Pros: fast boot and fast file management

Cons: price would love to afford the 1 TB of this

3 out of 5 eggsFussy...but ti works

Pros: Super fast benchmarks.

Cons: 1) Expensive.
2) Fussy to install. Installed for use as a boot drive, doesn't like many motherboards, BIOSes, certain PCIe slots on motherboards.
3) In 'normal' PC work, you won't notice any difference between this and any other fast SSD. Apparently it only shows it true capability under a heavy workload.

Other Thoughts: Got this working on the 4th PC I tried it on... and even on that it was a couple weeks of trial and error to figure out how to keep it running ... OCZ needs to be telling people about what won't/will work.....or maybe they don't even know.

Finally, blind luck, the answer (in the 1 of 4 PCs it would even boot from) was there can be no other PCIe card installed NEXT TO this card. I had a 3 PCIe slot MB, so I was able to accomodate it...I almost RMAed it, it was truly a pain.
