    wouldn't be the first time, that's the worst thing of all. so it's not just conspiracy.com, but based on facts, actually. which imho is scary.

    I still see all of the reviews, be sure to clear any filter options.

    Worst case, disable javascript on the whole page and see if anything changes.

    Some of the negative reviews are by people that complain about the random speeds in benchmarks, not very interesting in my opinion.

    I'm more interested in the overall amount of failures. Did you count that too?

    Thanks for your work.

    Edit:
    Intel 510 120GB 5 failures in 55 reviews = 9% failures.
    Vertex 3 120GB 4 failures in 51 reviews = 8% failures.

    I think 50 reviews is a good number to start counting failures. Who will count the 240GB Vertex 3 and Intel 510?

    Yeah you are right. Many of the bad reviews of the 120GB are from people whining about the speeds. There are 5 failures with Vertex 3 120GB though.

    The intel 510 120 GB have 3 failures, not 4. The Macbook compability have nothing to do with with the drive itself. Atleast it is not a failure. And there is another one of those 3 complaining about that it does not work on Macbook. Which means that that it could have only 2 failures.

    Vertex 3 120GB
    10% failures

    Intel 510 120GB
    5% failures (3) 4% failures (2)

    I recounted, 5 failures with the Vertex 3 is correct.

    But wait a minute... an OCZ drive not working in a Lenovo is a failure and an Intel drive not working in a Macbook is not a failure? :)

    As defined in the first post, a drive not working is a failure. We didn't make exceptions for Macbooks then, I wouldn't start making them now. Intel is responsible for making the SSDs and the chipsets in the Macbooks. When it doesn't work they deserve negative rep for it.

    So both Vertex 3 and Intel 510 have 5 failures so far.

    incompatability is a failure unless Mac can only take very specific SSD/HDD.

    Let me quote to you and see if you can see the difference
    Vertex 3 review:
    "I installed the Vertex 3 in a brand new Thinkpad T520. It would often freeze for 30-60 seconds at a time. It makes the drive unusable. All the drivers are up to date."

    Intel 510 review:
    "Currently it doesn't seem to be supported by OSX, which pretty much limits my MacBook to a paper weight for now."
    You see the difference?

    And no, the Intel 510 have 3 or 4 failures. 3 if a we should count failure as something that is BSODs, freezes, dead, something that is wrong with the components on the drive. Do you see any other reviews there that complain about it not working on a non Apple device? No? And because the chipset does not work with Intel 510 doesn`t mean that the SSD have failed. But since you have counted incompability as failure before fair enough.
