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. It reboots faster than our router can reconnect to FiOS after a blip. I have not yet had a single fault, OS X curtain, or read/write error, and I'm a super-power user.
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. Except for the drive, which was RMA'd. Fast forward to three months later, new example of the same drive with latest firmware. Exact same thing happened.
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. This will cause OS X to kernel panic and eventually the disk permissions will become corrupt and I am forced to erase and reimage my MacBook.

Summary: I replaced my main hard drive on my MacBook Pro with this SSD. Although it may not be the largest drive, it is more than sufficient for the operating system along with all my applications. The laptop boots in about 8 seconds from a cold start and programs open up extremely rapidly as well. A great product with a consumer friendly price.
