    Youre the only one who has said "BSOD screens." So, what is your point, it is.

    If you look in the article all it said was "BSOD errors" which is still.. eh, whatever.. I'll let it slide.

    And all the people that dissed OCZ over Crucial just swallowed their foot.
  6. The original Force series was a disaster too. Corsair is bad about rushing the first launch of a new SSD series. In the case of the original Force drives, it was pre-release firmware.

    Back when the Force series first launched, I got a 60GB Force for my Precision 390 at work.

Soft resets didn't do anything, you had to fully power off the machine and turn it back on the the drive to start up again. This happened daily for me and hundreds of others daily until a new firmware was released after about 3 or 4 months. Then the BSOD's stopped altogether after flashing the new firmware.
