The OCZ Vertex Limited Edition (LE) was the first
generation SandForce SSD to hit the market. At the time of release the LE was
plagued with one issue after another. Many drives were shipped to customers
with the same on drive serial number which caused issues for RAID arrays.
Drives were dropping dead left and right according to forum posts all over the
place, too. Even calling the LE an official SandForce was a bit of a stretch
since the drives shipped with a OCZ logo rather than the SF-1222 that in the
last three months we have become accustomed to seeing on consumer SandForce drives.
OCZ had a head start on their competition but some users walked away from the
early adapter experience feeling a disappointed. @ TweakTown
