5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: FAST! Incredible write and read speeds. MUCH faster than my Samsung 830 series drive.
No data corruption
Still going strong

Cons: Has disconnected once from my PC without touching it...
OCZ warranty is goooonnnneeee

Other Thoughts: Its always risky to purchase a refurb SSD. Especially if its OCZ. This SSD came in the original package like it would if it was new. Only difference was that it had a small refurbished sticker on the front of it. Installing it was a breeze and haven't had an issue since. I would recommend this SSD, however, you just never know what you'll get so the next could be a lemon...I took the risk and I've won so far... 6 months and going strong.

Pros: First recertified device I've bought. First SSD I've bought. Amazingly fast, windows loads fast. I heard good stuff about these and I strongly recommend.

Cons: I was wondering where to register this product, could not find anything in the box or the website.

Other Thoughts: Overall I saw an exceptional drive for the money, "manufacturer recertified" I would try again, can be some good deals to find!

2 out of 5 eggsbroke

Pros: Its cheap!

Cons: Ive never had any problems with OCZ SSD's til I got this one as a refurbed. The price is just too cheap so I went with it. It died after a week so newegg replaced it right away and the replacement broke after a month. Good thing newegg accepted my return and got the store credit which I dont mind because I always buy from them anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: For a refurb it works great. Its fast and as of right now i haven't had any issues with it. I own the exact same model only I bought it the year prior as a new drive and i get the same performance from this refurb as i do with the new one.

Cons: Warranty leaves much to be desired.

Other Thoughts: As long as this continues to work good i'd say you shouldn't hesitate to buy this simple because of how awesome it is and for the price - its hard to argue with it!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: My conventional hard drive was going out and I saw this as a great opportunity to finally get an SSD. With the price it was at, I could not pass it up.

I was able to finally (after a couple tries) to get my old HD cloned over and it has worked great from the beginning. Boot times are so much better, even on SATA II. Waiting on a new MB now so that I can finally get the full benefits of SATA III. Awesome drive.

Cons: None.

Pros: Very fast, and fast boot up

Cons: Does not meet specified speeds in benchmark performance tests. specs are

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice drive

Pros: I've bought Vertex 4 drives a lot and this one didn't disappoint. It made my laptop A LOT faster, especially since the former hard drive was a very low performance one even by laptop standards. My battery life increased due to the lower power usage and the temperatures dropped.

Overall, it was a great decision and the 256GB were enough room to have it remain a gaming laptop without having to remove a ton of games.

Cons: Unfortunately, my laptop only had a SATAII controller. This drive seems to slow down a lot more than others when not connected to a SATAIII port. It definitely was a worthwhile upgrade regardless.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't touch a refurbished SSD except for the fact that I know the history of these. OCZ released series 3 and 4 of their SSDs with non-working firmware that would make them disappear from the BIOS drive detection list on most motherboards. A bunch got returned since people didn't know to flash the firmware so all they did at the factory was flash it and resell it. It's basically guaranteed to be a new SSD with zero defects so ignore the "refurbished" part.
If you don't believe me, buy one and look at the firmware version listing on the drive. It's crossed off and re-stamped. That's ALL they did to fix it.
