Just a heads up on this model. When the 240gb version was on sale a while back, I grabbed 6 of them for customers. OCZ has been a really good bargain brand for a while, so I trusted this. Well, of the 6 I put out in the field, 3 failed within the first week. the drives were not even being recognized as existing by the system BIOS/UEFI. OCZ's online RMA process was painless and they cross shipped new drives quickly, so no complaint there. I just figured it was a bad batch or something. Well, the 3 replacements were installed and within a week 2 of them showed the same symptom!!! Just dead! Again OCZ processed the RMA quickly and crossed shipped new drives (they covered shipping in all cases) but I'm not putting those drives back in play. I grabbed a pair of PNYs to replace the 2 replacement failures, and I'm scared to death about the other 4 I have out in the field. If you go with these drives, ensure that your backups are working properly, especially for the first couple weeks.

Any common elements among those machines where these failing drives were installed? Same motherboard for all or different? Same power supply? Any difference in usage patterns, if known; i.e., machines are put into sleep mode vs. shut down? If memory serves, mx100s had some sleep issues where a drive would disappear from BIOS.

Nothing at all in common. Asus and Gigabyte boards, plus one Dell machine. It is. not a sleep issue either...the were not recognized back on my bench in a USB/SATA cradle, nor by the hot swap slot. I did a little research and found a few other reports of similar issues as well. The fact the OZC processed the RMAs very quickly with little to no interaction tells me that this is something they are seeing with this model. Anecdotal evidence is not indicative of everyone's experience, I understand, but I just wanted to lay that out there for everyone. I will definitely buy OCZ products in the future, just not this model.

Pass. Yes it still beats a hard drive, but it's hard to shell out this much cash for arguably the worst performance on the market now: http://www.anandtech.com/show/940...-review/11

I purchased this about a month ago and it came DOA. No trouble getting my money back from Newegg but it slowed down my build some. I'm tempted by the $240 but it's just not worth it.
