Nice to see a company claim full responsibility, do a recall, and get the info out quickly. Kudos to them.

It seems like its best to wait abit before buying any new gen ssds.

Past a cache drive, I really can't see using an SSD in my gaming rig. I have a pair of built-in Toshibas in my Vaio Z and they cause me endless headaches.

Aside from faster loading times, there isn't that much of a performance benefit to having a dedicated SSD in games.

The only time an SSD would make a significant difference is that if you had such an extremely low amount of RAM that the game was constantly dumping and reloading assets.

And at that point (which would have to be an absolutely stupid low amount of ram), if you bought an SSD over more RAM, well you're doing it wrong.

Just curious, what makes you think they are worse? OCZ has had it's fair share of problems and the only difference is they have not openly admitted there was fault. In my opinion i'd much rather frequent a company that makes their mistakes visible and is willing to fix them and help the enthusiast market that supports them.

I actually stopped buying any OCZ products a couple years ago for that exact reason.
