Summary: I. will never. use a regular hard drive.. again. Put your operating system on this puppy and use the rusty platters for storage. You'll never have a speed issue. I've had this unit for well over a year and I'm having no issues with it.. and I haven't even updated the firmware.
Summary: Wanted to use this for just Microsoft Windows 8.1 install. But; many things I installed filled the 120 gig space up very fast. Use it in my new computer as second drive, About a month after I bought it Vertex 4 came out, then 'Barefoot controller' came out.
Summary: Worked well for a month then failed. OCZ were MOST UNHELPFUL with warranty, received it back after a couple of months, NOT FIXED. Very disappointed... Have been buying INTEL since then...... no failures, no problems. Note... Other OCZ SSD's that I have are working OK.
Summary: I purchased this drive from Tiger Direct in December 2012 to put in my Mac Mini server, replacing one of the two internal drives. Boot times went from 6min (with all apps I use open and all working tabs open - we get power blips a lot) down to 59s.
Summary: I had one of these for about a year. I restored a Windows 7 x64 disk image from a few days previous and the SSD failed catastrophically. The PC would not even get past the BIOS recognition of the SSD. Unplugged it, put the image on a mechanical hard drive and all was well.
Summary: I have a 2012 13" MacBook Pro (OS X 10.8.3) and I bought the 240GB Vertex 3Max IOPS SSD drive for it. Firmware is latest version with 2.25. Besides random freezes and reboots, I can consistently get a forced reboot just by connecting an external drive to it and doing a file transfer.
