I ordered eight of these SSDs to replace the mechanical drives in the notebooks of our most mobile users. Out of these drives, one failed right out of the box. I realize new hardware sometimes arrives with issues so I simply sent it back for a new one.

After installing the first one, I was astounded by the speed of these drives and very happy with the results. I promptly installed the rest of the drives in the other user's systems and everything seemed to go great.

Two weeks later, I had a user come to me with his system because he was getting a 'non-system disk or disk error' message. The computer was no longer detecting the drive in the system. I took it out and connected it to my desktop as a secondary drive. Nope, nothing there. I finally attached it to a USB adapter and still nothing. The drive was dead. Before the end of that week, I had two more failures identical to the first.

I contacted OCZ for support and told them the issue. I asked if there was anything I could do to get the computer to recognize the drive so I could recover some of the information. They promptly told me they could replace the drives but I would have to use a third party to try to recover the data. They didn't even answer my question or attempt any troubleshooting.

I've sent the drives in for RMA replacement but I simply don't trust their drives at this point. So far as I'm concerned, these drives are time bombs just waiting for another failure. I was fortunate in that I kept the user's old hard drives and was able to recover their data up until the point where I switched them to the SSD but all the new data was lost.

I put this guy in my 2007 macbook and wow! Installation was a breeze and once it was format I was shocked at the speed. Programs and documents load incredibly fast! now i did research and these were highly rated and speed was very fast. I also learned though that SSD's should not be filled past 80 percent capacity otherwise speed will slow to a crawl so be warned.

I bought this SSD about 5 months ago, but i'm using it only two months. I've been reading all the reviews, and of course, i'm very worried about how long it will work. Unfortanely, to keep my files, i bought an external hard drive to backup my files weekly.

Well, while it's working, i can tell you that impossible to return to the old hard drives again. I installed my ssd on an old vostro 1000 from dell computer and it's absolutely amazing the new speed and your new relation with your hardware. The speed is amazing.

I hope all the reviews don't come true! Except for the feeling that you could wake up and when you decided to turn on your desktop or notebook you won't get, i recommended the ssd technology and this ssd hard drive.

I bought 12 of these to upgrade some old systems. My 6th one failed today so I felt the need to get online and complain about OCZ reliability.

I have also have 15 Kingston 128gb drives that are older than these. All 15 Kingston drives (knock on wood) are still working great. The only reason I started buying OCZ is because they were cheaper at the time. I guess I got what I paid for.

Easy to install - INCLUDES rails to install it in a standard 3.5" bay in a desktop. Wish that had been specified originally. It sped up my old Core2Duo quite a bit and worked well for 3.5 months. Then it failed completely. Computer would no longer recognize the drive. Just started the warranty process - will update this review with results from that.

If your looking to increase the speed of your computer, this is by far one the best upgrades you can get. Most people think of more processors and/or more RAM for a speed boost, but most of the time that just gives you more multi-tasking ability.

Changing from hard disk drives to solid state drives, like this OCZ drive, is a real speed increase.

Boots are much fast, application loads, and everything in between has sped up.

I have this as my boot-drive and only install important applications on this drive. All other applications are installed on a secondary designated hard disk drive.

The only problem was the installation was a bit of a puzzle. It didnt take too long, but I had to do a bit of research to get the Operating System to install on this badboy. Some people are lucky and its just plug-and-play for them.

Anyways, great product!!!

People aren't joking when you read online that you can boot Windows 7 in like 19seconds. Holy Cow.

Applications are a breeze on this thing, just works, period.

If you're a first time buyer like me I highly recommend checking out:

Check out the Optimization Guide, really good read, even if you don't have a SSD yet can give you an edge on your HHD setup at the moment.

Otherwise great product, I cashed in on my rebate since I bought it back in April.

Thanks OCZ and Amazon. It's a good day.
