2 out of 5 eggs Not Enterprise Class, low MTBF 04/28/2011

This review is from: OCZ Z-Drive R2 P88 PCI-E PCI-Express interface (x8) MLC OCZSSDPX-ZD2P881T

Pros: Extremely Fast, great as a media scratch disk if you're dealing with 4K or 5K digital cinema intermediates. Can't be beat for this for the price, unless you want to spend $250K for a Violin.

Cons: Fails frequently. NAND flash modules drop like flies. especially in slot 7. Obvious design issue. BACK UP OFTEN.

Other Thoughts: This is a very fast drive, best used for scratch or temp storage. Our experience with this model is that the NAND flash module in Slot 7 fails frequently, followed by Slot 4 if you give it that much time. The 2TB version seems to be much more reliable for some reason, probably because OCZ switched NAND flash suppliers mid-stream (same SKU, no doubt, no way to tell an apple from a lemon). It's still very useful for very specific applications, just don't expect MTBF past a Mayfly's lifespan. 1,000,000 hours? We have several 1TB P88, none have made it past 2,000. Our units travel, but this shouldn't be an issue for SSD's should it?

We have a few RMAs to file this quarter, let's put it that way...

OCZ, expect our ops dept nastygram in 3... 2... 1...
