Summary: Amazon really should stop selling this absolutely horrible product, Mine died suddenly too. I'm going to RMA the thing and use a New Crucial instead;The OCZ I get will be tossed aside, DO NOT buy this nor any other OCZ's worthless products.
Summary: First drive would not hold a partition, so I sent it back for a new one. Second drive will not hold a partition, so I'm sending it back for a new one... I can only HOPE that the third time is the charm.
Summary: OK for those out there who bough this an said.You people must be doing something wrong.No...There not.It does not recognize your system.You go to BIOS an you can see it there.Try to install your installer CD for Windows? Nope cant do that.Error.
DO NOT BUY! Useless, non-standard-size hockey puck.

Summary: Got this on newegg - here's my RMA: Defective and incompatible. Defective: Windows 7 will not install on it. Linux will install, but will not boot afterwards, and it becomes unmountable after the install, so cannot be fixed from recovery. Incompatible: Non-standard size!
Summary: I own several PC's and laptops and no-matter what I try, including: asking nicely will this drive become recognized by the cd in dos mode regardless the IDE ACHI settings or which SATA port it is plugged into even in the 1155, 1156, or AM3 platforms of which I have attempted have I been able to make...
Summary: Received drive, installed drive in array. Within 6 months it failed. I could not find my receipt for purchase, they REFUSED to RMA the faulty drive. I am not sure it matters how or where I bought the thing, it failed they should replace it. I will NEVER purchase another OCZ product again. Good luck.
Summary: Don't buy this. Mine died after 2 days of usage. Tons of people are complaining on-line about their Vertex Plus SSD dieing in a short period of time due to faulty firmware. OCZ was offering a mail in rebate for this a while ago.
Summary: Recently purchased this SSD to upgrade my Mac's storage to something faster. Although OCZ lists the drive as "Mac Qualified" it does not work at all (at least not for any usable amount of time). After partitioning and formatting the drive, installation starts but fails.
Summary: Believe the other reviews... I tried to use this to bring some life into an old laptop. I recently built a new desktop - with SSD for the first time - and it was screaming fast. I have this old laptop, now nearly ten years old, and the hard drive died.
