Not sure why it's over $770 but I'll try it

Summary: For $771.63 this 60 GB solid state hard drive must be frigging SWEET! It's a bit more expensive than every other drive in its class (by around $720) so I'm sure it's gonna be amazing quality! This cannot possibly let me down. I love OCZ!

Summary: I've been pretty satisfied with this product. Easy to set up and ok performance. Then it died after about 6 month of usage. I'm using it in a media pc - so no heavy load, just some Windows Media Center TV playback/recording. OCZ replaced the disk within 3 weeks. The new disk ran for about a year before the same thing happened again. I just filled a RMA.
Summary: I purchased the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120GB SSD in June 2011, it worked flawlessly with no issues and still does! I put this SSD in my 2011 15" MackBook Pro and have no issues, no crashes, no hiccups, no beach balls, nothing but a fast SSD doing its job. I have owned 7, yes 7 different OCZ SSDs and only 1 has EVER Failed. When it failed, I submitted an RMA to OCZ and they did an ADVANCED RMA per my request and sent me a new SSD first, then I sent in the old.
Summary: OCZ 250G SSD installed it in MacBook(13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008), and the speedup was satisfied. But SSD does not work after installation in about 1 week, and it is the status that cannot return a product because I keep a record of important data.
Summary: "The SATA II SSD 2.5 Drive comes un-formatted. It is possible to format the drive ... within the Windows environment under MY Computer ..." Sounds easy. But, it doesn't work. I have spent hours searching the net looking for a way to format/get Windows Explorer to recognize the OCZ SSD. The OCZ Corporate site is no help. Save your self a lot of frustration and a lot of mony - forget SSDs in general and OCZ SSDs especially.
WARNING: This is an Indilinx SSD and will NOT Work with any Macbooks Pre mid-2008 with Bootcamp

Summary: This is a warning rather than a review as most of my reviews are. I usually don't review things unless I have come across and issue or discovered something. This hard drive unless factory updated (which I doubt) will NOT work with any pre mid-2008 Macbooks when it comes to Bootcamp. Trying to boot any Windows Media, whether it is a CD or HD partition will not boot. It will hang on a grey screen indefinitely and never boot.
Summary: 1. I have had very good experience with the OCZ SSD products in the past 2. I purchased this product and everything was fine for about a month, then all the sudden I was not able to access the data on the drive. I connected the drive to 2 different SATA2 port, and neither port recognized the drive. 3. I contacted Amazon to make arrangements to return the drive. 4. While I was waiting for a response from Amazon, I was able to format the drive again.
Summary: I purchased this drive for my Dell Precision M4400. It boots Windows 7 in about 15 seconds. The drive rates a 7.3 on the windows experience index. Works fantastic. I wouldn't pay what Amazon is asking, I bought mine for $400. This drive is being discontinued so you should be able to get a deal on it if you shop. The tech that I bought it from steered me away from the newer OCZ drive for my laptop, he said it tends to lock up when resuming from standby.
