So did the Crucial Ballistix. Those things we're dying like flies for me.
I love my Agility. The Vertex is a bit faster, but the load times on any SSD are insane. I was about 1/2 second from pulling the trigger on the RevoDrive, that thing looks insane by the numbers, but $80 is $80.
ahaha, I bought a 120 Gig G.skill phoenix SSD(was 190$ for black friday!)..
Works like a doll, I load everything in 2 seconds.... I do however have a complaint, Google chrome opens TOOO fast for my liking, thinking of re-installing on meh storage drive... lol
As a previous owner of a OCZ 8500 GT (handed down, still works 4 years and counting), current owner of the 9600 GT for 1 year and a 1/2, and previous owner of OCZ memory that still works as my backup RAM for 5 years, I say this: NEVER shop based on ONE experience you had.
And of course not to say I'm brand loyal. I've been around computers since age 11, owned Corsair, Crucial, and some company I've never heard of's memory, all worked. Gotten graphics cards by ATI and NVIDIA, CPU's from Intel and AMD, motherboards from Gigabyte and Biostar, well you get the picture. Brand in my eyes is irrelevant. Its whatever is good at the time.
On topic - Also have a preference for Ripjaw's, but not knocking Gskil either, too many are sold to be indicitive of a proplem with them.
Off topic - I too bought the Gskill Pheonix Pro 120 gig SSD, it replaced my 80 Gig Intel G2 SSD. My comment deals with running a bench mark as some have pointed out NOT to run a benchmark. I agree you do not want to run repeatedly, But I would always run one after initial Install as it will point out a problem with installation/driver issues. I was pleased with mine, but when I ran a Benchmark (AS SSD) I discovered my performance to be low (Also windows WEI was @ 7.3, much lower than norm of 7.8). Re-installed windows and everyting is fine. - BUT with out verifing performance I would never known.
