2 out of 5 eggsfollow up

Pros: Fast

Cons: died faster, thanks newegg for the $$ refund

Other Thoughts: Went to Other World Computing (google it) picked up a 200G drive for less $$. Same Sandforce 1200 controller so it's just as fast, and it comes with a 5 year warranty. The OWC drive has a lower wattage for those looking for a laptop upgrade. TRIM support too. So far so good, the drive rocks!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry that you had problems. We would have been happy to assist you with troubleshooting and a replacement drive if required, on our support forums at the link below.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable but fast

Pros: Screaming fast load times, excellent responsiveness. You can tell this drive is pushing out 270MB/s read times.

Cons: It died after three weeks. My computer was coming out of sleep mode, it hung up, restarted, and now it's not recognized by the BIOS. Cleared CMOS

Other Thoughts: SSD's theoretically should have better data security because of no moving parts and low voltages... but this pretty much proves that nothing is safe. Back up your data and just plan on reinstalling if you buy this drive.

1 out of 5 eggsFailure #3 - Dead Drive

Pros: Fast when it's working

Cons: I have purchased 2 of these drives, and as of today have already had 3 Failures! I have returned this drive to OCZ 2 times already and have patiently waited approximately 10 days each time through their RMA process to have these replaced. The newest drive I purchased from Newegg only 10 days ago and today failed. The drive is no longer recognized by the BIOS during the boot process, so there is nothing I can do with it except return it.

Other Thoughts: This drive is not ready to be used by consumers. There is obviously a problem with some component that has not been properly tested. At least I learned to keep backup copies current after my first failure, but it's very frustrating not to be able to keep one running longer.

1 out of 5 eggsFAILURE x3 (Continued)

Pros: The dives will be great after the bugs get worked out.

Cons: Drive failure; Drive failure; and Drive failure

Other Thoughts: The drives were tested on several other systems and the computer that I'm typing this review on is the same system that the drives bombed out on. Static precautions were followed. My level of expertise is high. I was a Value added reseller for a major computer company for a number of years. I truly hope they get this issue solved. I have enough confidence in OCZ to try it again, just maybe not for awhile.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the problem. Overall we have a good reliability record with this product. A replacement drive will take care of this for you, so please RMA with Newegg, or visit the link below and create a support ticket to get in touch with our support staff.

1 out of 5 eggsFAILURE x3

Pros: When and if it works, it is a extremely fast drive. Great responsiveness if the base system is reasonable.

Cons: Three (3) failed drives in two weeks; No support response from OCZ for days when I received an acknowledgment that they received the support request and its been two weeks with no further action on their part.
Drive 1- Installed for one (1) day [ Installed OS and many programs worked great ] when it completely died after a day. Bios would not recognize it. I submitted a support request to OCZ.
Drive 2 - Newegg replaced the drive a couple of days later. I received a response from OCZ that the had received my support request at approximately the same time. I installed the OS and user programs. Same thing: drive dead after one (1) day. No further response from OCZ.
Drive 3 - Another new drive from Newegg again. I installed the OS only this time [ May as well as some time ;-) ] This one did not die completely. It just reverted to a clean state when the system was powered down. No OS; No partitions..... At least the BIOS saw the drive..... Got to try and find something positive in this :

Other Thoughts: I really wish it was different. I have a lot of respect for OCZ. Newegg has been great thru the trials and tribulations of the fiasco. I cannot believe that they have not pulled these drives until they figure out where the manufacturing problem is or at least made a good faith effort to follow up on support requests. I really had not intended to write a review until I saw Manufactures Response to the last post. OCZ is generally a pretty good company. Maybe they are just overwhelmed by the issue with these drives. Anyway I hope they get it fixed (See Pros)

1 out of 5 eggsFAILURE

Pros: Lightning fast and enough storage space not to worry about juggling your OS and applications on separate drives. I bought this drive the first day it came out because of the speeds it has. 3 year warranty

Cons: The drive failed almost exactly 1 month after I bought it. some review site mentioned that their "sample" Vertex PRO 2 did the same thing. this is now a trend. STAY AWAY. RMA time -_- [lost OS drive w/o back up Q_Q]. The price of this drive does not reflect quality.

Other Thoughts: If you want to get an SSD grab a SATA 3.0 drive. Even if you don't have SATA 3.0 it will still work w/ 2.0 and when you upgrade to 3.0 you'll already have a SSD to mate w/ it.
Didn't know at the time that a SATA 3.0 drive would overcome this drive just 2 weeks later. Should have returned it the day I got it.

5 out of 5 eggsSSD's Bricking

Pros: In addition to restarting the Mac using the power button and setting the indicated Energy Preferences "Put hard disk to sleep when possible" to Unchecked, if one is using Smart Sleep it should be set to Hibernate.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Vendors appear to be working on a better fix to SSD sleep problems.

1 out of 5 eggsFast, unreliable

Pros: Fast. Can return for refund.

Cons: Dead after 6 days. BIOS won't detect it on any port. Wasted a lot of time getting an install up and running, only to have the drive fail.

Other Thoughts: worked great for a number of days. no warning of failure. Newegg customer service is fast and hastle free!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the problem. Please RMA with Newegg for a replacement drive. You should have no further issues. If we can be of any help, please visit our support forums at the link below.

5 out of 5 eggs"Fixing Bricked SSD's"

Pros: On Mac's where SSD's appear to be "Bricked" when the laptop goes to sleep can be fixed by restarting the computer with the power button depressed until restart occurs and going to System Preferences>Energy Saver and unchecking or if necessary toggling "Put hard drive to sleep when possible" to unchecked. This should be done in both the Battery and Power Adapter panes. Another fix is to plug in a usb mouse where upon the powerbook should awaken, putting the powerbook back to sleep and unplugging the mouse. The computer then will work normally.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Doubled the performance of MacBook
