Pros: it boots up from power to desktop in 10 sec with ultra fast boot enabled (MB AsRock Z97 ex6)...in comparison to SATA III SSD - noticeable improvement of storage performance, all relevant benchmark tests are passed with highest scores...so happy...
Cons: to make it visible in BIOS and bootable for OS installation, well that is another story...You have to do your research if you want to avoid a lot of pain..
Other Thoughts: only for enthusiasts, other PC users should wait for next generation of Intel CPU and chipset, it will natively support hardware like this one...

Pros: Much Better than Old Hard Drive. Very good Bang for your Buck
Cons: None so far just I get a Read speed of around 510mbs but I only get 120mb write. I don't know if It is something in my settings isn't tweaked but until I figure out what is going on. Im only giving 4 eggs
Other Thoughts: Great SSD came fast worked right out of the box. Its just a little slow write might just be me.

Pros: Low price for the off chance you get a good one.
Cons: Dead on arrival. Looking at other reviews indicates this is common.
Other Thoughts: 30 day warranty ready to catch you out. High number of DOA reviews indicates these things aren't being tested well.

Pros: I want to start with the fact that I own other OCZ SSD’s and I have had no issues with them. I can remember buying my first 60 Gig for like $200 my how times have changed, For the Price point and amount of storage that you get you can’t go wrong. This little dive packs a punch and really does deliver speed in a small sleek package. I have an open face Case and the sleek look of this drive fits right in. I know that most people only see their drives when they install them or remove them but with my custom build you can see my SSD right up front. So If you’re going to be doing an open case or high end build the drive is nice looking and you won’t have to worry about hiding it behind anything. “Acronis 2013 Disaster Recovery software” well it was very nice of OCZ to include this with the drive a nice feature software that adds value to your purchase. Now let’s talk speed and performance, Speeds on this drive are what you expect from any SSD, fast and consistent. I was able to burn a 2.4 Gig move to this drive in a standalone configuration in just over 2 minutes. With an OS running on the drive at the same time it took about 3 so over all that is not bad. I have not had any hick ups with this drive and by saying that I mean it has not crashed, bogged down, or lost files so I am very happy with this drive and YES I would recommend it to friends or clients.
Cons: “Acronis 2013 Disaster Recovery software” the software itself is not the con but the way you have to enter the software key and the setup. You have to enter a 64 digit code to install the software I am not sure if you have ever had to read a code and enter that code into boxes but after about 20 digits you get supper board doing it so they really need to come up with a hot fix for this. Recovery software is not that important to me I use a verity of back up process that negates this software.
Other Thoughts: For what you get at the price you pay you really can’t go wrong with this SSD, I have had OCZ in the past and have never had any issues with them I honestly can’t say that about my other SSD’s. Good speed and performance, a good reputation not sure what else you could want? I do have to mention that I have never had to deal with their customer service but I have been reading and it appears to be good. One big thing is to make sure that you install this drive on a Sata 3.0 if you don’t you will not see top notch performance out of this drive trust me I tried it.
