SSDs - What to avoid?

Recommended Posts

Everywhere I read, people are advising against OCZ.

 

Looks like I will steer clear of them.

 

Cruicial or Intel would be my pick by the looks of things.

I've got a OCZ vertex 3. New firmware fix's any issues that were occurring.

 

I'd go the intel though. I've got 2 intel drives in my server and they are great.

My Intel are old G2's so a little slower but they've been to hell in back with what I've done to them :)

I suppose reliability is better than speed, as regardless of which SSD I get it'll still kick the discs out of my mechanical drives... so to speak. :p

I have had two bad ssd drives,the first one was the crucial c300 256gb and that thing froze all the time,slowely the firmware updates got better and better and reached a point where the drive runs prefect with the last firmware I flashed,no worries at all I use it now for my steam game folder,the other ssd was the vertex 3 which I run my windows on,that thing was really bad,every day I was getting blue screens etc way worst than the crucial ssd,anyway they finally fixed that with the last firmware and the problems are complety fixed,the drive has been running perfect for about 5 months now.
