methuselah

Toshiba historically has made pretty unreliable hard drives. I don't know that I would buy an SSD made by them unless they are leaving all OCZ manufacturing ops in place.
Of course, before OCZ re-tooled they also had unreliable SSD drives.

Maybe I'll just stick w/ other brands...

So what's happening to PC Power and Cooling? I've used their power supplies for years and really don't trust any other brand.

Seasonic is pretty good. They never let me down.

PCP&C is the only brand i've ever trusted as far as psu. i'd hate to see it disappear.

That's a good question. On another note, I'm assuming they'll still be using the Indilinx controllers? Sandforce screwed me too many times to be coincidence at this point.

The "Indilinx" branding is what drove me to OCZ in the first place. Runner up was the lack of a massive performance drop when dealing with incompressible data, the Achilles' Heel of SandForce.

I've got several OCZ ssds humming along, some for almost 3 years now. So many rag on OCZ for making drives that went but companies that made drives that were unusable out of the box, Corsair and now Kingston, get a pass. Why is that?

I'm in the same boat. Already lost 3 drives because of malfunctioning Sandforce controllers.
