4 out of 5 eggs Amended Review : Nice drive 10/25/2011

This review is from: OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros:

The drive is very fast; my home studio is like new again! Windows 7 boots in a few seconds (my computer takes longer to POST).

Cons:

I had to update the firmware, making installation annoying and bothersome. I was certain my drive was DOA until then. This is sort of new technology, and I'd urge you not to use this drive for data or anything critical.

Other Thoughts:

So, like many others, my drive failed to be detected by bios upon subsequent boots. If I did a cold boot on the machine, I could get it alive and kicking again. Doing this, I ran a ubuntu live disk and updated the firmware (you cannot do this if you boot off the drive). I've rebooted the machine several times since (installing windows and all), and I've had no issues. Seriously, this thing is a peach now, so I take back my former 1-star. The headache it caused kept it from 5, however.
