Blasting high-speed drive ... Nothing fastest than this ...
27 September 2014
Summary: Blasting fast, this the most incredible and lighting speed drive I've ever had ... Windows 7 boots in 12 seconds! PLEX Media Server is extremely fast ... This is a dream come true, my Samy 1TB SSD is pathetic compared to this ...
Summary: This is no way to treat a customer... Offer something to keep me as a customer... I really like the product, but I will not return to OCZ to purchase anything unless they back up their product....
Pros: fast drive first drive easy to install
Cons: 1st drive stopped working in 4/2014 2nd drive(replacement of first drive) never worked when received(sent back) 3rd drive (replacement of 2nd drive) stopped working 9/2014... I was told warranty starts from date of purchase, so when the 3rd drive stopped working, I GOT NOTHING... NO NEW DRIVE, NO DISCOUNT OF THE NEXT DRIVE...NOTHING... I spoke to Customer Care, HA HA They said the same thing... So I guess they really want me to spend more money with OCZ!!
Summary: This drive is very fast, but it does have its drawbacks. The device itself has to POST, so it adds to the boot time. Once it gets past POST, boot is super fast. Games and programs load very fast. My computer is just very responsive in general for it. The only other complaint I have about it is the fact that it utilizes a built-in RAID for the data storage. They do that to make it really fast, but that makes it almost impossible for any kind of recovery.
Summary: I highly recommend this product if you DO NOT CARE about your data. A are taking risk when buying OCZ. I had 2 OCZs, one went down in 3 months, the other one in 13 months. Since I bough Intel SSD I haven't had any problem for the last 2 years. Choose what you want to save - money or your data+time. If you buy this product - make sure you back up your data DAILY.
Summary: WIN8 64bit - Fresh install.(6 minutes) I inserted the Windows DVD and at some point it said "choose path" and there wasn't a path to choose. But the window has a "load disc" option. I inserted the OCZ CD on the drive and the driver was installed in a second. Before i clicked on "next" i took the OCZ CD from the drive and inserted the windows DVD again. Clicked on next, 6 minutes after windows was installed. I ran the ATTO benchmark and the results were amazing.
Summary: Screaming fast! I love this thing and I wish I had bought the 480gb one. It is so much faster than anything I have ever used before. I have been using SSDs mounted to SATA for a long time, but PCI is the way to go for sure. SO FAST!!!! The install was easy for me. Follow the instructions, and it takes about 15-20min from opening the box to configuring the drive. Not bad at all, and kind of fun too.
