4.5 Years and Still Going Strong!

Pros: Bought this as an upgrade for my gaming rig. Has served me as a boot drive for 4.5 years and have had zero problems with it. As much flak as OCZ gets in the reviews for their products, I've had zero problems with either of the SSD drives I've bought from them. Very happy!
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 picked this SSD because I didn't have much hope in my five-year old laptop; I just wanted fast boot speeds (I use Peppermint OS, which is an Ubuntu-based Linux OS). This worked great! It has given me absolutely no problems since I bought it.
Summary: Compared to how slow the computer booted with a normal HD, this thing is lightning. It just takes less that 15 seconds for it to boot to the desktop. It loads everything pretty quick. Its quiet. Its light. It keeps cool. On top of that, works great. Better than I expected.
Summary: Great SSD, works flawlessly with MacBook, MacBook Pros, and Mac Pros. Got advertised read/write speeds when benching the drive. Bummer that OS X doesn't support native TRIM functions, but there are ways around this with various utilities.
Pros: Came with 2.15 firmware installed...no flashing needed! No BSOD's or drive issues after coming out of sleep IT'S FREAKING FAST Boot up to windows desktop less than 30 seconds even with a login screen
Summary: This drive is faster than I expected. Compared to an older 32gb OCZ Onyx drive, write speed is slightly faster but read speed is almost double. Doesn't seem to heat up as fast as the Onyx either. I think it's worth a few extra bucks to get this one instead of the Onyx.
Summary: Nothing but positive results from this drive. Apparently newer, faster drives get better results but this drive has served me well. Most of my productivity is web based so I don't launch many applications but I have noticed a significant performance increase over my 5400 RPM drive.
