I grabbed a couple 256ers and made some use of FC3. Decent game, meant for single player. I have a 256GB Samsung Pro that is a good drive, but the Vector outperforms it. I have owned 4 Vertex, a Vertex 2, Vertex LE, 2 Vertex 3 Max IOPS, 4 Vertex 4 drives, 2 Vector and a Revodrive. Only one time did I experience a drive failure and it was the Vertex 2 and died a year after I got it. I sent for a replacement and received it 6 days later. The service at OCZ was wonderful.
On the other hand, I have had 3 Samsung drives - 2 830 and 1 840. My 830 failed 2 months after installation and I had to RMA. This is where the difference was - it took 5 weeks to get my Samsung replacement and the support was corporate who knows what is happening style.
I don't mind failures, electronics fail. I keep my systems overclocked and I know problems can arise from it. The difference is OCZ supports you with USA-based support that is competent.
