Summary: If they could make this where it actually can be used in place of a hard drive without any issue and make it where it will last as long or more than a hard drive then this would be a really worthwile purchase, but as it stands, I would have to say that I would definitely pass this one up.
Pros: Works great when it works. once it dies, forget about getting it running again.
Cons: Will die if you have it connected to a laptop that goes into sleep/hibernate made or if your computer is set to ahci mode. I contacted OCZ about mine dying, of course it was out of warranty period and all I was told was too bad. I really thought these were built to last a long time and actually t...
Pros: When it worked, I'd gave it raves. It was a superior drive on speed and didn't have a problem one with it. Until one day, it decided it just didn't and it failed hard. Personally, for the money.. Not worth the pain.
Cons: Seems like I'm the other with the complaints of it dying right outside the warranty. When it failed, it seriously failed. No warning, nothing other than started making my machine hang on POST. After alot of patience, I got it reformatted and actually was using it as a secondary storage device for...
Summary: Do not buy from OCZ, sooner or later you'll regret it. 3 years is a long time for some but I've got a Western Digital clunker HDD from 2005 that still spins up and works from a Dell I had in college. With no moving parts you'd think these drives would last ages.
Summary: I needed to upgrade my PC, and this was an excellent choice for doing that. My windows exp. scale hits 7.4 with this SSD. (UPDATE) After less than 3 months performing flawlessly, it bricked on me last night... No warning or signs of impending failure like you would get from a normal HDD.
Cons: Died after 1 month of use. I purchased two of these and created a raid out of them and they both died at the same time and I lost everything. Didn't expect to need to have a second backup since they were in a RAID.
