to find a space to park, while more amounts of bigger data can cause slowdown

like a personal valet...
ARC 100 manages data
efficiently, making it
easier and faster
to “park” more data

Warranty, Returns, And Additional Information
2/ 5
Worked Fine Until it Failed

Pros: No issues for a few years

Cons: Failed after about 3 years of casual use

Other Thoughts: Began failing after about 3 years of use. Frequent system crashes which only stopped once this SSD was removed from my computer. Contacted OCZ for support but they informed me the warranty ran out a few months before this, and there is nothing they can do.

Makes a good paperweight, I guess.

Great longevity

Pros: Still going strong after several years and after several 100s of TBs written to it through video editing.

Cons: Metal casing is nice but if you're going to put this in a laptop the extra weight isn't worth it.

Other Thoughts: I basically put this through a torture test in its lifespan so it's nice it's still maintaining SATA saturated speeds with no errors or loss of data.

Decent Drive

Pros: Good capacity for price (at least when I bought it).
Fast speeds.

Cons: EaseUS would NOT shrink my Windows partition down to this drive, it would get to 16% and fail every time.
I used Clonezilla to swap this SSD with a different SSD in another computer and this OCZ SSD now works just fine. EaseUS was able to shrink the Windows partition down to the replacement SSD, so I don't really know what the problem is. Perhaps its that Firmware "valet" they talk about on the product description page?

Other Thoughts: I bought the 240GB version in 2014. By the time my wife shrunk her C: drive down enough to fit, I could have bought the 480GB version instead. SSDs are progressing way too fast.

Straight Performance, Great Price

Pros: I could talk about the standard stuff like the size and the fact it's an SSD and faster than a HDD, etc. but that's why you by something like this. Pros for this particular drive would be its price (best) and the included software for monitoring it and keeping its firmware up to date. Nice feature to have.

Cons: So far, I've seen no cons, perhaps a comment about how you don't get the whole 500 GB to yourself due to a bigger partitioning, but otherwise, I've been happy with this disk.

Other Thoughts: I've owned some OCZ products for awhile now and have yet to report any failures of any of them. If you're worried about the great price, I've yet to see any troubles from it.
