Died completely, without warning 4 months in, wouldn't even recognise the drive in the bios of both the PCs I tried it in.OCZ have an awful RMA policy too. They won't cover the shipping for returns and you have to pay to have it shipped by recorded delivery to the Netherlands, cost me £20. Not to mention, as the drive was impossible for me to wipe, I had to trust OCZ with my data.So yeah, I won't be buying OCZ (or sandforce) again.

Unless you bought from OCZ directly; why didn't you go back to the retailer?
It's their responsibility not the manufacturer's.

force 3 are awful, had one before had to return it because it was faulty, … force 3 are awful, had one before had to return it because it was faulty, agility 3 is better

That was the first version of it. the link I posted, is for the second version which is fine.
Just got this yesterday. Died on me within the hour, and all I was doing was copying a partition onto it!

Completely undetectable by 3 different PCs/laptops in the BIOS or Windows.

Hopefully Ebuyer's RMA policy won't be too harsh as the drive failed so quickly...
Eurgh, mine died last night after only using my laptop twice. Same deal, can't be seen in anything i put it in but it actually stops my laptop getting past POST with it connected. Not looking forward to ebuyer RMA.

Credit where its due, ebuyer picked up at my convenience and promptly shipped a replacement (opted for a corsair as i'm too scared of the ocz ones now).

My RMA went through, just be careful not to mention anything to in depth about partitions from HDDs (I cloned a partition from an HDD and I know exactly what to do to 'fix' alignment etc, but he sounded ready to cancel the RMA until I said that I actually cloned the partition from an SSD )
