Yep.

I don't sell their products in my shop because of that kind on nonsense. However I do see their ram in customers machines from time to time. I can't think of a single set of OCZ ram that tested as good in Prime95 and Memtest86 in the last 3-4 years. EVERY pair that I've seen has one defective stick and the machines that junk is in periodically bluescreen because of it. I don't even RMA the junk anymore I just throw it out and sell the people Kingston ram and call it a day.

Only OCZ product I've ever used is their power supplies. That was several years ago now and I had a very good impression. I've used multiple OCZ power supplies and they all have been very solid units. That was probably 3 years ago though.

Shame. Seemed like they really had potential. Maybe they'll turn around for the better.

I've had 2 OCZ products. Both died within half a year. Haven't bought their products since.

Intel is the safest bet so far in SSD.
Samsung is close 2nd (very reliable too).

Both are more expensive than the basic sandforce designs.

I bought the intel 520 120GB on the 11th of February and exchanged it after 1 month (drive was unused) for the 240 because its price fell ~130 Euro. Not a single problem these 2 months of use, plus the 520 feels considerably faster than the XM25, especially on installing/writing data. I'll probably be buying Intel SSD's for my whole life
