Summary: Not worth the money or the effort.
Pros: Worked pretty well for 4ish months and then died.
Cons: Sent it in to OCZ and they honored the warranty and got another one to me within a couple weeks. That one died again after about 3 months and I didn't feel like going through the warranty process again.
Instead I have replaced it with an VTR150-25SAT3-120G and excellent work. Do not give it 5 stars because ...

Summary: I was hurt shortly after purchase, but shoulder the OCZ support as they have changed the hard drive smoothly, just asked me purchase information and the damage and I have changed the same covering them spending a year and a half later, the guarantee 5 years is real.
Summary: Bought one of these refurbished for $349.00 and after a few hours of use this ssd died! The comments below regarding the longevity of this product is for real! ! Save yourself the hassle and just skip this model SSD completely!
Summary: Don't buy this SSD. After a couple of months, the SSD died. All my files were gone and I had to reinstall Windows. While the RMA process was quick, the replacement was defective. OCZ Vector is notorious for bricking, even though its fast. Go with a Samsung.
Cons: first one died in about 3 months. customer service replaced it, but my experience was terrible. took well over a week, even with credit card securing shipment, email only, no phone service, terribly slow res ponces, some ignored when I complained. I expected better. w/d, seagate, etc over the yea...
Summary: This SSD failed a little before 6 months old.Bought this early 2012 and it got put away and forgotten. I assumed by now, it would be out of warranty, but, website says a limited 5 year warranty at the time. Someone says they are only 3 years now., So now trying to create a RMA. We'll see.
Pros: Fast as anything else at the time- very satisfied with the speed Easy to install
Summary: Do not buy! I am unsure if this is a product line-wide problem of OCZ's, or if it's just this model, but if this and most every review is true, this drive is absolutely terrible and will die on you unexpectedly and far sooner than it should.
Pros: Device is very fast. I threw my OS on there and, with my BIOS in fast boot, ended up getting to the welcome screen in about fifteen seconds from cold start. Also, it's occasionally on sale, so you might be able to pick it up for a lot cheaper, like I was able to.
Cons: I had my SSD for around nine months when it started throwing telltale signs of a bad HDD, occasionally freezing, random bad sectors, etc etc but I just wrote it off and hoped it would go away. Then, randomly I reset my PC, Disk Check ran and found tons of bad sectors and corrupted files, which it...
Summary: I purchased two of these drives in Aug 2013. After data loss I've updated each to the latest firmware. Both were at V3 (the latest) about 3 months ago. One just died. OCZ Toolbox can see the drive, but can't do a secure erase.
Pros: Very fast. A very nice SSD drive when it works.
Cons: Data corruption and data loss. I normally go 2+ years without having to reinstall OS. I have two of these drives in two machines both running the OS. Both have required 3 reinstalls during the last year. One died at 13 months.
Summary: 8 months after buying my SSD died for no apparent reason. I contacted OCZ and used their 5 year warranty to have it replaced. It was a common issues from my research. After at least 2 weeks and back an forth emails with OCZ, they told me they no longer made this specific drive and offered me the new...
Pros: in the beginning SSD was pretty fast, 5 year warranty
