The SSD Advantage
Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.
SSDs have 100x greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.
Because many HDDs are needed to achieve the same performance, SSDs offer greater cost effectiveness for IOPS per dollar.
The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards are shock resistant up to 1500g, unlike HDDs with various moving parts.
SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard drives, delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment.
With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment.

Their response: The RMA department is closed for inventory the last 2 days of the month. Your RMA should ship tomorrow October 1.
I guess it's OK for them if you have to wait 2 additional days for them to count their inventory. As an accountant and an IT consultant, I find this excuse ridiculous as they could easily keep track of drives sent out as part of their inventory count. I will not buy another OCZ drive as a result of failure that occurred way too soon and for poor customer service under warranty.
Having not received a product or an email stating that a device was shipped (They indicated it would be shipped on 09/30/2015), I contacted OCZ again on 10/02/2015. Their reply is:
OCT 02, 2015 | 04:48PM PDT
There was a delay in resolving inventory.
Everything was cleared late today and your drive will ship on Monday.
I apologize for the delay.
This ticket will get updated with the tracking number when it ships and it will be emailed to you.

UPDATE: My first SSD OCZ drive is a Vertex which I bought in 2009. It's now about 6 years old and going strong. Excellent quality.
Update: It's been nearly 2 years later(updated this article at Dec 2015) and this drive is still running perfectly. There is no lag, no issues at all. I even run my PC 24/7. In addition, my first OCZ drive that I bought in 2009 is running perfectly also(it is now my second drive).
Yes, call me a OCZ fan boy. But I am for good reason!
The new system this is going into is a Dell Precision T3600 with an E5-1650 processor (6-core Xeon at 3.2Ghz, w/turbo to 3.8Ghz, CPU Benchmark rates it at 11276; but this system scores 11,971).
I just now un-boxed the Dell and installed this new OCZ Vector 256GB drive with a fresh copy of Windows 7 64-bit. I then ran CPU Benchmark v8(PassMark), and CrystalDiskMark v3 and got killer numbers for my planned video editing work:
Sequential Read: 499.2 MB/s
Sequential Write 477.6 MB/s
(See customer photos to find the picture of the full results.)
...and, after POST completes, Windows takes about 9 seconds to boot to the login prompt.
Note: Installing a new drive (of any kind) in a new T3600 is no easy task - custom drivers for the H310 are required, and a manual setup of the RAID controller plus manual partitioning is required... then the Windows install goes fast and flawless. So, when you buy one of these for your T3600 (or similar), and Windows says it won't install, error 0x8030001 - THERE IS NOTHING WRONG with the drive. You just need to Google "install SSD Dell T3600" and follow the directions... or call Dell support.
Unfortunately 11 months later I suddenly got a blue screen of death. After trying to reboot, the drive was not even recognized by BIOS. Got the dreaded Boot Disk Not Found message. I tried the drive on my home PC and same results. It's as if the drive wasn't even connected. Sent it for RMA, waiting for the replacement.
This is the second OCZ SSD that's died on me. The previous one (Vertex 4), also died with a blue screen of death within less than a year. RMAd it and got a replacement which has been working fine for a year. I have a 3rd OCZ drive (Another Vertex 4) on my home PC that's been running fine for about 2 years. I hope it doesn't die on me.
SSDs are like a drug. You know they are dangerous and unreliable, but you still want one. After going back to my plattered WD blue while waiting for the RMA, I realized how fast things were (and how slow I am now). Although, now I've switched to Ubuntu Linux 14.04 and it isn't as slow as Windows. Really worth the switch. Can't wait to install Ubuntu on the RMA SSD to watch it boot in no time.
