just out of curiosity in your review you say you don't care about ocz is there any particular reason why?
Personaly I still think ssd's are to expensive for the size, I'd like to see 250g below £100 b4 I'd consider buying 1

I recently read another review which tested the GTX and the vanilla Neutron side by side, and they were very close in most benchmarks. Close enough so that the cheaper version seems like it might be the better value (~$45 in the difference for 240GB here in Canada).

Any thoughts, Tom?

(Also, I can't thank you enough for all the review vids - they've been extremely helpful while I've been gathering parts for my first PC build.)

Seems to be a awesome drive.
But I've a doubt in my mind over the reliability of new LM87800 controller.

Any news on the issue?

I have been seeing a lot of poor reviews to the exact complication you were describing about the drive being laggy; Did you ever find out what was the issue? I am looking to buy ASUS Maximus V EXTREME LGA 1155 Intel Z77 and was curious if this drive would not work properly;

Yeah the problem with OCZ is that you cant trust it 100%.

The new vertex 4 with indilinx controler might be a diferent story, but about previous versions I wont recomend anyone to get them. I really regret have bought mine since I had some issues(and still do sometimes) of sistem frozing, etc. I had to turn OS HDD plug and play to be able to be stable.

Next time I get an SSD is gona be corsair or Intel for sure.

Neutron Series GTX 120GB

Just bought Neutron Series GTX 120GB version off the back of this excellent review by Tom. I was looking forward to the improvement in performance but sadly I got the opposite. Now I am experiencing lag within windows 7. Has anyone experience the same issue ?

How do you have it installed?
SATA 6? AHCI or IDE?

Could just be a faulty unit I support - or maybe even a dodgey sata cable?

^^^Be config problem, IE: user/driver related issues.

Id put money on the fact you are using a 2011 board.
