Summary: Just submitted RMA request to OCZ. If they screw up the deal I will update this. If all goes smooth I probably won't bother. Use the flathead screws to mount the drive in the caddy, the rounded head screws to mount the caddy in the tower.
Pros: Fast, small, comes with 3.5"caddy. 5 year warranty. OCZ support seems pretty good.
Cons: If you don't upgrade to firmware version 3.0 it is likely the drive will fully brick without warning. This happened to me after 11 months of use, as I missed the firmware update notice a few months ago.
Summary: Unstable.. I went through five of these, 3 were casual restarts, and 2 were whilst over clocking. Would NOT recommend this, but OCZ sent me a Vertex 4, and it has been alive for the past 8 months, running strong and super fast! Wish I would of purchased it in the first place.

Summary: SUPER fast, but after only 10 months my computer screen freezes and the drive stops working. I take it out, plug it in and it wont even recognize in bios or boot up. Now I have to send it back to the manufacturer for repair.
works well when it worked but ultimatly has reliablity issues.

Summary: purchased this September 5, 2013 and as of today the refurbished one i received has finally died and i dont think i can RMA this one again to get a replacement. Worked well when it worked but i bought two of these to raid and both had to be RMA'd.
Pros: This drive was amazingly fast. It was ahead of it's time with a true read/write of over 500mb/sec... I put it in a laptop of mine, and hot dang that thing loaded up super fast... All that changed though when it suddenly died on me.
Cons: This thing did the normal thing that is happening to all these drives..... It died. I had to reboot my laptop a few times after installing some stuff. In one of those installs, I did a hard power boot. After restarting from that, the drive through a bunch of corrupt data file errors when booted t...
Summary: Installed this drive on my 2nd Gen i7 laptop one year ago. Performancewise, I'd give it 5 solid stars. Windows boots ultra fast, programs open faster. You simply don't want to use another computer once you have this.
Summary: These SSDs are really fast, and really great, when they're not failing. Unfortunately many of them shipped with a firmware that will just corrupt your OS on a sunny day and have you raging out hard. In total, via work or personal, I've overseen the purchase of 4 of these.
