This is mostly BS ^
The reason why OCZ has highest return rates is simple; it's because you can set up RMA online without any questions and they upgrade you to higher model.
Example: I recently RMA two vertex 2 sata 2 60 GB SSDs and got back two vertex 3's
Once this gets around people are "Upgrading" their not defective SSDs by exploiting the easy RMA process at OCZ and technically by doing this they are raising the mfg return rates. It's a shame such a consumer friendly business practice actually hurts the company so much in do many different ways.
That's why you see so many refurb OCZ products but hardly any returns of other guys. They push back out the returns remfg as refurbs at big discounts ($32 newegg). I bought one for a cache drive and it's been rocking hard for 6 months. They turn 60gb into 50gb ... (Same NAND inside but defect chips deactivated and replaced. )
The returns on other mfg often require you to validate it actually defective and weed out half the user error problems versus actual defects.
No hate on Samsung or Plextor those are great SSDs too. Just I've owned enough OCZ SSDs and also others to know that any of them bricking out is not to be expected as ordinary. Sometimes people make it seem like if you buy a certain SSD you are guaranteed it would fail horribly. Certainly not the case.
I'm still upset. But I see the big picture. I'd still buy SSD based on value on performance. If Samsung was cheaper and as good I'd say get that. But I would not pay more. Plus technically Samsung uses crappier NAND inside on the 840 so you really need to go to the "PRO" in order to go head to head apples to apples. I'd prefer the PRO at the same price but often it's not the same price which is why the others sell well.
In my case I'm not sure what happened. I was in process of uninstalling mb3 server and it got hung up. Crashed. SSD gone. Odd to me.
