Summary: I have had this SSD in my laptop for about 6 months now. When I was shopping for an SSD my priorities in order were: - power consumption - price - speed I did a lot of research and decided that this model was a good value in terms of low power and high speed for the buck. I have been very pleased with it.
Summary: I recently purchased this SSD for a new system I assembled. The mb is a Asus - P8Z68V PRO which supports Intel Smart Response Technology. My friend said, "well you can use it for a main O/S drive"..but honestly 10 second boot times don't concern me (the pc is mighty quick as it is). Essentially ISRT uses a ssd for caching purposes. So I looked around for a inexpensive (hah) ssd drive and decided on the OCZ. Decent price and performance.
Summary: Have two of these, one is a home cinema computer and the other in an aging laptop. Has increased the cinema computer's boot-up speed drastically. Is quick all around after it's booted up, too. A big difference on the laptop, too. I've heard the performance improvements are even better in Win7, but both of these run XP and I like the results. I haven't had any read/write failures yet, but I trust OCZ to honor their warranties quickly and efficiently.
Summary: I bought this for my new budget build and it's amazing. Not as fast as my Samsung 256 GB SSD in my laptop, but perfect for a main OS drive. I was able to install Windows 7 64 OEM and still had 8GB of free space left. Awesome little drive for the price.
Summary: I bought this product because i had a second pc in the build and i wanted a good but not to expansive SSD in it. although it is a bit small in space it does work perfect for a Windows only directory. you can't add much more to it. it has a very fast bootup time, due to 0.2ms access time. though the write speeds are a bit low but you won't write big files to it that often. the read is fairly good though combined with access time.
