The Vertex 3 Max IOPS is not a drive for the faint hearted, and people on a budget may opt for the cheaper Agility 3 based drives, but with anything, if you want the best, then you must be prepared to pay for it, and that’s exactly what we saw today, though we do feel that a lot of consumers may mis

I have the 240GB version of this unit and along with the masses of people that can't update the firmware on this I now own a wonderful OCZ branded paperweight. (note, the other size is no longer listed on the site) Within 2 months the unit degraded to the point where I would blue screen in the OS every few days and I just lived with it. It was a non-production computer for gaming and I simply didn't care. I read that the firmware update needed would require me to re-install the OS and I had no interest in doing so at the time.
With this SSD in your laptop/desktop, you'll be sure open everything very fast! Good for people who are impatient to open Windows 7 and games. You'll get enough space to install Windows 7 and all the basics programs and principal games that you're used to play. I recommand it!
I'm on my 3rd firmware update, and I use it as an OS drive so it's a pain. Upgraded from a Vertex 2 that ran great. The Vertex 3 Max IOPS started fine, but then started having BSOD problems once or twice a week. Cannot be quick reset, you need to do a full hard reset for the system to see the drive again - on boot it would say "no disk found" until hard reset.
After several hours I was unable to find a stable configuration. I used a Vertex 2 for 8 months without any problems. When I installed the 3 Vertex, BSOD every 5 minutes ... Tested with a MB Gigabyte P67A-UD5-B3 and an CPU Intel i7 2600K.This is not a criticism against OCZ since all manufacturers who use the Sandforce controller have the same problems.

If you have anything that auto starts when you turn on your computer, make sure its installed on the SSD. It's amazing how quick everything is. Don't install everything on this, use a second mechanical drive for Games, movies, etc.
