3 out of 5 eggsfast, bricked due to firmware

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Fast, small, comes with 3.5"caddy. 5 year warranty. OCZ support seems pretty good.

Cons: If you don't upgrade to firmware version 3.0 it is likely the drive will fully brick without warning. This happened to me after 11 months of use, as I missed the firmware update notice a few months ago.

Other Thoughts: Just submitted RMA request to OCZ. If they screw up the deal I will update this. If all goes smooth I probably won't bother.
Use the flathead screws to mount the drive in the caddy, the rounded head screws to mount the caddy in the tower. The orientation of the items is not obvious and takes a bit of trial and error.

2 out of 5 eggsAmazing at first, now dead/locked

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Extremely fast compared to your run of the mill non-ssd storage.
Price ($124 when I bought it 1/2014)

Cons: High failure rate
Unrecoverable data

Other Thoughts: During a routine Windows 7 Update shutdown process, received a blue-screen-of-death error. Resulted in a panic-locked 2.5" brick. Will not be purchasing OCZ products again since I can't RMA. Replacing with Samsung 250GB 840 Evo like I was told to buy the first time. This a good entry-level SSD, don't misunderstand, but I lost a significant amount of data due to an inability to reset the lock on the drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Marcus,

I am sorry to read of the problem you have experienced following a failed Windows update. While your return window with Newegg may be closed, you can still pursue troubleshooting and a potential RMA with OCZ directly. I would be happy to assist you with some quick troubleshooting and can issue you a RMA per the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty if necessary.

Please contact me using the email address below and I will gladly assist.

1 out of 5 eggsocz, i expected way better

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: nice fast drive, included adapter tray

Cons: first one died in about 3 months. customer service replaced it, but my experience was terrible. took well over a week, even with credit card securing shipment, email only, no phone service, terribly slow res ponces, some ignored when I complained. I expected better. w/d, seagate, etc over the years, always helpful, not ocz. Now the refurbished unit they replaced it with, died in after about 4 months. Still same terrible service.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked great until...

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Device is very fast. I threw my OS on there and, with my BIOS in fast boot, ended up getting to the welcome screen in about fifteen seconds from cold start. Also, it's occasionally on sale, so you might be able to pick it up for a lot cheaper, like I was able to.

Cons: I had my SSD for around nine months when it started throwing telltale signs of a bad HDD, occasionally freezing, random bad sectors, etc etc but I just wrote it off and hoped it would go away. Then, randomly I reset my PC, Disk Check ran and found tons of bad sectors and corrupted files, which it said it "repaired" and on next restart, it was no longer recognized by my computer.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy! I am unsure if this is a product line-wide problem of OCZ's, or if it's just this model, but if this and most every review is true, this drive is absolutely terrible and will die on you unexpectedly and far sooner than it should.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsFast for Months

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Very easy to install, converted from HDD boot drive. Murdered the old boot times.

Cons: Started throwing Disk errors after 3 months, is no longer usable after 6. Looks like most of the con reviews started popping up shortly after I purchased it. :(

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable..DO NOT BUY!!!

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: It is an SSD. Fast when it works.

I really wanted to like this drive. I WAS a huge fan of OCZ.... and then....

Cons: I bought the drive late 2013. It worked well for a few months then died. RMA through OCZ was fast, and they sent out a refurbished SSD to me. Again same thing, died in a few months. Now on RMA number 2. Maybe I have had bad luck with last to SSDs, but 2/2 being RMA'd is enough to get me looking for a new company. I Highly recommend if you are looking for and SSD DO NOT get an OCZ unless you enjoy having an expensive paper weight laying every few months.

Other Thoughts: It worked really well when it was up, but what good is speed if it is unreliable.

1 out of 5 eggsA lot of wasted time and lost data

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: in the beginning SSD was pretty fast, 5 year warranty

Cons: Died.

Other Thoughts: 8 months after buying my SSD died for no apparent reason. I contacted OCZ and used their 5 year warranty to have it replaced. It was a common issues from my research. After at least 2 weeks and back an forth emails with OCZ, they told me they no longer made this specific drive and offered me the new Vector 150 120gb. Needless to say I wasn't happy. It wasn't much but I lost 8 gbs of space. Fast forward to now, Vector 150 drive started getting multiple BSOD and corrupted data. It was a gamble every day turning on my computer. Over the course of 2 weeks more and more windows system files were corrupting to the point I couldn't even do system restores or recovery options. Constant scan disks claimed to have fixed and repaired the hundreds of problems only to have it happen again the next morning. I've even did a complete re-install of windows. that was a no-go, as soon as I got to my first reboot the windows update exe was corrupt and another BSOD. Finally gave up and purchased the new Samsung 850 pro and haven't looked back. First install and everything has been perfect and even picked up the 256 gb. Will never never use OCZ again. So many lost hours......

1 out of 5 eggsBAD DRIVES

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Fast while it lasted

Cons: Bought this in Sept 2013 and it died July 2014. No surprise that these are out of stock and the referbs are too. This drive gave no inclination of failing, it just did. Don't even buy this product and anything else from them as IT WILL FAIL. Going back to the tried and true WD Love them. Never Ever had a prob with them. Don't suspect that I ever will. FYI stay away from PNY also they are a very close 2nd on the bottom of the pile for drives. Waiting on an RMA

Other Thoughts: Don't buy OCZ or PNY
