Take care to check the model number carefully. My manager specifically ordered this model:

OCZ VTX4-25SAT3-512G

But received this one:

OCZ VTX4-25SAT3-512G.M

The .M model is using Micron flash not Intel and is a slower model - although nobody has mentioned just how much slower.

I have the correct model now, and it seems hugely fast, faster than the Crucial model a colleague has on comparable long running, disk heavy operations.

Of interest, our order was fulfilled by Amazon but sold by a different company, so I don't know if this was a genuine error or whether I should be cynical about the third party vendor - note that the .M model can be had for £310 so be careful.

Fantastic well priced drive that is significantly faster than other SSD's and of course HDD's.

=Important
Check the firmware version when you get the drive, you want to be on the latest firmware (1.5) BUT 1.3->1.4 is a destructive upgrade and will delete everything on the drive (important if you're going to install your OS on it)

Also important is that a 3.5" drive bay attachment is included, so you don't need to buy another (as I did)

This is a great drive and clearly faster than the Agility 3 which I also have. The only problem I have suffered is with it's incompatibility with the Marvell 9128 chip on my Gigabyte x58A-UD7 motherboard. Because the only way on this motherboard to use 6Gb/s SATA III speeds is via this chipset, I ran into problems. Strangely the OCZ Agility 3, works fine, but not the Vertex 4. I'm hoping that a further firmware upgrade improves the situation, but there are many reports on the internet about how bad this chipset is. Currently Vertex 4 using Firmware v1.5 Beta.

When the drive has been running on the more mature Intel ports, the drive has been problem free, no write errors and no freezing within Windows 7.

If you can afford it, this drive is great. And you see a real speed improvement over the Agility 3 which are available quite cheaply now in comparison.

Note, drive included 3.5" drive bay attachement.

First one I received didn't work and had to RMA (at my expense) which was a bit of a letdown, but the replacement which shipped within days worked perfectly. OCZ packaging is premium and you do get a 3.5" mount to install in a 3.5" drive bay. If, like me, you have a multi-card reader and a whole bunch of hidden cabling in your internal 3.5" bays, you might need to buy a 5.25 mount instead, no biggie and only a fiver on Amazon anyway.

Granted I did re-install windows from scrach so would expect the post-install startup and shutdown speeds to be faster, it's not completely down to the SSD. That said, my startup time has gone from ~2 minutes to ~20seconds, and shutdown has gone from ~40 seconds to ~6 seconds. I have also moved my 4gb Outlook pst onto the SSD to run from there rather than a separate SATA "My Docs" drive, and Outlook 2010 now launches and sends/receives on 3 mail accounts in a matter of seconds.

If you can justify the premium, don't mind a re-install and want a snappy and responsive system, buy this drive. Would another SSD have given me the same results? I honestly couldn't say, this is my first foray into the realms of SSD, but moving from using a high-spec 7200rpm/64mb cache SATA3 HDD to an SSD feels like the difference between dialup and broadband, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Two Tips: Keep an eye on the prices, I was watching them for around 3 months before buying (at £344) and have seen prices anywhere from £344-£480. They move around a lot for whatever reason, so if you're in no desperate rush, track it for a few weeks and catch it just right. Also if you google the unit for a bargain, beware the same model number with a .

Size: 64GB Verified Purchase
What can I say, I have been using Raid 0 with two 250gb HDD's for my OS, and Windows gave the system a score of 5.8 out of 7.9. The other components in my system were rated at 7.5 - 7.6, so the HDD's were holding my system back. I was looking at different sized SSD but decided on the 64gb version as I have no need for a 128 OS drive (well unless I raid two of these bad boys).

First off I made a mistake and installed the SSD and formated it in 'My Computer', silly mistake but it caused me to start the Win7 installation again, as by formatting it that way it was made into a simple partition (D'oh!). So I disconnected the other six HDD's (disconnected the power cable from each) and started the installation. Deleted the drives partition and created a new one for the OS. Then the fun began, I have a nice ASUS DVD drive and I have never heard it spin so fast. Honestly it was at full tilt and sounded like a turbo had kicked in to give it an extra push.

So some 15 min's later I am sat looking at a vanilla install of Win 7. Reconnected all the other drives, changed the boot sequence in BIOS and then see how fast this puppy boots. Well they are as fast as you think, within 15 seconds I was looking at my desktop (after all updates and SP1 and a defrag and cclean). The drive is super fast and no matter what part of windows you click, from My Computer to Administrator Tools are instant. The installation of just this tiny little drive has pushed my Microsoft score to 7.5, with the SSD giving me a score of 7.9.

To finish, the drive is tiny, smaller than I ever thought. The build quality is exactly what you expect from OCZ, you get a 2.5" - 3.5" metal plate to install into a normal HDD bay, luckily my PC case comes with SSD trays so I had a very quick installation process.
