The OCZ Synapse Series is optimized for caching applications to dynamically manage the Synapse SSD in conjunction with standard hard disk drives (HDDs), to provide users with SSD-level performance across the entire capacity of the HDD. The OCZ Synapse Series leverages the latest and most advanced hardware and software technology to deliver superior storage performance without sacrificing HDD capacity. For users craving the performance advantages of SSDs combined with the high capacities associated with HDDs, OCZ offers the first no-compromise approach to enabling high-performance and high-capacity storage for virtually any PC platform.

The OCZ Synapse Series integrates Dataplex caching software to dynamically manage the use of both SSD and HDD for superior overall storage performance. This combination creates an environment where the most frequently used "hot" data stays on the ultra-fast SSD, while the "cold" data remains on the larger capacity HDD (sold separately). Advanced caching algorithms learn user behavior and adapt storage policies to ensure optimal performance for each individual user, maximizing productivity for the most demanded programs and applications.

Synapse Series integrates seamlessly within any modern PC platform, ensuring optimal compatibility along with performance gains. (Synapse Cache FAQs:

  • newegg High performance SSD architecture The OCZ Synapse SYN-25SAT3-64G combines state of the art architecture and cutting edge NAND controller to deliver exceptional performance of up to 550MB/s Max Read, up to 490 MB/s Max Write and 75,000 IOPS Max 4KB Random Write over the SATA 6Gbps interface. It offers a great boost to the overall system performance and can be configured as your HDD Cache when used together with Dataplex caching software.
  • newegg Integrated Dataplex Caching Software The Integrated Dataplex Caching Software Intelligently manages HDD and SSD simultaneously. “Hot” data is transferred to Synapse SSD for highest performance, access, and bandwidth and “Cold” data is routed to HDD for highest capacity usage. No data migration or OS installation required.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Synapse Series offers native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

4 out of 5 eggsNot a boot drive huh?

Pros: I know this says this is not suppose to be used as a boot drive,but thats how ive been using mine and it works great.installed windows 8.1 pro on here with about 15gigs to spare after optimization's.speed is good,way faster then my old toshiba mechanical drive and very easy installation.also comes with a 2.5" bracket if that's something you need.all in all a decent ssd for the time being.

Cons: wish they would of givin the whole 64 gigs instead of putting 30 towards the reserve.not that big of an issue though the 30 works just fine.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: NONE

Cons: This item apparently does NOT work with all computers. Not even recognized by mine.

Other Thoughts: Reconditioned garbage. Wasn't worth the money I Wasted ordering it. Can't get any refund. Worthless.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

The problem you are experiencing may not be a problem at all. The Synapse cache should be recognized by your computer EFI/BIOS but may not be visible in the OS if Dataplex is properly setup. The Synapse Cache is not a drive you see in Computer, it is hidden to the OS as it serves as a cache drive to your traditional HDD. You are also correct the Synapse Cache SSD does not work with ALL computers, there are limitations.

Please contact us so we may assist you with this. Most likely this can be resolved with some simple troubleshooting and setup advice.

Thank you for sharing your feedback.. You may contact us using the link I have provided below.

Kind Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: Speeded up windows to light speed loading. Literally I turn on power and once the microsoft logo dissapears windows is up and running. Used to take about 4 mins to be fully up, now and I timed it it is up and running in twelve seconds. and thats with a wireless connection hooking up to. seems to have speed up the internet connection speed. that would have taken a few minutes on its own to fully be connected..Now as soon as Windows is up (12seconds) four seconds and wireless is fully connected! Very pleased with this product and on sale it's a steal! It will definitely speed up older hard drives dramatically. As another noted prices on SSD are dropping so fast, soon if not already this would not be cost effective. As you could purchase a SSD for all your storage. And if you cant get it on sale, Just buy an ssd. BUT AT THE PRICE IT TERRIFIC. The nice thing is you don't have to worry and hassle with data migration at all. As it's not a drive in itself. You wont see it on your drive list.

Cons: I see none, other then I didnt get a sticker, WAAA. It looked pretty lame anyhow.

Other Thoughts: I didnt even need to format this drive as told by other helpfull buyer, just skip it. Dont know why OCZ says you need to. Just check to make sure your trim is on and working. Bring up the command prompt to check it. you must run CP as administrator. Enter : fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotifyfsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify. This will show either a 0 or a one. 0= workin. `1= not so much.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat results

Pros: 32 Gigs of SSD cache really speeds up an old WD Black!
Product exactly as described IF you read the description.
Adding this to my wifes system has given it the same feel as mine that really has an SSD.
Includes 2.5 to 3.5 adapter - see other thoughts.
Current drivers. All required screws included.

Cons: Risk of corrupting OS. The fix / workaround is not in the instructions.

Other Thoughts: Back up your data!

Five eggs if not for corrupting my OS. I was able to retrieve all of the data from another computer in the Home Group.

The solution; and step missing in the instructions: Secure erase.

Here is how you want to install this.

BEFORE mounting drive in the adapter copy the Dataplex key code from bottom of drive.

Place drive in adapter and then in HDD tray.

Download OCZ toolbox.

Plug in drive

Using the toolbox perform a SECURE ERASE and then enable TRIM.

Download and install Dataplex software.

Following the Dataplex prompts mount the Synapse in the system HDD.

Follow any remaining instructions.

Click on Dataplex from "programs" to verify drive is working.

My only issue was a result of not doing a secure erase. After I followed the steps listed above I have not had any problems or complaints. All said and done I am happy with the drive and would buy another if I had the need.

Note; This drive will show up in BIOS during boot but will not be seen by Win7.

With the prices for 240 Gb SSDs coming down this will become less of cost effective option; even at $40.

5 out of 5 eggsIt will make you HDD faster

Pros: price, cache

Cons: small capacity (30GB or even zero)

Other Thoughts: For the best performance, this should be used as a cache for HDD. I am using this with my 2TB HDD and they work like a hybrid.

5 out of 5 eggsRight size drive

Pros: The other guy got the correct size drive - there is 64gb of flash, but only 32gb show up because they have massively overprovisioned. Drive working fine out of the box, tested 100% good through a Hard Disk Sentinel Read + Write test across the entire drive.

Cons: Software working ok for me but not actually updated for windows 8, so you have to install it in compatibility mode for windows 7

3 out of 5 eggsWrong size drive

Pros: The drive works fine.

Cons: I get a 32gb drive in a 64gb box and waited 5 days for this drive to do caching and now I have to send it back and wait longer after I just reformatted.... this happen just disappointing.

3 out of 5 eggsBuggy but finnaly works

Pros: It works after several re-formats...quite good actually. boot times are quicker, and games load faster, don't even notice it was a hassle to install once you install correctly.

Cons: Its EXTREMELY FAIL if you don't plug this into the correct SATA port. Place into the second slot after your big TB hard drive...i tested it with my raptor and it blue screened constantly had to re-install windows about 8 times where i said screw it I'm just going to install it on my TB Cadaviar black and now its running flawless.

Other Thoughts: Games load 5x faster especially when it comes to BF3 or CS:GO...boot times have also sped up loving it now, but at the start i almost trashed it for bieng so unstable with my raptor and multiple drives for dual boots.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: increases overall computer performance by about 30%

Cons: not clear directions

Other Thoughts: this is not a ssd where you install the os. you do not need to reformat your computer to receive the benefits of this drive. simply plug in and install the software that accompanies it. you will not see the performance increase until about the 2nd or 3rd restart.
