Andrew, Church Stretton home office use

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Does exactly what it says on tin. Plugged straight in, goes like the wind. Bit soon really to ask me about reliability, so far no problems.
Bad points:
Windows 7 not great at spotting an SSD rather than a hard drive. A list of optimum set-ups for Windows (cache settings, swop file etc) would have been nice

Bad points:
This SSD was totally useless with firmware version 1.5 because data was constantly getting corrupted. I was tempted to get it replaced but decided on trying the firmware update to 1.52. This proved to be far more difficult than I imagined as I discovered you cannot update the firmware via USB (I am using a USB 3.0 housing for the drive) connected to a MacBook Air. So I had to use an old PC (with SATA) in conjunction with a Linux based boot CD created from an ISO from the OCZ web site. After all this I did manage to get the firmware upgraded to 1.52 and the drive now appears to be working without data corruption. At least so far.

Faster performance for cost-effectiveness

SSDs have 100x greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.
Less power, silent operation

SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard drives, delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment.
Greater durability

The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards are shock resistant up to 1500 g, unlike HDDs with various moving parts.
