Was great before it stopped working.

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: Make no mistake - when this drive works as intended it's amazing. The problem is the reliability. I had my doubts going in and now it's been confirmed. My drive crashed last night and I'm back to my trusty old magnetic disk drive. Guess there's a cost associated with the latest and greatest. If you're willing to put up with disk failures knock yourself out but I can't recommend this drive for anything mission critical. Back up your data often.
Summary: I have 3 computers, 1 Gateway FX desktop and 2 Dell Precision laptops, all running Windows 7 64 Bit. Over the past 6 months, I bought 3 OCZ SSD's. I replaced the primary boot drive on all three computers with OCZ SSD to get better performance. The performance increase, especially in boot time, is easily double if not more of what my previous 7200 RPM hard disks.
Summary: Blazing fast... for a little over a year. My system locked up during internet surfing. A hard reboot made my system hang for a while, detecting IDE drives. Once it got done, the Agility was not in the list and Windows was no longer present. I swapped out this drive with a normal HDD and the system ran normlly, just wouldn't boot because I did not have Windows on the HDD. This ruled out my SATA port, SATA power cable and SATA cable being the issue. It's the SSD.
