drive failing 12/10/2011 5:21:24 PM

Pros: Very fast boot times

Dead after a month 11/7/2011 10:15:08 PM

Pros: Very quick in my MacBook Pro, which only supports 1.5Gbps SATA. I was able to run multiple applications and hard disk intensive operations at the same time, such as performing a Time Machine backup while running Windows in Parallels, without performance issues. Boot times were about 5 seconds under OS X Lion.

Cons: The drive died after about a month of use. Purchased on 9/20/11, died on 11/4/11. After attempting to troubleshoot Mac until I was certain it wasn't my laptop, I looked online concerning the drive and found many many many reviews where this particular drive model dies at a very young age.

Overall Review: My faith in OCZ has been rocked by this drive, not only from my experience but others as well. This is the first OCZ product I have had issues with, and hopefully will be the last, otherwise my next OCZ product will be my last.
