Why do you want it to be larger? It's not like 512 GB drives are selling like hotcakes.

Why would you WANT the same thing in a larger package? it wont make it any faster or any cheaper... and these days most SSD drives come with a free 2.5 to 3.5 bracket adapter to mount in Desktop PC's. If yours didn't, the bracket is a simple piece of metal that costs less then 2 dollars in most cases.

you can fit 1TB or more of flash inside of a 2.5" enclosure, so why would you want something bigger? a larger drive just obstructs airflow.

The OCZ Colossus 3.5" SSD and the Vertex 3 3.5" SSD has been out for ages. So don't know what you people are talking about.

Lets hope they last longer than the Petrols.

I have had every single Petrol Drive I have used fail within 2 months. Every single one! Thats 15 petrols, in 2 months.

I have tried to get an answer from OCZ.. Nothing!

Are these going to be more reliable that OCZ's past offerings?

Don't get me wrong, OCZ offered the best performance/price ratio for people who knew what they were doing, but I would never consider putting an OCZ (or any Sandforce) SSD in a computer I built for friends and family. The PITA of constantly going over to fix it just isn't worth it.

Why did you keep going back 15 times?? I think 2 failures in a row would have convinced me not to use that drive again.

Why? They still serve as an entry point for someone who doesn't have a lot of cash to spend but wants faster OS boot. Till SSD prices go near 0.2-0.3 dollars/GB, the 64GB models make sense.

He probably bought all 15 in a single batch.

My main workstation has been running for the past two years with 2 OCZ Vertex 2 Max IOPS. My sister's computer has one too that's almost two years old. No problems so far. I've had a Vertex 3 in my laptop for the last year. None of them have failed on me so far. Maybe I'm just lucky...
