Summary: I've only had the product A week or so but it seems good. Mine is used but it doesnt make a difference really esp on a solid state drive. I didn't see too much of a performance pick up yet...although I also didnt set it for the correct mode. In bios you can set it to ide mode (slower) or the other mode that is for sata drives.
Summary: This drive is fast. The first one I received was DOA, but Amazon replaced it quick, and the new one has been working great for over a month. I'm mainly using it for read only operations, and the boot time for Ubuntu is about 10 seconds.
Summary: My computer is so fast and quiet now, I can't even remember life before I switched to my SSD. I have Windows 7 and all the essential programs on this drive, then a couple terabyte drives for my bigger programs and games. I have about 8gb free on this drive after all my files, and I haven't had a problem with it yet. It's worth the money to not hear my hard drives seeking alone. I can't wait until SSDs become more cost effective!
Summary: Great drive for the price. If you can get the Vertex for the same price go for it, but if not this is a great drive. Good controller, long warranty, and fast performance with the best GB:$ ratio of the better performing SSDs. If 60GB isn't enough space get 2 and put them in RAID 0 for even faster performance!
Summary: I used the "one-click order" button on Amazon and the shipping came out $4 more than it would have been had I ordered the normal way. For $18.99 shipping, I should expect overnight delivery, but it was sent "standard" shipping. Otherwise this SSD is a big improvement over my old HDD. Programs open and load instantly. I still use my old HDD for storage.
Good drive for the price, but no mounting hardware included

Summary: Ordered mine for $142. Compared to the Intel 40gb Value SSD, was only $20 more for 50% more disk space and faster performance. This drive is noticebly faster than the Value SSD. I installed the OCZ SSD in small form factor Mini-ITX computer to replace a 3.5 inch 7200 RPM Hitachi drive. The OCZ drive is silent and runs much much cooler. I was worried about heat dissipation in the small case and this drive did the trick. It's been running flawlessly for 5 hours now.
Summary: I have an HP TX2 and often felt like I was waiting forever for applications to load. After popping in this drive the machine is very snappy. As soon as Windows 7 loads and I log in the machine is ready to go. Boot times are a little faster but the big change is how fast applications load and how fast it comes back from sleep. Now when I click on an application's icon, it loads instantly. There's no "thinking about it" or waiting after you click.
