Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Boot

Boot:
"I cannot recommend this drive, but I 100% recommend switching to an SSD for your boot drive, and Samsung has my vote, so far."
_
"Like many others here, I've had many problems with the drive -- I now have to boot my computer 4-5 times before the BIOS recognizes the drive."
_
"I have a Macbook Pro, and since there was no boot disk, there was this odd glitch that made it take 2 hours to boot into recovery."
_
"Didnt have time to deal with it, came back the next day tried to boot that machine and the drive was dead, bios no longer recognized the drive."
_
"My drive lasted 6 months then failed to boot up."
_
"Boot into bios everything looks good, reset my boot sequence so I can boot off the dvd drive, reboot, the drive is gone, no longer recognized by the bios... granted the motherboards do not have AHCI support but that shouldn't matter all the drives had the most up to date firmware versions from the start and should have worked fine, if not to full complicity, in IDE mode."
_
"In the past 6 months we have purchased 5 of these over 4 different orders because of the great speed and decreased boot time."
_
"It's a really easy fix that will allow it to boot."

Firmware

Firmware:
"Never got it to work for more than eight hours -most of the time it was for 30 minutes to an hourOddly enough, I could install Win7 64bit about 70% of the time but when I would attempt to update the firmware I either got a message saying something like No OCZ product found or the BIOs would not recognize the drive or it would kick out a BSOD."
_
"I know some Mac users were having problems updating the firmware because it requires a PC in order to install the new firmware."
_
"I first wanted to see if there were any firmware updates that would fix the problem."
_
"Due to my drive being unresponsive, I cannot say what version firmware it came with, but it is pre 1.29 and the drive was shipped to me early Jan 2011."
_
"Until they fix their firmware, I can't recommend this product."
_
"Turns out that the time warp issue is correlated with using the sleep function on a laptopa recommended tool to fix the problem until the firmware is debugged, and thought I was good until a fix came out for the drive wrt sleep."
_
"Easy to update firmware and for a SATA II interface this thing is fast."
_
"After upgrading the firmware I thought I was good to go, but then 6 months later the drive would no longer power up, it was completely dead."
_
"I would definitely recommend updating to the latest version of the firmware which is updated frequently since OCZ is actually quite receptive to their customers (although the upgrade process on a Mac is somewhat of a hassle since you have to boot into a Windows LiveCD environment to run their Windows only firmware updating software)."
_
"This is how I updated my firmware and I did not lose any information, though they will recommend you have a backup just in case."
_
"Turns out that the time warp issue is correlated with using the sleep function on a laptopa recommended tool to fix the problem until the firmware is debugged, and thought I was good until a fix came out for the drive wrt sleep."

Installation

Installation:
"The worst 2 hours spent on installing windows."
_
"I was so wrong, after installing this in my 2006 !"
_
"The only downside was that I was installing it into a Lenovo x120e, which is a dual core AMD Fusion-based chipset machine which means it's a tad slower than a normal machine."
_
"These come with their own challenges (but were surprisingly minor for this project).Drive installation details follow."
_
"Installation was easy and performance was incredible... until one day when my computer could no longer boot up because the drive couldn't be detected."
_
"Installation was easy and I have had no problems."
_
"flawless installation and no problems."
_
"i bought mine in january, and after installing it in my new Lenovo laptop, i was a happy owner of this Vertex drive, until 3 weeks later, when it abruptly died."
_
"The speed difference is incredible, installation was a breeze, and a pleasant side effect is that my desktop is now whisper quiet."

Power

Power:
"Had a small power glitch at home and it caused the drive to enter a panic locked state, which basically bricks the drive, requiring you to send it to OCZ to have all of your data wiped and have the firmware of the drive reset."
_
"My OCZ history, I have purchased a 700 w power supply from ocz; dead after 10 months, 2 rally flash drives that fell apart and required super glue."
_
"After upgrading the firmware I thought I was good to go, but then 6 months later the drive would no longer power up, it was completely dead."
_
"One problem I noticed is that when it was connected to a power cable that had a 4pin Molex to SATA adapter it would seem to hang during the WIN 7 splash screen and not be recognized after a re-boot."
_
"Now passing a bit more than 5 weeks after purchase, one of the 60GB also failed (intermitent failure, it runs for 1 to 5 minutes after power up).However their speed are a blast I recomend (as I did) you to not save any important data on these drives (without constant backup)."
_
"I really appreciate its snappiness and low power consumption."
_
"After changing the PSU to one that had sufficient SATA Molex power plugs the drive has worked great."
_
"Now passing a bit more than 5 weeks after purchase, one of the 60GB also failed (intermitent failure, it runs for 1 to 5 minutes after power up).However their speed are a blast I recomend (as I did) you to not save any important data on these drives (without constant backup)."
_
"SSDs are fast, durable, silent, and take a bit less power."

Price

Price:
"I bought this drive from a different site when NAND prices were plummeting, I was a bit wary of the drive due to all the prior failures being reported but for the price I couldn't help but take a chance."
_
"That is just downright unacceptable for a piece of technology at this price."
_
"And more than likely you will replace the drive before you encounter a problem as prices fall and reliability increases."
_
"The only complain is about price and capacity, maybe we'll see a price drop in coming months for this technology to become a de facto in storage."
_
"It's a bit on the small size, but for the price, I have no complaints."
_
"This is my 3rd OCZ drive and so far I have had nothing but great performance at a great price from them."
_
"Great SSD for the price."
_
"For weeks I had seen good prices and every time I said no way, not worth the risk."
_
"The OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G is well worth the extra money you would pay over a standard hard drive."
_
"I'm not sure if I just got a good one or what but I would recommend this if you need a fast cheap SDD"
