Summary: OCZ are notorious for rushing to market with half-baked control software/firmware. They've had to replace literally hundreds of thousands of faulty SSDs under warranty. This placed them in a difficult financial position and they were unable to raise enough capital to keep going on their own. Toshiba bought their assets, but even a good company like Toshiba cannot undo bad products already out there.
Worked like a Charm for over a year and then failed

Summary: So I bought the 480gb version originally to use for my Black Magic Cinema Camera. I put off buying that camera and then got a DSLR. I put this drive into my computer and it worked well for about 11 months. I ended up buying the camera and started using this drive for the camera. It worked well for the first 3 months and then it was no longer detected by the camera.
Summary: I had read the reviews and heard of problems with these drives, but bought one anyway, hoping to avoid them. I didn't. After about 30 days, the drive stopped responding. Luckily, I just had my OS/programs installed on it, so no valuable data was lost. I replaced it with an Intel drive, and after a year things are just dandy. Buyer beware.
Summary: I used EaseUs todo-backup to transfer my old drives data to this one. I haven't looked back since. went from 5 minute boots to less than a minute. outlook and other database apps load in almost no time (3minutes to 10 seconds). Not having to worry about bumping the computer has made it much more mobile for me. Would buy again.
Summary: This product works well with my Core2 Duo laptop but when i upgrade to i7 it hangs a lot. Particularly on the data transfer and it will just freeze. Upgraded the firmware and it works better. No choice but had to reformat again. So far it has been good after that and crossed my fingers.
Summary: I bought this item to replace my Lenovo X60 hard disk and it did not work. We tried to do a new install and even re ghost it using my old hard disk but still no success. My friend bought it and using it as a back-up hard disk.
