For some reason, I could not find a product page on OCZ's website. But I was able to find some specs:

Performance:
Max Sequential Read1 540 MB/s
Max Sequential Write1 420 MB/s
4K Random Read2 60,000 IOPS (125 MB/s)
4K Random Write2 27,000 IOPS ( 70 MB/s)

Maximum Sequential Speeds are determined using ATTO
Small file I/O performance is measured using Iometer 2008, Queue Depth 32, 4KB Aligned

Standard 3 year warranty.

OCZ is nearly bankrupt based on this report I read however.. so I'd be concerned about that warranty holding water.. they're about to be kicked off the NASDAQ because they can't tell how much money they've made/lost for the last 2 quarters. Key staff (including the CFO) have jumped ship.

I'd have bought this if I hadn't read the details of their problems first :(

OCZ's financial situation seems pretty dicey according to that article, but I have never had problems with their RMA or warranty processes. I've even had DRAM, which OCZ stopped making in 2011, replaced not too long for a client of mine.

Why is it that this product doesn't even exist on OCZ's website? Seems like a one off product.

After my experience with OCZ's Agility II, I will never again touch one of their SSDs. This one has been nothing but trouble. The RMA process isn't bad, but it doesn't help when the product itself is terrible.
