Petrol's proprietary page mapping algorithms ensure superior performance across all file sizes and mixed workloads. The Petrol 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. This enhances application responsiveness and enables features such as "fast boot" in consumer applications.

5 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: speeds are good

Cons: This SSD's is the worst, go buy a mushkin enhanced instead, it will save you a LOT of trouble, I had to format my PC a couple of times since it just won't power on for no reason, then a couple weeks later it decides to work... firmware updates did not solve the problem. seriously STAY AWAY!

1 out of 5 eggs128GB SATA III SSD

Pros: Worked for thirty days!

Cons: I would not recommend OCZ to my worst enemy. I received this hard drive in the mail and installed it in my machine after ensuring that my drivers, and my firmware was up to date. I also made sure to check with the manufacturer's manual to see if my machine would work with this SSD. After installing the SSD and my operating system the drive worked flawlessly for 30 days. During my 31st day of ownership my machine gave me the all too common error of not booting. Of course the SSD was out of return policy so I had to go through the manufacturer. After they determined that the drive was bad they sent me a second after charging me shipping and handling. All told i've spent approximately $200.00 dollars attempting to get this drive to work. Even after the replacement "upgrade" they sent me the drive crapped out after a period of a few hours. I've worked with computers my whole life, have a bachelors degree in computer science, and work as a computer repair technician. Don't buy this drive. This review is a bit overdue however, don't waste your money, go with something else.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: None

Cons: Only worked for about 3 weeks then it would no longer boot up. I tried it on two different computers and the same thing. It just quit. Have another SSD from another company and two years later it still runs perfect. So this one was a complete waste of money. Also no warranty so I really lost out.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Erwin,

2 out of 5 eggsReplaced twice, dead again

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Fast when it works

Cons: It stops working after about 36 hours

Other Thoughts: I have made the mistake of reinstalling my operating system 3 times on this drive. The last 2 times that I had the problem of losing everything I discovered that it was because the drive quits after a day and a half or so. After the drive quits working I have to remove it for a day and then plug it back in. After that I'm good for another day and a half. My case has four 120mm cooling fans, including one that blows directly on this drive. I'm hoping that the drive comes around again. If it does I'm going to empty one of my storage drives and configure it to use for my operating system and ditch this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsRMAed with success

Pros: Updated:

The RMA process was painless, I shipped them the bad drive, they shipped me the new drive.

Submitted Support Ticket: 8/14/2012
Had RMA return information and case number 8/15/2012
Shipped the Drive to OCZ 8/16/2012
It arrived there 8/23/2012
The new drive arrived here 8/28/2012

As they no longer make the Petrol 128, I was sent an upgrade.

The standard RMA system at OCZ has very poor communication, but once I posted that the drive had died and I was returning it for RMA in the feedback section of NewEgg, I was assigned a personal customer support agent, Steven Cheng. Steven was willing to take all of my calls, responded promptly to all of my emails, he really made me feel like I had a friend at the company.

I hope that OCZ changes their RMA policy so that Steven has to work every case personally (I don't know that he doesn't)

Cons: Drive dead at 9 months
