You're right. The company's entire product line is horrible, because of the one experience you had.
Except for the time where I owned OCZ Gold and it was perfectly fine.
I honestly think all the different lines of memory are gimmicks. I have mix-matched RAM, 6GB Nanya, 2GB Hyper-something, rated for 1333MHz, overclocked to 1600MHz, fully stable and compatible with my board. The timings aren't even the same.
