I've been running an OCZ Agility 3 for almost a year now with not a single issue and impressive performance. If OCZ was producing junk I don't think Seagate would have been looking to buy them out.

Same here. I have 5 Agility's drives currently. 4 of them are in raid and one in my work laptop. Looks more like operator error to me. Stop flashing over to the lastest and greatest firmware. If it works leave, it alone.

Well now careful with that statement.
Seagate DID after all buy Maxtor.
From my personal experience - my agility has ALWAYS been quirky and I am considering an RMA as lately.
like it or not the ocz drives are either great or full of problems - but if you buy an intel or a crucial there is no black marked track record. Many people never have a problem with ocz - but their number of failures and firmware bombs do not compare to top tier ssd competition. They make a drive that's fast, cheap, and "generally" ok for most people.
This particular drive is something I had been pitching for years. Whether or not it's perfectly executed I think it's great that it even exists and I would love to see it more common place. It's not perfect by needing to be a boot drive - but the logistics of what gets written to ssd and what to disk really is a difficult controller to program. It needs to be predictive and analyze live data where hard drives mostly wrote more raw in the past.
