I did a lot of research on SSDs prior to making my purchase, this is by far the best price/GB for any 120-128GB SATA III SSD at the time I bought it. There were a lot of complaints about the drive, but it appeared to me that the majority of them come from people who haven't updated their firmware or set their SATA mode to AHCI in BIOS. Based on what I've read, these two steps are basic things you would have to do for any SSD. Although you could say it should work out of the box, consumer SSDs are just not as technically mature as HDDs, so less informed or less tech savvy people are going to run into these problems. For me this drive never gave me problems probably because I followed these two basic steps. OCZ's Agility 3 and Vertex 3 also ran into problems when they were introduced and since then, firmware updates have fixed those issues. From what I read, Petrols came out at the end of 2011, so I assume it took OCZ some time to figure out the details as well. Other very reputable manufacturers, like Corsair and Intel, also had firmware bugs when their SSDs first arrived on the market.
I also noticed OCZ released version 3.15 of their Petrol firmware recently so for those buying the drive now, it goes without saying do go and upgrade to that version before using it.
I will never buy anything from OCZ again! Stay away from the Petrol series.
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!
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.
