Return the Vertex 2?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just bought the Vertex 2. With the issues of the new 25nm ones I'm tempted to return it. If I do. The X-25 from Intel looks ok, maybe the C300. Perhaps I'll stick to mechanical drives as they are less of a nuisance it seems.

Thoughts?

Sounds good, I'll just return it to newegg and take the hit on the restocking fee.

Mechanical drives are less of a nuisance.

That's a first.

Just seems like there is too much tweaking/optimization/etc to go through at first, too much room for error.

I take you haven't used a ssd before and this is your first one?

I would never go back to mechanical drives.
Dont know what tweaking you are talking about but an unoptimized ssd would leave a mechanical drive in the dust.
