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.
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.
Summary: Was using this for 5 months, standard use, and it completely died. Tried to recover many different ways. No luck. Seeing the high failure rates I strongly recommend you do NOT buy this product.
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.
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.
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.
