I do know that one of our clients (datacenter) was constantly having
failures with OCZ. They replaced them with Samsungs and had far better
reliability. I don't know if OCZ still has issues, for our own, we use
Samsung and they've been pretty good, but they do seem to fail more than
our spinning drives. However, that makes it sound worse than it is, it's
maybe one or two drive failures a year.

For my own personal use, as I have little money, I use Crucial, but that's
for some towers that just get home use, the FreeBSD one using ZFS, and
they've been fine, but that's been home use. So, for the moment, I would
just echo Valeri and say Samsung is the one that my company and I have seen
to be the longest lasting.
