I purchased this to be part of a new computer build for our church about 2 months ago. It was my first build with an SSD, but installed without a hitch and provided a level of performance I didn't think was possible for a build ~$500.

After reading several reviews on this product, I had to double-check the drive I used was the same. I had none of the issues others wrote about. The drive was plugged into the GIGABYTE GA-M68MT-S2P AM3 motherboard together with a WD 1TB HDD and both were recognized by the BIOS. Installation of 64bit Windows 7 and MS Office went smoothly. I re-targeted the user folders to the HDD to minimize the load on the SDD.

I feel bad for the others who had problems with this drive. Based on my experience, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

I've been a long time fan of OCZ since 2005-ish. I always had good experience with the DESKTOP memory back in the day (However I cannot comment/rate their desktop memory these days). Every since they got into the SSD scene I've purchased 7 SSDs from OCZ including;

(2) Vertex 60GB
(2) Vertex 2 60GB
(1) Vertex 3 MAX IOPS 120GB
(2) Vertex Plus 120GB

My two most recent purchases being 2 of their Vertex Plus 120GB SSDs and they work great. A very good budget SSD with good speeds, good reliability and good customer service. Since I've purchases 7 SSDs only 1 of them died and I was able to ADVANCE RMA it with OCZ and have a new drive within 4 days. Their RMA process and Customer Service was easy to deal with and prompt.

Performance wise, this drive does the job, especially when I got it for $99 after MIR.

We ordered 5 of these for the office. Of the 5, 3 have failed within their first year (not recognized in BIOS after a blue screen) and had to be RMA'd. The other 2 haven't been installed yet. All had the latest firmware updates done (easy with this drive, not so much with the other OCZ drives).

What we saved by going with these over something like the Intel drives we've easily lost in hours restoring/re-installing software on the machines with failed drives. They're pretty good about replacing them, but it's ridiculous to have to RMA nearly all of them at one point or another. It's to the point I'd rather throw them away than risk installing them in another machine when replacements arrive.

As with most everything, you get what you pay for. This SSD is an entry-level model, but still greatly outperforms my 7200 rpm HDD. I am using it inside my MacBook Pro with an opti-bay enclosure, and it's working well so far!

Believe the other reviews... I tried to use this to bring some life into an old laptop. I recently built a new desktop - with SSD for the first time - and it was screaming fast. I have this old laptop, now nearly ten years old, and the hard drive died. I thought I'd get some pep into it by reinstalling the OS on an SSD. I'm fairly saavy, tried to installed a lightweight version of Ubuntu (lxle 12.04), and while the install went OK, it would not boot. I read the low reviews on this, and figured "hey, I know enough to upgrade the firmware, and if I can get a fast drive for my old laptop, it'll be worth it," but I simply had an aggravating evening trying to get it to work.

So I figured the firmware hadn't been updated, so I went ahead and did it by plugging it into the desktop and using some of the firmware upgrade tools from OCZ on there. The firmware updated, and I installed my linux distribution on the my desktop, then moved the drive to the laptop and it wouldn't boot.

So I reinstalled again on the laptop, figuring perhaps the installer was installing drivers for different hardware when I installed it using the desktop system, but after installing again on the laptop, it sill wouldn't work. Very aggravating.

Will try to return and fall back to using a new HDD, sadly... was hoping to pep up the old system with SSD, but it's hard to find inexpensive SATA I compatible drivers (yes, this is SATA II, but is supposed to be downward compatible with SATA I... AND it was seen and identified, partitioned and formatted and installed on by the installer, so that was not the issue).

So yes, believe these reviews that: 1) say you will need to upgrade firmware, and 2) say even then it still doesn't work. Perhaps if I was using XP or Windows 7 or something, it might have gone better... but that's not going to happen (and no, I'm not anti MS, I have 8.1 pro on my desktop - dual boot with linux, anyway).

I was concerned about purchasing an SSD that is a couple generations behind the newest. My concerns were quickly put to rest. I went from 90 second to 15 seconds boot time. My applications launch almost instantaneously. Switching my optical drive for an SSD was the best decision I have made in a long time. Instead of needing to replace my laptop in the next year, I feel I can easily get 2 more years out of it. This puppy is fast!!

I bought one of these used from someone else. When I first put it in the Macbook, I tried using Disk Utility to recognise it and it wouldn't. I tried again, and now it could see the drive, and it would start to paritition it, but then it would get hung-up midway. So, I put the drive in an external enclosure, partitioned it without problem, and then reinstalled it in a 2007 white Macbook and was able to install OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). Shortly after installation was completed and the installation program was asking me about my registration information, the screen went grey and wouldn't come back. I tried restarting the computer, and it gave me the dreaded image of a folder with a question mark in it, indicating that there was no hard drive available.

So, I thought I was screwed. Then I went onto OCZ's website and saw that there was a firmware update for it. My firmware was 3.50, and the update was to 3.55. I figured it couldn't hurt, so I pulled out an old PC (which you'll need in order to do the firmware update) and updated the firmware.

When I reinstalled the updated SSD in the Macbook, it was easily partitioned, I was able to complete the installation of Snow Leopard, and it has been going strong for a few days now. I did a hard drive speed test and I'm getting read and write speeds of about 126 MB/s, compared to a spinning hard drive which gets about 75 MB/s (at best).

The moral of the story is to just update the firmware. Many people are noticing a complete resolution of their issues when they update the firmware for this drive.
