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.
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,
I'm really happy with this product.
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.
The first drive I got (August 2013) worked great for about two weeks, just enough time to get everything installed and working well. Then it failed...miserably. No warning, either; I shut it down once, and next time I tried to boot it wasn't even recognized by the system. Utterly dead. Since SSDs can be fickle, I gave OCZ the benefit of the doubt, and the fact that it was still within Amazon's return window was super convenient. I got a new one sent to me (September 2013), and everything seemed to be going ok.
Same thing happens again (February 2014). Exactly the same thing. I was using my computer one night, shut it down, and the next day the drive was dead. No warnings, no misbehavior, no oddly corrupted files or random errors; 100% one day, 0% the next. Unfortunately, I'll be stuck dealing with OCZ's RMA process, and my faith in that is, understandably, a bit weak.
Stay away from this drive, and until Toshiba manages to prove themselves as reliable stewards of the brand, OCZ in general.
