Initial Review: My 4 year old HP system was running a little slow, but rather than a total overhaul I decided to just upgrade from my 500GB SATA 7200rpm hard drive running Vista to the OCZ Petrol 64GB SSD with Windows 7, and 24 hours in, it's been fantastic. Boot time is almost non-existent, and the programs I installed on the drive (Office, iTunes, etc) load up in a flash. Obviously the size means I need to run a second drive to house pictures/music, but you have to expect that getting a 64GB drive. Overall, for someone with limited computer building experience, the install was super easy. If you're looking for a quick, relatively inexpensive upgrade, this is the way to go.
Even after more than 8 months, OCZ replaced my Petrol SSD for a newer Agility 4, wich so far has worked incredibly well. Kudos to OCZ for caring about their customer, but the two star rating remains for the horrible Petrol drive.
Bought this as my first SSD on February 2012. This is the fifth time I've had to reinstall my OS, because after just a few weeks I start getting file corruption errors. At first I thought it had to do with my config, but after seeing similar complaint from other people with the same drive I decided to ty installng Win7 64 on my old 500 GB HD and havent had an issue since, other than the lower speed. I can definetively tell that it has been this drive that's been giving me headaches all along.
The only reason I give it two stars instead of one, is because when it works it shows the advantages of an SSD over a traditional HDD
Very poor read/write speeds even for the time when purchased! They seemingly dumbed down their controller for this smaller SSD, which seems wrong somehow if it's only purpose was to give customers less bang for their buck. 2 years or so and retired block count is 100 and it reads 80% life left, but it crashs and performs like it has much less juice in the tank. One of the worst experiences with value from a value aimed product I have ever had.
Thanks OCZ for great warranty service, but this drive is a dud.
