Fast but ready for Prime Time?
Pros: Very Fast - Operating System, Applications, and Data load in a blink. You really notice the difference from a traditional drive without resorting to speed tests.
Overall Review: Not sure the drive is ready for Prime Time. It turned into a brick only 10 days after first use. Awaiting RMA to see if I have better luck with another one. Make sure you have a BACKUP when using this drive.
Failure #3 - Dead Drive
Pros: Fast when it's working
Cons: I have purchased 2 of these drives, and as of today have already had 3 Failures! I have returned this drive to OCZ 2 times already and have patiently waited approximately 10 days each time through their RMA process to have these replaced. The newest drive I purchased from Newegg only 10 days ago and today failed. The drive is no longer recognized by the BIOS during the boot process, so there is nothing I can do with it except return it.
Overall Review: This drive is not ready to be used by consumers. There is obviously a problem with some component that has not been properly tested. At least I learned to keep backup copies current after my first failure, but it's very frustrating not to be able to keep one running longer.
