Reliable drive


I use this drive in a rack mount computer that functions as my keyboard and sample device for a local band. It gets banged around and functions in poorly ventilated areas, travels in cold conditions, etc. I have experienced no problems with this device

a bit faster than my SATA drives

massive failure rate, terrible tech support. 2nd drive to be replaced in 7 months. Took OCZ 7 days to process my defective return; 2 weeks total turnaround. their advance replacement program (you will have to ask - they won't offer) goes like this: buy...

Nice, quick


I was used to spinning hard drives and the lack of noise was nice, forth build from Newegg and I love it. Added a couple of older drives after from old system and still the boot up in windows is still @45 sec. Pay more for a larger drive and use older...

Fast, and used in new build for main operating system

Price, not big enough

Good Drive, Bad Accessory


Luckily, I had ordered a Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDBRKT2535 at the same time as this drive, in anticipation of another drive I would be purchasing. This bracket worked beautifully - I would recommend buying it instead of depending on the stock OCZ bracket.

The drive itself performs as I'd expected. Very fast installations and boot time. To be fair, though, this is the first SSD I've gotten to work with directly

The OCZ 3.5" to 2.5" drive adapter bracket that came with the drive was a huge disappointment. I've tried the bracket in 3 cases (NZXT Phantom, Sunbeam Transformer, and Rosewill ARMOR), and, in every instance, the holes on the sides of the OCZ bracket...

Update: The whole process from the first crash to a working replacement from OCZ was about 21 days. Breaking the timeline down: 5 days attempting to trouble-shoot the drive. 4 weekend days. 3 days waiting for the RMA number. 8 days from mailing the old...

OCZ Tech support was great. I actually feel bad for them having to deal with the fallout from this lemon of an SSD. Been there, done that

Not sure if I can trust this drive for more than 6 months. I am thinking there will be a repeat performance this coming July

False advertising (as most already know). Speed is less than like 100MB/s read..Docked an egg ; I had much difficulty getting this drive to work in AHCI but after much hassle I got the win7 to work on this and it's been smooth sailing ever since

Good performance, unreliable and terrible support


Never buying an OCZ again! I can deal with product failures but support is terrible and take a long time to respond.

Good performance

Two drives died within 3 months on two different systems ; Terrible customer support. RMA took three weeks both times. Customer support's explanation was that the drive can't handle suspend mode

My SSD is faster than your HD


I wish I would of gotten a bigger one.

This was my first SSD. It works great and I am yet to have a problem with it

Only con I can think of is the size, but that is no fault of the manufacturer
