This product has problems that go well beyond firmware issues. Buy something that doesn't suck from a company that isn't going out of business. Last time I checked OCZ was having problems making cash flow to pay rebates like the one attached to this. The crucial is a much better product for the same price.
If the price is significantly discounted why not? Most refurbs are probably 100% working returns and also items reported as defects but really just the result of an inexperienced user. If you have any data that shows refurbs are much more likely to fail then I would agree with you but absent that I'm not sure there is a basis to hold this opinion.
