Installed in seconds few, quick format, cloned in 5 minutes with Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) and then up and running. Windows picked the drivers immediately.

The speed is out of this world, with a full array of programs my system now boots in 36 seconds, spends as long going through the BIOS set-up as it does loading windows! Windows performance score on my system for the SSD is 7.1.

Not one issue at all in installing, very smooth, windows drivers disabled de-frag for the drive and the advice from OCZ is to just go with the stock windows drivers. One very happy teddy bear!

I would recommend this unit to anyone who gets fed up watching windows load, programs from the system drive now load almost instantaneously, no sound, no heat, 249Mbs read, 203Mbs write.

Cracking service from Overclockers as always, DPD (delivery service) stated on the tracker that the unit would be delivered at 1238 today, it was 3 minutes late, and (tongue in cheek) that's all I've got to grumble about!

Before I start, assuming you get one with 1.4 firmware or above (which you should, mine was 1.5) you have the advantage of TRIM in Windows 7. TRIM just helps it run more efficiently for those of you who don't know.

But the actual product as it is, it is just so fast! Cold boot is 30 seconds, restart is about the same and thats including the shut down process. I got the Akasa Dual 2.5" SSD/HDD Mounting Kit to mount it and it works fine with that. Scores 6.5 on the Win7 WEI for those of you who use that as a bench. All in all an amazing product, I would recommend this to anyone who like me loves a stupid amount of speed and power in their machine.

superb drives, quick quiet and small, would have been nice to get a 2.5 to 3.5 inch bracket with them but cant really grumble at all

Have one of these as system disk. Very nice - flashing was a breeze (simple even with data on it). With 1.4 and now upgraded to Win7 it flies. Gives a 6.8 performance indicator.

They do need watching tho as trim isnt perfect yet (OS).

huge performance increase

I bought 2 of these to set them up in a Raid0 configuration to run with windows 7. Easy to set up latest firmware (1.3) already installed. ok compare old technology of an IDE drive that can read/write between 30-35mb/sec to these vertex ssd that can read at 500mb/sec and write at 400mb/sec! worth every penny!!

Fast, quiet, cool and expensive

I have just installed this hard disk in my MacBook Aluminum (Now macbook pro). The most problematic phase was flashing the hard drive. The necessity of a jumper for the first flash was a nuisance, and I was disgruntled to learn that the hard disk is not supplied with one. For the price of the hard disk this is unacceptable.
Once up and running, my mac absolutely flies. Boot up time is less than 20 seconds. There is no hard disk thrashing - the computer is almost completely silent. Programs and applications run very quickly and smoothly. I will be buying more of these when the prices begin to fall sub

I bought one of these thru OCZ (excellent shipping/delivery thru DHL as usual) last week and it's by far the best investment i've ever done. It simply decimates the 2 7200rpm drives I had in RAID and the windows boot times are simply amazing (I had to use my laptop yesterday with the normal HDD and the slow boot almost drove me crazy...) - once you buy an SSD you can never go back IMHO....

Excellent product and the support from OCZ for the vertex drives is amazing too.. these drives now manage themselves when idle so they remain at 100% speed all the time (240MB/s Read and 200MB/s write)..

What else can I say, two or three of these vertexes in RAID will simply destory anything you throw at them
