Technically- The OCZ is a better reliability choice. This is validated by AnandTech and other professional review sites.
While you make dislike OCZ for personal reasons that's cool- but here is some facts:
OCZ has full 5 year Warranty.
OCZ Vertex 4 uses the same Marvel controller that everyone raves about as most reliable (same as Crucial M4 and many other popular SSDS)
OCZ uses the same sources NAND inside as most others
OCZ is faster, higher performance
OCZ is Cheaper
In comparision- The Sandforce controllers have been suspect in certain areas on performance and even with Intel. It seems the TRIM might not work properly because of the Sandforce design.
Sandforce controllers are still a great option and work well. I have over 10 of them.
But I thought I'd provide a more balanced opinion.
Saying you don't like a brand is fine. But assuming others share your same fear and then suggesting someone spend more on much less makes little sense to me.
