2 out of 5 eggsDied

Pros: Fast

Cons: Expensive, unreliable

Other Thoughts: Fast while it lasted. Died after only 5 years. No warning. Pathetic.

5 out of 5 eggs4.5 Years and Still Going Strong!

Pros: Bought this as an upgrade for my gaming rig. Has served me as a boot drive for 4.5 years and have had zero problems with it. As much flak as OCZ gets in the reviews for their products, I've had zero problems with either of the SSD drives I've bought from them. Very happy!

Cons: None.

3 out of 5 eggsJust under three years

Pros: Fast. After BIOS gets done with its musings, I'm into Win7x64 about seven seconds later.
WEI rates it as a 7.1 in my configuration.

Cons: Random BSODs early on in ownership, even though I got one with the newer firmware out of the box. They have since become less frequent, even though no hardware changes had or have occurred.

Recently (and frequently), however there have been a few occurrences where BIOS will not detect the drive. The latest of which occurred this past weekend. The drive was not detected, though my RAID array and other drives were.

Other Thoughts: To me, its recent behavior indicates imminent failure. I'll be a little...surprised...if OCZ disagrees when I submit this for warranty replacement, as this does not seem to be normal operation.
I've owned this for just under three years, and like the other reviewer, this was my first SSD.

4 out of 5 eggsJust over 3y

Pros: Fast drive. I had heard they had some initial problems. When I first purchased it I immediately flashed to a firmware that added Trim support. Reliably worked fine for just about 3 years. (still somewhat functional, but explorer started crashing often in windows using this drive as C:)

Cons: Initially had to do a firmware update that was in dos mode at the time (not terribly hard, or disconcerting to me but I could see it being off putting to others.) the failure of the drive was at least intermittent, I believe I can still salvage data off of it.

Other Thoughts: My First SSD, was a good ride while it lasted

3 out of 5 eggsWorked great for 27 months...

Pros: Inexpensive; value priced. Performed flawlessly for the first 27 months I owned it.

Cons: No longer recognized by BIOS. Inexplicably, it just died. Submitted an RMA request to OCZ.

Other Thoughts: We'll see how responsive OCZ is it comes to getting me back up and running.

4 out of 5 eggsRMA was quick and painless

Pros: it is a pretty quick drive. while it lasted.... good customer service support.. got a new one delivered in about a week time.

Cons: it died after 11 months of light use.. on my system.. went out without warning.. it just kept on trying to boot windows and hang.

Other Thoughts: got a new one from ocz in about a week. lets see how long this one will last

2 out of 5 eggsWorked well.. when it did.

Pros: It worked well in the beginning, windows installed great, pretty fast.

Cons: Suddenly stopped working after about a year of use, shutting off completely after working for 1-15 minutes. I couldn't save anything off of the drive, windows kept freezing and required a couple hard reboots (power switch on the psu) to make the drive get recognized again. Applied for a rebate about three weeks ago, they got it almost two weeks ago, not a word in response.

Other Thoughts: If you tell someone to contact the rma department for an update, maybe you should have an e-mail address listed for your rma department somewhere. Many reviews say it takes a month to get a replacement, not the "1-2 business days" listed on their website. I will never buy another OCZ SSD. Ever. I probably won't even touch anything else made by the company.

Do Not Buy.

1 out of 5 eggsComplete junk

Pros: A little faster than a regular 7200 RPM drive.

Cons: Completely unreliable. When you buy a hard drive, the top most priority is the reliability. Reliability is higher than speed. This drive is not reliable at all. I bought one junk like this in June 2011. The drive failed after 1 week of usage out of blue. I lost a few images. OCZ support was great, they sent me a replacement drive. Here you go, after a few months, it failed again. I lost a great deal of content on the drive.

Other Thoughts: From all the horror stories I have heard from the web, I conclude that the failure rate of this drive (or brand) is near 80%, don't buy!

2 out of 5 eggsJoining the RMA club

Pros: Was a great drive while it worked. Introduced me to the SSD market and the speeds have been amazing.

Cons: Unfortunately, like many others here, I am joining the RMA club (first RMA ever after 15 years of building pc's). I have owned the drive for a little over a year and a half and now the drive will not be recognized in bios - very disappointing.
