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: 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.
Summary: The SSD drive is very fast and extremely large. It works great in the fast quad core workstation. It was delivered on time and exceeds my expectation. I am using it in an ICY_DOC MB882SP-1S-2B drive converter to 3.5 inch and that works great also.

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: 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: Installed into Pentium D Vista box to replace the 80GB Seagate system drive. Migration was quick and without any issues: 1. Clonezilla of 80GB HDD onto SSD 2. Gparted to expand system partition by 20GB 3. Disconnect HDD connect SSD 4.
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: 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: I will never go back to an hdd. this is the best item i have ever bought for my computer.
Pros: extremely fast for a great price. i have an x58 setup and Windows 7 starts up in 14 seconds. dont hesitate if you have the money. indilinx is a great alternitive to the sand-force controller for ssds. competition is always better for the consumer.
Cons: no cons for the device its self just had to get a sata 3 so i had to get a pcie sata 3 controller.
Summary: This product rocks so far! Prices have been coming down, and I wanted an SSD that had the same capacity as my internal hard drive. I have a 15-inch Macintosh unibody laptop (mid 2010) running OS X 10.7 "Lion" with a 500G internal hard drive.
