I don't blame you one bit for not trusting OCZ. Like I said, they're not my first choice. Intel makes the most reliable SSDs out there and I'm sure it will serve you well.

It will work best if you do a fresh installation of Windows on it instead of transferring your OS partition from your platter drive. I know it's pain, but it'll be worth it. Before you install Windows, make sure that your drive controller is set to AHCI in the BIOS. If your motherboard has its own AHCI drivers, you'll want to put them on a thumb drive and install them right after format and right before you install Windows (there's an "install driver" option). Otherwise, Windows 7's AHCI drivers will do just fine.

Enjoy the drive. I'll be interested in hearing about the difference it makes, which will most likely be dramatic.
