RMAing my 13month old OCZ vertex2 which died a couple of days ago. Thinking of ebaying what's returned and upgrading. Are these newer drives any more reliable?

It is Indilinx Everest 2 People say they are supposed to be reliable, but only real life experience over the period of time can prove.

Nobody knows yet since they're new. They *should* be more reliable after the disaster of sandforce, but I'd expect a couple of important firmware updates along the road.

Just ask for a refund, I did. My RMA'd vertex 2 died after two months of being replaced.
