I found a very reasonably priced OCZ Summit 60Gb ($180 with free shipping). However, I saw on the OCZ forums that a number of people are having problems getting TRIM and garbage collection to work properly with these units.
Does anybody here own one of the OCZ Summit drives? Is everything running smoothly or are you experiencing problems? Would you recommend buying the Summit at this price or would you recommend against it?
I have the 120gb edition and as far as everyday function, its great. Beats a wd velociraptor in read speeds and is silent to boot! It has progressively "slowed" down since I purchased it awhile back, however. I've read that this is due to garbage collection etc. Its still fast but...doesn't seem ideal. OCZ has released a firmware update to correct these problems. I haven't flashed mine yet but it should help. I paid way more that 180 so it does seem like a good deal. Just my 2 cents; I'm no expert but I'm still happy with mine over hdd.
