OCZ Nocti Series NOC-MSATA-120G 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs In service for a year, works flawlessly 08/14/2013

This review is from: OCZ Nocti Series NOC-MSATA-120G 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Flawless reliability, fast performance, easy installation

Cons: Higher unit cost per byte than magnetic media

Other Thoughts: I put this into service about a year ago as the boot drive for a server, and it has Just Worked. No data errors whatsoever. The server boot time decreased from about 45 seconds to about 10 seconds, under Debian Linux.

Seagate Constellation ES ST2000NM0011 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast and reliable.

Cons: Warranty only 3 years, versus 5 for WD and some others.

Other Thoughts: I bought 16 of these for my company (from another vendor; I use Newegg for my personal purchases). We deployed 8 into each two Promise VessRAID 1840i chassis. They've been in production for just over a year, running as an iSCSI SAN for an environment consisting of VMware ESXi, Linux, Solaris, and mainframe systems.

We have had zero failures, and on our multipathed GigE network the bottleneck for performance is still the network and not the drives.

I'm about to build a home NAS appliance from parts, and even though it's for personal use, I probably will spring the extra cash for a set of these drives because I've been really pleased with them at work.

Enterprise grade drives are worth the money if you need the best long-term reliability.
