Pros: Works great while it works.
Cons: Ordered these on Nov 22. First one died yesterday(Dec 2), submitted to OCZ for RMA, was asked for receipt, but you cannot attach it via their exdesk page and you cannot email it as the email address they are using does not exist. Today(12/3) the 2nd SSD died. So far I am not impressed with both OCZs product or their technical support/RMA departments as they seem rather slow.
Cons: This is my experience: I have purchased 2 - OCZ refurbished SSD's in the past 8 months and both have died. I would be extremely cautious purchasing their refurbished products as it appears to me they have NOT resolved the problem(s) that caused the failures in the first place. In other words, if one of their devices fails and OCZ takes it back - "refurbishes" it - and then puts it back into the marketplace for sale - and it dies again - they very likely did NOT unders...
Pros: Very Fast. Was very easy to recommend to fellow gamers and pc builders...until....
Cons: 2 out of the 3 I bought died. I would try to RMA them but since I had such an awesome experience trying to get my mail in rebates, that I gave up on after several weeks of emailing, I decided to sell all remaining working hard drives and RAM (on an auction site that I seem to be not allowed to name) that I had from OCZ and go with a different company.
Summary: I bought the OCZ AGT 4 128G and had loads of trouble getting it to work (half a day) as it would only randomly be found i the BIOS. I finally got it running but after copying some files to the drive it disappeared from the BIOS and in windows - again... I returned it and got a Samsung SSD 840 Series instead - The Samsung worked right from the start took me 2 minutes to install and I have no not had a single problem with it, it's fast too.
