5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Plugged in, installed Vista 32 Ultimate, ran fast. Didn't have to do any of the tweaks others have mentioned.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Also have a Patriot Warp 32 SSD which runs Vista 64. No troubles with either SSD. OCZ work s just like a spinner drive. ASUS M3A78-T, Phenom x4 2.6, 4 GB 1066. Didn't have to do any of the tweaks mentioned by other reviewers... works great and though it may not seem that much faster than a spinner, use it for a week and then go back, then you'll know it's a great step up.

5 out of 5 eggsServes the purpose

Pros: as compared to traditional 3.5" Hard Drives:
1. smaller (dimensions)
2. lighter
3. lower power draw
4. little or no heat dissipated
5. no moving parts = no noise
6. Fast reads
Perfect for HTPC boot disk, 32GB more then enough to install OS of your choice.

Cons: As compared to traditional 3.5" Hard Drives:
1. small capacity
2. high price per storage unit
3. slower writes

Other Thoughts: It is not very fair comparison we all are making. How many owns more then one SSD or has experience with more then one? That would be only case of apple to apple comparison. We all tend to compare SSDs to HDDs so we all have to be very careful to make it fair. Two different techs, young and teething vs. old and very mature. I got mine for one reason, HTPC. I wanted a boot disk that is silent and does not dissipate heat and is no bigger then HDD and no slower on reads then HDD. I do not care for writes as most of the data comes of the NAS server anyway. HTPC is the killer app for SSDs, other then that the tech has some catching up to do. 2009 should be the year of SSD if you ask me.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Device

Pros: We are using the OCZ in VMWare installed ESX and ESXi Servers as the bootup device that holds the relative small kernel to boot VMWare. Current tests show superior startup time when rebooting. We are looking for the reliability of the memory type SSD gives us to avoid past mechanical prolbems we had with virtual server bootup devices. The product installed instantly and was boot ready in minutes. We are excited about the low price for such an important solution to our problems

Cons: None at this time

Other Thoughts: Research SSD before buying - if you are looking for reliablity and low power and mostly read access - you found your product. If you need superior read / write speed, buy the OCZ OCZSSD2-1S64G 2.5" 64GB SATA II Internal Solid state disk (SSD)

4 out of 5 eggsPurchased for real world use... not benchmarking.

Pros: [Re]installed XP twice, applied service pack, defrag, etc., during 3-4 hours of initial testing with no fatal faults, signs of corruption, device drop out, controller errors, etc.

During installation, the SSD felt like an average 7200 RPM hard disk. Once everything settled (completed installations and updates), computer response was very snappy. It was even quicker after installing the proper motherboard drivers. So far I've loaded up FF3, and application load was quite immediate.

During normal usage, the SSD felt snappy compared to my 150GB Raptor X. The access and read times made a big difference.

For the price and performance (albeit capacity), I would definitely consider using this SSD in low power ultra compact silent HTPCs without breaking the bank.

Cons: Intensive single drive R/W operations (major software installation and updates that use the SSD as temp, defrag, etc.) will exploit the weaknesses of this particular SSD. It is better to redirect temp to another drive to minimize SSD usage especially when the SSD purpose is for OS only.

Although the drive is mechanically silent, my ears can pick up faint high pitched sounds during heavy access. It was not a big deal because it was almost 2 AM and everyone was asleep. ;-)

Other Thoughts: MOBO: EVGA 680i SLI
CPU: C2D E6750 @ 2.66GHz
MEM: 4x1GB Corsair DDR2-800

~28 GB formatted capacity. Within a few hours of usage, I managed to test XP SP2 on an 8GB partition. I only had time to briefly optimize the system by disabling page file, indexing, and System Restore. The entire suite of post installation patches was not downloaded. Vista 64-bit is next for the secondary partition.

I would not recommend using this SSD for anything too intensive other than to load an OS or two. Although this SSD essentially replaces my Raptor X for XP/Vista installations, the Raptor X will be responsible for all of my applications, temp directory, swap file, cache, etc.

Someday an Intel/Micron uber-fast SSD will replace this SSD for O/S chores, and it'll be used for internal storage. For fast mass storage for applications and games, a VelociRaptor will do just fine.

2 out of 5 eggsbe careful

Pros: Fast for sequential writes

Cons: fails miserably for random writs

Other Thoughts: the JMicron controller in this drive has massive issues with small random writes, leading to IO delays galore

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we encourage potential customers to visit our support forums at the link below for information regarding the performance of these drive, including the systems and motherboards that they work quite well on.
Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsBetter Off In Portables.

Pros: Very Shock Resitant, Good for Notebooks and Portable Systems.

Cons: Slow as a flash drive on Steroids it was desproven on and a few other sites that these are faster.

Other Thoughts: Was going to buy one for my Shuttle Barebone Kit but too slow and pricey.
