All SandForce based SSDs need to be updated to the latest firmware. Newer ones should be OK but any older than a few months likely have a serious bug that causes data corruption and an eventual disk crash. I got hit with that on a Vertex 2 and it corrupted the O/S, making a restore from an older disk image necessary. That said, the Vertex Plus is Indilinx based so it won't have that particular bug. Indilinx based SSDs have their own issues though.

At 20 I had a good mind. At 40 I had money. At 60 I've lost my mind and my money. Oh, to be 20 again. --Scary
