OCZ Octane 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Easy installation on MAC OS X
-Worked fine out of box without problems
-Incredible performance enhancements
-Indilinx controller has posed zero problems
-OCZ owns indilinx so firmware updates are fast vs. drives where you wait on 3rd party
-Great value for price
-No bugs so far unlike drives with SandForce controllers

Cons: The only con would be the OCZ Vertex is a bit better value, but I'm betting on the flexibility of future firmware updates with Indilinx vs. waiting on 3rd party updates. Each person can make their own choice, but SSDs with in-house controllers are the best way to future proof your investment.

Other Thoughts: This is easily the best upgrade you can make to your computer. The 256GB is an ideal size / price upgrade. Yes it's $400, but for $400 you'll get what is essentially a brand new computer. Not bad. OSX Lion reload from start to finish in less than 20 minutes. Boot times are around 10 seconds. Wakeup from hibernation is nearly instant. This was a great decision.
