    I have a 2011 MBP with a 50GB Vertex 2 (Applications/Boot) and the stock 320GB Drive (Optibayed, also has boot files just incase)

    Went to class today, it was booting from the Vertex 2 fine, got home, opened it from sleep, everything was freezing up. Restarted, bam, it boots from the stock hard drive and Finder/Disk utility no longer see the SSD.

    Restart a couple more times, try holding down option to select drives and nothing, reset PRAM and still nothing.

    Any other suggestions/a diagnosis?

    Should have gotten an OWC drive or a Toshiba/Apple (the stock drive Apple uses)...those are the only ones I trust...

    I have heard horror stories of the Vertex drives...

    Hey, just about 2 months old. Fortunately, I opened my Macbook up and found somehow the SSD had detached itself from the SATA connector.

    It was probably from sudden movement, throwing my bag around and such.

    Yeah I've heard a lot of stories about OCZ drives also, even though my drive is fine, I wouldn't have been surprised if it had failed based on reviews on newegg. Next time, I'll probably get a brand like Toshiba/Apple/Intel, just wanted a cost effective SSD to see what it was really like.
