Pros:

* 441/378 MB/s max read/writes in ATTO.
* Installing my OS to the SSD from USB media took only a few minutes.
* Build quality is top-notch and in line with what I expected from a flagship model; doesn't feel cheap and overly plastic as other budget models SSD's from other brands.
* OCZ ditched Sandforce in favor of Indilinx Everest 2. Hopeful that this will help with the Vertex line's stability, as it's been questionable in the past.
* Stable for now, no BSOD's or dropping from the BIOS 2 weeks in.
* All the other goodies typical of any SSD: Silent, cool, fast, no moving parts, low power usage, etc.

Cons:

* OCZ did not have the OCZ Toolbox utility for the Vertex 4 line available at launch(still unavailable as of 24APR2012)
* Noticed some sluggish near-hard-locking while setting up an XP VM in Virtualbox; Not sure if the ISO and the VM itself both being on the SSD caused this to happen, but I did find it odd as this never happened in the OS when running a HDD. The issue stopped once the VM was set up and virtual disk access chilled out. I'll try again later with optical media and see if the problem can be reproduced.
* Screws included in the box are made of very soft metal. While you shouldn't need to screw down an SSD extremely tight, the screws should be a bit more resistant to stripping; Even more so when OCZ includes no extras, only 4 for the drive and 4 for the bracket.

Other Thoughts:

My experience is based on the following specs:

Gigabyte P67A-UD3-B3 ; F9 BIOS
Core i5-2400 @ stock
16GB RipjawsX 1333mhz
eVGA GTX 570
Fresh install of Win7 x64 SP1
