I purchased an OCZ Agility drive about a year ago and it failed in a month of very light use in a Thinkpad. I couldn't believe it, just wasn't detected in BIOS one day. Boggles the mind how this happens.
I've had/used/recommended Intel/Samsung/Crucial drives and have never seen one fail. My first SSD, a Kingston I purchased back in 2009 that lacks just about every feature imaginable (even TRIM) is still running solid in an old XP machine I've since sold to a friend and is still performing well for them.
I've heard nothing but failure stories from OCZ SSD's. Literally every person I know that purchased one, and even those who had them last a "long time" (a year) and thought they were in the clear, have eventually had them fail.
Just stay the hell away from OCZ. No matter what controller and model you end up with, it's almost guaranteed to eventually fail, and that's the scary part. At least with hard drives you generally get an indication of failure.

mine works fine normally. sometimes the BIOS doesn't recognize it when I reboot, but I just whack it a few times and everything is OK. I am not kidding.

I think you'll find that what you've described is the opposite of "works fine" :)
