You had an OCZ Vertex 2 that nearly lasted two years ? We bought 10 at work and they all died in under a year, we've had them just over 2 years now and most of them have been replaced 3 times (they're only used for temp storage, so it doesn't matter when they fail otherwise we would be using better drives).

Experienced the same symptoms with my Vertex 3 a few months back. A secure wipe using the OCZ Bootable Linux Tools was enough to bring the drive back to full working order, but of course I lost everything. It took a few evenings to rebuild and re-install everything that I needed but eventually I was back up and running. In my case I didn't loose too much as the drive was solely hosting the OS and programs. Data is stored on a regular HDD.

Well that's a deal and a half.
Tech support said they will replace my Vertex 2 with a Vertex 3. Not bad but I hope the Vertex 3 won't die as easily like the Vertex 2 did.

So it takes 1 week to replace the SSD and another week to ship it to my place (Taiwan -> California) so a total of 2 weeks

OCZ's headquarters are in Californa. I mailed mine there and got it back in 3 days. Why did they tell you to send it to Taiwan?
