Summary: Had this drive installed in a Lenovo R500 laptop. Drive installation was quick and painless. Installed Windows normally. Speed was MUCH better than a standard hard drive. The only problem I have with the drive is that it failed in 13 months, and unlike a standard hard drive, with no chance of data...
Amazing speed upgrade for your laptop at a reasonable price

Summary: I have a 2008 Macbook 13" unibodoy and I was looking for a possibility to speed up the computer, especially when I have a lot of programs open. Consequently, when many programs are open, there is a lot of swapping happening between the RAM and the harddrive involved and that costs a lot of time.
Conclusion: The Toshiba controller gives the venerable Vertex a tough competitor, but it isn’t quite as well suited for smaller file IOPs as the Vertex is. On the flipside, the Toshiba-based SSDNow V+ does offer higher sequential file writes with large file sizes, if this is an important consideration for you.
Summary: Firmware to 1.5 is very easy using the ocz forums. I had to send one of the drives back and before I even sent it back I received a new one. Amazon is rediculous. In such a corrupt consumer propogated manuipulated country we are in it is nice to see at least one coorporate American company doing the...
Summary: This is the earlier generation of turbo series and does not have auto trim built in. But you can send trim commands through a exe file downloadable from OCZ. I made the mistake of flashing the SSD using the Vertex normal series firmware causing it to lose its performance.
Summary: Originally very happy with the ocz sata2 Vertex Turbo 60 gb drive as it took boot time from power on to Fios internet 50 seconds vs. 2 min. with mechanical drive. After 18 months, the drive no longer was visible in bios. All programs, files and pictures were lost. (Did have backup).
Summary: This is by far the best upgrade i have made, it is not my first OZC product and it will not be the last. Super fast Boot time. i know the price tag still burns a hole in the wallet but compared to a CPU upgrade i would well recomend SSD. Install and run straight out of the box with no fuss.
Summary: If you want to add speed to your PC then this is the thing to buy. Have your OS on this and put all programmes on a separate 1TB drive. Nothing will improve your PCs performance as much as one of these bad boys.
Excerpt: Ich bin auf jeden Fall großer Fan von einer SSD Festplatte geworden. Sie dominiert einfach extrem gegenüber den HDD Festplatten. Ich selber betreibe noch 2x 1 TB HDD Festplatte und merke beim Kopieren bzw. Auslesen von Daten den extremen Unterschied.
Pros: Extrem schnell, Stromsparend (2 Watt), keine Wärmeentwicklung
Excerpt: Hochladen, Programm öffnen... oh man dauert das alles lange. Vorallem nervig wenn man am Computer nur mal kurz abends die Adresse eines Restaurants startet oder morgens noch schnell eine eMail lesen will. Was ist der Unterschied zur normalen Festplatte.
Pros: + super schnell
Cons: - Speicherplatz noch sehr teuer, + Stromverbrauch
