Not-so-important background info
I'm thinking of getting a 200GB+ SSD to replace the mechanical drives in my main rig (will be keeping those for storage in an older rig or NAS, w/e), because tbh the noise annoys me. I've become slightly obsessed with silence, and getting quieter case is not an option.
By the way, other ideas on how to keep the noise down, like "Put that F3 in an external enclosure and run it through e-SATA", etc. are welcome.
The actual question
So, the cheapest SSD available to me is the OCZ Vertex 2 240GB
, but wherever I look I see that it has quite the bad reputation.
This makes me wonder if this is due to flawed early firmware which has later been fixed, or is this drive still as unreliable as it was?
