  3. Are OCZ ssd's any good?

I bought one and had a few issues that firefox keeps not closing right so have to close process or some things installing takes ages(could that be a firmware thing?) and sometimes playing games from the 3tb regular hard drive lags when my 5 year old one had no issues

Anyway I have heard many bad reviews of failed drives so wondered if they are any good

Better now than they were during SSD infancy for sure. I have owned 6 SSD's, 3 being OCZ and they all work fine still aside from my intel 330 120GB (which was just unlucky as they are very reliable statistically).

I bought a vertex 4 late last year. I love it, got it for a great price and have had no issues at all.

I use an OCZ Hybrid drive, after the second and third patch it became very stable.

Have you ever updated the firmware? Also when you first setup windows was it a clean install or did you clone your OS to the drive?

This could easily just be an instability issue with the software, when did you install Windows on the computer?

It was a clean install, I was running it since 1.0 driver/firmware. At times I would randomly get a BSOD that would then auto restart, it was after downloading the latest firmware/driver updates for the Dataplex (caching) software that it stopped bsod'ing.

Since then I haven't experienced a single bsod or error related to the dataplex software.

It is REALLY fast, SSD speeds, and it allows me to have 1TB of space with the speed of an SSD.

Clean install for me but no updated firmware, seems fast now but after a few days seems to slow down and also the file size goes up a little each time i.e it goes between 25.5 to 28 and back and forth not sure if this is a issue with it or just windows itself

Thats the exact drive I had, noticed it had firmware 2.22 so updated it to 2.25

Any ideas if the updates are any good from that
