can't get it to work.
Although you've entered a valid promo code EMCYTZT859, your order does not currently meet the code's usage criteria.
Sorry, the promo code HARDOCP1X19A you've entered is invalid.

I'm new to SSD, got a few questions hopefully somebody can answer them for me:
-Is it easy to install a SSD like this one? Do I simply take out my existing SATA hard drive and swap this SSD in? Any jumper settings required?
-Do I have to go in the BIOS and change any settings before installing the operating system?
-Do I have to install any special motherboard driver to support such SSD?
-After installing the operating system, do I have to install any software that comes with the SSD?
-Does this SSD use the same SATA cable as a regular SATA HDD?
-Is it easy to flash the firmware?

|Edward266||Just got my Vertex 2 120GB today. I am currently using a Agility 2 60GB drive. I haven't had a single issue with the drive nor any firmware updates. My system is running like a champ. My system boots in 7 Seconds not counting POST time. Great Deal glad I jumped on it this time around.|

Update: Just got my "$49" OCZ Vertex Plus. I should've listened to the reviews... but no, I was blinded by the PRICE! aghhhh
dead on arrival. blue screen of death when booting windows. That's with the newest firmware version 3.5. Apparently this drive has compatibility issues with certain Intel processors or something? WTF kind of harddrive doesn't work for certain INTEL processors? I'm requesting a refund for this garbage.

I heard a lot of problems with the 3rd gen OCZ's SSD line, bluescreen of deaths, disappearing drives in BIOS, random freeze, ect.
I updated the firmware to the 2.15 and did a fresh windows 7 installation, so far no problems (knock on wood) with BSOD, data corruption, or death sleeps.
I did however made SSD "optimizations", such as disable superfetch, defragmentation, system restore, hibernation, ect ect

I have a z68 motherboard.
I have a 7200 500GB drive that i use for gaming.
Would it be worth it to pick up one of these cheaper drives for an SRT setup?
Any idea what kind of performance increase there would be for gaming?

|powertool4||Just got off live chat and had the rep apply the promo code after I placed the order. YMMV obviously but a good deal for me since I just need a 60gb drive for my netbook.|

I've had an OCZ Vertex since March 2010.
No issues getting rebate.
Not a single BSOD.
I never updated the firmware on the drive, just plugged it in straight out of the box and have been running Win7 flawlessly since day one.

And yeah, trading a few bucks for reliability on the hard drive is a poor trade.

Glad I missed out on this deal. Didn't have the money for it.
I hope this price point will become more common. All I've all got is a 160gb intel ssd, and its slowly running out of space.
