    OCZ's faster than butter as a storage medium. Good enough.

    Even I couldn't have a problem with these SSDs! :D I believe OCZ came out of its doldrums long ago and would be proud to own one of their drives.

    The VX500 is stellar, no issues at all with these units.
    Haven't tried the other ones, but, I see no reason why they wouldn't be just as good.

    This is not the OCZ of the past, Toshiba has really turned things around for them.
