Spent more time waiting for replacements then actually using them.

Summary: I bought 2 of these and put them in raid 0. I RMA'd one twice and the other 3 times. I could not get a single one to last more then 6 months on any of the 5 SSD's I had from OCZ, Never buying them again.
Summary: I bought this item to replace my Lenovo X60 hard disk and it did not work. We tried to do a new install and even re ghost it using my old hard disk but still no success. My friend bought it and using it as a back-up hard disk.
Summary: Simply said, I couldn't resist. The reviews here on Amazon and all other sites where reviews are submitted by owners were pretty poor on this product but the speeds that people were reporting were just unreal. Reviewers bragged about it and so I went for it. A week went well and then, nothing.
Summary: Recently purchased 2 of these drives for a striped setup. Initially purchased an Adaptec 6805 ($500) to obtain sata3 specs. For some reason while running system I would get a array failure and then BSOD (known issue with vertex 2 and now vertex 3 has inherited the same issue) didnt discover till...
Summary: I have this drive as my primary boot drive on a Windows 7 x64 installation with an Intel chipset, and this drive will randomly "disappear", causing windows to crash, and upon rebooting, the drive is missing.
Summary: I had read the reviews and heard of problems with these drives, but bought one anyway, hoping to avoid them. I didn't. After about 30 days, the drive stopped responding. Luckily, I just had my OS/programs installed on it, so no valuable data was lost.
Summary: This is by far the worst drive I have ever used. It failed within a month. I had not even set up my new computer fully with the GPUs and aftermarket CPU cooler before it failed. Delayed me so much in building my PC.
Bad Techincal Support / No Firmware Upgrades for Mac

Summary: I have to say that this drive is at least 2x faster than the Intel SSD that I also own. That said, the drive pulls a lot more power than the Intel SSD. (3 Watts) which is .600 Amps. My original 7000 RPM 500Gig Seagate only pulls .451 Amps, and it's a high-performance drive.
Summary: i bought two 120 GB vertex 3 SSD's, but they wouldn't work on my system. Gigabyte UD7 mobo, high quality components, windows 7 64 bit. One wouldn't turn on at all, the other one couldn't be seen by the windows installation.
