Really enjoy mine

Ryan S., Newegg
16 June 2010
  • Summary: The drive works great in Win7, fast, simple to install, and did i mention that it was fast. SSD's will be more with it when the price comes down a bit.
  • Pros: This thing does exactly what i wanted it to do. Freaking move. This drive has worked great for me and IF you have the money to spend on it i would recommend it.
  • Cons: The cost. These things are expensive and with as big of a tight wad that i am, i would think being closer to 125 to 150 would make it a good speed/price ratio.

Get out of forums

Keith H., Newegg
26 April 2010
  • Summary: Product works good, the suuport needs to be more professioal like ASUS and Microsoft who both have support areas that are up to date and they then also have forums, for people who want such areas.
  • Pros: Perfect, quiet, cool........
  • Cons: OCZ's support. This came with firmware 1.4 and had to upgrade to 1.5. After a fully weekend of reading all kinds of "forum" entries found our how to upadte etc. There support is no better than a BBS in the old days. You go to the ssd support and there sits firmware 1.3 and now your doing you own ...

Unsure how to keep SSD optimized under Win XP

Hung T., Newegg
6 April 2010
  • Pros: Easy to install. Fast. Apparently flawless with Win 7.
  • Cons: Win 7 was not compatible with some of my essential existing hardwares (fax, scanner) even though there are Win 7 drivers for them. So I have to use XP until my peripherals are replaced. I spent a lot of time reading way to optimize SSD under XP environment (alignment, turn off indexing, prefetchi...

If You Own An HP dv-6 Or dv-7 Notebook This May Not Be The Drive For You.

Peterson S., Newegg
26 February 2010
  • Summary: I've confirmed this problem on the dv6 and dv7 notebooks from HP. If you don't mind losing functionality for some of your programs, and having to re-buy your OS, than this drive will be OK for you.
  • Pros: Drive is faster than my spinners. Boot up time has reduced greatly, and programs load faster. Heat from the notebook is also reduced. The performance is awesome.
  • Cons: This con is not OCZ's fault. A huge con for me is that the drive will not work in my HP dv6-1361sb notebook with the original Recovery discs I made. When I try to re-install Win7 on the SSD I get an error message stating " The hard drive of this computer is smaller than the original shipped hard ...

User Review

  • Summary: I use it for my operating systems (Linux and Win7) and a few essential applications.
  • Pros: It's pretty fast, operating systems boot in seconds.
  • Cons: Realistically though, you will not get the speeds advertised. It's also expensive.

  • Summary: I've always wanted a SSD ever since I heard about them and started doing some research on them, and finally decided to get one now that these drives have the indilinx controllers and cache. Very satisfied with my purchase, only docked one egg because of the price / GB ratio. crazy!
  • Pros: -Very fast, read and write speeds are about as advertised -Awesome seek time, no more waiting for folders and files to appear -bragging rights haha
  • Cons: -expensive -not a much room

Hard Drive is Great.... but...

Sokkheang C., Newegg
20 December 2009
  • Pros: awesome drive. When using it as a single drive, multitasking is a little difficult. It pauses sometimes. But when stripping, it is amazingly fast.
  • Cons: I do not have any cons for the drive. I only have cons for the rebate. I been waiting for over 9 months or maybe more than that. Still have not received my rebate. So if you buying this because of rebate, don't bother. It won't be in the mail.

Schneller als die Polizei erlaubt!

  • Excerpt: Ich bin auf jeden Fall großer Fan von einer SSD Festplatte geworden. Sie dominiert einfach extrem gegenüber den HDD Festplatten. Ich selber betreibe noch 2x 1 TB HDD Festplatte und merke beim Kopieren bzw. Auslesen von Daten den extremen Unterschied.
  • Pros: Extrem schnell, Stromsparend (2 Watt), keine Wärmeentwicklung
  • Cons: Kosten

Sehr schnell, aber leider noch wenig Speicher

  • Excerpt: Hochladen, Programm öffnen... oh man dauert das alles lange. Vorallem nervig wenn man am Computer nur mal kurz abends die Adresse eines Restaurants startet oder morgens noch schnell eine eMail lesen will. Was ist der Unterschied zur normalen Festplatte.
  • Pros: +  super schnell
  • Cons: -  Speicherplatz noch sehr teuer,  +  Stromverbrauch
