Pros: works for a while

Cons: suddenly stops working, can't see the drive in BIOS, and OS was on the drive, in less than 3 years. Emailed OCZ for warranty service, don't hear anything.

Pros: was nice while it lasted

Cons: Was running this drive on my media center computer with windows 7 and it failed in less than a year. I am now on my second trouble ticket with OCZ for this drive..... If you don't respond back in the appropriate amount of time they close the ticket.

Good while it lasted 12/19/2012 4:55:58 AM

Pros: It was a zippy little drive.

Cons: It lasted me all of ten months and is now dead and I have try and get warranty service. The MTBF 1,500,000 hours cake is a lie. SSD = Sudden Silent Death.

still happy 10/1/2012 11:25:46 PM

Pros: Installed this drive in my windows 7 machine in January and its now october and it is still running with no issues at all so far. still boots just as fast as the day i installed windows.

Cons: none

Overall Review: make sure when you install a SDD you turn off defrag. I also have 3 seagate 1.5TB HDD's that i use as iTunes media storage and run the OS, iTunes and games from the SDD.

Pros: Still happy.

Cons: Newegg shipping drive with 3.02 firmware that is five months out of date and can cause catastrophic data loss on SATA I and SATA II systems if not updated.

Overall Review: Updating my review from above. . .still happy with the drive, but realized after I installed in my notebook that even tho I have a SATA II notebook it still requires the firmware update (must be at least 3.50 for SATA II, 3.55 for SATA I). If you're buying this for a notebook, understand you almost certainly need to flash the firmware on your DESKTOP MACHINE. Most laptops will not have a bios option for "IDE Mode" that the firmware updater requires.

So save yourself some trouble and update the firmware with your desktop machine (which will have that bios option for IDE Mode) BEFORE you install this drive in a laptop. Otherwise you'll end up having to take it out of the laptop again to get the firmware updated to where you need it.

Can't reccomend this for 2007 macbook pro users 2/28/2012 9:52:27 AM

Comments: This drive probably works great in some computers. I have no idea why it wouldn't work in mine. Neither the professionals at the Apple service center nor OCZ could give me any reason why it shouldn't work in my macbook pro though. Either there is some unknown incompatibility or I was unlucky enough to get 2 defective drives in a row, or something.

Bottom line, if pros at an apple authorized service center can't get the thing to work, even while attempting to work with the manufacturer, then what else is there to do other than try another brand?

Manufacturer Response:
We are very sorry for the difficulties. We are unsure why this drive did not work in your Macbook. I can say that cloning your old drive may have been a problem, as SSD drives store data differently and a new installation is recommended. We offer phone support during normal working hours. We also have fully staffed support forums available at the link below. We will be happy to assist you or the support center in getting your system up and running. Thank you
