As much as WD and Seagate were (and are) the big players in the HDD market, Samsung made a very good drive in the last couple of generations prior to the Seagate purchase. I own F3 and F4 drives, and both actually have better transfer speeds than my Caviar Black drives. The Samsung drives also had fantastic longevity and reliability reports. That, of course, all ended when Seagate bought them....with Samsung drives now getting all of the same complaints as Seagate branded drives.
Since they ruined Samsung, they might as well ruin OCZ while they are at it (you know they will). Fortunately there is Patriot, Corsair, Mushkin, Crucial, Samsung (!) and those new drives from Plextor to fall back on. So, there will still be significant choices in the SSD market which is not cornered by two players.
