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 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: 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.
At current prices this is a MUST BUY, even for a 5 year old pc

Summary: Got a new copy of Windows 7 Premium 64bit oem. Installed it on this SSD (and used all the tips on this page: [...]) UNBELIEVABLE PERFORMANCE. And for cheap too! I am using a 4 year old gaming rig, though it was top of the line at the time I built it. First, I installed my new Win7 on my old hard drive, and used Win7 for a week because I wanted to compare the speed with the new SSD. Then, I installed it on the SSD. And was BLOWN AWAY by the difference.
Summary: I saw a NCIX Tech Tip about the Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid here [...]. But, they showed a Silverstone HDDBOOST as a comparison/alternative. I decided that the HDDBOOST was the way for me to go because you don't have to install/reinstall anything. So I bought this inexpensive(slower) OCZ SSD to put in the HDDBOOST just to try it out. It's wicked! Opening IE, Excel, Word, Firefox, Thunderbird, FEAR2, Google Earth, or anything is super fast. Really fast!!
Summary: Wow! is all I can say. Coming from a SG 640GB 32mb cache HDD, this SSD is amazing. Boot time on my windows 7 is twice or thrice faster than before. With almost 0 access time, programs open instantly immediately right after Windows 7 boots up. 30GB is big enough for a boot drive with all your programs. It will fill up quick if you install one or two modern games. I have about 15GB of space left with most of my programs installed.
Summary: I bought the OCZ Vertex 30GB as part of an experiment. I do a lot of audio editing (concert recordings, typically 1+ hours of 96kHz 24-bit = 2.5GB typical) and because of the size of the files I work with, I am often limited by harddrive speed. I used the SSHD to master the last concert recording I worked on. Overall, I'd peg the drive at about 3x faster than my 1TB Seagate.
