Pros: Pop it in, change bios to ahci, run cmd prompt to adjust lead in and lead out parameters, acronis old installation over, and enjoy instant boots of everything... Also drive is very sturdy. If you have problems with this drive, the most likely cause is user error.
Summary: If you've never used SSD, stop living in the 90's and get one at any cost, this thing makes the WD Raptors look like rotary phones
Pros: I have been a proud owner of this for over 2 years now Fast, works great, runs Win7 and loads games lightning fast If you have never bought a Solid State Drive before you won't believe the difference. Games that would take several minutes (up to 5min sometimes on my old 7500rpm disks) to load (L4D/2, etc) now load in a matter of seconds if even taking more than 1 second. My computer has been on and running almost every single day for the last two years, with an averag...
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: I bought the 256gb in 2012 for $159. I thought I might get a few more today, but the price is ridiculous at $473. There must be a limited quantity. If I wanted to spend that on one SSD I'd buy a 1TB 840 evo for less! ...hey wait, is this reverse psychology?
Summary: With so many SSDs coming out these days I can't see why this old drive would cost so much, but it is a good drive. Could it be they found out they had made something of quality for a change and then got greedy with it?
Pros: This drive is fast and has been working great for me since 2012.
Cons: I don't understand why this drive is now more than double in price from when I bought it back in 2012 for $235.99. Sure, it's fast and reliable but the current price of $474.00 is nuts.
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.
