3 December 2014
Summary: For the most part it works fine. But I have had some major issues that I had to self repair. BSOD for one and well some thing seems to be wrong with the physical pins to connect. But never lost data and never crashed after over two years of use.
Summary: I should have read the reviews - I should have listened! I've been building PCs all my life, and finally decided to move to SSD in February 2013. Bought one of these, and it failed - completely, utterly, totally - October 2013. RMA'd, and received (refurbished) replacement, that just failed in exactly the same way in January 2014. Yes they're fast, SSD is a no brainer, but this particular product sucks.
Summary: My experience is the following: * Great fast drive that makes a world a difference. After using a SSD I'll never go back to a regular hard drive * This drive failed after 16 months of use in a desktop * The OCZ support and RMA process is so bad that I will never to buy this brand again, even though they feature some of the top drives on the market.
Summary: I got this HD to improve the performance of my wife's otherwise ancient laptop and it did so beautiflly. For the money a better buy than memory. Have now gotten a few more years out of the laptop since the upgrade.
Summary: Stay far away! I purchased this in August 2012 and it failed within 6 months. OCZ replaced it (with the same drive) and that one has failed in less than 6 months. I will once again have to go through the RMA process if OCZ will agree to replace the 2nd defective drive. I have little faith that anything from OCZ will function for more than 6 months.
Summary: Has been reliable and fast for several months. Fit perfectly in my laptop and increased the OS boot time exponentially! (10 seconds vs. 24 seconds!) This is seriously the easiest upgrade you can do to reduce loading times for your PC (laptop or desktop) and I highly recommend the OCZ brand of SSD.
Summary: I had this drive set up in a RAID 0 with another 120GB SSD by the same manufacturer. This drive was purchased brand new while the other was purchased around the same time, refurbished, from NewEgg. 6 months later this drive crashed and my OS was lost forcing me to reimage. I would not recommend this drive. Spend a little extra and go with a Samsung SSD. You will save yourself a lot of time and heart ache in the future.
