AFAIK the issues are on ALL vertex3 drives.
Just check the support forums.
There's complaints about BSOD and stuttering all over the place on all the sandforce 2xxx forums.
The only drives that are doing really well are the intel 320 and the samsung 470.
510 has a few complaints (but it's not many at all), and the M4 has a few complaints (however they're resolved with an update and 1 registry change).
After reading the various forums for all different sorts of sandforce 2xxx drives, I cancelled my newegg order. I'm gonna wait till the issues are figured out and there are some new firmware versions.
I did keep the M4 512, and it's been doing fine so far.
