Great until it stopped working
21 June 2013
Summary: Looks like it is the same as several others here. Purchased this just over 1 year ago to replace the SATA HD in my laptop. Cloned the original HD, swapped it out and BAM, instant improvement. Blazing fast boot up (in the 10-13 second range). But, it was not to last. Tried booting up the laptop today and the system stated there was no bootable OS. Pulled the SSD out and placed it in an external can to see if my desktop could recognize the SSD. But it saw nothing.
Summary: I had this drive for 2 FW updates and then returned it. It was a nightmare to update if you run it on an Apple. I had to go to the lengths of removing the drive and installing it into a windows or Linux based system to update it. They are fast but again not for use on an Apple product no matter how much the package states it is Mac compatible they are not. I will never own another OCZ product for this false advertising. Stay away if you are an apple owner.
Summary: Although I purchased this from a different vendor, the first drive stopped functioning after 6 months, and was replaced by OCZ. Now the replacement has also failed, and I am in the process of getting it replaced.
Summary: Mine died after 14 months. Was working fine all along until one day when my computer cannot detect the SSD during POST. Tried changing SATA connections and cables made no difference. I think there are some serious flaws with the sandforce controller chips used, their high (and often sudden) failure rate is way too high to be acceptable. I have 3 SSDs by OCZ, and 2 failed within their 3 yr warranty period.
Summary: I purchased one of these from another vendor back in feb 2011... died and did not even show up in the BIOS in May. OCZ replaced it, of course my data was lost for good as they just gave me a new drive. Now this 2nd one has just died again (again not showing up even in BIOS). Once again all my data is gone Im sure. I have an RMA and I am HOPING the give me a different model as this one just does not seem to be working out.
Summary: The drive was blazing fast when it worked; however it died after 10 months. For the price I bought it at ($233), this is definitely unacceptible. Please do yourself a favor and buy something else. There have been several other reviews with similar outcomes.
Summary: I know what you're thinking "I'll be one of the lucky ones to get a stable 120gb drive!" yeah thats what I thought! I've never had a hard drive fail....Until 10 minutes after installing windows 7 64bit on this one. Worked fine and then froze and then motherboard would no longer recognize it was there- even if i changed sata cables and changed sata port. Don't test your luck- go with a more reputably reliable drive.
