Not problem free,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: OCZ VTX3-25SAT3-240G 240GB Vertex SATA III Internal 2.5 Inch SSD (Personal Computers)
I bought this item to rescue a failing harddrive containing a Ubuntu 10.04 distribution. Due to a lack of 6GB Sata Ports on my motherboard, and no free x4 PCIe slot I had to use a 3GB Sata port. The SSD consistently failed to work reliably on the motherboard ports, typically either saying the partition did not exist, or was not recognisable and in one case giving me an extra partition I had not created. It would usually fail half way through a benchmark read test. Eventually problem solved by installing a JMicron 3GB Sata card in a spare x1 PCIe slot.
I would also caution anyone thinking of buying this NOT to take up Amazon's 'suggestion' that you also purchase an adaptor to mount this unit in a standard 3.5" slot. I nearly did this at a cost of £6 when in fact the SSD comes with an adaptor pre-packaged.
