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.

I've been using this in my laptop for a couple of months now. It's hosting Windows 7, some common applications and a couple of games. I put my old HDD into an external enclosure and use it for stuff that I don't frequently access. This configuration will work for most laptop users and so you don't need a huge SSD to make your system blazing fast. If you're productivity oriented and you're looking for a cheap upgrade for a 0 to 4 year old laptop or desktop, this is probably the best investment for your money. Anything older you're probably looking to do a full upgrade.

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 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.

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!

So, this is directed at the manufacturer. Amazon was easy to deal with, and the transaction/shipping went off with out a hitch as always.

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.
