Died on me (again)

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.
Summary: I rarely write reviews of items that I purchase, but this OCZ SSD deserves some praise. I orginally purchased a Muskin Callisto Deluxe SSD, but returned it to Amazon because it was defective. Not wanting to take a chance on another Muskin I ordered the OCZ unit. I'm glad I did. First let me say that this thing is so fast that, at first you can't believe it. It doesn't seem possible that an SSD can be so much faster than a mechanical HDD.
Summary: This was great upgrade from my WD HDD. The speeds are incredible! From system booting to games loading...Everything is just blazing fast!I haven't had any issues with this SSD, Just Plug and Play. 5 stars for this product, and 5 stars for Amazon service.
Summary: As far as SSDs go, you really can't get any worse than this. Yes, this performs like an SSD, which is mindblowingly better than an HDD. That's where the positives end. Most reviews here are comparing SSD performance to a standard HDD, which really isn't a fair comparison. The drive is slow. It's error prone (I'm a power user and bought a bunch of these for my home computers, and 2 have died within a year). OCZ support is pathetic, the RMA process took 3 weeks.
