Recommended Posts

Just came across this site:

http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=it&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=fr&tl=en&u=http://www.hardware.fr/articles/862-7/ssd.html&usg=ALkJrhjgzHNE420IRs48asIZW8xHN9xI9A

It lists the return rates of major SSD vendors (models):

(parts sold between April and October 2011, for returns created before April 2012)

- Crucial 0.82% (against 0.8%)

- Intel 1.73% (against 0.1%)

- Corsair 2.93% (against 2.9%)

- OCZ 7.03% (against 4.2%)

- 15.58% 2 OCZ Vertex Series 240GB SSD

- 13.28% 2 OCZ Vertex Series 160GB SSD

- 11.76% 2 OCZ Vertex Series SSD 80GB

- 9.52% 2 OCZ Vertex Series 120GB SSD

- 8.57% 3 OCZ Vertex Series 120GB

- 7.49% 2 OCZ Vertex Series SSD 60GB

- 6.61% 2 OCZ Vertex Series 3.5 "SSD 120GB

- 6.37% 3 OCZ Vertex Series 240GB

- 6.37% March 60 GB OCZ Agility

- 5.89% 2 OCZ Vertex Series 100GB SSD

(and:

(brand new drives)

13.46% Series 128 GB OCZ Petrol

5.95% 2 OCZ Vertex Series 3.5 "120 GB

5.85% Octane Series OCZ 128GB SATA II

4.57% 2 OCZ Vertex Series 120GB SSD

3.57% Octane Series OCZ 64GB SATA II)

The conclusion is obvious: Avoid OCZ like the plague.

This data comes up from time to time...I don't put much value in it, but I suppose it's interesting in some ways. We've talked to vendors about the caching SSDs, they have a high return rate because people don't install them correctly.
