OCZ Octane OCT1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III 2Xnm Synchronous Mode Multi-Level Cell (MLC) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

ICON Loading...

Combining high-speed data transfer rates with record-breaking access times, OCZ Octane SSDs are designed to provide a superior user experience and improved application performance. Octane leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform and is optimized for the complete spectrum of file types and sizes, with proprietary page mapping algorithms mirroring real world conditions across a wide range of applications. 

The Octane series also includes advanced features unique to Indilinx, including latency reduction technology to enhance system responsiveness and enable instant-on boot-ups, and proprietary NDurance technology to increase the lifespan of the NAND flash memory and minimize performance degradation. In addition, Octane drives support AES and automatic encryption to secure critical data, bringing unique enterprise features within the reach of enthusiasts. Octane SSDs also deliver the energy efficiency, durability, and reliability that traditional hard drives cannot provide.

  • newegg High performance SSD architecture The Octane series leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform, which combines a dual-core CPU, SATA 6Gbps interface, and support for the latest, most advanced NAND flash memory technology available. It delivers faster performance with compressed data such as MP3, JPG, RAW, PSD and OS X software, and strong performance at low queue depths (QD 1 – 3). The Octane's proprietary page mapping algorithms ensure superior performance across all file sizes and mixed workloads. The Octane series also includes a number of advanced features unique to Indilinx, including innovative latency reduction technology, enabling both read and write access times as low as 0.06ms and 0.09ms respectively, the lowest of any commercially available SSD. This enhances application responsiveness and enables features such as "fast boot" in consumer applications.
  • newegg Enhanced performance and endurance over the long term Octane SSDs come equipped with Indilinx's proprietary NDurance technology, increasing the lifespan of the NAND flash memory, ensuring the most consistent and reliable performance as well as minimizing performance degradation even after the drive's storage capacity is highly utilized. Efficient NAND Flash management including dynamic and static wear-leveling, and background garbage collection ensures close to ‘fresh-out-of-the-box’ performance even after continual use. In addition, Octane series drives support AES and automatic encryption to secure critical data.
  • newegg TRIM SUPPORT The Octane SSDs feature support for the Windows 7 TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.

1 out of 5 eggsLasted less than a day

Pros: When it was working, the speed difference in boot time and program loading was phenomenal. Didn't work long enough for me to evaluate any other pros such as laptop battery life and temperature.

Cons: Worked for less than a day and then became unusable - not recognized by the BIOS, OS or OCZ's toolbox. Before I installed it I updated the firmware and the drive disappeared; I had to disconnect the power from my laptop before it was recognized again.

Other Thoughts: Newegg states "Limited Replacement Only Return Policy" when it's in your cart (which I didn't see) but on this page (review) it states "Standard Return Policy". To make it more confusing the "Limited Replacement Only Return Policy" in this case turns out to be a "No Replacement, No Return Policy" - you have to RMA it through OCZ. I just bought a 500 GB Crucial M4 SSD elsewhere (can't believe it won't let me put their name in there) - they will replace it or give me a refund if there's a problem so, needless to say, I won't be buying anything from Newegg again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, great price, zero problems

Pros: -Easy installation on MAC OS X
-Worked fine out of box without problems
-Incredible performance enhancements
-Indilinx controller has posed zero problems
-OCZ owns indilinx so firmware updates are fast vs. drives where you wait on 3rd party
-Great value for price
-No bugs so far unlike drives with SandForce controllers

Cons: The only con would be the OCZ Vertex is a bit better value, but I'm betting on the flexibility of future firmware updates with Indilinx vs. waiting on 3rd party updates. Each person can make their own choice, but SSDs with in-house controllers are the best way to future proof your investment.

Other Thoughts: This is easily the best upgrade you can make to your computer. The 256GB is an ideal size / price upgrade. Yes it's $400, but for $400 you'll get what is essentially a brand new computer. Not bad. OSX Lion reload from start to finish in less than 20 minutes. Boot times are around 10 seconds. Wakeup from hibernation is nearly instant. This was a great decision.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Fast and Flawless Install

Pros: Blazing fast!! I am using it on my laptop with a SATA 3 compatible motherboard so I am not even seeing the full speed.

It cut my boot time from 56.53 seconds down to 21.58 seconds (averaged across five boots with a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Alpha, the daily build from Christmas). It shipped with the latest firmware, and works flawlessly. My average read rate is 281 Mb/s (Can't wait to put in a laptop with SATA 6)!

Cons: Price will empty your wallet, but is well worth it

Other Thoughts: Great Christmas present.
Works flawless on Dell 14z Studio with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Alpha.
