Do not buy

Donald W., Newegg
5 April 2015
  • Pros: SSD's are really fast but are they worth it?
  • Cons: I bought this in 2013 and it's the second OCZ I've owned and the second to go bad. One is bad luck, two in a row it just a junk product. Moving on!

Fast but unreliable

Ryan F., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Pros: When it works, it's fast, as a SSD should be.
  • Cons: It is very unreliable. Almost like clockwork, it has crashed on me about every 3 months since I bought it, requiring a full format in order to reinstall the OS. Luckily I have enough redundancy on my storage HDDs that it isn't a big loss, but they are meant for storage and I hate having to use th...

Two have now died on me... grr.

Rebecca V., Newegg
3 January 2015
  • Summary: Hopefully I can still return these. Extremely disappointed in OCZ. If the product doesn't work with the predominant OS, well... grr.
  • Pros: Worked well when they worked. Very fast until they started dropping like flies.
  • Cons: Dead. Bought two of these back in July '13. The first one died within a few months. Second one just died when Windows 8.1 tried to fix drive errors. Neither boot or Windows recognizes either drive. Very frustrating. Enough to turn me back to Vista on my Velociraptor.

Amazing at first, now dead/locked

Marcus F., Newegg
11 December 2014
  • Summary: During a routine Windows 7 Update shutdown process, received a blue-screen-of-death error. Resulted in a panic-locked 2.5" brick. Will not be purchasing OCZ products again since I can't RMA. Replacing with Samsung 250GB 840 Evo like I was told to buy the first time.
  • Pros: Extremely fast compared to your run of the mill non-ssd storage. Price ($124 when I bought it 1/2014)
  • Cons: High failure rate Unrecoverable data

Fast for Months

Alex B., Newegg
14 October 2014
  • Pros: Very easy to install, converted from HDD boot drive. Murdered the old boot times.
  • Cons: Started throwing Disk errors after 3 months, is no longer usable after 6. Looks like most of the con reviews started popping up shortly after I purchased it. :(

Failed twice in the first year.

  • Summary: I'm an OCZ fan since the early days. They are known among computer enthusiasts who build their own systems. Memory, Power supplies, overclocking and all that. Then, when the SSD emerged, they pushed hard to be the leader - and they were certainly the biggest name in SSD storage.

Beware there are better manufacturers of SSD drives out there.

Paul Thomas, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: On and off issues with this drive. I have had issues where this drive won't even show up in BIOS. After messing around with it for a couple of months it was running fine then one morning my PC crashed and again BIOS would not detect the drive. This time seems to be permanent and the drive is dead.
