[OCZ/Anand]SandForce Identifies Firmware Bug Causing BSOD Issue - Page 9

Browsing through newegg reviews, most of the other SF2281 drives are 4-5 stars without many reports of incidents while the OCZ's are full of horror stories.
OCZ outsells all the other guys though as well.

Look at it like this though. All the people who have the other drives describe the problem exactly as the OCZ customer's do. Everything freezes, you can move the mouse only for 30-60 second then bang, bsod. Upon restart, the drive is not seen in bios. The computer has to be shut off then restarted to get the drive to unlock.

OCZ supposedly has the highest hardware ssd failure fate though.

I haven't been using my computer a lot the last couple days but this fix seems to have done the trick or at least it is a lot more stable than v2.13.

My Kingston SSDnow V100 experienced the exact same issues for 8 months until I decided to RMA it. But, it uses a Toshiba JMF618 controller designed by JMicron.


I'm excited because Fedex will be dropping off a new one tomorrow. P.S. Kingston offered to RMA it no hassle, pay for shipping both ways, and shipped out a new one the morning after receiving my defect drive. Very quick, and truly the best RMA experience I've ever had.

Oh, so how long did it take for the new firmware release?

People are still considering purchasing a ssd from OCZ??

The firmware is sandforce's problem not OCZ.

So yes they are considering it because assuming SF actually fixed THEIR problem OCZ isn't really at fault.
