2 out of 5 eggsFailed after 1 year.

Pros: It worked great while it worked. I had it for one year.

Cons: When it died, I contacted OCZ for support and the RMA policy on a refurb is only 6 months? To me, this makes no sense. Why would the RMA policy be 6 months on a refurb and 3 years on a new one? Sounds to me like you do not have any faith in your QA. I really liked OCZ until this. Oh well, I upgraded to a NEW "Competitor" 120 GB instead.

Other Thoughts: Warranty should be somewhat comparable from refurb to new...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little SSD

Pros: Bought a bunch of these on sale, looks like closeout, but hoping more come in stock as they have been great little drives.
I've been running a half dozen of these in medium - low usage in headless mining systems. Low power consumption and high speed read/write make it a great alternative to a spinning disc. Also noiseless, although the GPU fans drown out any system noises, lol.
Less heat is a plus and hopefully, like my other OCZ drives, these will be running as long at the systems do.

Five stars because they have exceeded my expectations.

Cons: None yet, have one that isn't recognized, but OCZ service has treated me well in the past. It's an accepted risk with refurbished for the discount.

Other Thoughts: No mounting hardware (not really a con, but a wish)

As with all SSD's, I wish they came with even a cheap cheesy 3.5" adapter bracket.
I wonder how many of these are hanging on my a single screw in a 3.5" bay...

4 out of 5 eggsStill Working

Pros: It was cheap and a refurb. Has worked for me with no problems so far, for about a year. I installed win 7 64 bit and a few boot up programs on it. Takes up most of the drive only 3 GB free but with i5 2500k runs my system fast. Went from about 5.4 with hdd to 7.2 win experince. Boots much faster.

Cons: Small drive. For a few dollars more I recommend a larger drive. Seems might be good for upgrading an older laptop where 30 gb might suffice. Since it is so small I have to install programs on the other HDD.

5 out of 5 eggsFANTASIC LITTLE DRIVE!

Pros: I love this thing. Bought another for my son I liked it so much. i read a lot of bad reviews and was hesitant but we've had ours for a year now. Our machines bot up and shut down twice as fast not to mention accessing files, etc.. One of the drives stopped working a while back and I thought it was fried. OCZ has EXCELLENT support as I already knew from emailing them in the past with RAM issues. I can't remember what the process was but got the ssd back up and running and that was many months ago and it's still running like a top! Now I know why they stuck an "I Love my SSD" sticker in the box lol! I can't say I miss always worry9ing about defragging either..........

Cons: None that I have ran across.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Piece of junk -- died within 2 months with very very little usage. This is my 3rd OCZ issue in a row, so will not ever be buying their products again.

1 out of 5 eggsPLEASE DO NOT BUY!!

Pros: Nothing! 7 of 8 drives do not work. Horrible. I also purchased several 3.5" OCZ Vertex SSD drives and I had 2 of those drives fail. STAY AWAY FROM OCZ!

Cons: Absolute nightmare. I purchased 8 of these and 7 of these hard drives have failed in customers' laptops after installation. That is the bad part. They worked for several days to weeks and then... NOTHING. No activity whatsoever. I have lost time and money having to explain to various customers why their SSD drive with all their recent pictures and files no longer works. Do yourself a favor and do not even consider trying these SSD drives. If these were $1 I would not buy! Spend a little more and buy a better brand.

Other Thoughts: I purchased these for $60 each. Not bad for an SSD and these were put into laptops for customers who wanted the SSD technology without spending $200+. With 30GB there is only so much you can store but though this would be a great solution for a netbook or Dell Latitude Laptops running XP. The problem is that these OCZ drives are garbage. I wish they would have all arrived DOA so then I wouldn't have wasted my time and money having to refund or re-image 7 different laptops. I considered RMA but I don't want to touch another OCZ drive. Please look away from the $$ amount and go with a quality SSD drive. After this experience I have started purchasing Intel SSD drives and I have none fail me yet.
