Experience: 1 Months


Good quality SSD from OCZ.
Bought this as my OS drive, and while it's my first SSD so my experience is limited, I'm loving it so far. Loading games / transitions in games are so much faster.

OCZ has some very good guides on maintaining the drive (I use Win7 64bit) which I followed to get further tweaks.

Experience: 3 Months


Very small, low heat. Very fast.
Only 120GB, small capacity VS cost. But what the hell, you want to play, you gotta pay.
This is the first SSD I have tried and am 100% satisfied with performance. Much faster than any HDD I have. I installed my OS only on it (Win7Pro-64)and a couple important programs, namely BF2 and BBC2. My documents and the rest of low priority programs reside on a partitioned HDD. Seems to be a good configuration

Experience: 11 Months


Best of the Vertex 1st Gens
'Relatively' affordable compared to other 100GB SSDs
Indilinx controller has great garbage collection, even in RAID 0
OCZ has been one of the best SSD providers on the market. The Vertex 120 is as close to the X-25 Intel as you're going to find performance wise, but has quite a bit better capacity.
The Indilinx barefoot controller has way better properties than the JMicron or Sandforce in TRIM and garbage collection. If you're going to RAID SSDs vertex is the only way to go.

Experience: 21 Days


fast reads, decent writes and cheap.
Annoying mail in rebates, no case badge.
I bought one of these and have been very happy with it. I couldn't believe how fast my computer boots up!!! It was easy to install and haven't any issue with it. Getting the MIR was a pain though.

I would recommend these to anyone and want to buy another one.

Experience: 7 Months


Fast, silent
Expensive still given that this model has been out for awhile
Got the drive for 399.00 and it has been rock solid for more than 1/2 a year. It's read speeds hit around the 200MBps mark and the write speeds for me hit around the 160MBps mark. A well performing drive. if you have the money it is worth the performance increase, as games and game levels load very quickly. It would be nice if the prices come down one day, but...for now it is a great choice in this price range

Experience: 2 Days


Great price with the MIR!
Came with the latest firmware already installed (FW1.5) with TRIM (Win7 needed for TRIM support)!!!
Great support from OCZ forums for "how-to" guides and help!
You have to buy a separate 2.5" to 3.5" adapter to install it in a desktop.
I just installed it and I was glad to see that it came with the latest firmware (version 1.5)that supports TRIM in Windows 7.
No issues with the installation, it's pretty much straightforward, but you have to read a little bit on SSD's prior to install. I installed Win7 Home Premium 64bits on it.

It's really fast, applications open up right away, games initiate faster and game levels are loading faster too.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Great performance at a good price. Good Linux support in teh OCZ forums.
Slower then the Intel x25-M.
This is one of the fastest drives out there, second only to teh Intel x25-M. At 299$ with MIR, I had to pick it up. Use it as my boor drive + games in windows 7. Boot performance is not much better in windows 7, but applications load much faster. The biggest improvement is in games, where are transitions are almost seamless, and load time are drastically cut down. For a gamer, I would say this should be your 2nd upgrade after a GPU.

I should note that I did not do a cleaninstall of windows 7. I used the backup and restore built in to win 7. This drive shipped with firmware 1.5

Experience: 2 Weeks


-quicker boot times and applications loading
-lower power consumption
-fw update  hassle
Bought the drive to see the speed boosts and its pretty good. Everything feels much quicker. One thing I didn't like was the hassle of updating the firmware. It should be fine now but I had to wait for OCZ to have their firmware updated to include the updater for my type of ssd.

Experience: 20 Days


Outstanding performances
Very fragile
I bought this drive with my new PC, assembled by NCIX. When I openned my box to add the 1To drive I had before, the plastic sheathing that surrounds the pins for the power connection of the OCZ drive was broken. I carefully removed the drive to put it in a safer place then I realized the sata pin was broken too.
conclusion :
1 - The connectors are VERY fragile
2 - NCIX team has badly handled the drive when they assembled the PC.

In any case I cannot prove I have not broken it by myself, then I have lost $400.

Stupid fast.
None, except for price, but the price is worth it IMO.
All these years we've been upgrading CPU's RAM, bus interfaces, etc etc. NOTHING I have upgraded in the past 5 years makes as much of a difference as this SSD!
I bought two and put them in RAID0, and the speed is even sweeter. Loading games is much faster, Win7x64 boot is a few seconds, etc. These should have been available 5 years ago.

Data processing a large number of small files at work used to take 2 minutes on my 7200 platter drive - - it is now only 6 SECONDS! That's a TWENTY-fold increase in efficiency/speed!

If you're a gamer or power user/hard drive thrasher, do not feel bad about spending the money - you're helping this tech develop and in a few years we'll be laughing at the idiocy of platter drives.
