I brought 3! (2 for other people). The only problem I found was that the first one I got was installed to a 6 year old Acer TravelMate (not mine!) with an AMD chipset. I re-imaged fine and ran it for about 4 days flawlessly. Then it came up with a boot error and a quick run of chkdsk had it correcting file system errors for an age before refusing to boot again. I then tried a second drive with the same result. Even a fresh install resulted in the drives not being recognised by the windows installer, and yes, AHCI was enabled. Both drives worked fine in a 5 year old Acer with an Intel controller btw. I don't know what went on, but it was like a transplant patient rejecting an organ.

What I shall say is that they are a bargain so long as you have a modern-ish chipset to run them from.
Can I ask for an update on this? 1 year on how did those drives fair? Just wondering with a hands on experience of an OCZ drive.
They're running fine as far as I can tell. The older chipset laptop still would accept the drive, but in the more modern devices they are running sweet. I sort of know this as I've not been asked to fix any of them in this time!
