Summary: I shopped around - and on price - this is the best unit - given the performance. This is a heavy gun - and - I have checked all the reviews and the specs. I fully anticipate screaming scores and great benchmarks.
Summary: I bought this unit to replace a drive in my 13" macbook core 2 duo laptop. The drive fit right in place of the original drive. No pre installation configuration was needed. I made a backup of my original drive using an external USB drive and Super Duper free cloning software.
Summary: For people wanting 1TB SSD for their PS3 Slim this is the right SSD. Boot time didn't get better but installing game, loading games, and ect did get improve on read/writer speed. This SSD did fit perfectly inside the PS3 Slim bay if you wanted to know.
Summary: Bought to use with Windows 7 Pro. System works great and is quiet. I use this drive with a Gigabyte z68 m/b and do fine. It is much faster than a conventional HD. It's very cool running. Got this drive in Sept off a bid site, and so far it's working well. Octane done did it.
Summary: This drive replaced the ailing, slow 5400 rpm hard drive that originally came with my mid-2009 Macbook Pro model. Prior to using it on my machine I used an external SATA enclosure to mount it on the system and format it for OS X using Disk Utility.
Summary: What can I say. This drive is the fastest I've ever used. I have mechanical drives and hydrid drives. Neither can come close to the performance of this Octane unit. For those of you that live by your WEI score, this unit posted a 7.9! Windows boots much quicker now than before.
Summary: I bought 2 of these drives for my desktop computer, these were my first SSD's and I was afraid of how it was gonna turn out. Before this I used 3 WD 2tb black hard drives in RAID 0 and im going to continue using those and these at the same time.
Summary: Compared to my previous SSD (Vertex2) the octane shows very "robust" performance - no matter which type of data is written, performance stays the same. This can be a big plus when using encryption, as it basically kills the performance of SandForce based SSDs.
Summary: My old SSD scored a 7.9 on the Windows Experience Index. This one scored a 7.7 on the same machine. Not as high as I was hoping but let’s be honest, that’s close enough! This drive runs great and boot-up times are about 27 to 30 seconds.
