This drive is super fast and makes a great boot drive.
Amazon Customer
In my work computer, I am using an Intel, and it has not failed in the last two years.

Being stuck with 800 dollars in drives you can't trust your data on really sucks.

The first unit I received was DOA. Bummer. Vertex replaced it promptly. Unfortunately, the second unit failed completely after a month in use - while I was traveling and working on time sensitive projects. Even though I have image backups, I had to cancel a trip and return home to replace my hard drive and restore it. If I hadn't had the image backup on Windows Home Server I would have been truly hosed. At this point, even if this unit is replaced under warranty I would never trust data to it another one of these drives. Too bad, the performance was great. If you're looking for an SSD, keep looking, there's nothing here.

Four days after install I received a "Loading DMI pool data hang up." at boot. Luckily I had a recovery floppy and a secondary working computer to search my issue. Could have been something I did? Everything is back running fine ever since the fix. This is an upgrade from my (2) 74gb Raptor Raid 0 configuration that I've had for the past 2 years. I've had the product for about a month now. I partitioned the drive for my Win7 64 bit OS (30 GB), Programs (3 GB), and Games (55 GB).

Noticeable stuff so far: Computer boots faster, programs and games load faster, and encoding video is a little quicker. I cannot take full advantage of this product as my EVGA nForce 680i SLI Mainboard 122-CK-NF68-AR does not have the AHCI option, (checked MSI FAQ) which I guess makes it even faster from what I have read in the reviews for Solid State Drives. I would recommend making sure your motherboard supports the AHCI option in the BIOS to take full advantage of the speed. Not a huge deal, but if you are spending this kind of money, you'd want to make sure this thing was running as fast as it was meant to run.

I would still recommend this product, as it has been a nice speed upgrade for my computer and I've been satisfied so far.

Great performance while it works, but failure rates are ridiculously high.

Unless you enjoy playing russian roulette with your data I would go with the intel G2. Bought two of these in a raid0 and really really regret it after the first one died after 1 month. Forums are full of other poor saps like me. Being stuck with 800 dollars in drives you can't trust your data on really sucks.

I bought the 200GB incarnation of this which seems to have vanished from amazon. It worked for about 4 hours then died with my data. Took it to all the local computer shops/gurus who all examined it and said my data was gone forever.
Three cheers (and 5 stars) to amazon for making the return/refund very smooth. I would not trust this OCZ with any data that is not backed up... ever.

Not much to say other than this drive is ABSURDLY fast... Absolutely worth every penny. Windows 7 boots in about 10 seconds. Once I login with my password, my desktop is loaded and settled (that is, all my systray icons are loaded and operating) within five seconds -- and I did not reinstall Windows when I got this drive (I Ghosted the drive from my old 7200rpm SATA drive). If I reinstall, I expect the performance would be even better still. SSD is clearly the future.

I bought the OCZ Technology 100 GB Vertex Limited Edition 2.5-Inch SATA II Solid State Drive (SSD) from Amazon on June 3, 2010 for $363. It has since worked flawlessly on 3 different notebook PCs.

I upgraded the firmware once (in 2010), a process that could have been smoother/easier (Samsung firmware upgrades are much easier), but the upgrade did install without error. I did this attempting to fix the Blue Screen Of Death I was getting sporadically. The firmware upgrade didn't fix it though. It turns out, the problem was in some Windows Updates fix. The BSOD started after I applied all critical updates in mid-2010, and went away after I applied all critical updates again in December 2010. Microsoft giveth, Microsoft taketh away, blessed be the name of the Gates.

I have used the secure erase function on it multiple times. For those unfamiliar with it, it instantly tells the SSD controller that all the cells are unused - thus obviating the need for writing zeroes. That not only saves time, but it saves wear on the MLC-based cells. By returning the drive to the factory condition instantly, it allowed me to more quickly restore a backup of the new notebook's system, and probably prevented much unnecessary garbage collection.

I see Amazon has 1 left, but they want $309 for it. Dudes, that is way too much for a long-in-the-tooth 100GB SATA II SSD in this day and age. Do you want to sell it? If so, you should consider at the very least matching the K & H Attic price of $185. Even that is way too high when you consider you are currently selling a much faster SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5-Inch 128GB SATA III MLC SSD (MZ-7PC128B/WW) for $100. I doubt I could get more than $50 for my Vertex LE, used. You shouldn't be asking more than $100 for it, new. Really, $75 would be much more reasonable. If you want to sell it, that is.
