I have no chance of getting any money back from this purchase as I've owned it for longer than 30 days and OCZ wouldn't cover the cost of sending the broken drives to be replaced which wasn't cheap.
The performance from the drive was great... while it lived it's short life.
I used Acronis to copy my existing C drive onto the new SSD - [...]
Was an effortless transfer so props to Acronis for making such a good product!
Also definitely read this: [...] - very useful stuff there.#
Buy it now!
The numerous seconds (and then some) the disk saved throughout is short life were then wasted reinstalling software, retrieving backups, and dealing with licensing issues (since a disk failure like this doesn't allow for doing a license transfer with software like Maya, etc.).
A previous 60gig OCZ drive I installed failed but then came back to life when removed and installed in an external drive bay.
No such luck so far with this one.
Online commenters talk a lot about a controller chip from Sandforce being to blame and suggest buying SSD drives that do not use this chip inside.
It's very disappointing because performance boost using these SSDs was amazing, then with no warning signs, drive not recognised.
If you do get one of these, use it as a boot drive where it will really improve responsiveness of system, but keep a regular backup and keep precious data somewhere else.
The drive performed very well until it failed. I replaced a 5400rpm SATA in a laptop so noticed a huge difference. Of course it was silent and generated less heat. Battery life was improved and the fan ran less in my laptop. I was very happy.
Two months later, the drive failed catastrophically and I lost all my data. Even with good backups, the inconvenience when this happens is huge. To make matters worse, the experience I had with the OCZ support was poor. It is a ticket based system where you deal with a remote technician via messages posted on a web page. On average, they take 1-2 days to get back to each message that I post.
The final insult, I have to pay to ship the broken drive to the Netherlands before it can be replaced.
I strongly advise you stay well clear of these because your hard disk is such an important part of your computer, you need to trust it is reliable and you need to know that if you have a problem, you can easily resolve it.
