1 out of 5 eggsDead after 3 months

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: No "Pros" when the drive is dead.

Cons: The drive is dead

Other Thoughts: Don't be stupid like me and waste your money on this drive.
I purchased the OCZ Vertex for a customer of mine. The drive worked well for about 3 months then died. The Dell T5400 would not see it anymore. I put the drive in a StarTech SATDOCK22RE Hard Drive Duplicator Dock (which I love). It does not see the drive. I contacted OCZ customer support. I was told to update my bios and not to use the StarTech dock. But after a few more emails OCZ gave an RMA #. The turn around was very fast. OCZ sent back my original drive with a note stating "No fault found". So now I have a drive that 4 computers will not see. I understand that everything can break but OCZ's customers support is useless.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I have located your RMA number and testing results and see the drive detected fine and passed all tests when received. It is important to us that your Vertex 450 delivers the performance, productivity, reliability, and energy efficiency promised. Usually in cases like this the host system just needs to be reset or cables swapped. If you continue to experience issues you can still contact us and we will help determine the problem with your system. Knowing the drive has passed all tests through our RMA process will help narrow down the potential causes.

Please contact us again using the link below and we will gladly assist further! Please also reference your previous RMA number when contacting us.

Best Regards,

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

1 out of 5 eggsFail Fail Fail

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 0

Cons: I have 3 of this disks, two of the bought in pair in USA and installed in two computers, now disk died the first day, the second lasted few hours in total max 12 hours of use. I got the third disk from a website and this 3rd disk lasted maybe for 12 hours also, so I can not recommend this since this seems to be total waste of money buying this junk.

1 out of 5 eggsthis drive is garbage

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Drive is really fast when it works.

Cons: We are now on our third RMA because every three months these drives fail. Seeing all of the other reviews on here they ALL say the same thing. OCZ paved the way in solid state drives and usually produce top quality products. to say i"m disappointed in these drives is an understatement. the only reason they got a star was because there's not a zero star option.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast when it works!

Cons: Buggy at best, have gone through 2 of these drive, never last more several months under normal usage! Totally frustrated at this point, lost all my info on my laptop again.

Other Thoughts: I have never left a bad review before, this is by far the most buggy product I have ever used since Vista first cam out!

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsPretty darn good support

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Solid design
Was reasonably priced.
Pretty fast (while it lasted)

Cons: 2nd failure from same batch within a couple months.
Only 3 stars because of multiple failures.

Other Thoughts: This is an update from my prior review - - -
OCZ customer service is very responsive (they are already working to resolve the issue).
Since I have had prior experience with their support, and seeing how quickly and professionally they respond, I have a higher level of confidence that OCZ will do the right thing to preserve their quality and reputation.
It is rare, in today's marketplace, to see a vendor with pride in their product, and willing to take the time to attempt to resolve problems on a one-on-one basis.
OCZ Technical Support is on-par with Newegg support, and that says volumes about them.

1 out of 5 eggs2nd failure from same batch

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Solid construction with heavy aluminum body.
Reasonable price.
Came with mounting bracket.
Performance was good while it lasted (3 months)

Cons: Only lasted 3 months
System lockup - No Boot - No P.O.S.T. while SSD was connected.
total data loss - non recoverable (have backup from a week ago)
2nd 450 failure from same batch I purchased.

Other Thoughts: My prior RMA (another drive from same batch)was handled well by OCZ, and 'Robert' assured me that it was an isolated failure at that time.
I'm now considering taking the remaining SSD's from that same batch out of service before they fail with additional data loss and emergency labor involved, not to mention the cost of shipping and insurance to return each.
Newegg no longer sells this model, and it is only available from 3rd party vendors like @ction P@ck@ged.
I can verify that OCZ has a history of 'orphaning' technology, as I tried to purchase a replacement motherboard from one of their 'whitebook' laptops that was 1.5 years old and no parts were available - anywhere.

I would like to see OCZ 'Man-Up' when they have a defective series of products and at least offer to pay for return shipping during the RMA process, since the customer already has to absorb the labor cost of replacement as well as their data loss.
There - I said it.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I recall our previous dialogue and can definitely assist you with this. Please contact me again using the email address below and I will certainely get this taken care of.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience.

1 out of 5 eggs2 RMA Replacements in 6 Months

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Customer support is responsive.

Cons: Original retail drive failed just days after the Newegg return policy expired. Got an RMA, paid to ship it to OCZ, received a refurbished replacement. 3 months later, the replacement checked out. Got an RMA, paid to ship it to OCZ, received a different model with similar specs as a replacement (also refurbished).

Other Thoughts: I'm done. At this rate, I'll have paid for the drive twice over in return shipping costs by this time next year - and who knows what they'll be sending me as an RMA replacement if it goes that far. It's not worth the time or the money. I'm losing billable time and my data is being compromised every time this happens. I'm writing this purchase off and getting a different drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am very sorry to read you have experienced a chain of issues with the Vertex 450. The Vertex 450 is a very reliable drive that I have used myself for many months without any issue. If you continue to experience any issues at all please contact me directly. I will take whatever steps are necessary to resolve the situation to your satisfaction. Even if you are not currently experiencing issues of any kind, I can analyze your current drive health and setup configuration to achieve the most reliable operation possible.

3 out of 5 eggsDead Drive

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 450 Series VTX450-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Speed of the drive is outstanding, When it actually worked.

Cons: Died in a little over a month and a half.

I give it 3 stars because I have owned many great products from OCZ in the past.

Other Thoughts: I have owned two other Vertex 2 series drives in the past and they were amazing, never had any problems with them. I have shopped with Newegg for over 10 years and purchased many OCZ products. Though, I am very disappointed in this product series.

I am currently returning this product to OCZ. I will share how the new one I receive performs in the future. But I would not recommend this particular product series from OCZ.
