Died after less than 2 years of use as a boot drive

Summary: Died after less than 2 years of use as a boot drive. On the one hand I was glad of the warranty (5 years for this model when purchased directly from OWC), but disappointed I had to exercise that warranty.
Summary: This unit was used to replace the 500GB drive in my Mac Mini. HALF of the storage I had, but Macs store extremely efficiently than "Fat" OS's (Windows). The increase in speed is truly AMAZING - and I'm still only using about ⅓ of it's capacity - and I have TONS of files of all kinds.
Summary: Put the 3G version of this in my MacBook Pro. Found it to be too small so I replaced it with another larger SSD. Since then it gets used a few times a year for photo backup. This year, 2 days before a trip and 4 days before the warranty expired, I found it had failed.
Summary: My MacBookPro took over 1 minute to boot. Now it boot's in 10s. This was one the best upgrade ever. Do your research... thera are some SSD's that are very slow. Mercury Extreme Pro has lots of advantages over other brands and models.

Summary: My 15" early 2011 Macbook Pro's logic board died recently. I got it back repaired from Apple, and decided to use this time to upgrade the hard drive. I bought this drive and the OWC data doubler.

I installed it in the macbook pro(much easier on the newer bodies than of days of old when you had to remove a bunch of stuff) and used a usb mountain lion thumbdisk to do the partitioning and formatting and installing of 10.8 mac os x (which worked like a...
Summary: I bought a new mid-2012 MBP 13 and installed an OCZ Vertex 4 256 Gb SSD (see my review of that product). I had nothing but problems with formatting and other issues, such as crashing on sleep/wake. After much troubleshooting, I determined that the SSD was the source of my problems.
