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.
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.
Buy this if only worthless pile of metal and you'll be sorry

Cons: Now i'm writing this review because it has now been the third OCZ Vertex2 60Gb SSD that has died on me, each failing completely and becoming undetectable by the bios, or any CD or USB based Operating systm i loaded into memory, after a little less then a year of casual use with minimal write and ...
Summary: I hope the replacement is more reliable. Overall, I would have preferred a std hard disk over the hassle with this SSD.
Pros: Fast but not SATA III
Cons: Unreliable and difficult to perform firmware upgrades. I bought this in Sept 2011. Since then it often would require Windows scandisk to scan and fix the disk upon boot. Twice, it was not readable and required re-installation. Today, the disk was not recognizable at all and I am RMAing it OCZ. Fo...
