Experience: 2 Months


Fast and reliable
I bought it as part of a build and either it came with or NCIX updated the firmware to 1.15. I had a problem at first but it was probably my own stupidity and inadvertently changed something in my bios. I got everything back on track and I now get:

SEQ 460.8....448.1

It says my review is too short, I don't know what to add except it seems reliable.

Experience: 3 Weeks


SandForce Fast
Comparable performance to the Vertex 3 at a lower price point
I bought my first SSD two years ago when the original Vertexes came out with the Indilinx firmware, and I've bought, used and sold dozens of SSDs since. Between desktops, laptops and servers I personally own 8 or 10 SSDs and love them all. Once you use an SSD as your boot drive you simply can't go back.

Intel's SSDs are nice, but priced too high without justification. I've yet to get a lemon from OCZ. I have also tried a couple batches of Kingston and a very high percentage died within the first year. I love OCZ's SSD products and their user forums are great.

Experience: 4 Days


relatively cheaper to get. Great everyday performance.
only async NAND, not as fast as sync NAND.
relatively cheaper to get. Great everyday performance. only async NAND, not as fast as sync NAND. But for everyday use it is just as good as Vertex 3.

Extremely Fast
Plenty of Space for a boot drive
Everything you would expect from an SSD
None so far
Good for a SSD, like the 6 GB/s speed, it rates 7.8 out of 7.9 on Windows 7. An excellent purchase for a boot drive.

Experience: 1 Weeks


boots extremely fast, scored a 7.9 on windows experience, until i find something better i will use this for all my builds
none so far
Best SSD i have used in the lower price range

Experience: 2 Days


Blistering speed
Ease of use
None so far
This is my first SSD and after a lot of research figured for what I needed this would be ideal, got it on sale for $119 after mir so the price was right.
So far it's been great, i plugged it in, installed windows and all my programs in a fraction of the time in would normally take.

Experience: 1 Months


It doesn't come with a 3.5" bracket.
My Solid3 came with firmware 2.13w, so I didn't have to install anything. I am not even tapping the full potential of my drive. I am on an old nForce4 chipset (no AHCI, SATA II only), and the HDD gave it a new lease on life.

So far everything has been smooth. No BSOD, no hang, and the install was quick an painless.

The $20 MIR ($18 effectively)came in already, but I opted for the quick rebate which cost me an extra $2.
