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.

performance
Faster Performance

SSDs have 100x greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.



speed
Cost-Effectiveness

Because many HDDs are needed to achieve the same performance, SSDs offer greater cost effectiveness for IOPS per dollar.



durability
Greater Durability

The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards are shock resistant up to 1500g, unlike HDDs with various moving parts.



power
Less Power

SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard drives, delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment.



sound
Silent Operation

With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment.

This drive is one of the fastest drives you can buy . Not just max performance, but all around performance with all different file types and work loads. All the reviews sites rave about it and for good reason. I was actually surprised at the quality of the build. OCZ went with a metal case to help with heat (I'd assume) and so the drive actually feels more 'solid' (sounds stupid but that was my impression when I took it out of the box).

I bought this on Newegg but I thought I'd share here since the drive is so brand new.

I bought one of these via Amazon, first one died extremely quickly due to firmware corruption which causes the drive to not be detected by any means. OCZ has put out a firmware update to fix this issue, so whatever you do, make sure the first thing you do is update the firmware.

The drive worked fine for about 6 months and then it died completely. OCZ will not honor a warranty for an item purchased through Amazon. They will tell you “The limited warranty applies only to products purchased through an authorized retailer and only for the original purchaser of the product. Second hand sales are not covered under the warranty.” They claim Amazon is not an authorized dealer therefor will not honor any warranty.

I had 3 of these drives fail in sequence of both 128GB and 256GB in size. Seems like bad QC, bad chip run, or bad firmware. It wasn't until the 4th drive on an RMA return (not retail replace as the others had been) that I got a good working drive.

Purchased this on Thursday Last week, ETA from Amazon on 2 day shipping was Monday Dec 3rd. I love it when Amazon gets you your shipment in 24hrs and that's exactly what happened. As far as the product goes everything ran smooth as silk. I installed windows 7 ultimate 64bit in aprox 15 minutes and had all my drivers and necessary software up in about an hour. Boot times are fantastic, 5 seconds to shutdown and 15 to boot from Bios screen to Desktop and when the Desktop loads everything is immediately accessible. Applications Instantly open and I gained aprox 15 FPS on Planetside 2. Hope this is helpful, this is a great product and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Sadly this was too good to last. After 3 months of Use, the SSD started causing the Computer to hang and then Restart to a CHKDSK finding corrupted files and orphaned files forcing a fresh install of windows to get my games to work. 1 week later after then 2nd install of windows the same thing started happening in the process or RMA the equipment to OCZ. Hopefully it was just defective will update with new SDD. knocked down 2 stars for the hassle.

2nd drive KIA in 1 month, updated Firmware as recommended, windows not even installed and drive failed again.

you get what you pay for getting a Samsung 250GB 840 as they cost 30 bucks more and I know I get something that works.

Stay away from this drive.

Final update to this review. I now use my OCZ vector as a door stop. It works fantastic for that purpose. I am at least getting some use out of the product. I purchased a Samsung 250 840 Pro. I have had no issues, it works better that I expected and has been going strong for over a year.

When I began to have a problem with this drive, I approached the manufacturer. It is 2 years into a 5 year warranty.
Without looking at it I am being told it was user abuse...HUH? They won't issue an RMA. I realized the data corruption was
likely do to a manufacturing defect in the Sata connector...it fits snugly but doesn't clip. The fact they won't issue an RMA is appalling, Just look at it to make a determination. Shame on them.

I'm an OCZ fan since the early days. They are known among computer enthusiasts who build their own systems. Memory, Power supplies, overclocking and all that. Then, when the SSD emerged, they pushed hard to be the leader - and they were certainly the biggest name in SSD storage. Two years ago, i converted all my computers to use SSD, mostly the OCZ Agility series.

From time to time, i had issues, and dealing with OCZ was a pleasure - fill out a form, get an RMA, send it in, and get a replacement. I accepted that in those days, SSDs were far less reliable that hard drives, but the performance bump was undeniable.

Then, SATA2 was replaced with SATA3, and after a computer upgrade, it was time to buy all new SSDs, because SATA3 enabled another huge bump in performance. I bought Agility 3s (but avoided Agiligy 4s for known performance problems)

Then came the Vector. Again, one of the fastest SSD out there. OCZ always had the best controller chips (I think they ended up purchasing Indilinx) and they led the pack. By this time OCZ had become a very different company - its CEO had moved in, and OCZ reinvented itself as a storage company, with the Enterprise market in their sights.

For me, the Vector has been a disaster. Within the first few months, I started to get bad sectors. When it came time to RMA it, i found that OCZ will no longer do advance replacement (you give credit card, and they ship out the replacement in advance, so you have no down-time waiting for the replacement) - so I waited. The new Vector came, and all was good again.

Until it wasn't. I started to get corrupted o/s files appearing every 2 days, and fixed by chkdsk.
