Summary: As another reviewer stated this is a failed device. His failed in 3 months, mine lasted 7 days after arrival. It dropped in and out constantly, would vanish at random from hard drive list, was slow and totally failed in a week. OCZ also has horrid support, they know they are selling junk because they were offering a 100$ rebate when ordered from their site that you would mail in but if you accepted the rebate you voided your replacement/refund options somehow.
Summary: For the 1st 3 months of operation, I was pleased with the increased speed this drive provided, but I'd spent the extra money for reliability (no moving parts & 1,500,000 hours mean time between failure) as well as speed. It was installed with an Asus P6T mother board, i7 920 processor & operating Vista Ultimate. In early December, I was upgrading to windows 7 and within 5 seconds of beginning the initial survey of the computer, the drive failed.
Summary: Check the ocz ssd forum to see the problems associated with this drive and other products from this manufacturer. 2 out of 3 of these 60gb Agility drives I have used were lemons, costing me weeks of troubleshooting and downtime. The tech support will have you waste your time spelling out in detail your system components, having you identify the drive and firmware, putting jumper on the drive, sanitary erasing it, reinstalling software, tweaking system settings, etc.
