Pros
very fast stable drive
Cons
none other then ocz is always releasing firmware to improve performance, not all systems can flash and flashing firmware can be destructive to data
Summary
I have found this drive to be pretty stable, as I am always running test on this drive and hot swapping it in and out.


Each version of the firmware improved random performance. no complaints about that, other then i had to use my windows home server to flash the firmware as the sata controller in my pc wont show up the drive in the toolbox program to flash the firmware.


I had stability issues with Petrol right off the bat, but never with Octane, all versions of Octane firmware was stable, unlike the firmware for the Petrol which I ended up having to open a support ticked and then RMA the Petrol drive. Good news, OCZ gave me another Octane for the Petrol ;)


Oh ya, the Octane S2 is nothing like the Octane, the Octane 2 uses async flash like the Petrol and the Octane s2 should be known as the Petrol S2 instead since its the sata 2 version.

the Octane has really good random performance compared to my intel 320 drive.


I am currently using the Octane in HDDboost to speed up my hard drive.

Wish the Octane was cheaper. notice the price is still stuck at $190. Instead they are selling Octane s2 as low end, not selling Octane and Petrol has been discontinued because of large corruption failures due to crappy firmware. So there is not really a good low end option to Vertex 4 unless you want a Vertex 3, but not all people like vertex 3/Agility 3 style drive due to bsods bugs and a bad rap. Vertex 4 is the way to go. Its funny ocz denies that the Petrol is discontinued as the firmware status is still active, so maybe they recalled all Petrols and reflash them and they will be coming out again, since petrol failures was like 4 out of 10. I tested the new firmware before sending in the rma, and the new firmware fixed the problem, but not all end users have the pc or still to flash the drive.

Pros
Fast. Decent price per GB
Cons
No 3.5in mounting bracket.
Summary
I've been using Vertex 2 and 3 SSDs for my own computers for a while now. Picked this up on sale for a buddy and so far I am very impressed.

Speed is excellent (as you'd expect from an SSD).

We put two partitions on the drive, one NTFS for a Windows (7) install and one EXT4 for a Linux (Debian) install - both partitions aligned. Performance is excellent in both.

Only downside is it does not come with a 3.5 in mounting bracket, so if your case doesn't have a mount for a 2.5 in drive you will need to buy a bracket or rig something up (cable ties work well enough).

Comment: For now it looks like the Octane is a good solution for typical desktop users, even at its 128GB capacity. Performance in those tests is once again competitive with SandForce drives. It's in write heavy workloads that the reduction in number of available NAND die penalizes the Octane.
