    How long was the SSD in usage? Just wonder and wait when the first SSDs fail on my installations...

    thanks,

    Sounds familiar ;-) I also had a OCZ Vertex 2 in use which died almost exactly one year after buying (same as above, completely dead, all data los). Got a replacement form OCZ (Vertex 2E this time) which exactly worked another year after the replacement. Again all data lost and the SSD was no longer usable. Be sure to make regular backups when using OCZ SSDs.

    i bought the original vertex 2e when they first came out 3 years ago and it failed just after a year of use and its replacement is the one which has just died, and as far as im concerned unless they have dramatically changed i will not be buying another!

    Vertex 2 range is flawed, ocz have a terrible name as a result - lookup vertex 2 on amazon to see virtually every review is bad

    Modern drives are ok, vertex 4 onwards I believe

    I switched from ocz to Samsung drives
    830 and my other system 840 pro
