10 months old... So what?


OCZ had a very bad track in terms of quality so it's more than just a bad batch.

So my first SSD was an Agility (which I don't see the return rate for) but the replacement Vertex which was DOA had a 8%+ return rate.

Winchester drive, eh? What have you been doing - raiding the IBM museum? Seriously, I think this particular terminology means nothing to most users nowadays and I think the technology is dead as well.

But, the memories are fun

More to the point, I bought a Kingston SSD over the holidays (120GB for $70) and it comes with a 3 year warranty - much greater than most HD's I've ever bought.

The first computer I worked on is probably in that museum.

It's current technology. With Winchester drives, the heads fly on a thin layer of air and do not use any mechanism to lift the heads from the disk surface. They're allowed to land on the surface when the drive stops. It's the way disk drives have been built for years and continue to be built.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...
