[Sweclockers] EXTRA: Problems with Sand Force 2 - withdrawal in sight - Page 4

post #31 of 42
Hold the phone. I literally just purchased a 120GB Vertex 3 Max IOPS from Newegg, then came and saw this thread.

I am a little confused. Is Vertex 3 affected or not?

I was wondering why g.skill hadn't released a sandforce 2 drive yet, and now I know why! Jeez, I'm glad that I kept my original sandforce.

I just picked up a ssd from microcenter. Is it safe from all of this? It says it too has a sandforce controller on microcenter's site.

I hope I have the receipt just in case.

Another case of "lets take the new stuff out without proper quality control and make some quick big $$$".

Intel got the shaft doing that just recently.
Corsair is now taking the shaft with the 120GB new SSDs.
OCZ might follow them after they realize people don't buy the "use older drivers" silly idea.
Nvidia is taking it on the 570 and 590 when saving money on the VRMs.

When will they freakin learn that cutting corners = blowing your own foot off

Oh my yes it is. The Vertex 3 and Agility 3 are the two SF-2200 drives in the current kerfluffle at the OCZ forums.

OCZ will lie to you and claim it's not. It's a beastly fast SSD but too bad the reliability is shot. Might as well settle for a Corsair GT which isn't affected by this.

Intel had problems with their G1 for what it's worth.

so it seems. that its the drivers according the ocz site. use the microsoft ones instead. seems to eliminate the problem with the ocz 3 series anyway
