This product rocks so far! Prices have been coming down, and I wanted an SSD that had the same capacity as my internal hard drive.

I have a 15-inch Macintosh unibody laptop (mid 2010) running OS X 10.7 "Lion" with a 500G internal hard drive. A friend put a roughly 120G SSD in his, and put the old HD in place of the DVD-ROM using an adapter you can find on Amazon. (He put the "superdrive" in an external USB enclosure, also available on Amazon.) (I decided I like having an internal DVD drive.) After research, I bought a $12 2.5" USB SATA enclosure and put the SSD in it. I have OS X on my "Time Machine" external backup drive. After cleaning up my internal drive to get rid of junk (using free program "Disk Inventory X" to find big wasteful files,) I booted from the backup drive so my internal drive was static and could be copied to SSD. Then I cloned my internal drive to the SSD using a program I bought called SuperDuper (which has always performed well for me.) (You might try Carbon Copy Cloner too.) For a day, I ran my system from the cloned version via USB choosing it as the startup disk. I also did a backup of it. Then I put the SSD inside my Mac in place of my old HD (my unibody Mac opens with three long and a bunch of short screws on the bottom. (While in there, you may as well insert the maximum RAM too.) I re-booted with no external drives attached--blazingly fast! (And I don't even take advantage of the 6GB transfer because my Mac is old--but if I get a new one this SSD drive is going into it.

Bought to use with Windows 7 Pro. System works great and is quiet. I use this drive with a Gigabyte z68 m/b and do fine. It is much faster than a conventional HD. It's very cool running. Got this drive in Sept off a bid site, and so far it's working well. Octane done did it.

Update, April 2013:
The specs since September 2012: the OCZ SSD drive, Gigabyte Z68MA m/b, i7 2600K cpu, GE force 620, 650, then 660ti g-card, 32mb ram & 950W pc power&cooling psu. The only thing I will be doing is upgrading to the 3770K chip and a 680 card later on for this system. My drive is nowhere near full with a bunch of games etc. on it. It's still going strong with no problems at all. Still on Win7, will keep 7 on this system.

Time to find a second TB SSD and build a second system.
Will update in approx. 6 mos.

This is mostly for Mac users: I have installed this drive inside a mid 2009 15" MacBook Pro 5,3. I bought this drive based on other reviews. Turns out it was NOT worth it. It's not "blazing fast" as some are suggesting, but it does make a difference. I've had some issues running Snow Leopard at the beginning, but only because the drive came with an older firmware version. As soon as I updated to the latest firmware revision using the boot tool downloadable on the OCZ website, all worked flawlessly. I have also upgraded to the maximum of RAM in the process, now it really feels like I have a new computer. A much better alternative to buying a new Mac. Using TrimEnabler seemed to make a difference in overall performance as well, even if its benefits are supposed to be more noticeable over long term usage. Even if there are newer versions of this SSD, I recommend this one as it is the fastest in its class according to the specs. I got this for $399 Prime price. A good deal, considering other resellers' price.

Important updates on this review: the SSD failed after 2 weeks of normal usage, while copying a large number of files from an external HDD (about 200Gb). The SSD and the entire computer froze about 95% into the copying process and the SSD was unusable after that. It has been returned to their RMA facility, they were extremely helpful and prompt in delivering a replacement. I have received a Vertex 4 as a replacement for the dead Octane. The Vertex 4 worked for about one hour, then crashed in an identical way with the previous one (Octane). A RMA ticket has been issued immediately and the drive was send for replacement 2 days ago. I'm now waiting for a replacement. I'll update this when I get a working drive.

What can I say. This drive is the fastest I've ever used. I have mechanical drives and hydrid drives. Neither can come close to the performance of this Octane unit. For those of you that live by your WEI score, this unit posted a 7.9! Windows boots much quicker now than before. Virus scans, general tasks and game loadings are ridiculously quick. I can't say enough good things about this unit. I bought the OEM version, so the only thing that comes is the drive itself: no cables,no screws,no mounting bracket, and no software. Not an issue for me since my 650D case came with the mounting bracket and the screws. My motherboard came with extra SATA 6 cables. I downloaded a freeware program to migrate my software to the SSD. Everything is working great.

1. $$$/GB - guess that real performance costs!
2. Reliability: only time will tell how long this unit lives. The unit comes with a lengthy 3 yr warranty, so I expect a long life from the unit.
