    We very recently had 30 PCs with OCZ Petrol SSDs in, over 20 failed within the first two weeks! We had all replaced by the manufacturer (Novatech) with Adata ones, and so far no failures at all.

    They won't go out of business - they still have a large share of the market. Its more likely they'll get bought out by a traditional HDD manufacturer when they finally realise their number is up.

    If its been working for more than a month or so it will be fine. All our failures dies within a couple of weeks - that was well over a year ago and we've not had a single failure since

    I fitted a new ICT suite with 16x OCZ Agility 3's this summer... yet to see a failure, hopefully it stays that way!
