Showing 1-10 of 78

Summary: Works well. Windows 7 x64 boot time of 25-ish seconds to usable desktop. The speed means that the computer is usable even before the background processes have finished loading.. Has been reliable so far (about a year)
Summary: OCZ not only makes a quality product, they include a sticker for you too to tell everyone about it. "My SSD is faster than your HDD." Running some benchmarks against this drive yielded impressive results. It was 10 times faster than my internal drive. Wow! The future is so awesome.
Summary: A friend of mine raved about SSD's so I tried this one based on a sale and they are incredible.. if you install windows on a SSD you will be amazed at its boot time and will never go back to conventional hard drives!
Summary: Just installed this on an old PC with only SATA 1 ports on the motherboard. I flashed the firmware and formatted it on my new PC first - the updating process was very easy - burned the firmware to a CD and printed up the instructions. I was finished in just about five minutes from start to finish.
Summary: The drive was great but unfortunately my laptop was to old to support solid state. I chose solid state because you have faster load time when booting. Too bad Toshiba didn't have a BIOS update for my laptop to support it
Summary: The typical Windows sluggishness was a freaking pain and I never bother with defraging or CCleaner or even simply schedule them in Windows so I bought an SSD as a quick solution.
Pros: I bought it for $50 almost a year ago, but SSDs, flash drives, and RAM are a lot cheaper now anyway. I was aware of the bad reviews but updated the firmware before anything else, installed Windows 7 64 bit, and never had any problems.
Cons: 60GB was *just* enough for Windows 7 and all my apps but I have a 64GB flash drive to store all my files etc. Be aware that after formatting it's actually about 55GB.
Pros: Are simply to say, from coming from a Momentus XT. It is obviously an increased speed difference. My boot up time has been cut into 1/3 of the time it took with the Momentus XT. In 50 seconds, I am ready for my desktop!
