was it the 310s or the 510s?? something that they only read 8mb of space after waking up from hybernation. idk correct me here guys lol
but OCZ denying that it was their drives amd blaming it on the users is why i will probably never buy am OCZ drive.
It was the Intel 320 series SSD's that suffered from the 8MB bug if the system was not powered down correctly or you lost power. Most of the problems was with ppl that had them installed in Notebooks or using them as external drives. It took Intel over a month to put out a fix for it and there's a small amount of ppl saying that the new FW did not work. You could secure erase the drive to get the capacity back. My 320 series has been knock on wood for the last 6 months.
All I can suggest for the folks who have M4's (as with any storage device) to really take a look at your backup methods. After I found out about the 320 series issues, I discovered that my Backup methods were very poor and since I use my PC for work and gaming second, it would cost me a lot of time/money if something ever did go wrong. Now worse case is if something every did go wrong, i would only loose a few minutes worth of work.
Another thing, I follow Extreme Systems SSD endurance testing I was wondering how many hours that B.A.T had on his M4 before it died. It had less then 2500 hours on but it died from data retention because it was powered off for over a week.
