SSD is great to have, got this on discount and it's very affordable SSD. Games and programs loading is such a big difference.
SSD still very pricey for the size of the gigs you get.
overall I liked the OCZ SSD, seems to be very stable so far and performance is good for the price you get

Experience: 3 Months
 Verified Owner
Like all SSDs, it is faster quieter, and requires less power than a HDD.
Reasonably priced
None really.
This SSD may not be as fast as the sandforce based drives, but it is a better value. I use a vertex 2 for my OS, and this drive for my games and apps. This is massive step up from a HDD and you won't regret buying it.

good alternative for non-trim based use
not as fast as sandforce based drive
I choose this drive because I needed an ssd that had aggressive internal garabe collection, a self-maintenance feature that is important for users where trim is not an option.

Works great, came with the lastest firmware(1.6) and has good performance.

Make sure to do all the ssd tweaks to get the best out of your drive.

affordable for a 96 gb
a little slow compared to other SSD's
Overall, this is a great purchase and upgrade from ANY hdd. boot time is faster and can launch applications on the start. Makes the entire computer MUCH more responsive..

Best purchase i've made on a PC

Experience: 85 Days

Small, Fast,
None that i can find, well maybe too small
This was my first SSD and it is awesome, i have it as a boot drive but have enough space for antivirus software and 1-3 games and still have 30gigs remaining, i was not used to how small it is because i got a very small case, cant have a SSD 3.5 to 2.5 bay adapter so i set it on the bottom of my case, but the overall solid quality is good.

Experience: 3 Days


Cost (sale and rebate)
Drive is actually only 89.3GB's not 96GB's as advertised by OCZ.
Bought this drive on sale and including the 25$ mail in rebate this SSD is a great value. Tested my drive and I had sequential reads of 233MB's and sequential writes of 165MB's not too shabby.

I am very happy with this SSD, and I highly recommend it.

Experience: 4 Days

Speed of course
Easy transition from 5400 rpm laptop drive
0.1ms access time :)
~20s boot up from push of a button & 4 second power off from the click of shutdown.
Could always have a higher capacity, but I didn't buy this SSD for storage.
My first SSD. I now hope to buy one for my desktop sometime soon. These drives are great.

Here is a link to an HDTune bench I ran right after I installed Win 7 Pro x64 and the first round of Windows updates.

Perfect size for OS drive, faster than VRaptor
Cost, lack of 3.5" tray
Money well spent. While I felt it was necessary to point out that this is faster than a VRaptor it did not feel like a "night and day" changing experience. I benched the drive with Crystal DiskMark and it the results were similar to others, which is a good thing. Did not have any issues with installing OS, applications, etc. Did not experience stuttering or slowdowns. I've also used Windows 7 optimization tool from OCZ forums and haven't had any issues yet. Also, note that this drive comes with the LATEST firmware (1.6) meaning you won't have to update  it right out of the box (for the time being). Has TRIM.

Fast and silent!
A little on the expensive side per GB. $180 with MIR for 96Gb
I chose this drive over the Kingston V-series 128Gb due to its fast(er) random read/write. It was a breeze to install on a MacBook Pro 13" (2009) 2.53 GHz with 4Gb RAM, just make sure you have a T6 screw driver in hand.

I upgraded from a stock 250Gb 5400RPM HDD, so the performance jump due to this SSD is huge. Applications launch in 1 to 2 seconds. Word 2008 takes longer at under 4 seconds. Aperture 3 runs very fast. (Photo editing is the reason I got this SSD). Plus, it's completely silent!

I'll be upgrading all my future laptops with a SSD for sure!

Price ($200 on sale, no rebate), performance, brand
None really.
I got two of these for RAID 0 action, paired with a p5q-pro motherboard. I ptu the page file on a 2x1TB raid 0 harddrive pair. The performance is fantastic. No complaints.
