These numbers were used by Intel during release of the 520 drive. They are not the source of the numbers either.
Source can be found here.

Which says basically nothing given the enormous amount of Sandforce-controlled OCZ drives included in those results.If you know OCZ's Sandforce drives have high defect rates,why would you judge a different product with those results?I am not pro OCZ,I could care less actually.More relevant would be defect rates on OCZ-Indillinx controlled drives,then you can compare.

Perhaps you should have followed the link and actually read the article.

It doesn't include any 3 series drives.

- 9.14% OCZ Vertex 2 240 GB
- 8.61% OCZ Agility 2 120 GB
- 7.27% OCZ Agility 2 40 GB
- 6.20% OCZ Agility 2 60 GB
- 5.83% Corsair Force 80 GB
- 5.31% OCZ Agility 2 90 GB
- 5.31% OCZ Vertex 2 100 GB
- 5.04% OCZ Agility 2 3.5" 120 GB

Yeah, I'm sure it's completely irrelevant to give someone considering an OCZ ssd failure rates for their last generation of drives before Sandforce 2281 was even released. There's more to a ssd that can fail than the controller. Low quality nand and boards fail far more than controllers do simply because the ssd builder supplies everything but the controller.

To the OP. Once again I apologize for the thread getting off track. For some reason, certain people think it's more important to make me look wrong as opposed to helping you.

I was looking for a cheaper alternative to a Crucial m4. Already a m4 128 Gb. in my desktop rig, but my laptop could use some speed smile.gif The Petrol has a good price, but I'm weary of OCZ...

I'd have to agree with mcg75 on this. I bought an OCZ 120GB SSD through Dabs.com about six months ago, as a prelude to forking out on a Revodrive. So glad I didnt buy the Revo now as OCZ support and information is totally non existant. Six months on and I still dont know how to set it up for AHCI. When I pay for something new I expect to see good back up and info on the manufacturers website. I try not to make the same mistakes twice so I wont be buying from either Dabs or OCZ again. For anyone looking for a good deal on SSD's I'd advise to hang on for 2 or 3 moths as the price is starting to drop rapidly. If your desperate for one now the Corsair Force 3 (Sata III 6GB/s) looks very good value as Ive heard of them going for as little as £110.00 recently.
