Its an ok drive but I have used better

Summary: This is a really fast drive, but what I am looking for is stability more than speed. I used this drive as my OS drive for about 3 days until I started getting blue screens and decided to return it, I didn't have time to mess with it to figure out what was going on.
Summary: OCZ makes good products but this HD is medeocre. Causes hang ups and problems after a while. Long boot times suck compared to SSD SATA3 drives. I switched to an OCZ SATA drive and like it better. The PCI-E drive is sitting in a drawer while I use the SATA drive. I may use it as a swap drive.
Summary: I purchased this since it was on sale here on Amazon. I put it in a new build and installed windows 7 on it (with the help of the drivers on OCZ's website). I ran some speed test on it (Crystal Disk Mark and ATTO) the ATTO bench marks were right on with the specs.
Summary: Bought the OCZ Agility series with more gb and it works almost double the speed (over 600mb/s) and it connects in at 6gps. So eventually OCZ may get the PCI-e SSDs to work but with the reviews on Newegg it seems either go with the Agility or go to another brand
Pros: Not a lot of pros. PCI-e
Cons: This was the replacement for the 1st drive that went from working to constant BSOD even after a clean install of OS. For a PCI-E it took 5 minute to get it in the slot and to line the screw down. OCZ software could locate the drive but not the OS. Had to get 3rd party software to get OS to recogn...
Summary: I'm going to sell it since it took 2 months to get it working as my boot drive and newegg won't accept it as a return. It's kind of sad that my $50 SSD works better than my $400 SSD. I was planning on giving 80 GB to Windows and 40 GB to Linux but it's not possible.
Pros: Doesn't take up any SATA ports and is space efficient.
Cons: Nowhere on the product info page here does it mention that it only works in Windows due to OCZ's proprietary VCA controller. I run Linux as my main OS and I had to wait a week or two for someone to write a patch to even get it detected by Linux, after that the patch had to accepted into the mainl...
Summary: I bought ssd drives , regodrives and other enterprice ssd cards. They had all the time issues or some problems. Ssd didn't boot's up quick , revodrive has booting issues sometimes dead right away. enterprice product didn't have any issues. I plugged it and it worked.
Pros: Drive is fast. IT works amazing fast.
Cons: Well I bought then put it in to computer after 10minutes usage one of the raid died. went to change it from the place i bought in Manhattan. Then install the new one. It worked but with couple issues. When client shutdown computer then power it up. Device doesn't come up. So I have to go there an...
