1 out of 5 eggsWorthless Junk! Got 3 Bad Ones In A Row

Pros: None, these are all bad drives from OCZ that were returned then shipped to Newegg to sell to unsuspecting customers!

Cons: These are all bad drives that were returned to OCZ by customers then either sold to Newegg or someone from Newegg got them out of the dumpster behind the building and took them for resale. Nothing is done to fix them so you aren't going to get a good one and when you return it they will just send you another bad one!

Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these from Newegg. One was OK but the second one was dead. I returned it and got a replacement that looked like it had been overheated with the label wrinkled up but it was sealed up in the thick factory plastic package. It seemed slow and only worked for 1 day! I sent that one back and got another replacement that was dead out of the package. It looked old and had some residue on one side where something had been stuck on it then removed. I sent back the third one but they refused to replace it again and just sent it back! They are crooks selling junk! Do not buy any drives from them!

2 out of 5 eggsRequires Firmware Upgrade to Work

Pros: As it is a solid state drive, It is quiet and fast.

Cons: It arrived with firmware 3.50 installed, which lost data constantly. I would install an OS, reboot, and the system would report it could not find the boot files. After reviewing the forums, I determined a firmware upgrade to version 3.55 was necessary. Unfortunately, the live CD iso file the manufacturer provided had lots of problems. I found an alternative live USB iso file and it worked, but only after I installed the drive in a different system where I could go into the BIOS and tweak the SATA mode. It took me a couple days of messing around with trial and error attempts before I could get the drive to work properly. Here is the link to the forum you will need if you want to get the USB live iso that worked for me:

Other Thoughts: If you're willing to put lots of time into troubleshooting and updating the firmware, this can be a good drive.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst SSD

Pros: Low price. Definitely faster than regular SATA drives, although have not measured. Fits Ibm R60 Thinkpad laptop perfectly. Loads and runs Linux faster than any other computer I have.

Cons: none, will monitor if it lasts long term

Other Thoughts: Have difficulty loading windows. XP seems to format the drive and load, but on reboot, it does not proceed to XP, just cycles reloading the bios. Same effect on 2 different computers. Tried FAT32 and NTFS and Gparted but no avail. Since Linux is running flawlessly, there must be something specific in preparing the drive for XP which I'm missing. Guess others must have had similar problems, returning the drives and thus making this refurbished offer possible.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking well

Pros: Seems to be working fine. SSD speed is nice.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I did not update the firmware. I needed a boot drive for an htpc and this was the cheapest option. I would not hesitate to buy another.

4 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for.

Pros: Cheap SSD. Noticeably faster than my WD Black 7200 rpm drive. Boot up time decreased by 2/3 time. Shut down is almost instantaneous. Impressive. I only use this for my OS running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and it works very well.

Cons: 1. Wish it was bigger. 2. If you read online about it this drive is supposedly rife with firmware update issues, which you will need to do to help prevent corruption errors if your system were to shut down incorrectly. Anyway, it was a bit of a headache, mostly due to user error, but in the end worth it. 3. Not the best tech on the market as far as ssd read and write speeds go but I knew that going into this. Like I said though, still faster than my previous hard drive with magnetic plates and moving parts.

Other Thoughts: WEI 7.0 if anyone cares to know (not that these scores mean anything (I still like them)). Hoping this will last me a good while until I can afford to buy a bigger drive. Got this with a coupon code for 31 dollars and free shipping. Was hesitant at first but glad I took the chance. Even if it was a bust being a refurbished drive, which I for tend to think would be even more reliable seeing as it's been thoroughly inspected to make sure it runs correctly, 30 bones is not going to break the bank. Overall worth it in my opinion. I'll update if anything goes awry. I might get another one for my macbook but snow leopard doesn't have trim support. Might still do it.
