The SSD Advantage
Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.
Solid State Drives feature a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards, shock resistant up to 1500g. Hard disk drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage.
SSDs have 100 times greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot-ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives. HDDs can only access the data faster the closer it is from the read/ write heads, while all parts of the SSD can be accessed at once.
Less Power Consumption, Silent Operation, and Lightweight
SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard disk drives--less than 2W versus 6W for an HDD--delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment. With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment. And SSDs won't weigh down your laptop, netbook, or tablet PC when you're on the go.
SSDs run much cooler than hard disk drives...
...and much quieter, too.

To get this drive to the point of proper operation was a huge headache. I purchased this device because of its price. For the size and speed of this disk, it is the best priced unit on the market. When I purchased the drive, I knew that there was a firmware/freezing/BSOD issue. Because I'm above average when it comes to technology, I figured I would be able to overcome these hurdles with relative ease. I was wrong. It took a ton of learning, reading, and frustration to get this unit functioning -- and even now, it is not 100%. The 20 or 30 dollars you may save with this device is not worth it, in my opinion. In an effort to save all of you some hassle though, here's what worked for me:
Two things to do. Update the firmware to 2.11 and change your SATA Controller driver. You may want to change the driver first, or else the OCZ firmware technology may not work properly.
1. Your Windows Driver. In Windows 7, go in to Device Manager>IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers>SATA Controller.
Right click it and pull up properties, then "driver" tab. Are you running the Microsoft driver (msahci)? If so, try the Intel SATA AHCPI driver instead. Google "Intel AHCI 10.8.0.1003" [edited to reference newest driver] and download the driver. Install it for your SATA controller by going back in to device manager, opening the driver for the sata controller, and updating the driver by pointing windows to the folder with the intel driver.Read more ›
It was very easy to install and worked right outta the box. Loads Win7 64 pro quickly and also Dragon NS, which takes a minute to load on a 2-year-old box with XP. Because of rapid boot and program loading, I turn my computer off now between uses. I left my old one on 16/7 because it would otherwise take 3-4 minutes to get to readiness with both OS and programs.
I had one instance where the BIOS would not recognize the drive during bootup after Windows 7 64pro froze. My research shows a very obscure cause for this, having to do with low power management features of the OS. I have not had any BSODs nor has the freeze been replicated, so I am taking no action, but apparently OCZ has released firmware 2.09 to address the problem. Remember that the drive's firmware cannot be updated while it is a boot drive, so once you have installed OS and updates, it is very inconvenient to start over just to upgrade firmware. Use the secure wipe feature of OCZ toolbox before upgrading firmware. Better yet, check the firmware and upgrade before intalling this as a boot drive.
I bought brand new components to build a new PC so everything was new. I had just installed Win7 Enterprise 64 bit on my new OCZ SSD (first time using a SSD) and as soon as I would log in to Windows a few minutes later everything started to slow down, desktop icons would Disappear and it would freeze up and right after I got a BLUE SCREEN of DEATH (BSOD).
Since everything was new on my PC I started testing all the major components to see where the (BSOD) issue was coming from until I got to the SSD and I saw that this was the BSOD issue.
My new motherboard Asus P8z68V Pro bios recognize the SSD with no issues.
Checked the forums and OCZ forum and they were saying to upgrade the firmware (what's new they all say that) so I did that and upgraded to version 2.15. And I did it twice in different times to ensure the upgrade was successfully. And I got both times the confirmation that the upgrade was successful.
I start seeing that in the forums all over a bunch of people were having the same type of problem that I was and I started to have a "bad feeling about this."
I tried to reinstall Windows 7 after the firmware update and when I get to the part of window installation that ask you to select the hard drive that you want to install I selected it and clicked next and when Windows starts to upload the installation files and have a percentage status info to show it would hang on 0% and after that I would get the following:
" Windows cannot be installed to this disk the computer's hardware may not support boot into this disk...Read more ›
