Thinkpad W510 - Force 3 180 GB, intermittent freeze during bootup

Anybody here using the Force 3 180GB w/ a Lenovo W510 laptop? I'm having a problem with Win7 failing to bootup from time to time (hanging) with this SSD. It hangs sometimes before the 4 dots converge (doesn't even show the dots).

 

No problems at all with the original hdd. Quickboot is disabled in the BIOS.

 

I checked the firmware that it came with and it's the latest 1.3.2. The system is a clean install (system restore) of Win7 (x64) w/ the latest drivers. When the system does boot up though, it seems to work well until the next time I try to a reboot.

Upgraded to the latest 1.3.3 - doesn't really fix it.. Sometimes I get an error saying Disk Read Error during bootup, and sometimes - Win7 doesn't boot up at all (no dots).. But when it does boot up, seems to work just fine.

 

Will be returning this to Fry's - too unstable..
