5 out of 5 eggs10,000+ Online hours and still in perfect health!

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I've owned this drive for 18 months, and it has a reported online time of 417 days, and it still reports the same "Remaining Life" value it showed me when I first unboxed it, with no other indications of failure. Considering I haven't been treating it too well (swap files, etc), I'm very impressed!

Cons: Drive was $200 when I bought it, don't know what has happened to the price since then.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this to anyone at this price, but certainly was a great product for its time!

Pros: One year old on Jan 2013. Still works great. It is fast.

Cons: I paid $219 in January 2013. It is March 2014 and the price is more than double. I do not know why.

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

5 out of 5 eggsFaster than lightning

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This thing is fast! Owned it for over a year now and it is still as fast as day one. I run my OS and some games off this hard drive. When I hit the power button to boot up my computer it takes less than 10 seconds to do so. Same with booting up games. The next SSD I buy will definitely be made by OCZ.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Wish I bought two!

5 out of 5 eggsLove them

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I have two of these in a raid 0 and they run great. No problems yet. I put my OS and programs on them, thats it.

Cons: Wish the price on larger models would come down,

Other Thoughts: I don't keep data on these, only the OS and programs. I know SSDs tend to have largely limited life compared to spinning drives so I keep my data on regular Hard Drives.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This SSD is very fast and so far has been very reliable after using this for almost 13 months.

Running this on Windows 7, it gets 7.6 rating.This is running on

Cons: Received BSOD (once) --- this occurred during the first week of usage after cloning my OS from my 1TB (hybrid) SSHD drive.

Other Thoughts: The boot time is quick but only provided about 1-2 improvement than my 1TB hybrid SSHD which came with my laptop.

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast
Reliable
Makes my old i7 laptop scream like a bat out of hell - only wish I had bought a second one for my Desktop as these the current price of them is WAY TOO MUCH!

Cons: none that I can see

Other Thoughts: If you get slow performance you will likely have to load the the utility they make to flip the settings on the drive and update the firmware. I have

5 out of 5 eggsWin7 Performance lacks

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works as advertised -- boot times are quick.
Small and silent.

Cons: On my system, an i7-2700K, GTX670, 1333DDR3, all the components rate 7.7 or 7.9 except this 256GB SSD, which, as a primary drive, rates 7.2. (???)

So, a system which should rate higher rates 7.2.

Still, boot times are quick.
