Great until it stopped working

Summary: Looks like it is the same as several others here. Purchased this just over 1 year ago to replace the SATA HD in my laptop. Cloned the original HD, swapped it out and BAM, instant improvement. Blazing fast boot up (in the 10-13 second range). But, it was not to last. Tried booting up the laptop today and the system stated there was no bootable OS. Pulled the SSD out and placed it in an external can to see if my desktop could recognize the SSD. But it saw nothing.
Summary: I had heard the reviews of this drive being unreliable but I bought it anyway, the speed was great and the price was decent enough. And for about 15 months I thought i was lucky until one day I got a BSOD. And upon a Check Disk I found this hard drive riddled with bad sectors. Hoping to here back from OCZ soon for my refund... sigh.
Summary: Although I purchased this from a different vendor, the first drive stopped functioning after 6 months, and was replaced by OCZ. Now the replacement has also failed, and I am in the process of getting it replaced.
Summary: I had this drive for 2 FW updates and then returned it. It was a nightmare to update if you run it on an Apple. I had to go to the lengths of removing the drive and installing it into a windows or Linux based system to update it. They are fast but again not for use on an Apple product no matter how much the package states it is Mac compatible they are not. I will never own another OCZ product for this false advertising. Stay away if you are an apple owner.
Summary: Mine died after 14 months. Was working fine all along until one day when my computer cannot detect the SSD during POST. Tried changing SATA connections and cables made no difference. I think there are some serious flaws with the sandforce controller chips used, their high (and often sudden) failure rate is way too high to be acceptable. I have 3 SSDs by OCZ, and 2 failed within their 3 yr warranty period.
Summary: I purchased this drive almost a year ago and it's still running strong. It has easily made my system at least twice as fast just with general activities like logging on to Windows, switching between users, opening programs, surfing the internet, etc. I would highly recommend this drive.
Summary: I purchased one of these from another vendor back in feb 2011... died and did not even show up in the BIOS in May. OCZ replaced it, of course my data was lost for good as they just gave me a new drive. Now this 2nd one has just died again (again not showing up even in BIOS). Once again all my data is gone Im sure. I have an RMA and I am HOPING the give me a different model as this one just does not seem to be working out.

Summary: This is a great product. Not only does it cut down on boot time, but it makes installing apps a snap as well. It is large enough to have all your programs installed on it. I use a second disk to store all my data.
