Hmm, just got my m4 128GB in the mail this morning, waiting on my RAM to come in to start the install. Still, assuming it is 5200 hours, Crucial should have plenty of time to figure out the issue and get it fixed before it becomes my problem.

Not everybody, but most people who bash OCZ specifically is because of how long it took OCZ to even admit there was a problem, let alone getting around to fixing it. Right now the drives are good, but if there is another problem down the road, people don't want to risk having a long turn around without getting things fixed. In the thread linked by the OP Crucial has already made a response, acknowledged there was a problem, and is setting up RMA's and planning on researching the problem. To me that is a good sign. Technology fails, its a fact of life. I don't hate a specific company just because they had a bug or a failure, its all about how they handle the bugs when they come up.
