So, I just got my new OCZ Vertex 60gb solid state hard drive in the mail today. After taking the time to update to the newest firmware, aligning the drive, and doing a fresh install of Windows 7, RC 7077, I am pretty much blown away. The differences in read times are amazing. Windows 7 loads to a usable desktop in under 30 seconds. Photoshop CS4 loads in about 4 seconds. The thing is pretty sick. My laptop (Gateway P-y811fx) has two hard drives bays, and I have a 200gb Seagate Momentus 7200rpm drive for my data in the second bay, so the SSD is solely for the OS and apps. HD Tune shows almost a 3x improvement in transfer rates, and access time is 0.1 ms!!! If anyone was considering the jump to a SSD, I'd definitely recommend the Vertex. It's way cheaper than the Intell drives, and with the new firmware, it's proven to be a great drive!
