1 out of 5 eggsDied

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

Pros: Worked pretty well for 4ish months and then died.

Cons: Sent it in to OCZ and they honored the warranty and got another one to me within a couple weeks. That one died again after about 3 months and I didn't feel like going through the warranty process again.

Other Thoughts: Not worth the money or the effort.

2 out of 5 eggsDo not buy

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

Pros: SSD's are really fast but are they worth it?

Cons: I bought this in 2013 and it's the second OCZ I've owned and the second to go bad. One is bad luck, two in a row it just a junk product. Moving on!

2 out of 5 eggsFast but unreliable

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

Pros: When it works, it's fast, as a SSD should be.

Cons: It is very unreliable. Almost like clockwork, it has crashed on me about every 3 months since I bought it, requiring a full format in order to reinstall the OS. Luckily I have enough redundancy on my storage HDDs that it isn't a big loss, but they are meant for storage and I hate having to use them for anything but that.

Long story short, I bought these for cheap, and I guess I got what I paid for; initially impressive technology that quickly failed on me. Because of the nature of the failures, I could not expect a replacement or refund, and from now on I'll be avoiding the OCZ from now on.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Ryan F.,

My name is Robert and I monitor customer feedback on behalf of OCZ Storage Solutions. I am sorry to read of the recurring issue with your Vector SSD. If you contact me directly I can attempt to correct the problem remotely. OCZ has released two firmware updates for the Vector SSD since the initial release in 2012. Correcting this issue, if it is actually storage related, may be as simple as applying the firmware update. If the problem continues unresolved I will make RMA arrangements to test and, if necessary, replace the drive in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty.

Please contact me using the email address below. I am confident I can resolve this experience to your satisfaction.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,

Robert

2 out of 5 eggsFailed at almost 2 years

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

Pros: Was good while it lasted.

Cons: Failed at 1 year 9 months. Complete failure (after a few weeks of errors) - unrecognized in any computer I test it in.

Other Thoughts: Going to attempt sending it in for Warranty - I'll update this review if they replace it.

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.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,

Robert

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:

Dear Valued Consumer,

We are very sorry to read of this issue! The Vector SSD does include a 5-year warranty period. If you contact us we will attempt to correct the problem remotely.

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. :(

Manufacturer Response:
