just finds it w/out upgrade of BIOS or firmware, fresh install of 7 64-bit. Boot times are under 10 sec, programs load ultra fast, definately compliments the fast hardware already in my laptop

Not that I would take an egg away for anything really. This little chip could punch me in the teeth and I'd still give it 5 eggs. Only problem I found is that it did NOT come with a mounting screw. I had to take the smallest allen wrench I had and...
