Summary: Trying to figure out how to contact OCZ about getting it replaced, or at least checked out to see if it is totally dead.
Pros: Easy to install, fast.
Cons: Seemed to start having issues after about 6 months of use. Could be laptop related, or SSD releated, uncertain. Seemed like anytime I would pack it up and put in my backpack I would have to unseat and reseat it multiple times before the bios would see it again, and then finally after a year it sh...
Summary: I have bought the SanDisk drives since the first one failed on me. The second one has held up and worked well but I have never had a SanDisk equivalent fail so I feel more comfortable with those.
Summary: I picked this up with the intention of using it as my main drive for the operating system. So far with solid state drives I have not had any luck getting them to drive the operating system. After installing the operating system on this drive I would experience errors.
Summary: Background: I purchased a 120GB OCZ Vertex 2 a while back for my laptop (SATA II). Said Vertex 2 averaged about 50MB/sec random reads (used Defraggler to benchmark the drive about 10 times to get my average).
Pros: Decent read speeds (avg. 30MB/sec), good storage size for the price I paid back when I bought it.
Cons: Slower than an older OCZ Vertex 2 drive. A LOT slower.
Summary: I will be buying another SSD, but probably not this one.
Pros: I guess it working would be a pro. Once my computer is started i guess it works like it should.
Cons: Don't see a big difference compared to my 7200 RPM Seagate HDD which this drive replaced. Takes about 23-27 seconds to load windows 7, even with the GUI start up graphics disabled, which is comparable to drives slower than 7200. Should be much faster as I have an 8 Core OC'd to 4.6 ghz with 8 Gig...
Summary: This drive is not compatible with SATA II MacBook Pros (MBP). Mine is a model 5,3. Apparently the drive will not scale down to SATA II when using the Nvidia chip set. My Mac could not see the drive when installed internally, but could in an external USB housing.
