This review is from: OCZ Core Series OCZSSD2-1C64G 2.5" 64GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Freakin fast and quiet. Excellent as OS drive once I got the right driver.
Cons: Slow installation of apps to this drive as most of you all know due to inherent slow write speed. I had to go through the OCZ support forum to read user's tip to get this working to it's expected speed. It took me couple of tries (days and nights) to get things right.
Other Thoughts: I had the first drive installed as an OS and took me couple of Vista x64 installations to get it right. When I bought the 2nd drive, I decided to put it in RAID 0 using ICH10 from mobo and of course reinstall the OS. It worked as I would like. The first recommendation I can give to all is to add the driver for Intel Storage Manager before the Vista installation. I also disabled the following: prefetch, superfetch, hibernation, page file (have 8GB RAM), defrag, 8.3 filename support, Windows and drive indexing and search, storing browser caches to another drive (will put this to ramdrive soon), redirected my download folder to my regular HD.
