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.
Summary: They should do a bloody recall on these drives.. I suspect nearly every one one of them will fail within the 5 year warranty period. I hope this drive kills their credability. To be fair though.. their email support is quite good..
Pros: Operated quickly, benchmarked as one of the fastest Vertex 4's based on other users benchmarks. Very happy chappy.. until it died that is.
Cons: Chip failure. Had a random reboot a couple of times.. never suspected the SSD. Then boom. DEAD. Never again OCZ. Bad components. Stick with Intel.. Crucial, Samsung..
Pros: The price was very good when I bought it - Black friday sale. The storage size was decent back in 2012.
Cons: It started slowing down after a year. The disk just died. I bought it on 11/22/2012 and today is 09/03/2015. So it lasted about 2 years and 3 months. This drive was on a desktop machine running Windows 8.1 and wasn't used too often because I mainly use my Laptop. I also had a regular HDD for file...
Summary: Decent customer support until you ask for a replacement.
Pros: Good price Fast
Cons: I've had this drive for some time now. In the years that i've had it I have probably only used it 1/3 of the time. Within the first 4 months it crashed and i had to flash the firmware to get it to work again. I called OCZ and they gave me the impression that this was very common with this drive. ...
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 (L4...
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.
