Experience: 5 Years

Back in the day!


Back in the day, $100 for 60GB was a good deal!
The transition from HDD to SSD was AMAZING.
Booted windows in <15s
Loaded games in no-time
small size.
More than $1 per gb.
What a difference it made in my computing life switching from spinning platters to this. Everything was snappier. I didn't expect this big of a change relative to upgrading RAM, CPU, GPU but this was the gold standard for upgrades.

Experience: 2 Years


Fast, Affordable, Reliable
I have been using this SSD now for about 2 years and I haven't had any problems with it at all. I am using it for my OS and my HDD for games and media. 60GB is small, yes, but for just having OS and some applications on it is perfect.

Experience: 2 Years


Fast, reliable, well priced
Great drive. I replaced my Agility with this and it's been solid for 2 years now.

Experience: 1 Years


Fast/ Small/ Quiet/ low energy/ all standard features of ssd's/ Cheap/ Quick RMA
Bought two of these drives (1 laptop/ 1 desktop) and the one in my laptop dies within 2 months of normal use
Fast drive at the time of purchase but unrealiabilty of drive forces me to only use it in raid 1

Experience: 2 Years


Fast on windows xp
died after a month of usage on win7.
Giving it 1star, but my order is too old for ncix to recognize : 30016226, so it's way convenient for them not to allow a 1star review.

I used the drive on a winxp laptop for 6 months - the performance improvement was huge.
Then a didn't use the drive for a while, and now i'm using it on win7 64-bit desktop. Not much difference with a regular drive.
The drive died after a month of usage - red and green light.

Experience: 1 Years


Fast, Small, Good for the price
Slows downs, sucks on amd
It is a fast drive until you start to fill it like any other drive. It is small enough that it fits anywhere, also it comes with the mounting rack which is very handy. It also does not work very well on AMD because the TRIM feature does not work you have to find a program to TRIM/Clean it or leave it on idle for a long time. I have not had any other different type of SSD's so I can not compare them...I would like to get a different SSD to compare.

Experience: 2 Years


fast ssd, OCZ update  firmware often
SSD drive failure at 2 years of life
This SSD drive have a good performance at first, but rapidly the perfomance decrease and I experiment a "boot disk failure" at two years of life. OCZ have replace the defective unit (very good customer service) but I have loose some data with this failure.

Experience: 2 Months


- very fast drive
- really small so it fits almost anywhere in my HTPC
- super easy to setup
- bios had lots of trouble detecting it
I would say overall this drive is a must have however I had issues with mine not being detected by my computers bios. I am in the process of going through an RMA for it. I would definitely but one of these again as the other one I bought works perfectly and never had an issue with it. I think I just got a bad one. OCZ products have always been super reliable for me.

good value for SSD
the vertex 2 is the old model (new vertex 3) but still good to use
bought one of these initially to replace a 200GB ide drive for my parents. now on to a new system and bought 2 more of the same model with a msi p67a-g43 mobo to use raid 5 (111GB capacity now) . i dont want to have to be doing more tech support on there computer and hopefully this setup (along with a UPS) will keep their system completely crash free and data loss free for years to come. don't forget to update  the firmwares if you can.

Experience: 60 Days


Very fast starting up Win7, running lightroom, Sony Vegas Pro 10.
Drive failures.
Mine stopped working after only 7 months. OCZ RMA'd it but I refuse to put it back in. Too many horror stories with these drives. I do not want to do that again.

replaced with Kingston V100 - not quite as fast but hopefully no failures. Have also heard the OCZ are also not as fast as 1st gen drives.
