It lasted for about a year and a half

Summary: I had this drive for about a year and a half, and it is finally met its end. Everything was fine one day, and the next morning I woke up to a corrupted Windows. I reformatted and reinstalled windows. Now the drive will either hang at the Post test and try to initiate the drive, or it will boot up and my computer will freeze after 2-3 minutes of use. This was a fast drive while it lasted.
Summary: I got this Drive in Nov 2010 for my dell D620 laptop with 2 gig ram 1.83ghz processor running windows XP on a 7200rpm HHD drive. When I got the drive I installed Win 7. I was having issues from the get go. Win 7 would never shut down properly. Every time i restarted the machine windows 7 would revert back to a restore point and any new apps I installed were gone.
Summary: Less than 6 months into using it, the drive is failing and disappearing from my system consistently 4 minutes after booting. I've diagnosed the issue in multiple builds and found it's a drive problem; not cables, ports, OS, etc. This also appears to be a common complaint with these and other OCZ drives at their forum. A firmware update did not fix it.
