I haven't had the best of luck with SSD. I was having some issues with another ssd drive so I reinstalled WIN7 on this OCZ SSD i have. Everything has been great. Fast load, installs, etc... for about 1 month... now all of a sudden I get a power outage at my house and the drive won't boot or show in my drive list or in the BIOS settings.

Do power outages fry these things randomly? I tried switching power and sata ports, but nothing is showing.

Any thoughts?

Still looking into it. I have a call into the tech folks. We'll see. This is my second SSD drive failure. One from Crucial, and one from OCZ. I think I am going back to spinning HD's lol.
