    Actually OCZ has a pretty bad track record with SSD reliability and it doesn't matter if their drives are cheaper because having a boot drive crap itself is huge pain in the ***. That's why the Corsair M4 and Samsung 830 are so highly recommended: they are reliable and are in the sweet spot for price vs. performance.

    I agree after dealing with unreliable Vertex and Vertex 2 drives this is not surprising. I was ready to give up on SSD's thinking they were all flaky till I went to Crucial M4 drive and saw how they are suppose to work. It has worked flawlessly and reliably since day one. I will never go back to OCZ and recommend all my friends to steer clear of them no matter how good they look on paper.
