Question Does anyone have a working OCZ SSD?

I just got the OCZ Agility 3 120gb. Had it for a week, still up and running, no BSOD or anyhting.
BUT, EVERY SINGLE REVIEW I read, is about death within days.

Does anyone here have a working OCZ SSD?
If so, how long have you had it, and how many crashes/BSOD's do you experience?

I have a Vertex 2 and it is fine. Had it for around 6 months. Currently being used as a caching SSD

Experience any BSOD's in the beginning? (I'm guessing you used it for your OS at some point)

Been using a Vertex 3 120GB on my ASUS P8P67-B3 Deluxe as my OS drive. Win7 64bit.
No issues after I set my SATA 6G port to hot plug enabled. It stuttered on heavy I/O before I changed the setting.
Still running on the original launch firmware.

Vertex 2 in my desktop running Windows 7 for about a year now and a Vertex 1 in my laptop also running Windows 7 for around 1.5 years. No issues at all.

Agility and Solid models do use lesser quality components, so that could be why they die sooner? I know the free OCZ Onyx I got died within a few months, but I RMA'd it and it's been fine since.

So you can remove and plug in hard drives while the system was on.
