    $70 AR is absolutely insane... not sure how I feel about paying $90 for my 128GB Samsung 830 last week... $20 for peace of mind I guess.

    Yea, OCZ has gotten some pretty bad reviews on their SSD's. I would stay away from them at the moment.

    Thanks, ordered one.

    Makes me feel sorta down, as I ordered a 90 gig a month ago for the same price.:ohwell:

    Guess it may be because of the encryption problem the prices a dropping.

    I have 4 OCZs, 2 Sandisks and a Kingston. All using the Sandforce controllers and have not had a single problem, so far.

    IMO... one is like another (compared with the same internals) and brand only makes a difference in personal choice.
    OCZ is good and they keep their firmware up.
    I don't know about their Vertex 4 with the new Indilinx controller; however, I intend to try one.

    As long as you run their newest BIOS it takes care of all the BSOD problems it experienced when the drive tried to go to a 0V state.
