Thanks for the article Hilbert. The SandForce 2281 based drives are pretty darn reliable now and this is a nice middle of the road offering. I have to pose one question... why the heck is HD Tune used in SSD reviews? HD Tune just recently added SSD to its "HD Tune Pro is a hard disk utility with many functions" description. It really is a lousy utility for SSD.

I'm just curious... is it just that OCZ has notoriously bad quality, or do all SSD's have a relatively high failure rate? I see on newegg (of course most reviewers are probably idiots) that the OCZ drives are generally rated pretty poorly compared to other manufacturers.

I find my SSD much more reliable than HDDs in similar usage.

I have mostly Crucial M4 SSDs ( 7 in total ), one 64GB Version working under SQL Database load, after 1 years HDDs started to generate read errors.
There is NON on SSD and performance i superb.

Huh, interesting. Thanks for your response by the way. I figured something looked a little fishy.
