      Didn't hear about it until now. Looks like Intel's SSD Caching or similar to what Seagate did with their Hybrid drive. The latter worked pretty well for frequently used data. Obviously, there is no improvement when it came to large files or seldom accessed files.

      So that OCZ that I bought was DOA... Getting a full refund and never buying a OCZ product again.

      They have a bad reputation for a reason.

      Got a 128Gb Crucial M4 for my work laptop (a Dell D830). It came with a 120Gb, 5400 RPM Toshiba drive. Huge improvement. O/S is WinXP.

      I also got a 240Gb Intel 520 for my personal laptop (Samsung Series 700Z). It replaced the factory Samsung 750Gb drive. Not such a huge improvement O/S is Win 7. Did a fresh install last night.

      Got a Samsung 840 series SSD for the laptop; swapped the Intel into my desktop - half partition for Win 7 and the other for Ubuntu.

      FYI - Both Intel and Samsung came with SSD tools; the Intel also had a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter to mount the SSD. The Crucial is no frills, but running well.

      I bought the new version of the Intel 520 last week on sale at Best Buy for $110! 120 gb. So less than a dollar per gig.

      I put it in my Late 2012 Mac Mini and it absolutely flys!
