WARNING: This is an Indilinx SSD and will NOT Work with any Macbooks Pre mid-2008 with Bootcamp

Snow-Okami, Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: This is a warning rather than a review as most of my reviews are. I usually don't review things unless I have come across and issue or discovered something. This hard drive unless factory updated (which I doubt) will NOT work with any pre mid-2008 Macbooks when it comes to Bootcamp. Trying to boot any Windows Media, whether it is a CD or HD partition will not boot. It will hang on a grey screen indefinitely and never boot.

apparantly great drive can't install

Stephen M. Dodd, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the OCZ 6 gig for my Acer Aspire 6930. But now I find I need an adapter for the pins and can't find that anywhere. Acer offers to sell me a phone card for $60 to tell me that they disapprove of my changing the drive. Huge problem. Any suggestions.

SSD Tryouts

D. Getz, Amazon
22 September 2009
  • Summary: I got this after reading some informative anandtech articles about SSDs. This drive from OCZ was a great price (under 100 with rebates) and big enough for installing windows and all my productivity programs. I wanted to see what all the hype is about without risking a big investment and since I use several other large normal drives in the same system for storage, a small disk size for just the system was no big deal.

Fast, but set-up can be difficult, I ended up disabiling TRIM and flashing to 1.41 to implement GC

Micahel Thomas, Amazon
21 September 2009
  • Summary: This is indeed a *very* fast drive, however you need to be aware that set up can be a bear, and that tech support is uneven - for example the first time I called I was told the drive MUST be jumperd to upgrade the firmware when using the latest version of the flashing software, the second time I was told it MUST NOT (support was correct the second time).

Fast and (eventually) reliable

David Maw, Amazon
21 September 2009
  • Summary: The first one died after 2 weeks, a prompt replacement has been working fine in my Dell D620 laptop running Vista for over a month now. I used the free edition of an excellent product called "Macrium Reflect" to back up my old drive and image the new one.

Great product once you flash it's firmware

Steve Woods, Amazon
21 September 2009
  • Summary: PLEASE NOTE: FLASH THIS DRIVE'S FIRMWARE BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING WITH IT! Regarding an earlier post, I had difficulty upgrading the firmware in Vista 64, UNTIL i booted into Safe mode w/console. Then it flashed just fine. I saw significant performance improvements after upgrading the firmware. SMART was enabled and it solved a serious problem with BSODs after resuming from sleep. OCZ would be wise to start shipping these with the latest firmware!

Fast but expensive

continuous learner, Amazon
21 September 2009
  • Summary: I picked up this SSD last week, and it has made a big difference on my overall system performance. I have a HP Elitebook 8530w with 8GB DDR 2 RAM, 512MB ATI graphics processor, and an Intel P9600 CPU. The original drive was a 7200 RPM Hitatchi. This is drive came quick, installed quick, loaded a clean install of Windows 7 (64 bit) in under 20 minutes. Once the OS was installed, but before apps and data, it went from "power off" to a fully loaded MSN page in 20 seconds.

amazing but watch the drawbacks

Mr. Paul Regis "sponty3", Amazon
15 October 2010
  • Summary: Bought this fearing it wouldn't make *that* much difference. I was wrong. It made a huge difference to my Lenovo Thinkpad - but only for certain things. Many videos on youtube show the difference between booting up with an SSD vs a traditional hard disk. I did lots of reading, there are faster disks but this seemed to be in a good price point for performance v cost. But is it for you?

User Review

  • Excerpt: Была возможность получить данный девайс в полное распоряжение на "постоянку" на льготных условия, на системе core i5-750@3,6 8Gb DDRIII, win7 ultimate x64 после обновления прошивки до версии 1.4 этот SSD работает стабильно в плане скоростей записи/чтения - поддержка TRIM. Кто задумается о покупке такого устройства рекомендую тщательно ознакомиться с технологией работы, почитать форумы о проблемах/нюансах.
  • Pros: Высокая скорость работы, отсутствие шумов, вибраций, малый нагрев
  • Cons: стоимость, необходимость манипуляций для установки новых прошивок
