Summary: The simple breakdown... stupid fast compared to HDDs, but very unreliable. The not so simple breakdown... I got two of these and set them up in RAID 0 for my primary. Speed and near instant load times were incredible compared to my previous Raptor array.
Summary: The good: Fast read / write times. Windows 7 64bit boots in 25 seconds. Programs seem to load in a flash. Great amount of space Nothing to complain about - yet. Other Thoughts: I bought this as a refurbished drive. I was skeptical and purchased the 2 year warranty.
Summary: I had to return the first OCZ SSD because it failed and would not even allow itself to be re-formated. I have had four total drive failures since the purchase of the first. Today I experienced another total drive failure.
Summary: I was happy with the performance of the drive. Obviously much faster than the traditional hard drive it replaced. But a few weeks ago it started failing and stopped getting detected in the BIOS. I've learned the hard way that OCZ's support and RMA process is a joke.
Summary: These are a tad obsolete now, but I still use them, 5 of them, in a raid-5 configuration, and they are blistering and flawless. I forget how slow rotating drives are, until I go use some other computer and whine like crazy about slow it is.
Summary: Against my better judgment, seeing all the horrendous reviews, I purchased one. For weeks I had seen good prices and every time I said no way, not worth the risk. However, when you get down below 50 cents/GB with free shipping you have to give it a shot. I already have 9 SSDs so this makes #10.
Summary: While it worked this drive was fast. In less than a year this product failed causing me to re-installing windows on my new machine with an 10,000 rpm Raptor (I had from my old machine). Their RMA process sucks it's been over a week and I sent the drives back and still no update on my RMA.
