I don't get all of these complaints about OCZ warranty service. Even many years ago, OCZ was always awesome. I'd call, get an RMA number and then just drive to their Markham office for a direct, on the spot replacement. Usually I would be given a superior product to the one I was returning.

I hope they don't get purchased by Seagate (a generally crummy company with subpar products).

Crummy products? Their portable drives are some of the best out there and the goflex series are awesome little drives with expansion capabilities.

So please explain "crummy products" because all you can come up with is their firmware debacle.

I agree my buddy bought a goflex external HDD and it is much better than the HP one my parents got me.

IF OCZ is going up for sale....Seagate would be a great fit for us consumers. :)

I agree with AKG here bigtime !!

Only a un-understanding fool of technoligy & technoligy trends would call a merger of seagate/ocz a bad thing ..... IF this occures you can bet Western Digital would be in a harder position in the hard drive/storage market ESPECIALY since there own attemps at SSD's where such a failure!!

And as well Western Digital is not "perfect" as you seem to think they are vs seagate crazyea .... do the research & you'll find quite a few of there products are also "flawed"

Myself i've used both Seagate & WD, even the drive I have now had a firmware patch & never had a problem with it since.

Ummm....did you even read that thread?

They came out with a MUCH cheaper model. Its about HALF the price of the other V4. This is nothing like the 3x vs 2x NAND series where both were orginally within spitting distance of each other price wise.

It was done in order to give customers more options. As in no need to drop down to ONFi 1 NAND, rather you can stay in budget get a kick ass drive and STILL have ONFi 2 NAND. Not many other companies offer that. Its either low end= ONFi 1 mainstream=ONFi 2, high perf=Toggle Mode. NOW they got a Agility 4, Vertex 4 M, Vertex 4 (and hopefully Vertex 4 MI). OCZ loves to blanket the entire market.

To me it sounds to me more like a sales SNAFU. They probably couldnt call it a Vertex 4 "3K" due to Kingston owning the copywrite (or something along those lines)....and some less than savory retailers in Europe are trying to cash in. I also would love to see HARD numbers -done by reviewers not customers w/ an axe to grind - on it being noticeably slower on the low end. Micron 3K ONFi 2 NAND is good kit. Kingston and their HyperX / HyperX 3K are proof of that!

Worse case scenario it needs firmware tweaking. This aint the same as the NAND issue that MOST of the mfg'ers tried to pull on customers and got burned.
