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: 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.
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.
Summary: I bought this item to rescue a failing harddrive containing a Ubuntu 10.04 distribution. Due to a lack of 6GB Sata Ports on my motherboard, and no free x4 PCIe slot I had to use a 3GB Sata port.
Summary: Drive was great, had it installed in an iMac and it was blazing fast... My only prob is that after less than 9 months it's died. Cost me 100 to get the drive out of the mac, a day to restore all my lost data from backups and now a 2 week wait to get the drive replaced.
