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!
