5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: - It's an SSD
- No firmware issues, latest firmware already
- No issues migrating my original OS image from an HDD to this SSD

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: Got it for 36.99 refurbished and it's working like a charm!
Replaced the HDD in my dad's 6 year old desktop, feels like a whole new system.

1 out of 5 eggsFailing too fast

Pros: - price
- speed
- big enough to be a windows boot drive

Cons: - ordered 3 units, one was DoA and replaced by NewEgg, 2nd died on me after 3 weeks of use - I'm not going to even bother to return that one since I wouldn't use it as boot drive again (just how many times does one want to reinstall windows...)
- paying shipping on returns of items this low priced makes DoAs hurt so much more...

Other Thoughts: Going to keep the remaining two to use for running games from...with the drive being backed up after install just in case. Just not reliable enough to be a windows boot drive (or I got terrible luck)

4 out of 5 eggs1 of 3 died

Pros: Great price and the SSDs are pretty fast too. Was planning to have 3 in RAID 0 configuration to use for windows boot disk. Was great while all 3 SSDs worked. Running with the remaining 2 for now until I get a replacement unit for the 3rd failed unit.

Cons: One of the 3 units ordered stopped being able to wake up from sleep after 4 days. A complete computer power down was required to get the unit recognized by the SATA controller again. NewEgg gave me no hassle returning it back.

Other Thoughts: I took the risk on refurbished units knowingly...sometimes the gamble pays off sometimes it doesn' stung with return shipping this time but the price i still great.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap, tough install

Pros: Cheap, hope it lasts, 180 day warranty

Cons: Does not come with any install software. I am now on my 4th hour of install procedures. I am very tech savvy. I guess I should have bought a USB to sata setup before installing this (hardware you can buy to format/install the drive before physical install). Without one, you have to backup the existing drive, then restore the image to the new ssd drive. Well, no free acronis with this so I got the free trial version of acronis. OCZ gives out free acronis for their newer drives, not this one. Surprise! No formatting software after installing acronis/trial and creating the bootable USB to recover the image. Also, the acronis boot software crashed because it wants the image on the root of the backup usb drive, also it tries to map all 1tb of my backup drive. Lesson learned there, have a usb thumb drive with the exact or near exact size of your harddrive image. Now, I am installing some nasty microsoft software to allow my downloaded/free boot disk creation software to work! Short of the long, well it is too long that you should be a computer expert to install a refurb drive that comes with nothing. OCZ and newegg know very well that some novice will never be able to do it. This is my 2nd SSD upgrade experience and both were excruciating. OCZ doesn't even acknowledge this drive they are CURRENTLY SELLING on their help section of their website. You can download acronis free for newer drives but not for this one.....they don't even have the vertex sata II on their menus when you try to look for help/install sofware. I will get this installed but what a pain in the back side! Thanks newegg and OCZ for nothing. A cheap price, my risk on the refurb with the warranty as-is. Well, it was cheap. My experience, very, very bad. Hope it lasts longer than the other reviews indicate.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you buy a SSD that comes with transfer software or backup/restore software. Make sure you get a USB to SATA cable/device before trying to upgrade if you are not too expert at harddrive restoration. Cheap is good but if you don't have unlimited time to play with this stuff, follow my advice.

5 out of 5 eggsLife for an old laptop

Pros: Looks and works as new. Went into an old Dell without issue and fits laptop bay perfectly. Very hast compared to 7200 rpm laptop drive.

Cons: None rely. It's 60G but plenty for a Windows 7 boot disk.
