Hey folks, I've been seriously thinking about upgrading my boot drive to an OCZ Vector 256 GB. The Crucial M4 128 GB I have now is no speed demon, and it's getting too full for best performance. From all accounts, the Vector series drives are the fastest SSDs available, and reliability is (supposedly) much improved over previous models.
My question is, has anyone on this forum tried a Vector, and if so, how reliable has it proved to be? I'm a little scared of OCZ after my Vertex 4 died 15 days into it's life. I see a few bad user reviews on NewEgg and TigerDirect, but they could be the product of corporate trolls or even just haters.
I guess I'm gonna get one soon, just wanted some input - thanks in advance!

The failure rates on OCZ SSDs not using the sandforce controller seem to be much better. I'm not sure if any numbers have been released for a while though. I have had no problems with my vertex 4, if that counts for anything.
