Summary: disabled hibernate and hybrid sleep and system restore, did leave temporary internet files and page file on the drive. used the drive everyday. did a secure erase and reinstalled the os and after about 2 weeks it starts corrupting files, windows would require chkdsk to be run which after it "fixes"...
Pros: a little faster than a daily defragmented 10,000 rpm raptor drive and doesn't need to be defragmented, silent, no moving parts.
Cons: did have some firmware issues in the beginning, causing corrupted files, had an issue with drive not working in ahci till i did a secure erase, once had a locked drive issue, bought back in 9/11 died in 6/14. Raptor drive is still alive when ssd is not.
Summary: Used this SSD to store my Windows OS and the important software - Photoshop, AutoCAD, Steam. The rest of the programs and all my files were stored on a normal hard drive. One day (a couple weeks after the warranty expired) it just stopped working.
Cons: Died within 7 months with all my data on it (thank goodness for backups), even after upgrading to the newest firmware. RMA'd it, we'll see how the new one performs. Definitely need to have it in RAID1 if you use it as mission-critical system drive.
Pros: I got this SSD during a one-day sale at Canada Computers for $100. Even at its current price, it is a very good deal for an SSD considering its capacity of 120GB. It's nice and fast, as expected from any SSD drive.
Cons: Disk Check errors always come up when using it as the boot drive for Windows 7. This has been tried and proven on several different computers and 3 different copies of Windows 7 64-bit. The error surfaces approximately 2-3 weeks into use. It should be noted that it is still usable and all, but th...
Summary: I purchased the OCZ Vertex Plus to replace a failing hard drive in my wife's late 2007 Macbook3,1. The computer had no problem recognizing the drive, creating a partition, and installing Snow Leopard from the disc.
Summary: Got this drive because the company was paying and linked this drive to buy...if I had my way I would have bought an Intel drive...I hope this lasts...so far, so good, but the other reviews don't put my mind at ease.
Pros: Price per gigabyte is fair for an SSD. Major reliability upgrade from a standard mechanical hard drive, which is why I purchased this for a laptop that is heavily mobile and bounces around in the passenger seat of a truck.
Cons: Didn't notice much performance upgrade from a standard 5400RPM drive...it's faster, but not a lot.
