Pros: -Ram modules and heat spreaders have a Solid industrial build quality
-led light strip on top of modules
-DDR4 3000mhz @ 16-18-18-36-2T worked as advertised using XMP Profiles
-Packaging is nice with a carbon fiber faux texture
-XMP profiles for max performance
-No issues with Windows 7 or freezing/BSODS
-Heat spreaders may cause clearance issues for larger CPU heatsinks
Other Thoughts: DDR4 is here and along with it comes a hefty price tag. For the price, costing much more than every other component- including an i7 CPU- it doesn't make much sense to upgrade from DDR3 which cost about $400 less. But if you have the cash and are a benchmarker then by all means go for it. But for the average consumer DDR4 is just way too expensive to even be considered.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Packaging is pretty nice except the specifications for the 120GB is not listed on the back.
-Includes 3.5" Desktop SSD Adaptor
-Includes Acronis True Image HD Product Key
-No need to update firmware
Cons: -Power usage is 0.85W idle and 3.7W active compared to Samsung 850 Evo 120GB which is .50W idle and 2.1W active- does not make this ideal for Laptops if you want MAX battery life.
-Actual Sequential Read and write are lower than advertised.
Other Thoughts: OCZ while great for memory hasn't quite made their name in the SSD technology. Suffered by poor SSD products in the past, their reputation has been tarnished in recent years. Although this product works great, it is not something I would spend extra money on and considering the Samsung 850 EVO 120GB cost $67 - this is insanely priced at $90 for 120GB. The Samsung 850EVO beats it in just about every performance category.
Installation was a breeze on a Mac Mini 2012. Using Black Magic Speed Test I get about ~460MB/s Read and ~430MB/s Write. I haven't had any issues with the mac going to sleep and trim is supported and works great using the Trim Enabler App.
Overall, this product works great but is expensive and doesn't quite offer any advantages over its competitors.
