Summary: I have always been happy with OCZ products. First time I ever had problems with any, but also first time I bought refurbished drives.
Pros: Cheap for SSD
Cons: Have been having issues with data corruption since I started using these. Registry has gotten corrupted 3 times now and other random files have corrupted. Installed windows twice so far. Just got in new cables yesterday so will see how this goes. Also not getting speeds posted. On both one drive ...
Summary: Failed few times as part of raid 0. After one year failed completely. Other drive is still working. Bios can't see it anymore. Customer service wouldn't accept warranty exchange w/o original receipt even though I forwarded them their dated email-answer on rebate application.
Summary: I really want this one to work like the others but we will see!!
Pros: I have 3 of these, this one is the only one I bought from a store. this is the only one that died in 20 days. gave it 3 eggs because the others all work fine. its fast and normally they work awesome, neweggs sending a replacement. I expect it to work fine, but if not then I will know the quality ...
Cons: like I said it died in 20 days ,could be a con or just a bad one got through, we will see with the replacement!!
Summary: It was a replacement for a similar unit that we had die in a machine. Other units got the Vertex 4 equivalent. Both function properly the better performance of the Vertex 4 means that it really isn't worth getting the Vertex 3 anymore.
Summary: Overall, when this drive is working, it works great. WAY faster than any of my old HDDs. If the issues that I'm running into are worked out, then I would be a 5 star happy camper.
Pros: Very quick drive, exactly as much storage as I need for a very reasonable price.
Cons: Fairly regularly, my BIOS will not see the drive. Usually I have to reboot the computer and reconfigure my BIOS to boot to the SSD by default, once it decides to be detected again. Additionally, every time I install Windows Updates, they fail after the reboot and roll themselves back (Windows 8)....
Summary: If you're building a PC. Be sure that you test these types of items very early on (if possible). Otherwise you will end of with a full build and no ability to install your OS.
Pros: The OCZ Vertex 3 is a beautiful item. I heard it does what it is advertized. The OCZ Tech/Customer Service was very happy to replace the item.
Cons: Came to me DOA. Who can say how it became a useless piece of metal, could have been careless handling or storage by NewEgg, the shippers, or just a $#@ from day one... Im not going to point fingers.
Fast, decently priced; but Mac users, beware of caveats

Summary: This is my first SSD. After reading through so very many reviews on Amazon, NewEgg, TigerDirect and various forums, I decided to got with this via Amazon's Warehouse Deals due to pricing and capacity. Price was right, shipment was quick, as is the drive. A noticeable difference.
Blindingly FAST Speeds--The 2nd Time Around -1st One FAILED!

Summary: First, the good news: OCZ has fixed the Sandforce 2281 controller in notebook environments, apparently, as my SSD use is an example of that: It's installed in an Asus G73SW-3DE laptop with the 6GB/sec SATA 3 interface.
