false advertising 10/17/2009 7:07:49 PM

Pros: cheap, fast for most tasks

Cons: I own this driver over 6 month and tried on 2 laptops, desktop and my server (withraid cards), all running on AHCI mode, non of them show NCQ enabled, this is not a SATA II interface HDD.

Overall Review: unless heavy IO during multi-tasking, most parts are fine.

Failed *RMA Experience* 7/16/2009 1:19:21 PM

Pros: The RMA drive shipped was new and not a refurb, props to OCZ for that.. after 6 months most drive failures get RMA'd with a refurb with other brands.. Also shiped replacement w/2nd day Air. Whole RMA process took about 2 weeks. Going to give them an extra star for this.

Cons: Still failed after 6 months, had to pay to ship it to them.

Overall Review: As long as this new one lasts several years I will be extremely happy with this drive, despite its small capacity.

Failed 7/15/2009 1:16:53 AM

Pros: Quick drive, low cost SSD, USB port has been handy, no problems getting a RMA from OCZ

Cons: Failed after 6 months of Desktop/Wokstation use, IO errors over SATA and drive would fail to register over USB. if it did register it would error on any attempt to access. Was my boot & apps drive, failure had extremely poor timing and the downtime likely cost more than the drive its self. Luckily backup's were available and working fine.

Overall Review: I am not the only one who has reported this problem, I have a Mtron SSD running in a production server that see's alot more use... its been running for almost 2 years w/no problems and it is just as fast. However I paid alot more for it so go figure.

Good While it Lasted 6/9/2009 7:01:41 PM

Pros: A Computer is only as fast as its slowest component. This SSD drive offers you Fast Shut down.. Good start up time. Lightning quick to start programs after the necessary adjustments the mfg recommended. I bought it for my (Compaq V3000 w/ 1.6Ghz Turion64 X2. 2Gigs RAM) laptop to remove the very obvious bottleneck OEM Hard Disk and to help bring it up to date for my needs. It made a noticeable difference.

Cons: About 6 months of ownership and 3 months of daily use, It Died.
After removing it from my laptop and let it cool down, I tried to retrieve some of my data from it through its USB connection. but the drive would go in and out of accessibility.
Luckily I am a back up freak and only lost a few emails and photos.

Overall Review: If you have the money, SSD are the future drives so have fun with the costly prototypes. I am going to wait a year or two before I get another one. Too much money to keep throwing away for a few months of actual use.

Great for Raid 0 5/14/2009 8:55:20 AM

Pros: The big advantage of these 30 GB SSDs is Raid 0. Typically, whith HDDs the more you configure in your Raid the higher the access time gets. With these, there is no appreciable increase in access time - just too cool! Additionally, there is little problem with decreasing probability of failure, given the long MTBF for these drives. Of course there is a huge gain in read times, as you add more drives to your raid.

I recommend buying two of these to start your Raid 0, rather than the one 60 GB drive recommended by the tech rep. Then you can add more drives as money as the economy gets better and funds become available (you will need a copy of Acronis migrate easy).

Cons: Some tweaking may be necessary in XP and Vista, but Windows 7 is optimized to take advantage of these drives.

Overall Review: Newegg is the best! After dealing with them for a while, all you have to do is dream about some computer equipment and it shows up on your doorstep in short order (I have five of these drives already). I have tried to explain to my wife that I cannot control the content of my dreams, all to no avail. What's up with that?

Incredible!!!! 5/4/2009 9:59:35 PM

Pros: This thing takes a licking & won't stop ticking! The 1500 G-force protection is NOT a joke...I've tested it. We went through 3 hard drives in 4 months due to using the computer to vent our frustration. Had this thing for 5 months same behavior and still good. Windows seems to start up a few seconds faster, not much difference since the main use is internet surfing and some home office work.

Cons: The one slight hitch was installing it. The hard drive is in a slim line desktop, so it was too small to stay in the slot. No adapter comes in the box, so you might want to look for that when buying this. Luckily, we had an unused 2.5" hard drive external case to stick it in and jerry-rig it in there.

Overall Review: This thing is small, light-weight, and has no moving parts. Now the storage isn't much, but it's perfect if you just use it to install your operating system on it and put your media on an extra separate hard drive (external or internal).

Excellent 4/22/2009 7:08:44 AM

Pros: Relatively inexpensive and fast. USB is handy for aligning and formatting drive.

Cons: I agree with some others that the drive could come pre-aligned, but really that only takes a few moments.

Overall Review: Currently SSD drives are a bit of a pain. Lots of little tweaks necessary to make everything get along, but I've enjoyed making my music server snap and consider it a worthwhile upgrade. May consider putting one in my Photoshop machine. I'm betting it would work wonders there.
