Pros: Fantastic SSD- Picked it up for a steal at $70. Over 10 reformats- thousands of gigabytes of data written and deleted and still going strong over 3 years later. OCZ has earned a customer for life
Summary: This was my first SSD to have ever owned. I was uncertain as what to expect from an SSD much less from an OCZ brand as I have never owned an OCZ product before. I must say I have not been disappointed. it will be hard for me to let go of this drive. I couldn't help but notice two things...
Pros: Fast, reliable, high capacity, solid SSD. Purchased on late December of 2013 from M1cr0 C3n73r for approx. $320 before tax and still going strong (Pulled the box, blew off the dust off the box and still have the receipt). I *just* replaced it with a 1TB Samsung SSD and may transfer it to another ...
Summary: This was my first ever SSD which I bought back in mid 2012. After seeing the latest reviews where others have commented on the drive dying after 2-2.5 years makes me think I'm lucky to have it still working after 3 years.
Pros: It was a great drive from its time. Still kickin after 3 years.
Cons: Wished it cost the same as the drive I have now. Wished there was more long-term support for the drive as well.
Summary: This thing came highly recommended and performed very well. I had this set as my boot drive but also had a raid 0 with two conventional drives covering everything else. This drive was never more than 1/4 full, had a firmware update before installation, I never ran defrags or full virus scans on it,...
Pros: Fast Easy initial setup
Cons: Died suddenly 2 1/2 years later. No explanation.
Summary: the Intel Rapid Storage drivers when i first added them to my build were junk and caused regular crashing. thankfully an update or two later and everything settled down. there have been no issues at all sense then. (this was the first month of owner ship)
Pros: its 2015 and these 3 year old drives are still running strong. they have been in a RAID0 array sense day one and have provided 800+ MB/s read/write operations reliably the entire time, no slowing down with age, and no data retention issues like some other major SSD drives.

Summary: Bought for a gaming rig. It was my first SSD on a personal rig and I was very surprised at how much faster the PC booted and open/closed programs, as well how quickly in game load times became.
Pros: Great drive for a good price bought back in 2013 and have had no issues. Win 7 boots twice as fast as my previous tradition drive. Fast game load times.
