OCZ Vertex EX 120GB
Pros: AFTER flashing to firmware 1.5 drive performance is great. Benchmarks using CrystalDiskMark are always repeatable and show great performance.
Cons: 1. Using firmware 1.4 or 1.41 was disappointing and I almost RMA'd my drive. (This is no longer valid since 1.5 FW has been released).
Other Thoughts: PRICE is high for what you get

Best upgrade I've ever done. WIN.
Pros: Applications load insanely fast. OSX boots a lot faster. No more waiting for Firefox to load up, no more waiting at all. You can open up 20 applications at once and they all load up super fast.
Cons: Price.. but it's worth it more to buy an SSD for your laptop than it would be to upgrade CPU.
Other Thoughts: I've only used the SSD for about 2 hours now. I felt that the performance it gave me was so incredibly significant that I had to write my first review ever. This one is super pricey, but it's the best out there. The benefits of speed are still found with the lower priced OCZ SSD drives, since the factor that makes my computer so much faster is the fact that there is zero seek time.
