Just over 3y

Mark J., Newegg
6 November 2012
  • Summary: My First SSD, was a good ride while it lasted
  • Pros: Fast drive. I had heard they had some initial problems. When I first purchased it I immediately flashed to a firmware that added Trim support. Reliably worked fine for just about 3 years. (still somewhat functional, but explorer started crashing often in windows using this drive as C:)
  • Cons: Initially had to do a firmware update that was in dos mode at the time (not terribly hard, or disconcerting to me but I could see it being off putting to others.) the failure of the drive was at least intermittent, I believe I can still salvage data off of it.

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.

Good

Lawrence Z., Newegg
16 September 2011
  • Summary: Nice drive. Back up everything you've got on it to another drive and you're good to go.
  • Pros: Bought this for a new build back in 2009. Fast - best thing I ever bought and I can no longer use a regular HDD without feeling like I'm riding a chariot when I could be driving a Ferrari.
  • Cons: Died on me once about half a year after I bought it for no obvious reason - BIOS couldn't see the disk as the file table was corrupted/missing for no apparent reason. Eventually fixed it after two days and has been running great since.

Works

M R., Newegg
24 November 2010
  • Summary: Decided to swap with a friend who has a Samsung 128GB SSD. This works great on his high end Dell and the Samsung works great in my older 1705. Just knocked one egg off for the Cons.
  • Pros: Fast SSD. Decent pricing.
  • Cons: Wouldn't detect %50 of the time in a Dell 1705 laptop. With latest Bios, only gets detected half the time. Obviously this is irritating.

Firmware Problems

Anonymous, Newegg
5 November 2010
  • Summary: Unluckily, I bought one with earliest firmware having lots of terrible problems. And the process of updating is really troublesome. You guys can have a look at the steps in OCZ forum. I hope the newly manufactured ones will take latest firmware.
  • Pros: Some general advantages of SSD, e.g. fast and quiet.
  • Cons: Very very troublesome firmware updating.
