1 out of 5 eggsTime Vampire

Pros: Performance was good while it lasted. Price "was" good.

Cons: After a couple months the computer started be finicky about booting and then finally refused to boot at all. Was able to reformat and re-install, but the operating system files would end up being corrupted after a couple of reboots on a fresh install of Win 7.

Other Thoughts: The "low" price was pretty high when you consider this time vampire sucked down 12 hours of my life with trouble shooting and re-installs...will not get those hours back. Buy a Samsung EVO and save yourself the agony.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm hopeful

Pros: - Price
- adapter
- speed

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought this because I wanted this size SSD for a boot drive and this had the best price among SATA III drives. Passed SMART in PartedMagic. SMART showed 0 hours! Works well as my Windows 7 boot drive - much better than the Sata II 64GB I had. I'm hoping that it lasts.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Drive

Pros: Impressive performance. Kudos to the Barefoot controller. Initial scan of drive indicate zero usage. I guess Toshiba was clearing out the Vertex 450 with the introduction of the Vertex 460s using Toshiba's 19 nm TLC NAND. Very well constructed with good looking packaging. Includes 2.5 to 3.5 plate, screws and access to free Acronis migration software. Firmware was already updated to the latest version in the drive.

Cons: Unable to get temperature reading even with the OCZ toolbox software - minor, but irritating.

Other Thoughts: This refurbished drive was the best deal on the market with the $15 rebate when offered (Final cost just under $55.). My 3rd OCZ refurbed and all of them continue to perform flawlessly (Vertex 2 and Agility 3). The rebate card arrived in less than 4 weeks - Highly impressive. Liked it so much that I purchased another before the rebate period expired. Would have got another but Newegg ran out of stock.

4 out of 5 eggsOCZ Refurbished VTX450

Pros: Fast, worked as hoped being a refurb, easy clone from WD terabyte drive with included Acronis software.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: There was a firmware update, no problem using the included software. If cloning from an existing rotational drive from Windows 7, Windows will need to be configured to optimize the SSD as follows:

SSD Optimization - Windows 7

** Set your SATA mode in the BIOS to ‘AHCI’ before installing your OS **

Disable Disk Defragmenter
Right-click on the SSD in ‘Computer’ and select properties. Click the ‘Tools Tab’ and click ‘Defragment Now.’ Click ‘Configure Schedule’ and uncheck ‘Run on a Schedule.’

Disable Hibernation
Open the command prompt as an Administrator. At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press ENTER.

Disable System Restore
Right-click ‘Computer’ click properties. Click ‘System Protection’ then click ‘Configure.’ Select ‘Turn off System Protection’ click ‘OK.’

Disable Superfetch
Start > Run > services.msc.
Double click Superfetch, set startup type to Disabled. Apply.

Disable Drive Indexing
Right-click on the SSD in "Computer" and select Properties. Uncheck ‘Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties’ option. Apply.

Enable Write Caching (This should be enabled, but let’s check...)
Start > Run > devmgmt.msc
Click Disk drives to expand.
Double click SSD and click the Policies Tab
Check ‘Enable Write Caching on the Device’ box. Click OK.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat success.

Pros: Was very cheap, worked great out of the box. No problems.

Cons: No cons. I do wish the Write Speeds was faster, but this is exactly what I ordered, no surprises.

5 out of 5 eggsPleasantly Surprised

Pros: --1) Fast and cheap
--2) No signs of wear, even when checking the S.M.A.R.T. status with OCZ's software.
--3) No read-write errors so far

Cons: --1) My Asus A88X motherboard complains that this drive fails the S.M.A.R.T. check at bootup; I had to manually disable those checks to boot. This might be due to the refurbishing process, triggering a flag somewhere.

Other Thoughts: As with any SSD (especially refurbished) be sure to have an automated, off-drive backup. I haven't had any issues, but you never know, especially if it complains about failing boot checks.
