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 exclusive 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 eggsI will not buy another OCZ or Toshiba product again.

Pros: It worked for a short period of time.

Cons: I bought the drive 3/20/2012 had to RMA it a few months later, received a replacement but I had already installed a different brand in my computer. I opened up the replacement a few month later and it worked for a few months then died again. Now they will not warranty it even though the original date of purchase was less than two rears ago and it came with a three year warranty.

Other Thoughts: Toshiba bought out OCZ Storage Solutions and is still selling drives under the OCZ name but will not warranty the drives before the took over. This is the response I received from OCZ: Due to the recent acquisition of OCZ Storage Solutions by Toshiba, we can no longer offer support for some older products. Unfortunately in this case we are unable to issue an RMA or authorize a warranty claim. We will not be able to replace this product under warranty.

3 out of 5 eggsDidn't last long

Pros: I'm sure it would have been great if it lasted. It was fast.

Cons: This died quickly. OCZ support was helpful and replaced this with an OCZ 4 and it has lasted a year without issues. Pay the extra money for better quality.

Other Thoughts: Everyone has DOA parts from time to time. OCZ took a little time to get me a replacement but i was in no hurry. To my surprise it was replaced with a Vertex 4. Good job OCZ. I'm happy. OCZ as a company gets 5 stars, This drive does not.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Service and Support

Pros: Good Customer Service and Support, and painless RMA Process. I worked with Steven Cheng from OCZ support. Very suprised that I got personal attention, and even a couple phone calls from him to make sure the process whent smoothly. Got my drives replaced quickly, and with out "...did you try this....." dumb questions. 5 eggs for service, 1 egg for the product initially, but 5 eggs for thier updated firmware and replacement drives, averages out to 4 eggs now.

Cons: As you can see from all the bad reviews, there must have been issues, or a 'bad batch' of drives. But I think they got those issues resolved with updated firmware.

Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd review. First review, gave 1 egg because 2 out of 3 drives went bad after a few months. But after getting replacement drives, easily and painlessly, and using thier updated firmware on other and new drives, I felt I had to give another better review.

3 out of 5 eggsOCZ customer support

Pros: I made a review on 8/9/2012, stating that i had issues with the customer support. Well I went ahead and submitted my RMA again finally. they get a couple more eggs because this time around they really took care of me. albeit they gave me options for 2 different drives still at 120gb, they were way more responsive this time around. i had "Jeff T." emailing me being very courteous, knowledgeable, and friendly. I think the first run around i may have dealt with a guy not having a good day or something. I should have asked him which drives have a less return rate, but from judging the reviews here, i think my replacement drive will be worth it. i would have been content if the original drive just worked in the bloody first place.

Cons: -1 egg for the original bad product
-1 egg for the first bad customer experience

Other Thoughts: i try to rate the whole experience, not just the product. if i rated JUST the product, i would have to give the lowest possible score. this first Octane SSD was more of a test bed to get the bugs out for the latest Octane build which is a better drive from what i can tell. pay the extra cash and get the Sata III Octane (orange package) if you really dont trust the sandforce controllers. nice thing is with the newer one is it doesnt degrade like traditional SSD's do on performance due to the controller. if you search "Ndurance Technology" you can read about it, minimizing write amplification and increasing longevity.

2 out of 5 eggsDissapointed...

Pros: Quite fast and quite a low price for 128 GB.
Rated 7.3 on WEI.

Cons: I owned his SSD for a day before it died on me. I only had around 24 successful boots until it couldn't read Windows, BIOS went directly to the DVD Drive. So, I thought I'd re-install Windows but at the start of the installation, got an error where Windows cannot make a partition of the drive.

I recommend going for one of the other brands if you're looking for an 128GB SSD.

Manufacturer Response:

We aplogize for the problem. Before contacting Newegg for a fast RMA, please visit our support forums at the link below for assistance with troubleshooting and testing. We would like to try to get running and avoid the hassle of the RMA. We care about our customers and are here to help. Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate: OZC makes it right

Pros: OCZ has a decent customer care center

Cons: Drive failed in 3 months. Look at the reviews, you do not want to buy this product.

Other Thoughts: As noted above the CCC at OCZ made it right for me. I emailed their support team who helped get an RMA submitted directly with OCZ (since this failed after the 30 window Newegg offers). They sent me a OCZ-VERTEX3 - slightly smaller at 120GB but a bit faster and the promise of better reliability.

I'm pleased they admitted the drive was faulty and sent me a different model as a replacement.

Manufacturer Response:

We aplogize for the problem, and are very happy that our staff was able to satisfy your needs. We care about our customers and are here to help. Thank you
