I think in time SSD may be a standard. My laptop from Sony uses RAID 1 SSD and has worked great for nearly a year now. I'm guessin the OCZ don't have the same level testing performed on them. I would still consider other manufacturer's SSD drives -...

It's not a super fast drive. It is operating over USB so it will be limited to that speed (I knew this before I bought it). However it does operate faster than many other USB drives. I can't recommend it because of data corruption problems.
