Buy This Here! Check Amazon before going to NewEgg!

Summary: I purchased this drive from newegg.com, but should have checked here first for pricing. This drive is cheap and has been chugging away in my macbook pro, and is definitely worth the upgrade! I would recommend purchasing this here than on newegg!
Summary: I must say this is a great SSD, the overall experience vs using traditional rotational HDD's is much much better, first I updated the firmware of the SSD with the tool provided on OCZ website (you need to burn a disc and boot from that disc while the ssd is connected to the internal SATA port to do the update, it can't be done with external enclosures or anything like that), the latest version is 1.5, once I did that, I installed OS X Mountain Lion from a usb install...
Summary: The description states this is a 256GB SSD. The SSD i received is 232GB, which we do a conversion from the BS gigabyte "standard" that they advertise to what a gigabyte actually is: (238GB * 1024MB) / 1000 = 243GB - Neither 238GB, nor 243GB are the 256GB advertised. Although i expect advertisers/manufacturers to lie about the size, incorrectly using 1000mb as the size of a GB instead of 1024mb, that would only cause me to lose 6GB, not 20GB.
Summary: Installed this SSD in my late 2008 Unibody MacBook earlier this week, to coincide with the release of Mountain Lion. Created a bootable USB drive with the mac firmware updates and easily updated the drive's firmware to 1.5 (the latest as of this writing). Then did a clean install of OS X Mountain Lion from DVD and used Migration Assistant to copy over my user account, docs and software from my previous system drive (Seagate Momentus 7200 RPM 500 GB HDD).
Summary: I purchased this drive from another vendor for a very good price ~.54c per GB. This is OCZ's new effort and they are coming fast and furious with new firmware updates to improve this drives performance. Since the controller (based on Marvel) is proprietary, OCZ will be working very hard to differentiate by trying to optimize this drive to the fullest. I suspect even better performance in the months ahead.
Summary: After having a Crucial 512gig drive fail on me after only 8 months I was a bit apprehensive to truth Crucial again. Hence needing a replacement drive before Crucial RMA process would deliver one, I elected to purchase this particular OCZ drive as all 3 of my power systems use SSD for boot/system functions. This OCZ Drive installed without issue (expected that much) but also is quite fast and I will wager OCZ by reputation is consistent in their quality.
Summary: Purchased this drive a few days ago from Newegg to upgrade an older and smaller SSD. Drive installed perfectly without any hiccups, has been burning in for the last 24 hours without any issues. Super fast boot-up time, even compared to a slightly older SSD. Speed differences between this and mechanical drive are like night and day.
Summary: I already own a 256GB Vertex 4 for the operating system drive on my desktop and was extremely satisfied. I wanted to upgrade my laptop as well but I wasn't ready to splurge on another Vertex 4 since my laptop only has a SATA 2. This 4th generation drive is competitively priced and will easily max out the read and write speed of the SATA 2 connection.
It is what it says it is.... don't let it off the hook!

Summary: Since I know there are a few folks out there with my situation I'll share my research after some trial on error. There are many brands of SSD's who CLAIM to be able to perform like this but can't hold a candle to the Agility 4. Even the OCZ agility 3 or vertex 3 with the old indilinx controller didn't get close to this performance.
