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)

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 .

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.

I have been using a 120gb vertex 2 since it came out and it was a beast at the time, I have been eyeing a replacement for my ageing 10,000 rpm velociraptor in the hopes of going completely silent. After reading some of the reviews for this particular drive I thought I'd take the plunge.

I was a bit apprehensive as the previous generation was plagued with problems, one of the main reasons I didn't get a Vertex 3. I've had the drive for about a month now so I cant comment on how well its going to run in the long-term but because it's using a custom marvel controller and their own firmware things should only improve with time (such as read/write speeds and reliability).

The first thing you will notice is how crazy fast this drive really is, I mean extracting a 9GB file takes less then 2 mins!. Games load in less than half the time my previous SSD could do and a fraction of the time compared to my 10,000 RPM HDD...

Edit:

Just found out they've released new firmware to boost performance! The biggest jump is in write speeds. In The 128GB drive it's increased from 200MBps to 420MBps. The 256GB now writes at 465MBps, whereas previously it was just 380MBps.

Edit 2: Firmware v1.5 Makes the drive even faster, and has an automatic turbo mode for when you're running less than 50% capacity.
