It's worth noting that this drive's performance will drop sharply when it is over 50% full. The first unit I received died within a month so I had it returned and received a replacement. I have been using the replacement happily for almost a month now without issues, but it is also worth noting that SSDs tend to die without warning. OCZ has had a history of high drive failure rate, but I believed that this drive with its new controller would be different. I'm still willing to give OCZ a chance since the failed drive I had may have just been luck. However, if you're reading this review looking to buy this product check the other reviews for more failure reports.

Performance wise, this drive is blindingly fast (I keep mine below the 50% threshold). Windows 8 WEI rating gives it an 8.1 which is pretty good. I don't have the resources to do an exhaustive speed test, but general usage has been quite enjoyable on this drive. If you get this drive, my recommendation would be to get a robust backup system as well to backup your data with in case the drive fails.

This SSD is awesome! It comes bundled with Acronis TrueImage HD 2013 which allowed me to transfer everything from my old HDD to my new SSD in less than 7 minutes!!! And don't get me started with boot time and loading of software! My boot time before the SSD was almost 2 minutes, with the SSD Win7 loads in a little over 10 seconds. I also work with graphic design software and was amazed to see Photoshop loads in 2 SECONDS FLAT!

I'm really happy with this product.

Bought the drive less than a year ago, used in a ACER laptop, not over worked, maybe 3 hours a day. It crapped out after 11 months. It has a 3 year warranty, so I wanted to get it fixed/replaced. Come to find out I have to pay the shipping to Taiwan for repair or what have you, the warranty says you need to pay for all NON-CONFORMING drive. I asked what that meant, and was told "Basically, all the defective drive, the customer is required to pay shipping and handling to send it to OCZ Storage Solutions" quoted from the email.. If you build a product and offer a warranty, you should either back the product all the way or not bother at all.

After further contact with OCZ customer service, they said I should return the drive via either UPS or FEDEX so there is some type of tracking available, you got to be kidding me!!!! A fifty dollar bill to do that, and I can buy a new one from Amazon for $79.00. What a crock of feces...

If you buy one of these, be prepared to throw it away if it goes south,

Bought this SSD as a Christmas gift. I converted to and installed the drive in January. It ran well for about 30 days and then failed. Drive not even recognized by BIOS. Open return ticked with OCZ, promptly received RMA, and returned the defective drive for replacement. A refurbished drive was sent as a replacement. Installed that drive and it ran for about 30 minutes or so and failed with an I/O error followed again by drive not found. Installed the drive on a spare laptop just to be sure that it wasn't an issue with the machine I was using and the drive still would not function. Opened another ticket with OCZ with the new problem about 2 weeks ago and this time I have received no response at all to the open ticked. Going to try again but not happy at all with this experience. 0 for 2.

Had 3 (read that - 3) drives of this type and within a month all 3 reported SMART issues when I booted up my laptops (plural)

OCZ support was extremely lacking and they would not help me at all! All I wanted to do was get an RMA so they can look at it and they wouldn't even do that!!!

I strongly recommend you stay away from OCZ SSDs! I've been using Samsung and Intel now with no issues

Thanks

This Hard Drive failed on start up. It requested a password, I contacted OCZ, and was told it was defective, and were sorry for the inconvenience it may have called me. Put project behind schedule and return directions were a pain. Not sure I can recommend this to anyone.

This is the 6th or 7th SSD I've purchased an installed. Most in desktops and one into my laptop.

I purchased this drive to run my primary OS (Win7).a All other data is stored on different drives, so this crash (after 3 months) wasn't a problem. Took as long as Amazon to ship me a new Samsung SSD to be fixed. HOWEVER: If you store and run everything on a single drive with partitions DO NOT buy this until you've Googled "OCZ SSD failed SMART test" which in itself is both ironic and foretelling. The type of failures these drives suffer from requires a replacement unless you want to get a minor in Computer Science. When they replace it, you loose everything.

1 Star for dying after 3 months. Knowing customers have been complaining about their firmware for a long time and still putting out poorly QC'd product. After the hours of emails and tech support, I was given the pleasure of paying for shipping and packaging. All in all this was most expensive $130 I've ever spent.

2 stars because their customer support was quick and easy to get a replacement once it was determined the drive was faulty.

I'm sticking with Samsung. Have been running them in my systems around 2 years now and not a single problem.
