Summary: So, this is directed at the manufacturer. Amazon was easy to deal with, and the transaction/shipping went off with out a hitch as always. Very poor read/write speeds even for the time when purchased!
Summary: ---- UPDATE ---- Even after more than 8 months, OCZ replaced my Petrol SSD for a newer Agility 4, wich so far has worked incredibly well. Kudos to OCZ for caring about their customer, but the two star rating remains for the horrible Petrol drive. ---- Bought this as my first SSD on February 2012.
Summary: Thought I was getting a good deal on this drive when I originally purchaced it but after 6 months the computer stopped detecting it. They did RMA it but they replaced it with a 60gb instead of 64gb and the 10.00 in shipping definatly killed the sale when I purchaced it.
Summary: I received the OCZ Petrol today to install into my ageing 2007 Macbook Black, hoping that it would improve the speed considerably. If your Mac/PC is as old as mine then it is probably very slow, very noisy, and struggling to load large apps and movies.
