1 out of 5 eggsdrive failing

Pros: Very fast boot times

Cons: Drive constantly fails and crashes. I can keep my system turned on for 10-15 minutes, but then it crashes over and over. I even tried re-installing Windows and having the same problems.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after a month

Pros: Very quick in my MacBook Pro, which only supports 1.5Gbps SATA. I was able to run multiple applications and hard disk intensive operations at the same time, such as performing a Time Machine backup while running Windows in Parallels, without performance issues. Boot times were about 5 seconds under OS X Lion.

Cons: The drive died after about a month of use. Purchased on 9/20/11, died on 11/4/11. After attempting to troubleshoot Mac until I was certain it wasn't my laptop, I looked online concerning the drive and found many many many reviews where this particular drive model dies at a very young age.

Other Thoughts: My faith in OCZ has been rocked by this drive, not only from my experience but others as well. This is the first OCZ product I have had issues with, and hopefully will be the last, otherwise my next OCZ product will be my last.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsDied after 15 months

Pros: Fast, cool, fairly affordable for the capacity.

Cons: Failed after 15 months.

Other Thoughts: I loved this SSD in my Macbook Pro 3,1 until the day it died (last night, as of the time of this writing). But it does have a 3 year warranty, so hopefully OCZ support will replace my drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry for the problem. Please visit the link below and create a support ticket to get in touch with our support staff to arrange for a replacement drive.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Reliability

Pros: Fast speeds. not much else.

Cons: Reliability. Just a month after buying my 250 GB Vertex it failed. I figured okay it might just have been on the stores self for a long time and may have been a early production model. OCZ sent me a new drive and they said it was fresh off the production line and it shipped directly from Taiwan.

This new drive failed just 3 weeks later. OCZ said they started making drives with the new 1.4 firmware and that they'd send me a new one.

I installed this drive and it was working fine from about late October to the end of April 2010. The drive failed just a couple days right during finals and no matter how much you back things up you still lose data.

OCZ also makes their customers pay to ship the drive back to them. Honestly after paying over $700 for their product I'd expect them to pick up the tab on their failing product

Other Thoughts: I'm done with OCZ. I'm never buying another one of their SSD's, power supplies or anything. I'm going to call up customer support and demand my $700 back for them selling a faulty product. Trying to get my files and college project back to the point they were at before the drive failed has been a nightmare but I'm willing to bet I won't even receive an apology from OCZ.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,we are very sorry for the problem, and you lost work. Please contact our support manager at (408)733-8400, ext 206. We will be happy to assist you.
Thank you
