I saw it earlier - sold out now. Great price at $1/GB. I haven't heard of reliability good or bad of these.

I'm not sure what the difference is between Vertex 2 and Vertex Plus, but I have two OCZ SSD's that I'm happy with, one a 120ghz Vertex 2.

Because your Mac will reboot in seconds and apps launch instantly. But a person really needs both...an SSD and a 500 gig 7200 rpm. AND a 1Tb firewire 800 external.
