Summary: I never had this problem with my old drive, it only started happening after installing this one.
Pros: Faster than my previous HDD.
Cons: I have now had to re-install windows 3 times on this SDD. It will work great for a week and a half or two and then a file will get corrupt and windows will run some kind of scan which prevents me from logging on to windows.
Summary: 120GB is barely sufficient these days with the ever growing Win SXS folder.
Pros: Huge difference compared to traditional laptop 7200 drives or even the Momentus XT on Win 7 X64. Most applications simply snap open fast and I see huge performance improvements in my workstation (DB intensive) apps. A must have.
Cons: Had to flash to 3.55 as a safe step prior to using the drive not a big thing for me, but others who don't have much tech knowledge could find it daunting.
Pros: It works in my Asus K52F-BBR9 with Windows 7 Professional x64 and 8gb RAM. Speeds are close to 200mb/sec read, around 190mb/sec write last time I checked. Boots to Windows in less than 30 seconds.
Cons: Must flash firmware to the latest on the OCZ website. Initially, I had CHKDSK problems, but no BSOD's. All I had to do was update to the latest firmware, 3.55, and that solved my problems.
Summary: I have listed the the firmware update site below...
Pros: Good overall value once firmware updated!
Cons: If you have read the other reviews you will notice that many of us received units with older firmware (Pre 3.55 etc) and found out the hard way... after countless hours of wondering what the problem was!
Pros: This is an updated to my earlier review about file corruption under Windows7. I can confirm that the latest firmware 3.50 solved my problems and the two disks are now running fine fore the last couple of weeks. So I'm updating my rating from 1 to 4 stars since it's a great deal and speed updated for an older PC with only SATA2 3.0Gb/s connections.
Cons: Still upset with OCZ about releasing this beta product into the market. I wasted countless hours of troubleshooting, but then again, early adoption always runs the risk of issues like that.
