I would actually be contacting them now. I can tell you my OCZ Solid SDD, over 2 years, almost 3 years old, still works perfectly and has been used near none stop since we got it. I am not showing any block errors on it.

Retired blocks and bad blocks aren't the same thing.

Many drives ship with a few retired blocks - unless that number starts rising quickly you're looking at normal operation.

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

Thanks guys , know of any software that will test ssd's, their toolbox is kind of hard to figure out, not benchmarking just reliability.
