Yup very high failure rate. bought a batch for the office to act as boot drives. near 100% failure rate within 6 months.if i recall, some OCZ ssd's had some crazy 50% failure rate, uncertain if that pertains to the Vertex 2 or not but I remember that. Being old that is.
Edit: That price is ridiculous though as you can buy new 120-250GB from more reputable brands for only $30ish
