Noticeable speed improvement upon installation
Took some work setting up (firmware upgrade)
First I'll start with the bad part. When I tried to install Windows 7 on this SSD, there were a lot of errors which differ from time to time. Upon upgrading to the latest firmware (involving fumbling with jumpers), it finally worked.

Now the good part. Game loading is a breeze, typically a few seconds. Windows 7 boots up in about 20 seconds or so. Didn't benchmark the transfer speeds, but for normal usage I am very satisfied.

fast os drive, 75 bucks woo hoo, great read speeds and write speeds.
not as fast as vertex 2 but hey for 25 bucks less who cares.
using this as an os drive for my htpc and i couldn't be happier, well i could if i had more storage drives in it. ocz really makes a quality ssd and it shows, its well constructed and it looks good, and operates as well as it looks. definitely a great purchase and NCIX is the best.

Great drive works great in a RAID 0 array
Not as fast as my vertex 2 but i knew that, also doesn't come with a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter
im using this as an os drive for my amd vision computer i built, its quite fast and for 75 bucks you can't go wrong. i like ocz products, they are quite good, and quality wise these are my fourth ocz ssd's and i have never had a problem.knock on wood.

Difficult to update  firmware.
Bought this drive to replace the mechanical in my new Laptop. Works flawlessly, even though I am having trouble enabling trim on my chipset, have not experienced any slow down yet. Perhaps the ocz automatic gc is working properly.

-Amazing sale price
-At the price? absolutely nothing
The sale price was amazing... 100 dollars before rebate. This is a significant step up for me from my Samsung F3 1T (1 of the fastest 7200rpm hdd's). Sure it's not as fast as the new Sandforce stuff... but for 50% less price, this is definitely a great drive.

Experience: 3 Months
- A lot faster than any mechanical 2.5" drives. I replaced my notebook's HDD with this drive and you can really notice the difference in boot time and even application loading time
- Size, I know the main point of these drives are not for mass storage, but you are really looking at ~50gb after installing an OS. If you want to dual-boot or install VMs, it gets even smaller.
- 4-stars because at the current price, it might make more sense to get the Vertex2 instead, since that one uses the Sandforce controller which is supposedly faster.
- Perfect size for a boot drive in a system which also uses some mechanical drives for storage.
- If you are using for in a notebook which can only mount 1 2.5" drive, might want to evaluate the storage you need and consider the 90G or the 120G versions.

Quick drive!
Nil so far..
Make my rig real snappy!! Bought one as OS drive and no more tapping fingers in front of the screen. With some tweaks the OS is down to 10G and you still have some room to play with. Best investment on hardware so far.

Blazing Fast
Awesome price for entry SSD
Great Warranty by OCZ
Old controller, but still good
Can't go wrong with the price of this drive. If you want to test out SSD but don't want to pay the full price for SandForce, then this is the route to go.

Although not as fast in transfer rates, its boot up time is similar to SandForce and this is still a good buy. Although at this point, I will have to say the extra $15 for SandForce is worth it.

If you don't have an SSD yet, hold out and wait for the new SandForce controller Phoenix.

-Did I mention this was fast

This little addition made a big difference in my PC. Installed W7 64 and wow everything seems much faster. I think the biggest differences were boot and productivity apps like MS word, excel and the like. I have a few profiles setup and when I actually log in the background apps load super fast. None of that here’s your desktop but you can’t work yet because windows has to load all of your load on boot/login apps.

Love this drive!

Fast, quiet, cool.
Bought this just to spoil myself pretty much, I've wanted a SSD for a while now. Plus it was selling for 99 (after rebate) which I thought was a GREAT deal. So far I am very impressed. Windows 7 starts up and shuts down verrrrryyy fast. Also things just respond faster overall. Games also load very quickly as well! Obviously there are faster drives out there but for the money this one is definitely worth it!
