5 out of 5 eggsWorks

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Replaced an OCZ 60 gig SSD that has been in service for 5 years. Cloning went right through, and old drive reformatted for extra storage. So far so good!

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: Good price for SSD. Thinking about getting another to update an old laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsgood product but rebate not honored

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: works as advertised

good price

Cons: rebate not honored

Other Thoughts: i bought a couple of these as i've had success with OCZ in the past and with their rebates, even, but this time, with $40 on the line, they chose not to honor their rebate offer, saying that my name on the rebate form didn't match the name on the sales invoice. (one or the other of the invoice or rebate form must have had my nickname, but, hey, same one-rebate-claim-per-household home address, so what's the diff?)

anyways, just saying: fill out your rebate paperwork letter-perfect, as i guess they are only too happy to deny claims and risk losing your repeat business, as i'm going to be only too happy to never give them mine again--unless their product is at least $40 cheaper than the comparable kit of other vendors' stuff i'd consider buying

1 out of 5 eggsRebate or NO rebate

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - heavy case

Cons: - NO software

Other Thoughts: The performance of this ssd is slightly below average but it's ok to me.
However, my complaint is about the rebate. Ocz declined my application for not providing clear invoice (what I gave was a packing list which was provided by NewEgg). My opinion is OCZ's trying to make the rebate difficult to get.
Think twice if you're thinking to take the advantage of rebate. I would not recommand this one.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Suk C.,

Thank you for sharing your review of the ARC 100. It is true, packing slips are not a substitute for a receipt or invoice. The company that processes the rebates should contact you and request the required documentation. If this has not occurred please contact us directly so we can step in and assist. You can contact us anytime using the link below.

Thank you very much for your purchase. I am confident we can sort out this rebate issue with you.

Kind Regards,

Robert

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Drive

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast enough for my needs. Boots a messy Windows install in under 30 seconds. The software adds value. I needed more room for my surfing machine and it fit the bill. Cheap, SATA III, and Toshiba seemed like a no-brainer compared to other value drives.

Cons: No temperature sensor. I can't for the life of me get Acronis to load through the SSD Guru software. I finally gave up and used my go-to workaround. Temporarily install a WD drive and use their Acronis version to backup the drive.

Other Thoughts: How does a an ancient Corsair Nova 32GB drive have a temperature sensor and this drive doesn't? That and the Acronis issue are for the one egg off.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo failed drives in under 6 months.

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Performance is good.

Cons: First drive failed within 2 weeks. 2nd drive lasted about 4 months and then failed. Used a partition recovery product but was unable to cleanly recover the data as way to many sectors were invalid proving that this drive cannot withstand anything more than just casual use. I'm switching to an enterprise grade SSD going forward.

Other Thoughts: With the prices for SSDs having dropped so quickly, it doesn't make sense to by consumer grade flash like OCZ. Spend a little more and buy an enterprise grade device that will handle the garbage collection and overwrites more consistently.

Manufacturer Response:

Pros: Normal SSD speed

Cons: Unreliable. Dead after two weeks. I lost all my data on it. Won't ever buy an OCZ again.

1 out of 5 eggsALL 4 DOA... seriously

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: NONE

Cons: Bought 2, both bad, RMA'd, got 2 more, both BAD!!!
The first two; One failed to format, the 2nd was undetectable in bios. I tried two laptops, plus my business , tech pc. RMA'd, bot two more. Again, one will not recognize in bios, the other took 10 min to "quick format" then failed to load image to drive! Corsair SSD took the image fine

Other Thoughts: Maybe newegg should ship these $100 drives in something better than a manila envelope? I got two the other day in a box with no bubble wrap. I ship my used fleabay equipment better than this!!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

My name is Robert and I monitor customer feedback here on Newegg.com. The packaging of the ARC 100 should be enough to protect the drive in transit under most conditions. If the packaging is really only an unpadded envelope or box with no padding I suppose damage is possible if transit is exceptionally difficult. It also possible there is a technical issue in play here which is why we have a support staff available to assist with issue diagnosis and resolution.

Please contact us about these problems. I am confident we can correct what is occurring.

Kind Regards,

Robert

2 out of 5 eggsFast while they work

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast while they work.
Prompt customer service from OCZ.

Cons: First drive failed after less than 5 months. Replaced under warranty by OCZ.
Replacement drive failed after less than 2 months.

Other Thoughts: OCZ is replacing the second failed ARC 100 with a Vector 180, which has a good reputation. I'll be interested to see how long that one lasts.

Fortunately, I backup the boot drive every night. Still a pain having to restore the backup.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am sorry to read you experienced multiple issues with the ARC 100. It is very unusual to experience issues like this as the ARC 100 is an ultra-compatible drive. It appears we have provided another replacement and upgrade to the brand new Vector 180. I am confident this new product will serve you well.

Best Regards,

Robert
