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: I've been pretty satisfied with this product. Easy to set up and ok performance. Then it died after about 6 month of usage. I'm using it in a media pc - so no heavy load, just some Windows Media Center TV playback/recording. OCZ replaced the disk within 3 weeks.
Summary: "The SATA II SSD 2.5 Drive comes un-formatted. It is possible to format the drive ... within the Windows environment under MY Computer ..." Sounds easy. But, it doesn't work. I have spent hours searching the net looking for a way to format/get Windows Explorer to recognize the OCZ SSD.
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: 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 purchase this SSD (OCZSSD2-1VXY120G) from Amazon and it has not worked from the time I opened the box. I installed the drive into my laptop (ASUS UL80j) and attempted to run the ASUS restore disks. Although the restore went properly, the drive would not boot the laptop.
Summary: As far as SSDs go, you really can't get any worse than this. Yes, this performs like an SSD, which is mindblowingly better than an HDD. That's where the positives end. Most reviews here are comparing SSD performance to a standard HDD, which really isn't a fair comparison. The drive is slow.
Summary: I anxiously awaited this product's arrival. I unboxed it, plugged it in, and it only showed 29.8gb (of 120gb that it should have shown). I called OCZ and they said "That is a bad controller. Just return it to the retailer". HORRIBLE SERVICE!
