Summary: Very fast, very pretty but died after two years in my macbook. Update: after using OCZ toolkit I was able to format the drive and fix the problem. Still testing to see if it'll last but the drive seems to be functioning.
Summary: Space/Speed/Trim auto when controller needs to or manual from the OCZ tool box. Running win 8.1 on it and start ups on fire even compared to win 7 on a OCZ 256 GB. I guess what 's said is true the larger the ssd the faster it is.
Summary: The drive ran admirably from Dec 2012 to July 2014. When the drive died it took my internal SATA cable with it costing me $40. After trying for 2 weeks to get an RMA from OCZ, I was denied despite providing total documentation for proof of purchase. I had bought a Vector 150 as a replacement, but I am now in the process of returning it. It is way too risky and expensive buying OCZ drives. I'm getting a Samsung.
Summary: So after 6 months of use the ssd decided to malfunction and it would no longer boot up or get recognize, i send the drive to the preferred OCZ data recovery company and guess what! the kind of failure this drive had was one of the worse you could get, nand controller burned, so now i need to pay 3K $ (yes 3000 us $) to do an attempt of recover my data. Do not buy this drive! stay away!
Summary: The drive performance is very good when you compare it to a standard HDD, it will make you computer fly, I installed it in a mac Book Pro. However a couple of months ago my computer started to show a slower behavior and it froze once in a while, finally the disk completely died. It overheats and smells like something's burning. The issue is related to the hardware, probably because of poor Quality checks at OCZ and/or usage of low quality components.

Summary: Ocz support is terrible. After submitting my RMA request I was told try to return it to where I had originally purchased it. When I could not do that they told me they could not process RMA's because OCZ had just been purchased by Toshiba so I had to wait another 3 weeks. They would not take returns but I'm sure they did not stop selling them.
Fast but died quickly and warranty service is horrible

Summary: The drive was nice and fast for about 13 months, running on a Mac Pro desktop that was up almost 24/7. Then it completely died one evening; couldn't read anything from it at all. It took about 3 days to get an RMA number from OCZ via their web support. After they received the drive it took about 4 days for them to ship out a replacement. Delivery of the replacement then took about 7 days thanks to their choice of the slowest possible delivery method.
