Year 2011 will soon end, as we know, this year has many SSD are released. Perhaps many of us will buy new SSD next year. Voting is intended to give awards to the most reliable SSD in 2011 based on your opinions.

Forgive me, the basic rules previously quite confusing, so let's simplify the rules. You can be choose based on one of the three following conditions:
1. Choose one most reliable SSD according to your own experience. OR
2. Choose one most reliable SSD based on reviews / testimonies you read and believe. OR
3. Choose one most reliable SSD you want to recommend for purchase.

Hopefully this vote will be a useful reference.

How can any Sandforce 2200 controlled ssd be included in a most reliable poll when it took them 6 months to figure out the bsod bug was their firmware????

I didn't start using the max iops as a Steam only drive for the good of my health. It was because I was tired of wondering when it would bsod again.

SandForce 2281's SSD might not reliably within a few months after its release (BSOD problem), but after many improvements, in the future, it is possible for SandForce to produce stable and reliable firmware.This is similar to the early days when the Crucial C300 was released. Now, as the successor of the C300, Crucial m4 able to make the firmware is quite stable and reliable.

So, let's give equal opportunity for all of the SSD.

You might as well call the title, "which ssd did you purchase?"

because that's what it is. people are going to vote for what they bought.

Uhhh no, sorry.

I had a c300 within a month of it's release and a Vertex 3 within a month of it's release.

There is absolutely no comparision of the two in regards to initial problems. Like my m4, the c300 worked right out of the box while the Vertex 3 would bsod at random taking 6 months for Sandforce to catch the biggest issue and resolve it.
