I've been thinking about getting an OCZ one for a while now to run Windows 7 on when I upgrade in a couple of weeks. But, I'm considering hanging on for a while for the prices to drop further as they've not fallen much in the last year. The Intel ones are extortionately priced!

I installed a OCZ Vertex SSD - 60GB - 64mb cache last month.
Running Windows 7 exclusively on it and it's fast. Boots up in a blink of an eye.

It's installed in a mixed system of SATA drives.
Triple booting XP Pro 32bit, Vista Ultimate 64bit and Windows 7 RC 64bit

No problems at all. .

I am thinking of buying an SSD for the two computers that I am going to be installing Windows 7 on, once it is released. Decent prices now and I don't need a lot of space since it is just going to be Windows and applications so can spend a little more for speed and cache.

Plan on buying one on these when I build my next computer for OS/applications. I'm also going to put one in the media center I'm building.
