Summary: I purchased 2 of these from Newegg that came sealed in the plastic factory packaging. One worked OK but the second one was completely dead! Newegg claims they don't take returns so Buyer Beware! They did exchange it for another one though, problem is the replacement only lasted 1 day!
Summary: Great SSD, works flawlessly with MacBook, MacBook Pros, and Mac Pros. Got advertised read/write speeds when benching the drive. Bummer that OS X doesn't support native TRIM functions, but there are ways around this with various utilities.
Summary: Purchased two of these guys. Ran in a Raid 0 for just over a year getting the performance I was expecting. Then one failed. Cannot be detected at POST. It just hangs. Had to request an RMA. I have gone thru 2 flash iterations. They arrived at 1.4 and I went to 1.5 and then to 1.6 a while later.
Summary: 1. I have had very good experience with the OCZ SSD products in the past 2. I purchased this product and everything was fine for about a month, then all the sudden I was not able to access the data on the drive. I connected the drive to 2 different SATA2 port, and neither port recognized the drive.
Summary: I had a glimpse of the raw speed this SSD offers for less than 10 minutes, until my Alienware M11x just froze after I was done Installing Windows 7. After I turned it off and on, I realized this expensive piece of hardware was dead.
Summary: I know that there are a lot of folks who have had problems with the OCZ sandforce drives. Luckily I have not been one of them. I have had this drive for over a year and it still performs wonderfully for me. Cost/Performance on this drive is a deal.
Summary: These drives and OCZ's support are PLAGUED with issues. They have HORRIBLE warranty requirements that lock you into only using their forums in order to get a replacement. Then when you finally do submit a request for a refund they make up all kinds of crap that you where SUPPOSED to fill out.
Summary: I purchased this drive for my Dell Precision M4400. It boots Windows 7 in about 15 seconds. The drive rates a 7.3 on the windows experience index. Works fantastic. I wouldn't pay what Amazon is asking, I bought mine for $400.
Summary: Highly recommended for this 128 GB SSD, it gives a Window Experience index of 6.9 and not all brands of SSD are created the same. I have another SSD 64GB Kingston based model which gives a Window Experience index of 6.7
Summary: I rarely write reviews of items that I purchase, but this OCZ SSD deserves some praise. I orginally purchased a Muskin Callisto Deluxe SSD, but returned it to Amazon because it was defective. Not wanting to take a chance on another Muskin I ordered the OCZ unit. I'm glad I did.
