I have this drive. I'm an average when it comes to tech, and I found it a really frustrating and lengthy process to get this SSD working. The computer wouldn't recognize the drive until I updated the firmware. That would have been fine except the firmware update process was unbelievably lengthy and unnecessarily complicated.
I don't have any other experience with OCZ, but for me this was enough.
by the way, I installed two different drives from other manufacturers in two other laptop computers with absolutely no problems. I don't know if it's the firmware or what, but the other thing is this drive seems slower. It's SSD so it's still fast enough for my purposes, but I find it a tad slower than the other two.
Im not a hater but the fact that there are so many bad review past and current is scary specially considering this usually would be an OS drive which tends to have most of your current data on it.
Is there anyway to mirror this to a partition on a mechanical drive? such that you always have a backup incase of a worst case scenario?
You can also move My Documents (and My Music/etc...) to a mechanical drive. Just right click on My Documents, go to the location tab, and pick something on your mechanical drive. You should still do regular backups, but I've found a nice split is to keep my OS/Programs on an SSD and my data on a mechanical drive.
