OCZ drive. Do not buy this product

Jeff Missey, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: I have had two of these drives go bad in the past 6 months. I am in the process of RMAing these; however, it is very frustrating when you get an OS installed and after a period of months, both drives stopped working on seperate desktops. I will never purchase an OCZ drive again and will not use the RMA drives as a system disk or for longterm storage.

Run, don't walk, RUN AWAY FROM OCZ!!!

D. Raskin "Judge", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought one of these puppies to host a virtual disk for development work. A few months later, it vanished! No controller I have (Intel, Gigabyte, Promise or Highpoint) can see the drive. I've followed all of the instructions I can find and nothing. In searching for a solution, I discovered that there are a half-dozen people who have reported success and a huge pile of people who have lost data.

Worst Junk EVER !

Matthew, Amazon
12 October 2012
  • Summary: This SSD will not save you time, instead you will spend countless hours troubleshooting and reinstalling your backup files untill you just buy another one. This drive doesnt get recognized to boot half of the time, and when it does there are all kinds of other issues, lockups, blue screens. Not worth your time, money, and blood pressure. A total piece of rubbish, the manufacturer should be sued in a class action suit for perpetrating such a POS upon the unknowing public.

DON'T BUY THIS SSD

Raymond Phan, Amazon
5 September 2012
  • Summary: I got OCZ Petro 120GB for $90. Installed Windows 7 Ultimate. Running about 1 week. OS missing. Re-format and Re-install OS 3 times and it happened the same [OS missing]. Beware buyers. This company may assemble cheap stuffs to sell cheap. Waste of money. Re-send the product to the manufacture but not yet got back the replacement.

WORST SSD EVER.

MisterMysterio, Amazon
28 August 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the 128GB OCZ Petrol in February 2012 and immediately updated its firmware to 3.12. Within 6 weeks of using the device as a secondary file storage drive in a laptop (storing 40GB of files-- 1/3 of rated capacity), OSX started reporting read errors, making affected files inaccessible. Running ddrescue reported about 300KB of i/o errors across the disk. The drive sat on a shelf until August 2012 when I updated the firmware to 3.15.

Failed! Failed! Failed!

Robin Ray "redrobin62", Amazon
9 July 2012
  • Summary: This SSD worked fine for about a month. Then, out of the blue, Windows wouldn't boot up. The bios won't recognize it. After a few minutes of being powered down, it booted fine. This happened a few times last week. Yesterday, it just wouldn't boot up the computer at all. This morning, after it rested all night, the computer boots up fine. (It's what I'm using now). Junk, junk, junk. I don't know if SSD's all behave this way, or just this OCZ Petrol.
