    In my opinion it would be worse than useless. Your introduction included:

    This study would not find that. Furthermore, the results would mislead people looking to buy an SSD in the future.

    It annoys me when people throw around misleading or wrong statistics because people end up listening to them, and even repeating them. Remember that French website people kept posting which talked about reliability rates? That annoyed me, and I don't want this to turn into one of those.

    If you don't want to to deal with the issue, you'll end up with numbers which are outdated and wrong today. If you decide to continue anyway I'll not trouble you again, but I'd appreciate it if it was made clear the exact context of the results whenever they are repeated on this forum such that people are not mislead.

    That's plain wrong. Even if the Vertex 2 has become more reliable in the last 6 months, the numbers are totally right. The numbers are the reported failures over the entire product life of the Vertex 2. Not just the last 6 months.

    If you want to count only the last 6 months please go ahead. But those numbers won't be accurate because those people only had their drive for 6 months.

    6 months was a random time frame. I meant go back as far as you can without stepping over any major revisions to the drives.

    There were no mayor revisions. OCZ has been updating the firmware gradually many times. If you buy a Vertex now from Newegg it can still come with outdated firmware.

    I think these numbers are more accurate when they reflect OCZ (/Sandforce) firmware problems, like they do now.

    All the Vertex 2 drives are still plagued with failures. Lots of bad feedbacks in this month.

    Great work Tsunade_Hime. Thanks for your contribution.

    I'll start counting the Corsair Novas now.

    Edit: Corsair Nova V64 5 failures in 54 reviews

    Corsair Nova V128 4 failures in 27 reviews.

    Overall failure rate 11.1%
