Very Fast, Great Price
Pros: This drive is very fast, Windows boot in a matter of seconds even faster than booting from my Vertex 2. Loading times in games and programs is reduced greatly and there is enough space to install many games.
Cons: First drive I received failed after a short run time, didn't even get Windows 7 installed before the drive failed. However OCZ was very helpful and Newegg was quick to get the RMA out and replace the drive.
Overall Review: Other than the initial drive failure I have not had any issues with this drive or my other OCZ drives. The larger size and the lower cost definitely make this drive worth purchase despite the slightly lower read/write compare to the Vertex 4. Although recent firmware updates have increased the read/write speeds. It's good to see OCZ continuing to work towards improving this drive.
