After few days strange things start to happen: PC screen would freeze, blue screens, "missing OS errors, memory errors.

Luckly, within about 6 hours of creating a RMA ticket on OCZ's website, they contacted me and are going to replace this one with an OCZ Agility III.

7/2/12 Update: Not sure what happened with the last Windows Update, but this drive has officially died with about 3 months of use.

There are few products where I read the reviews and have 100% the same results as the reviewer. Unfortunatly, this is one of those products. Spend a few minutes reading all of the reviews on this product on the egg and then buy a different product. Most of the reviews on this product deal with it dying within a few weeks to a month of purchasing it. Mine lasted 6 days. If I had not gotten this product at such a fantastic deal (about $0.58 a GB) I would not have purchased it. I thought "Maybe I will be one of the lucky few that get this product, update the firmware and have no issues". The store I bought it from (not Amazon) was great about offering a return, but unfortuantly I wouldn't be able to get the same size SSD for the price I paid. Luckly, within about 6 hours of creating a RMA ticket on OCZ's website, they contacted me and are going to replace this one with an OCZ Agility III. I did have to pay $3 to ship this back to them, but that was expected. I will write a review on the Agility once it's received, but I wanted to warn others to stay away from the Petrol.

I bought this SSD because it was a good value (got it for $130 - $30 mail-in rebate at Micro Center). The drive is definitely faster than my 7200rpm hard drive. I loved it, but the love didn't last very long. After few days strange things start to happen: PC screen would freeze, blue screens, "missing OS errors, memory errors. I gave it few more days, then I popped in my old hard drive and problems stopped. I was lucky it failed right away and I was able to return it.

Bought one for a customer the other day and it lasted log enough to initialize.
From there it would hang and not be detected by any system I had(Dell,Intel ,Fujitsu).

To top it off,I got a replacement and it was DOA within minutes of being initialized.

Somebody needs to report these folks to the FTC as this product is a joke!

I have had two of these drives go bad in the past 6 months. I am in the process of RMAing these; however, it is very frustrating when you get an OS installed and after a period of months, both drives stopped working on seperate desktops. I will never purchase an OCZ drive again and will not use the RMA drives as a system disk or for longterm storage.

I purchased the 128GB OCZ Petrol in February 2012 and immediately updated its firmware to 3.12. Within 6 weeks of using the device as a secondary file storage drive in a laptop (storing 40GB of files-- 1/3 of rated capacity), OSX started reporting read errors, making affected files inaccessible. Running ddrescue reported about 300KB of i/o errors across the disk. The drive sat on a shelf until August 2012 when I updated the firmware to 3.15. The reported "remaining life" S.M.A.R.T. data shows 93%, but the drive is useless! Reading too soon after a write operation causes the disk to freeze until reboot. I can't even format it - I get an error message saying the last block is inaccessible. In a desktop, half the time the BIOS will not even recognize the SATA drive in AHCI mode, and the bios fails to detect anything in IDE emulation mode.
I will never buy anything from OCZ again! Stay away from the Petrol series.

I purchased this just over 90 days over this review and it died. I currently have an RMA with OCZ and we shall see what happens.

This SSD worked fine for about a month. Then, out of the blue, Windows wouldn't boot up. The bios won't recognize it. After a few minutes of being powered down, it booted fine. This happened a few times last week. Yesterday, it just wouldn't boot up the computer at all. This morning, after it rested all night, the computer boots up fine. (It's what I'm using now). Junk, junk, junk. I don't know if SSD's all behave this way, or just this OCZ Petrol. I'm nervous about moving to Kingston or Crucial because will this same aggravation happen, too? It's my fault. tried to save money by buying the cheapest SSD and that's exactly what I got. I hate to give a product just one star, but this unpredictable drive warrants it in the amount of ulcers I've gotten.
