Summary: Installed in my girlfriend's 6 year old laptop using clonezilla and it's blazing now. this is day 0 of use will update in a few months well worth the $70 i paid for it thus far. Install went off without a hitch. Can't wait for the pricing to drop even more so I can upgrade my laptop as well.
Summary: Cant believe what i was missing with my old Western Digital caviar blue.. I thought that was good. This has exceeded my expectations. Im not huge on performance and dont think this is the fastest out there, but if your looking for an entry level SSD here ya go.
Summary: Bought about a month ago (i think). Great product... Had a slight issue with installation of Windows Home Premium 32bit, but it was on my part. But runs like a dream now... Went from 70/25mb-sec r/w to 219/66mb-sec.
Summary: I received the drive and it would not be read on ANY type of computer. So I returned it and blatantly asked for and exchange not a refund and even personally talked to the dealer to make sure that happened. And due to their incompetence it was not exchanged. Do not buy this drive, and more importantly do not do business with this dealer.
Summary: I purchased two of these drives in September. Within 2 weeks one had failed. I received a replacement. Within 2 more weeks, the replacement drive failed. I am not longer comfortable using these drives in my systems and have returned them all.
Summary: Got a great deal on this SSD to upgrade my wife's aging MacBook Pro 2009. Migration was a cinch, but on the first (and second) attempt to do a Time Machine backup, the drive locked up the machine. So, it's going back. I'll wait a bit until the prices come down on more reliable brands (Intel, Crucial M4) before I try another upgrade.

Summary: Here's my concern. Using Acronis to mirror a mushkin deluxe to this drive essentially didn't work for practical use. Program load times were slow, downloads were weird, it was as if everything the drive was doing for the first time had to be relearned or something by the new memory controller. Bottom line-- OCZ makes their own memory controller, you can't image a marvell/intel controlled drive over to it, you have to write it from scratch.
Summary: After my son dropped my netbook (Toshiba NB305) and the harddrive died, decided to pick up an SSD to replace the dead mechanical drive. For me, 60GB is plenty as all I do is email, surf, buy stuff on Amazon :), etc. with it. Seems a little faster than my old drive but since I put this in a netbook, not sure if anything would really make it that much faster.
