The SSD Advantage

Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.

SSD speed compare
Greater Durability

Solid State Drives feature a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards, shock resistant up to 1500g. Hard disk drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage.

Faster Performance

SSDs have 100 times greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot-ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives. HDDs can only access the data faster the closer it is from the read/ write heads, while all parts of the SSD can be accessed at once.

Less Power Consumption, Silent Operation, and Lightweight

SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard disk drives--less than 2W versus 6W for an HDD--delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment. With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment. And SSDs won't weigh down your laptop, netbook, or tablet PC when you're on the go.

SSDs run much cooler than hard disk drives...

The first thing that was disappointing about this purchase was that the manufacturer mail-in-rebate wasn't honored. That wasn't very much money, but it influenced my decision to buy this product instead of one from another manufacturer. In the end I thought if this was the worst thing about this purchase then I would be happy. However, it wasn't the end.

Pros: Worked fast while it lasted. Windows definitely booted faster than my previous IDE and SATA hard-drives.

Cons: Died within 60 days with little warning. I'd consider myself an advanced computer user (not in the IT field but used to be) and all my troubleshooting came up with nothing. I can't even format the drive since it doesn't show up using the windows recovery tool. Putting it in another computer after windows has booted did not discover the drive. The same is true if connected before boot either by itself or with another windows boot drive. It seems to show up in the BIOS settings as part of the boot order but you can't do anything to the drive from there so there's not much I can do, all it shows is the name/model and that it's attached to SATA0 on the motherboard.

Last Word: I'm trying to get the drive replaced by OCZ but for now I'm without a solid state drive and wasted hours troubleshooting. I'll continue to waste many more hours no doubt. I'll update when I receive word from them.

I have had the same problem as others mentioned. I was getting blue screens for no reasons then one day when the system rebooted, the BIOS could not find the SSD. I went in to the BIOS and pointed it to boot to the SSD but on reboot all I got was a black sceen with no Windows logo. After 5 minutes it went back into the BIOS. Now the SSD was gone from the BIOS. I rebooted, the SSD came back in the BIOS but again on reboot, just a black screen. I took the SSD and tried it in 2 laptops and had the same behavior, just a black screen. I put it back in my desktop, booted up with the Windows 7 installation disk, and it didn't see the drive at all.

I sent it back because it was in the return period and got a replacement. I was still getting BSODs so I read something online saying to RE-ENABLE the Hibernation file, even though I tell the PC to never sleep or hibernate. For the last 2 weeks, not BSODS. However, sometimes when I reboot, the BIOS no longer sees the SSD and I need to restart again, but this time, it always boots back in to Windows 7. So, I am not sure if there as issue with the motherboard also but I am sure the original issues were because of a bad drive considering it wouldn't work in 2 other machines.

Size Name: 128 G Verified Purchase
As an FYI, I already have some positive experience with this brand, rocking a Vertex 3 on my main rig at home. Now for the review...

I was issued a new laptop for work and got stiffed with a spinning hard drive - not enough performance to satiate the efficiency needs of my daily spreadsheet habit. "More power," I cried, as the laptop failed to instantly respond to my every request. Control+T for a new tab, slickdeals.net, search for "SSD", and up comes this thing. Reviews are everywhere and some of the poor reviews look like they were written by people who have never worked on a computer. I decide to pull the trigger anyway - $55 after rebate and the high-speed storage void of my soul is filled.

The SSD arrives two days later (Prime, baby!) in a smallish package with a single air puff - looks good to me. Out come the scissors, two sides are cut, and the tingling sensations start. Over to my main rig - Start > Shutdown. I plug in this beast along with the spinny thing from my work laptop, boot up Acronis, and ghost over the original HDD in about 5-10 minutes. My heartrate is increasing...

Back to the laptop with the SSD - not exactly the right fit for the caddy on my Latitude E6420. I omit the screw that attaches the caddy to the drive, slide it in, and drive in the 4 screws that hold it in place. Flip it over, open it up, and push the power button with mixed emotions of hope, dread, and eternal glory... The boot screen shows, clears, and then.......WINDOWS LOGO! Boom! 10 seconds later I'm at the password prompt and trying to be nonchalant as I wipe away a tear and a bit of drool from the corner of my mouth.

24 hours later...

Still going strong!

don't let the top read scores of other drives fool you - this drive is consistently faster than most of us will ever need, with write optimized speeds faster than drives costing 50% more from other makers. as of Summer'2012 if you are patient, you should be able to find these on sale or rebate well under $100 shipped. no HD:SSD migration software or USB:SATA adapter is included.

with a EasyBCD boot manager i'm booting Win8eval Win7pro and WinXPpro each on a 40gb partition of this one drive, that all share the same HD based app/data drive and it's working fast and flawlessly. OCZ's 4thGen drives use an inhouse cache controller, which means they will continue to be optimized long after 5thGen drives come out once DDR4 is available in late 2013.

buyers with older PC's should be aware that OCZ's Linus based firmware upgrade software may not work on SCSI buses without ASPI support, also WinXP will only boot after an offset alignment or boot manager partition (an issue all SSD's share). Trim house keeping support is built into the controller algorithm, so don't worry about not having any manual WinXP trim software.

Warning: most 4th Generation drives will not RAID0 or RAID1 on AMD or Intel motherboards with older chipsets as the latest SSD firmware is only backward compatible to year ago motherboard bios. if you intend to stripe or mirror two same SSD drives make sure you confirm with OCZ support that your current bios can handle this. example a AMD 760G chipset motherboard will not be able to RAID these drives.
