Failed in 3 years, like many

Pros: My initial review was 5/5 back when I initially received the product. Worked fine while it worked...
Cons: Failed in three years. A lot of people have been having failures at around the three year mark. This item used to be 5/5 review score but the sheer number of failures have dragged it down. It was a tremendous pain when this thing failed. Funny how it failed right outside the warranty period.
Summary: I've never had a product make such a significant boost to my computers speed than this SSD. Upgraded memory, Video Cards etc... SSD's are the way to go. I just hope that in my case they are ultimately more reliable. Again fingers crossed that OZD will help take care of this defective drive Win8.1 Q9400 - (on a Corsair Hydro H55 w/twin 120 fans) PN5-Q DDR2 8GB GTX650ti HAF Case w/750W PS
Pros: Wow very fast, loads windows in 10minutes. Updates take forever but that's not the drives fault. Did I say it was fast.
Cons: Purchased in 2011, it took a few month's before I noticed it started to hang up on Windows loading. Figured it was a problem with the install. I did it again, again and again.... It would hang as the windows logo started to appear. Every time?? I learned to just let it sit. eventually it would load. It finally died. That sucks. My HDD's lasted longer? I thought the benefit of a SSD was no moving parts therefore a longer lasting product? Somewhat disappointed. I just e...
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. However, about 6 months in, one of the drives started failing intermittently... causing BSODs which in time corrupted enough system files to keep my OS from booting.
Starts out fast. But dies just like all my OCZ SSD's

Summary: too far from warranty.
Pros: Started out fast. Booted up in 10 seconds from post screen.
Cons: After about a month or two started freezing just like my other OCZ drive before the windows logo starts loading. Then after some firmware updates and reinstalling the OS, still windows 7 logo freezes before loading just like on last OCZ SSD. I lived with this for awhile, after one more firmware update it worked better for a bit but then crashed completely and is unrecognizable. bleh.
Summary: WONDERFULLY FAST, not reliable! Windows 7 boot, I didn't get a blue Welcome screen. Bought in June, first went into use in July, died in December during the holiday. about 10 days ago, they said it needs to be replaced, and they will contact me about replacements [diff dept?] and I'm still waiting!
