Works okay, until it doesn't
25 March 2014
Summary: I bought this in September of 2012, and it has been working well up until about a month ago. Since then, I've had to rebuild my PC 4 times and finally confirmed it is the SSD. Their warranty process is also asinine. Needing the serial number makes sense, but needing a part number and not having this show up in your utility is a PITA. At this point though, don't even think of buying one, Get a newer model Samsung that is a better deal and faster...and works.
Summary: As of right now I cannot give this a good review. I have had it 10 months and it failed. Cannot recover my data. Looking back it looks like it was a bad SSD from the start but had not totally failed yet. So I experienced frustrating problems that was blamed many places with hours and hours of tech support when it was just my SSD from the start. I am starting the warranty process now and I will update once I am done.
Summary: I bought this refurbished(I guess its always a chance). I worked at first with very small increase to an old PC. I pulled it out and put it in an i3 pc and it was problem matic. Before the first install I updated the firmware as should be done however after being sent back the first time you might thing the company would do checks like that (QC?) I had it up and working until I did that final windows update then the drive crashed.
Pros: price @ first
Cons: not great speeds, refurbished, feeling like I should've paid a few more dollars towards a better drive and brand.
Summary: I got one of these earlier this year to play around with on a CustoMac I built a couple of years back. I got a $40 rebate so you can imagine how happy I was with the final price. It worked for about 4 months then started freezing up on me with the disk activity LED lit up for hours. Soon my system stopped recognizing the drive entirely.
Summary: I installed this drive into my Macbook Pro, and used it since November. The drive performance started to slow as I placed more video content on the drive. Then the drive completely failed stalling at the first screen with the apple logo or sometime stuck on a blue screen. I sent it back and they immediately replaced the drive with a new one. This time I partitioned the drive into 2 sectors, A. 200 gig and B.
Everything i play on it now crashes after 10 minutes

Summary: This is the 2nd one I have had, the first one was DOA
Cons: I have had this for 2-3 months and now after about 10 - 15 minutes of accessing a game on it the game simply crashes for no reason. Just stops, gives me an error stating it could not run the program for no reason.
Cons: SLOWER THAN MY RAPTOR... This is the fifth SSD I've used and it's the slowest BY FAR! It's Win7 rating is a wopping 0.8 higher than a standard 7200 rpm HDD. With AHCI enabled and running enhanced SATA 3, its AS SSD rating is all of 701. Takes over 20 seconds to load Win7 and that's with a 4.2 Ghz 8-core and 2400 DDR3... Yet again the drive is the slowest thing on my computer... and I used to like OCZ
Summary: Unit doesn't work in a cheap bus-powered (two port cable) USB enclosure, even tho the enclosure works fine with several other hard disks and a brick powered FW enclosure. OCZ now offers a Mac compatible firmware upgrade download that works. OCZ generously covered the RMA shipping. OCZ support was mildly dismissive of original complaint when their tests indicated no problem.
Pros: Excellent price / capacity / performance.
Cons: Pain in the a... Unit worked long enough to clone a 380G existing tried-and-true 2010 15" Macbook Pro 10.7 system using an external FW800 enclosure. Booted from ext, then installed in Mac and rebooted. System immediately unstable with volume corruption, volume unrepairable. Updated firmware to 1.5 and Secure Erase--a pain cause no Mac tools from OCZ, and requires AHCI-capable SATA on PC to update firmware. No joy after update. Completely unstable. RMA with OCZ. They r...
