OCZ is a very good company..

My PCI-e drive failed http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227520 since this was under warranty I e-mailed OZC for a RMA ticket, they answered me in no time and told me that my SSD was out of production an they will replace it with this one, faster and more storage... http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-velodrive-pci-express-ssd.html

 

I'll buy OCZ again.

Yep, same here, had OCZ Vertex 2 SSD´s fail and RMA (Sandforce problems..) and I got new ones, same mediocre types, but whatever, I use them as caches now, poor things...

 

OCZ have Indilinx controllers now BTW, better?

 

Don´t know..

 

:shok: 1600 bucks?!?!?!?! :o

I had the same top service with their RAM. Sadly, they have stopped doing RAM, but nevertheless, thanks, as I've been planning to get an OCZ SSD but will certainly not pay $1600. Phew!

One Question: Have you noticed any increase in performance? No ? :sad:

 

I was out of town for a few days, sorry for the late reply, performance wise....hummm, have not tried the new SSD yet as it will be shipped to me this week, .....about the old one.....faster loading for sure, no Sata bottleneck as it is a PCI-E drive, FPS wise....no difference, bragging rights...."you betcha"... :yahoo:
