5 out of 5 eggsread before you buy

Pros: First of all this thing is fast... Press power on my computer then press power on my monitor and then it's already loaded maybe 10 seconds total maybe.

Cons: This is not a ssd that you just plug an play this takes compatibility with other parts of the system and reading forums and making sure everything is set up before you buy. Not really a con but for those of you giving one egg it's just because you didn't read enough and just thought you could buy a product without knowing anything about it

Other Thoughts: Just read up on the forums and ask somebody.... If your scared to buy from newegg buy from a local computer store most of them have policies where if it doesn't work you can just turn it back in... And if it does work turn it back in anyways and buy from newegg for cheaper but you can't turn this item back into newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked well for a While

Pros: Fast, Silent

Cons: Extremely and Overly Expensive - as it turns out !!

Other Thoughts: I found the device easy to install without annoyance. I used as primary boot device. Windows rating went from 5.9 with WD Raptor to 7.9 with the IBIS. Unfortunately, after one year of use, the IBIS began to frequently be unavailable - like op system can't be found so can't boot. This happened more frequently over a two week period and then the thing just died completely. I removed the IBIS and found that the solder dropplets had disengaged on the power connector. Very delicate. Not sure if that is why the unit died but I really doubt whether OCZ will stand behind their 3 year warranty in this case. A really awful return on investment. One year use for nearly $700. Definitely not worth it. I'm buying now a Corsair Force - comparable speed for 1/2 the price.

1 out of 5 eggsBUYER BEWARE

Pros: I wish I could say speed was a pro but comparing to others I can not say this.

Cons: You can not put into an additional raid 0 from the internal raid 0. if you buy two Ibis' every system only sees 1 in raid utility. doesn't come with manual. not everything is clear before purchase. buyer beware, it is not RMA capable. if you buy to try, then you're left high and dry.

Other Thoughts: gimmick. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you have experienced difficulties. Since this product is specialized and it already includes RAID 0 on-board, we encourage customers to visit our support forums for additional application information. Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsIBIS Drive - eVGA Classified

Pros: Worked 1st time. 750MB speeds. Went to the web site, downloaded the driver, and done. Using in Win 7 x64 on eVGA Classified X3 M/B.

Cons: Seems to be very picky about M/B supported. Everything I have read has been about Option ROM space, that OCZ doesn't have direct ownership of the driver, and similar.

Other Thoughts: Am finding that I simply had blind luck, in that it worked for my eVGA classified M/B. And I was still able to use the on board M/B RAID for four 2TB drives. Am finding it is not supported for my SR-2 M/B which just seems to be a crying shame, but equally eVGA's fault as it is OCZ.

1 out of 5 eggsdon't waste your money

Pros: very fast drive when it works

Cons: I have Asus Rampage III extreme motherboard and I had some memory size issues with the Silicon Image drivers. I had to disable the onboard 6G Sata drivers to make room for the SDD drivers. Finally I was able to load the drivers and install windows 7 without any issue. Very fast!
After many months running flawlessly, the drive stopped working and I lost all my OS. Now the drive is defective since it is no longer accessible by windows.
Called tech support and they told me to file a ticket online so they can issue a RMA. it is over a week now and the interaction is via a simple one liner emails with stupid questions. it seems like they don't even read the responses I give them since they ask the same question and suggest the same useless suggestions over and over again.
I am unable to bring my PC back to life until I get this drive fixed. at this point, I am going to switch back to old fashioned hard drive and never buy another product from OCZ since their warranty is a scam!

Other Thoughts: perhaps try another brand and may have better luck

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we aplogize for the difficulties. Please call our support manager at (408) 733-8400, ext 206. We want every customer to be happy with their purchase, and we will be happy to assist you. Thank you

5 out of 5 eggs6gb/3gb< this HSDL

Pros: Who would care for mobo's speed interface on HDD if you can just plug it to the PCI-e?

This just beats the whole point of companies who add crazy stuff to their motherboards...and i say good job for that!

Cons: price is a thing to keep in mind...really makes my wallet cry.

Other Thoughts: Get it...well worth it...better than any other SSD out there

4 out of 5 eggsFast beyond comparison

Pros: It is fast, as in... "I needed to do a reboot, but don't remember it rebooting" With some tweaking, I can do a complete reboot, including typing a password over 10 digits, waiting for a DHCP address, and am back on the network in 37 seconds. Files above 64KB write at 650MB/sec, larger files benchmark at over 700MB/sec. I have it as the boot drive.

Cons: Installation went smooth, but I did a weeks work of work reading up and making sure the equipment I ordered was compatible, and a few days reading the OCZ forums hoping I was doing everything possible to get it right the first time. Required a motherboard beta BIOS for a MSI 890FXA-GD70 (version 185) motherboard that I had to get from OCZ - MSI support is not aware of this bios release.
I'm not supposed to mention references to installation techniques not included with product documentation, but the truth is there isn't any real documentation included.
No Linux support, but I knew that before I bought it, and I didn't buy it for a Linux system. The OCZ Vertex drives have Linux support.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't use this on a mission critical computer, one of my coworkers is going to get the system - lucky son of a blank. I purchased it for a system that has a database on it that was suffering from very long disk write delays.
Most people complain about the cost, but I would have gone with the more expensive, not quite as fast, but hopefully more reliable Vertex II Pro. I've probably blown my budget, not sure what I am going to do. I'm writing this as if I have had some problems, but I haven't, I'm just a bit paranoid about the beta MB bios in a situation where I can't afford to have the system fail.
What I would to hear is there is a pair of Sandforce based SSD's in a RAID 1 configuration.

1 out of 5 eggsRun away, run away, run away...

Pros: Nice box. That's it. Nuthin' else. Pass on this one fast and keep movin'. My experience with their B.S. support has cinched for me that I will never buy anything from OCZ again. This build's gonna finish over 15 grand so screw them. Their loss. And before they offer their typical "sorry, contact our..." insincere act to try and sucker people into buying more of their junk, let me warn you. This thing (and their similarly controller equipped Revo drives) has issues on more boards than not. There are reports of folks actually getting it to work, but as an SR-2 Classified builder I can't say enough bad things about this product and their lack of anything remotely smelling like real support. This junk goes back and a new RAID array will replace it...with none of the headaches and wasted time. Hey OCZ; don't sell half engineered junk and then expect people to waste hours and days out of their lives to help you make a profit where you should have been investing in debugging your junk ala M.S

Cons: Too many negatives to really cover adequately. Documentation = sucks hard, non-existent and unconscionable for hardware at this price point.
Support = SUCKS much harder! After spending this kind'a dough being told to go root around their forums for help 1st is asinine. Numerous calls to tech support got me a waste of three days of my life and the lamest excuses I've ever heard. The last, after waiting a week to be escalated past the phone operators to an actual engineer...well they "aren't real forth coming, but they told me that you're product is currently just having issues that they'll be looking at". When, I ask? "I have no idea" says they. The "engineer" never would get on the phone (if there even is one). Some of the suggested work arounds are just ridiculous. Even more so because none of them work. If they are worth me wasting my time on why the hell didn't they test this junk out before hand? If you're going to sell poorly supported Beta crud how about a warning!?

Other Thoughts: I expect a few issues with new tech but these guys are just jerks. Blowin' me off, running me through all kinds of stupid "hey let's try this" blind dart throwing problem resolution is insulting. Especially after posting all of my build specs, as they direct on their "Support" forum and then being told that their tech support phone guys and the on-line effort don't have anything to do with each other and don't interact. The phone guys actually went on-line, read the same idiot crud that I did, had me do all of it again, and presto...same results, no fix.1st it's the holiday, then there are meetings, then another holiday, then a trade show...short of my dog ate it I heard 'em all but still no resolution. The final spit in the face was without a doubt the best. After wasting days and days screwing around with their forum knuckleheads and being told that my problem was being escalated over the phone I got the big brush off: "we're going to be looking at it sometime in the future". Blow me

3 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: Its fast
Bleeding edge

Cons: Confusing installation
Cable doesnt "lock" into drive or card
SATA connector on SSD interface flimsy and loose

Other Thoughts: I dont know...let me start out by saying I dont know much about hard drives.

If you never had used an SSD, I can see why you would be enthusiastic about this one, it is faster at loading software, but I found that the drive boots to windows slower than my other SSD. its still faster than a normal HDD, but still, I expected at least the same. Ran HDtune and the speed is all over the place. its not a straight line..
I did spend some time installing it, the drivers are compressed several times in folders, so you have to uncompress the folders to get to the drivers in order to have the OS find them prior to installation/formatting. Also, I did have to switch PCI slots in order for it to recognize the drive.

Not really OCZs fault, more of a reply to the previous reviewer who can get seem to get it to work

I think its cool to have, but in hindsight, I probably would just buy Intel SSD's and save a few dollars.
