    I can understand where you are coming from, but they are no longer the same company they were when people were getting 'burned'.

    I recently bought a OCZ arc100 240Gb. I was aware of previous issues however I don't believe its the same company now that Toshiba own them. Been pretty impressed so far and I saved £15 over the equivalent crucial (£65 vs £80).

    edit: Also the warranty is fantastic - They will replace the drive before you even send it in. Seriously helps improve confidence.

    I wouldn't worry about "the brand".
    I had the original Vector (before they got into bed with Toshy) and they replaced my SSD really quickly without any hassle and I haven't had any issues since. Now they've got decent NAND and financial support from Tosh, it should be a win-win for everyone? On this alone, I would recommend OCZ/Tosh.

    Re: Reviews - OCZ Storage Solutions Vector 180 480GB SSD

    I just cannot bring myself to buy anything with OCZ written on it.....

    I know Toshiba own them now and I've never owned an OCZ SSD (have owned DDR/DDR2 RAM and a lot of it did die) but the people I know who purchased OCZ drives (against my better judgement!) all regretted it.

    I would just end up kicking myself if I bought one and it caused me issues.....and to top it off the figures all look the same as all the other drives available and the prices are roughly equal as well. Very little incentive to go out on a limb.

    Re: Reviews - OCZ Storage Solutions Vector 180 480GB SSD

    Add me to the list of people who will no longer have anything to do with OCZ. I put one of their SSDs in a new build for my dad, and it died when he put the computer to sleep. It may be more Sandforce's fault than OCZs, but I'd have hoped they'd put some kind of warning in the box regarding this issue.

    "The fastest-ever consumer drive from the storage specialists."

    So they'll never make a faster one ?
