Setup a refund for one of them today. One is still sitting at 100% health while the other one is already down to 84%.

Have one of these on the way. Will let you guys know how it goes.

Personally though, I'm just using the drive as storage for things like games. Even my samsung drive only has about 15TB written total in more than 3 years, and that's with using a pagefile on it too. All I really need is something to read from at a reasonable speed.

I think even if these drives are half used up, they would still be a decent buy because they'd still have the longevity matching or surpassing that of a new SSD.

Some say they're old stock, others say they're used. I do hear that refurbished SSD's have their SMART data Zeroed out. So it's difficult to tell how used these SSD's actually are.

If I had to take a guess, it's that a company upgraded their systems and these drives can range from barely used to heavy use, or that someone simply found an old box of stock they forgot about or lost, or OCZ themselves had a bunch of old returned stock that was either repaired or still good that they sold off. They could have been in anything from a hardly used office computer to a server room. They could even just be extras that were never needed.

They probably clean these drives up, but unless they do a full drive rewrite with random data, there would still be data to recover from them if they were used.

My stock is coming from Indiana, I ordered it just yesterday morning and it's already out for delivery today!

Nah, the warranties are garbage. If you look, the stipulation is that if they don't/can't replace the item in 5 days or less, they refund the cost of the warranty only. It's basically a scam. This means they never have to replace anything, and just sit back and make money off of the protection packages that are never redeemed.

Considering how old these drives are, and how they're not even in circulation anymore, it's basically impossible for them to replace them in 5 days, and I doubt they'd be willing to spend more than a hundred dollars for an equivalent drive. It's just not practical to believe they would do anything to replace the drive at all, when they can simply refund you the cost of the warranty.

So I spent a while taking my system apart to get a heatsink in, and was finally able to setup the drive. First of all, I had to go to windows computer management settings to recognize the drive and format it. Thankfully I already knew that, I expect some people would have trouble knowing what to do.

So I updated the firmware, nothing out of the ordinary with the drive or its smart data.

Ran a benchmark, and it is somewhat higher than El_Capitans. Of course, this may be down to motherboard or whatever else, but they are a bit more in some areas than even simple acceptable tolerances. Although the second row of benches are nearly identical.



Personally, I'm very happy with these speeds and size at the price I paid....as long as it continues to function.

I'm not sure if they're being greedy. A week after I ordered mine, they actually had it marked down by $5 less.

confused.gif Huh? How is $3.75 cheaper being greedy?

Wish I had seen this before I bought a 240 gig drive for my mom a few weeks ago.
Too much of a hassle to get her laptop back and swap it all over.

I said above I used the wrong term, but they raised the price so their discount seems like a deal, same crap companies have been doing on steam lately. The price after the discount is what they cost before the sale.
