Pros: As it is a solid state drive, It is quiet and fast.
Cons: It arrived with firmware 3.50 installed, which lost data constantly. I would install an OS, reboot, and the system would report it could not find the boot files. After reviewing the forums, I determined a firmware upgrade to version 3.55 was necessary. Unfortunately, the live CD iso file the manufacturer provided had lots of problems. I found an alternative live USB iso file and it worked, but only after I installed the drive in a different system where I could go into the BIOS and tweak the SATA mode. It took me a couple days of messing around with trial and error attempts before I could get the drive to work properly. Here is the link to the forum you will need if you want to get the USB live iso that worked for me: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?95716-Vertex-Plus-firmware-3-55
Other Thoughts: If you're willing to put lots of time into troubleshooting and updating the firmware, this can be a good drive.READ FULL REVIEW
