1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 6 months

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Fast as anything else at the time- very satisfied with the speed
Easy to install

Cons: reliability

Other Thoughts: This SSD failed a little before 6 months old.Bought this early 2012 and it got put away and forgotten. I assumed by now, it would be out of warranty, but, website says a limited 5 year warranty at the time. Someone says they are only 3 years now., So now trying to create a RMA. We'll see.
Note: My Samsung SSD's with the same size also bought and installed at the same time still good now for over 2 years. Not sure about OCZ now.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

We are very sorry to read of this issue! A newly-purchased Vector SSD does include a 5-year warranty period, not 3 years. It appears you have already initiated a support case/RMA request. If our support staff cannot quickly correct the issue we will make RMA arrangements to test and, if necessary, repair/replace the drive in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty.

If you have any difficulties with the support or RMA process don't hesitate to contact me using the email address below.

Kind Regards,

Robert

4 out of 5 eggsGood service

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Drive was fast at first and had a good build to it

Cons: The drive failed just after a year of use, it was always a bit slow to boot, and when originally purchased it was much more expensive then other ssd's

Other Thoughts: The drive did fail but when I contacted OCZ support I was quickly and efficiently taken care of and after a few back and forth email strings I was able to get a refund for my drive at current market value AND they provided me with a shipping label, I rate their customer care very high and appreciate what they did. It's nice to have confidence in a company these days.

1 out of 5 eggsData Corruption

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Very fast. A very nice SSD drive when it works.

Cons: Data corruption and data loss. I normally go 2+ years without having to reinstall OS. I have two of these drives in two machines both running the OS. Both have required 3 reinstalls during the last year. One died at 13 months.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these drives in Aug 2013. After data loss I've updated each to the latest firmware. Both were at V3 (the latest) about 3 months ago. One just died. OCZ Toolbox can see the drive, but can't do a secure erase. It hangs at 66% and eventually ends with "Secure Erase Failed" Attempt to reflash firmware also fails. Looks like I'm going to have to RMA.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst SSD out there!

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: None!

Cons: 2 Years... 2 SSD drives... They usually last 8 - 12 months. The drive randomly fails and becomes undetectable in the bios. Just sent another to RMA and I am sure they are going to send me the same refurbish SSD model back :-( I will never by a OCZ product in my life!

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy!!!

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: None.

Cons: There can be no positives for this product as it does not last just look at the reviews. I have had mine less than a year and I am on my third vector guys there is a reason ocz went bankrupt and got bought by toshiba. The drive always just randomly fails and becomes undetectable in the bios another common theme read the reviews guys and DONT BUY THIS BUY A SAMSUNG. I just sent my drive to ocz and I can't wait to get it back so I can sell it and buy a new samsung 850 pro. If you buy this it will fail just understand that going in I ignored the reviews and hoped I would luck out nope 3rd drive in less than a year and when they send you a drive back which you have to pay to send them they send you a refurb unit.

Other Thoughts: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! BUY CHEAP YOU GET CHEAP!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am very sorry to read of these recurring problems.

Vector is a fantastic SSD and most users have nothing but a positive experience. The review right below yours (sort by date) is a 5 egg review from a verified owner using a Vector drive for nearly two years with "zero issues". If you have experienced 3 Vector issues in the last year you likely have another issue contributing to the problems you have experienced. Our support staff can help you sort those issues out.

Please contact us about this. We will gladly assess your system configuration and help you setup for optimal reliability.

Best Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Reliable, Fast, Sleek Design

Cons: Nothing, I have had zero issues

4 out of 5 eggsFast Drive, Short Life

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Very fast SSD
Much improved RMA support from OCZ from my experience
Came with 3.5" adapter and screws if you need them

Cons: Died after a little over a year
Started failing right before the new firmware was released

Other Thoughts: Latest firmware update is supposed to fix some of the problems with failing drives. RMA process was painless. I received a new Vector 150 240GB SSD as a replacement. Total time for RMA was about 2 weeks. I did have to pay for shipping but that was a minor thing.
