Decentish price but their CS is appalling. Myself and many others have had issues with their RAM which may explain their announcement that they are pulling out of RAM market. I doubt their SSD's will be much better than their RAM tbh:


BTW also remember when something does go wrong you have to go via their Web Forum which is Slow and long winded.

thats ram and this is a hardrive with good reviews

My first one of these failed to be regognised by my BIOS within a couple of days. After stuggling to get a sensible answer from them via their forums, I RMA'd it which meant sending to Holland (at my expense). A replacement was sent from Aisa via Kazakhstan. Took around 2 weeks in total.

The new one has been faultless though and lightning fast - best upgrade I've ever made. My experience has tainted by the poor RMA process for UK customers and a constant fear of it failing again soon . . .

I've got one of these - never looked back, gonna get this one for my lappy I think. Thanks OP

Few pounds more, SATA 3 on your motherboard and you can enjoy Agility 3 which is available since today (18/05) for 99quid:

AGT3-25SAT3-60G - 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD, 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s, SandForce 2281, Read 525MB/s, Write 475MB/s, 50K IOPS


I am with Pablomalin. My friend has just had the Agility 3. Says it's stupidly fast. Really tempted to get the 120GB Agility 3 drive now.
