5 out of 5 eggsNO problem so far

Pros: I've had the SSD for almost 2 months and no problems. Boot and program loads are quick compared to WD Raptor 300Gb.

Cons: I wish the 250 Gb were cheaper so I would have invested in that drive compared to 120Gb

Other Thoughts: Looks like they are starting to come down.

1 out of 5 eggsNot so Colossus

Pros: None

Cons: This drive came with no instructions. When I first called tech. support I was told that the drive was plug and play. It is not. I found installation instructions on their website. They could not have been tested with WinXP because they don't work. Ultimately got WinXP on the drive.It was very slow and caused an intermittent Blue Screen of Death. I am awaiting feedback and resolution fro OCZtech.

Other Thoughts: Products that are unsuited for published use should not have a no refund policy.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry for the difficulties. Our support staff will be glad to assist you with troubleshooting and settings, and will help you with a replacement drive if required.
Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Has high performance ratings, claims higher than most home RAID 0 physical arrays are capable of

Cons: Dead drive

Other Thoughts: Was unable to get past step one due to the drive arriving dead. After playing with it for 5 hours did more I intensive research and I have decided i will take the 15% hit and get my refund.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the problem. We will be happy to assist with troubleshooting on our support forums at the link below. If your drive is verified as defective, a replacement drive will resolve this. Please visit the link below and post in the SSD section for assistance.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast Drive!

Pros: This drive is very fast! I replaced two 74GB Raptors in Raid 0 with this drive. Windows is fully loaded and usable within 5 seconds of typing in my log-in password. Games like Left for Dead 2 and FarCry load at least 3 times faster. Most programs open almost instantly and switching between programs is way faster than with the Raptors. Very easy to install/setup. I've never seen Windows install so fast!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you disable defrag in Windows, since SSD's don't need to be defragged.
On a side note: I ran HD Tune to see what the speed of this drive would be... Minimum transfer rate was 187Mb/sec and Maximum (which it maintained most of the time) was 210Mb/sec.

4 out of 5 eggsSomething you should know

Pros: Very fast, cool, and silent.

Cons: Price, few issues installing, wouldn't run in AHCI may be my motherboard.

Other Thoughts: once I got my motherboard to treat it like a regular IDE, it worked fine. Installed Win7 in 16min was installing games in 20min.

5 out of 5 eggsOCZ Colossus SSD 120 gig

Pros: This drive smokes, I had a 15k 320lvd SCSI drive as me C: drive before and let me tell you this drive is 4 times faster. This drive is totally silent, I didnt really think too much about that when I got it, but compared to SCSI when you defraging no annoying seeking noises from the drive. The drive doesnt boot as fast into windows as I thought but opening programs WOW Photoshop CS3 in about 1.5 sec, vs maybe 8-10 sec before. I use the computer for music recording opening plugins inside of Cubase is instantaneous. Totally worth $500. Putting this drive in your computer is the equivalent of getting a new Motherboard cpu and memory when you do a computer upgrade like I do every 2 years.

Cons: I got the 120 gig one, and the first drive I got showed up as 60 gigs. I went on OCZ's forum and this is a common problem with these drives (250 showing 120, and the 120 showing 60). The 2nd drive I got showed 120 and is working fine. So when you get this you may have to send it back for a 2nd or 3rd drive but its worth the hassle when you have a working one.

Other Thoughts: If you into computers and always want the best stuff than this drive is for you. When you think about the $500 price tag, and compare it to what you paid for your SCSI card and 15k drive it is about the same. So all in all $500 is not too bad for this speed. I cant wait until the colossus 1tb's come down in price I will be buying a few of those to replace my Seagate's.

5 out of 5 eggsVERY fast

Pros: This is a very fast drive. Typical results for a 7200 RPM SATA 3Gb/s on hdparm are around 80-90 MB/s. This drive consistently yields results in excess of 190 MB/s and the access times are very quick.

From BIOS Post to waiting at the desktop in Fedora 12 takes approximately 4 seconds with this drive.

Cons: The price dropped about $70 just 1-2 days after I purchased.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy again provided the budget can cover it in future builds. I'm very satisfied with this drive on the work computer I just built, but I'd probably wait until the price drops some more before I buy one for my personal computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGlad I Got It

Pros: I work on 3D character creation and I needed something that would load my Runtimes quickly; this works. It loaded Windows 7, no problem. It holds the OS, CS4 Master Collection, Vue xStream, Poser Pro, 3D Studio Max and is currently holding the Runtimes, too. I used selected tweaks from the OCZ website forum for W7 and all is well. Windows 7, of course, loads in a snap. I'm very happy I made this purchase.

Cons: The price is still high; I remember buying the high end non-SSD hard drives back in the day and watching the price fall considerably over a couple of years. Oh well...

Other Thoughts: I still have Runtimes on older hard drives. I'd like to get those and my current Runtimes on and OCZ but I can't afford to buy the other, larger OCZ SSD 3.5" ...so I'm just waiting until OCZ offers a substantial discount/rebate or something.
