I swear, it's like AMD's GPU drivers, people just can't get over the fact that this stuff has gotten better and isn't crap anymore.

First off AMDs drivers aren't solid yet and nVidia is taking hits left and right recently. AMDs trend is upwards though in quality and nVidias trend is downwards at this moment.

Secondly, OCZs focus has never been stability. Cutting edge performance, sometimes at the cost of a few weeks/months extra in Q&A stress testing.

OCZ before purchase was usually the first on the market with their high speed drives, thus, they always had teething issues for earlier adopters. Firmware upgrades usually means wiping your OS boot drive too. Super annoying and necessary.

So if you waited to the end of the lifecycle of a drive OCZ had usually gotten all the bugs out of their drives by then, but it meant you really lagged behind everyone else, not to mention newer drives in terms of performance got released, just to purchase an almost guaranteed stable OCZ drive.

This marks a big shift in direction for OCZ no doubt at Toshiba's behest.

Only just got a new SSD because of the good deals recently and needed more space.

Older SSDs will live LONGER than newer SSDs (assuming no firmware bugs). wink.gif

Minimum p/e cycles for mainstream MLC NAND started at 10K but have dropped to 5K, 3K, and even 1K. 3D NAND brings it back up to 6K.

I believe the Agility 3 used 25nm NAND so those are rated for 5K.

Vectors were fantastic.
post #17 of 88
I had a vertex 4 and loved it, passed it on to my coworker and he still uses it till this day with zero issue, Currently in love with my two 1TB 840 Evo's , and I plan to get a 1TB 850 Evo.

Haven't checked current pricing with OCZ vs Samsung , but if they are the same price id go for Samsung , if OCZ is cheaper I'd recommend it to people on a budget. I've owned a vertex3, vertex4 and agility3 and never had issues!

Personally tho I'd buy OCZ over Corsair!

I swear, it's like AMD's GPU drivers, people just can't get over the fact that this stuff has gotten better and isn't crap anymore.

Because they had a ton of issues and weren't exactly known for their customer support when those issues occurred. There current SSD's arent anything special either, so why choose them over another well trusted brand? OCZ had the most failures in my experience, to the point where I had gone through 3 drives that all were DOA, 4th one worked. Fortunately I was just the technician building a custom rig and could have them sent back to OCZ and get another out of the warehouse with no issue.


I feel like kitguru should at least open up one of the SSD's and compare the innards to a retail version since they refuse to buy their own. I have no doubt that the drives will last, just that OCZ would be willing to send out retail drives and have the potential for one to fail and be a PR nightmare. This isnt like intel, amd or nvidia where people cant review retail parts because they arent released to the public at the time of the review.

They can always do that post-mortem.

Then again... this really isn't that special. SSDs are solid-state devices. They will last.

If they want a hard test.... do a write stress test and pull the power plug. Repeat. Almost every SSD (even ones with SuperCaps) have failed due to power loss.
Once again...
