    I'd like to know the reliability rates for every current SSD. We've already done this quick and dirty but now I'd like to do it properly. I invite you all to help.

    Here's my suggestion:
    -first post which product you're going to count before you count it. This way we prevent doing the work double.
    -when posting the result mention the following:
    1. product name
    2. link to Newegg product page
    3. total number of reviews
    4. number of failures.

    How to count failures.
    In essence a failed product is a product that doesn't work.
    Include:
    • Dead on arrival (product didn't work in the first place)
    • failures (product worked but then failed)
    • unsolvable critical errors (BSOD, not detected, etc.)
    • 'I ordered two, both failed' counts as two failures
    Do not include:
    • speed issues (unless they're extreme speed issues)
    • complaints about firmware update software (update didn't work but drive is working)
    • complaints about 25nm NAND
    • problems at first but then solved it
    • 'my SSD makes noises'
    • SMART reading says errors but the drive may still be working like normal

    SSD reviews being counted at the moment
    OCZ Vertex 3 120GB
    OCZ Vertex 3 240GB

    SSD reviews still to count - who will count them?:
    Corsair Force 120GB
    Crucial C300 128GB CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1CCA
    Crucial C300 128GB CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1
    Crucial C300 256GB CTFDDAC256MAG-1G1CCA
    Crucial C300 256GB CTFDDAC256MAG-1G1

    Intel X25m 160GB SSDSA2MH160G2K5

    (this list will be expanded with other models)

    If you see any current SSDs missing or any other suggestions please post.

    Some things to watch for:
    -not every failure is in the 1 star category. Also look for the other star ratings.
    -let's only count 2.5" drives for now

    Preliminary Results:
    Crucial C300 64GB 7/284 = 2.46%
    Samsung 470 series 3/109 = 2.75%
    Intel X25m (G2) 80GB 27/699 = 3.86%
    OCZ Vertex 2 range 211/1109 = 19.0%


    Newly released products:
    Intel 320 0/29 = 0%
    Intel 510 4/56
    Vertex 3 2/47

    Great :)

    Let me know if you have any doubts about how to count. That way we can make sure everybody counts the same.

    Love to see that though for a potential buyer, would the time relevancy skew the result ? Take the SF as an example, there was quite a number of failure that has already been fixed by latest firmware. So for a new buyer, using the old reported case is not a true picture(and may be a bit unfair to new SF drive with new firmware).

    Yes this is definitely a problem but it's hard to do something about it.

    Edit: for popular products like Vertex 2 60GB and 120GB we could include a rating for the last 6 months.

    I suggest we count 'drive not being detected' as a failure (unless it was solved). Harsh for the manufacturer but reality for the consumer.

    Phil maybe you can update your OP so that you can put a "check mark" next to the ones that have already been counted?

    Or maybe even post the results in the OP itself?

    Good idea. I've put the SSD that still need counting in the list:
    SSD reviews still to count

    The results are mentioned in the OP.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    The OCZ Vertex 2 range has 211 failures in 1109 reviews. A whopping 19.0%.
