1 out of 5 eggsFast but dying out of the box

Pros: SSD are fast. OCZ had more GB/$ than Intel at the time of purchase.

Cons: I experienced problems right away. Since it was in a new laptop I assumed it was a bios or driver issue (perhaps some issues were). 6 months into ownership and having had the laptop replaced and multiple reinstalls, my screen goes blank or freezes and must be rebooted. Upon start up windows 7 states it has recovered from blue screen error.

The frequency of this phenomenon has increased from 0nce or twice a week 6 months ago to several times a day. It generally occurs when recovering from sleep or opening files.

Other Thoughts: I rate one star because the customer service is slow to respond and once replying sends vague emails complete with spelling errors stating to return to a shipping center that they can diagnose w/ no promise of a return date. No tech support is offered to help diagnose if in fact the drive should be replaced. Given the large inconvenience of having to transfer programs and files; I would appreciate a replacement sent out so I can transfer directly rather than being w/o a HD for weeks-months.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry for the problem. We care about our customers, and want your experience to be the best possible. Please call our support manager at (800)459-1816 ext 206 for assistance.
Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsFast but its not that fast

Pros: solid states are the bomb, its fast, cuts boot time in half suspend and resume on 2008 white 13" Macbook is instant. Applications and the OS are "peppy"

Cons: white drive specs state up to 220 read and 130 write, real world tests on Xbench give these results. (far from the stated specs) more like 1/3rd those specs, and this is FRESH in the box running OSX 10.6.3

Other Thoughts: While its fast, its no Vertex or Agility series for that matter, but its cheaper than both, 300 bux with the rebate, got mine for 280 not bad for a SSD, now keep in mind these are state of the art technology, so its a premium price. if you want to make the jump to SSD this is a good solid drive (hence its name i take it) it performs well, there is no heat, noise, and my battery life has jumped through the roof. however If i had to do this again, I would have spent the extra hundred bux and got a Vertex.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great. Highly recommend.

Pros: A great bargain compared to other drives in it's class especially with the rebate tossed. Drive performs flawlessly. The 1.5 firmware has both TRIM and Garbage Collection, so you have the best of both worlds. This makes the drive a easy to just install and use. Though in benchmarks it's not as fast as a Vertex, in real world test you won't even notice.

Cons: Doesn't come with any 3.5 brackets.
Though it's still a bargain, the price for SSDs are still much higher than HDDs. Hopefully that will change soon.

Other Thoughts: Definitely a great drive to get.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: Great drive fast.
Installed W7U, Office2K7, a few games and still have 70GB free. 120 GB is nice for OS and apps you want to run quickly.

Cons: Pricey but SSD is are just getting cheaper and cheaper.

Other Thoughts: While bigger faster drives are always coming. I think this price and this size was worth pulling the trigger on. You can always wait for the next thing, but you need to factor in those months of use before that big expensive thing comes out.

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: Very very fast. Installed Ubuntu 9.10 on mine, and it boots in 5 seconds. Shutdowns take about 1 second from hitting the button. All applications open almost instantly. Game level loading is so quick!

Cons: A bit expensive, but its new technology, and this is one of the best values of current SSDs.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Five!!

Pros: Bought this for i5 laptop - already own 1 160gb X25m in i7 desktop, and 2x80gb X25m's RAID0 in another i7 desktop.
This is probably the best bang for your buck, especially when Newegg had it for $270 after MIR. I ran Crystal Disk Mark on my 320GB Seagate Momentus before I popped in the 120GB Solid 2 and installed Win7Ultx64.

These benches where performed in a laptop - this drive is a tad bit faster on a desktop platform.

Seagate 320GB Momentus:
Seq--- 51.08 - 50.49
512k-- 23.92 - 28.98
4k----- 0.325 - 0.938

OCZ 120GB Solid 2
Seq--- 236.6 - 167.9
512k-- 172.7 - 138.5
4k----- 19.54 - 10.46

Write times are great for a single SSD, sturdy housing, was plug and play, OCZ support and forums are excellent, OCZ Garbage Collection works with this drive, shipped with FW: 1.5.

Cons: The package UPS delivery looked like it had been punted. The drive was wrapped a few times in bubble wrap and seemed to be secure. No damage was done to components.

Other Thoughts: Very good solution for a laptop drive, even a desktop drive, as of right noe argulably the best value SSD in terms of size/speed - Solid 2 series = Higher Capacities are faster than lower capacities.

5 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: Works well with windows 7. Makes my laptop run pretty quick now. I was initially disappointed with the i-7 and 4gb 1333mhz ram with the stock HDD but now its a very fast machine. BTW Linux is stupid fast- click and the program or file is open

Cons: Volatile pricing

Other Thoughts: Past ocz gens had complaints and reviews required research. This was just plug in and go for me

5 out of 5 eggsSWEET!

Pros: FAST!! I have not run any benchmarks yet but my windows experience index score went from a 5.9 (WD scorpio black 7200 rpm) to a 7.4. Applications fly open, boots in 25 seconds.

Cons: Missed the rebate by 2 days but oh well.

Other Thoughts: It only took 1/2 an hour for Acronis True Image to clone my drive. Windows 7 ssd optimization is very helpful.

1 out of 5 eggsAnnoyed

Pros: Well I ordered this on 1/30. In order to get the $30 rebate I have to return it and the free SD card (which I don't want anyways). They shipped the items separately so I'm out return shipping on both if I return. I'll give 1/5 for OCZ not honoring purchases prior to 2/1/10.

Cons: bad reputation compared to Intel SSDs

Other Thoughts: Impulse buy. When I return I'll probably just get an Intel at this point since I'm waiting anyways

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you do not qualify for a rebate. You purchased this product when we were offering a free SD card, but not a cash rebate. Rebates are always set with a start date, and expiration date, and can be offered at any time.
Thank you
