You can clone the drive, if the cloning software knows about SSD's and align's it properly.


Meh...I wouldn't. Windows 7 does a different type of install for SSDs. It disables parts of the OS (like disk defrag super fetch, etc.) and enables Trim and AHCI for you.

OCZ Agility 3 240GB
OCZ Vertex 4 256GB
OCZ Octane 512GB
OCZ Vertex 2 60GB
OCZ Vertex 2 120GB

Drives that failed so far: None.

Seems the view on these is polarised. I know people that swear by them and people that have nothing but trouble with them.
Haven't heard anything bad about the 4th gen though.

It also makes the necessary changes on a clone. I had no problem when I cloned my hard disc to my SSD.
