It had something to do with OCZ's aggressive pricing at the time I'm sure. I believe that they were selling them below cost for a while, and during that exact same duration was the entire Sandforce debacle.

Eagerly waiting in anticipation for Samsung's latest SSD release.
OCZ's reliability and performance has has been put to shame by Samsung.

As a current owner of a vertex 3, my upgrade will be a Samsung 850 Pro ?

Toshiba is huge, beyond just SSDs. Why would they cling to the OCZ branding after all it's been through?

I would buy a 500Gb if it's priced around $100.

Afterall, it's gonna die after 1 year so it's a fair tradeoff.

OCZ's vertex 4 and 3 in my rig works nicely, But yes their early Sandforce-based SSDs were a large part of their eventual downfall.

However i still hope they keep on making OCZ SSDs with the Barefoot controller, i think Toshiba went with OCZ brand because OCZ is pretty much associated with SSDs whereas Toshiba is virtually unknown in the SSD arena.

I'm not really impressed with OCZ these days since Toshiba took over. A friend of mine lost some of his modular PSU cords in a flood and sent a ticket to OCZ for replacements and was told it would cost him $60 + shipping for them... What a joke, $15 maybe @$60 he's just going to buy a new PSU and I guarantee it won't be OCZ... OCZ may have had good customer service but was specifically told that OCZ was bought by Toshiba and that's why he would be charged for them. rolleyes.gif

I bought 4 vertex 450s about 4 months ago. One of them died the week they filed bankruptcy. The other three I have had no issues with and the performance is great. One thing I will say for them is they jumped on the RMA and I had a replacement drive (all be it a refurb) with in 8 days. On topic..... They should probably lose the name.
