Combining fast data transfer rates with instantaneous access times, OCZ Octane S2 SSDs are designed to provide improved application performance for SATA 3Gbps systems. Octane S2 leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform and is optimized for the complete spectrum of file types and sizes, with exclusive page mapping algorithms mirroring real world conditions across a wide range of applications. The Octane S2 also includes advanced features unique to Indilinx, including latency reduction technology to enhance system responsiveness and enable instant-on boot-ups. 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, a perfect choice for performance users and first-time SSD upgraders.

  • newegg High performance SSD architecture The Octane series leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform, which combines a dual-core CPU, SATA 3Gbps interface, and support for the latest, most advanced NAND flash memory technology available. 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 low access times for both read and write operation. 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 OCZ Octane Series SSDs offer native TRIM support that can be enabled in Windows 7. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor customer support from OCZ

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Files started getting corrupted after 4 months.

Other Thoughts: Wish I had gone with a different manufacturer. Very disappointed in the quality of OCZ's customer service.

They still have not sent replacement RMA a month and 6 days after receiving the defective item. The RMA Status says it is being replaced but The Replace Date is "Not Replaced Yet"

1 out of 5 eggsFollow up response to 2nd dead drive from manufacturer

Pros: None. I bought one drive, it failed. Got a replacement and it failed 7 weeks later. After contacting OCZ support, their response to me involves a tearing my system apart and spending over 4 hours (per their instructions) resetting the drive and doing up follow up integrity checks and then, when the drive fails that test - submit the results to OCZ and maybe, just maybe they'll actually replace this brick that currently can't even make it through a chkdsk scan. This is the second drive from their company that has failed, and feedback herein shows that I am not alone in that circumstance, it becomes a question of "Do I want to spend an afternoon fighting with this so I can show more proof that it's defective?" Seems like endless hurdles are thrown up to prevent a customer from actually receiving value from OCZ. I strongly advise any consumers to avoid this company and their spotty, defective products. Attached in the Cons & Other thoughts sections are some of the instructions I received.

Cons: After getting a 2nd dead drive and submitting a ticket to the OCZ website I received the following response (posted below).
Trouble Ticket ID: 296538
Description: OCZ Octane OCT1-25SAT2-64G 2.5" 64GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD

-------------------------------------------------------

Please be advised that the status on your trouble ticket
has been changed from Acknowledged to Waiting on Customer
with the following comment:
-------------------------------------------------------
Comment: I recommend resetting the drive, and then once the drive has been reset to then test the drive to ensure it is working properly. To do this use the toolbox utility to flash the firmware on the drive and then secure erase the drive. This is a destructive method and will require a full reinstall after it has been reset, but it will reset everything on the drive, including the drive’s controller. The same toolbox utility will also be able to reflash the drive.

Other Thoughts: In order for the toolbox to interact with the drive the drive needs to be connected to the computer internally. If there is anything between the drive and the motherboard that may interfere with the toolbox interacting with the drive. A raid controller or USB-SATA drive enclosure will prevent the toolbox from communicating with the drive as these may not allow the proper commands to pass through these other pieces of hardware.

After you have reset the drive you will need to create a new partition on the drive. This can be done within Windows using the disk management utility.


Then after the drive has been reset and a new partition created I recommend testing the drive for data integrity to see if there are any hardware faults on the drive.

A good way to test an SSD is to do an input/output comparison test on the drive while the SSD is being used as a secondary, non-booting type drive. This tests the drive by writing data to it, and then reading it back and verifying that the

1 out of 5 eggs0 for 2 so far.

Pros: Faster access times, lower power consumption

Cons: First one I received died in 3 weeks. RMA'd it and it's replacement lasted 7 weeks. I'm no officially out of RMA period and have to deal with OCZ on the slim chance of a third replacement. Having to serially tear my PC apart and do a reinstall hasn't been particularly fun.

Other Thoughts: Can't recommend the product at this point. Will post follow up feedback regarding how OCZ handles this issue now.

1 out of 5 eggsHave had two fail in a row. 2nd after 50 days - out of RMA.

Pros: Fast data transfer. OS installs take very little time. System boots up in no time.

Cons: First one failed in a few weeks, RMA'd it and got a replacement which has starting shutting off and freezing 52 days after installation. This puts me out of RMA and now I have to contact OCZ and see what they will do. Considering that I'm 0 for 2, I can't recommend this product in any way shape or form.

1 out of 5 eggsIncompatible with my laptop

Pros: It works if the stars are aligned correctly.

Cons: I have gone round and round with OCZ customer service. I tested the drive in a desktop and there is nothing wrong with it. I want to use it in my laptop, but something in a Microsoft update prevents it from running. Is that my fault? They want me to just use it in another computer. They are not forthcoming with a refund. OCZ just lost a customer for all their products.

Other Thoughts: I'll just keep the drive and figure out where to put it someday.

1 out of 5 eggsIt was great...while it lasted

Pros: It was fast until it died after 6 hours of use.

Cons: Dead.

Other Thoughts: My first SSD. I should have listened to the reviews. I can't believe this. Had Win7 all installed, then it failed in the middle of SP1 installation, rendered my Win7 ungenuine, then completely died. It was hotter than heck when I pulled it out. I hate RMA's

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Easy, Fast, and Fast

Pros: Fast, easy install. No problems with anything. simply works. Recognized in the BIOS and in windows instantly.

Cons: perhaps a bit small, 64gb, but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for an Acer laptop that is about two years old and made a world of difference in this computer, boots in 15 seconds!! Everything is faster. I will definitly be buying SSD drives from now on and probably from OCZ. I think I might buy more of these for all of my computers.
