If it behaves just like the Synapse I'll be all over this. I'd be willing to pay $30-50 just for the Dataplex software if it had no limitations and I could pair it with any SSD I desired. If you need a bit of info about how much difference these things can make take a look here - http://www.guru3d.com/article/ocz-synapse-cache-ssd-review/7 - it can be pretty drastic for tasks you perform repeatedly like playing the same game or accessing the same applications.

if they're anything like OCZ's drives I'd stay far far away. OCZ's drives have the highest RMA rate of any drive in history. When they work they're the best you can get. Problem is only about 1 out of every 20 sold, works.

Then I must be lucky as i've bought 4 new Vertex 3's and all work fine still.

Right now OCZ's Vertex 3 series are really good. Older series did have some problems but they fixed it with firmaware updates and more mature products

Does anyone know if this will work on a HDD that is the non-OS drive? I have my OS on a SSD and many large size games on a RAID
