1 out of 5 eggs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: !!!!!!OCZ Sold Out. DO NOT BUY OCZ PRODUCTS!!!!!
THEY WILL NOT WARRANTY PRODUCT PRE-SELLOUT TO TOSHIBA.

Cons: I contacted customer support on 04/11/2014 and they said that they do not offer support for product from OCZ Technologies. I asked them if they could give me some sort of credit they replied NO. I asked them if there was anything they could do for me and they said NO.

Cons: I am on my 4th one.
First one - overheated!
Second one - HD went bad. ( Click of death! )
Third One - HD went Bad (Click of Death! )
Fourth one - is just disappearing from windows after a reboot it is back !!!

Other Thoughts: Do Not buy this product ever not even for $10...!!

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Consumer,

We are sorry to read about the issues you have had with the RevoDrive Hybrid. While SSD are very resilient, HDD are very fragile and must be handled with care. Excessive bumps or abuse can damage the moving parts and result in a "click of death" as you reference. Please contact us about this issue. It sounds like the issue you are experiencing with the current RevoDrive Hybrid is related to configuration or installation and can be corrected.

Please contact us at your earliest convenience using the link below.

We look forward to helping you!

Kind Regards,

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

There seems to be a misunderstanding here. OCZ Storage Solutions honors warranties on all Vertex Series (Vertex, Vertex 2, Vertex 3, Vertex 4, Vertex 450, Vertex 460 and variants) drives as outlined in the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty. Most issues can be resolved with simple troubleshooting. However, if your Vertex 4 experiences an issue we cannot remotely correct we will definitely arrange to get the drive back under a RMA.

I am not sure I understand the manufacturer response you have pasted - it appears to be from a RevoDrive Hybrid which is a totally different drive. The Vertex 4 is not a Hard Disk and cannot fail with a "click of death". Nor do the Vertex 4 drives have any issue with overheating.

If you are having any issue with your Vertex 4 please contact us. We will gladly assist and get you taken care of.

Kind Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The drive was simple to install, worked right out of the box, fit with relatively little tinkering into my case, and was nice and speedy. Initial Windows install went in under 10 minutes

Cons: And it died on me last night. I thought it might just be a Windows Update screwup, but not even bios sees it. It's dead, Jim.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

We are very sorry to read of your sudden problems with the Vertex 4. If you haven't sought a replacement through Newegg please contact our Tech Support and we will get you taken care of. You may also contact our Support Forums as we often resolve detection issues quickly without the need for exchanges/RMA.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy install
Very fast

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wanted to build a fast basic desktop for my wife and this SSD worked out well. I am running Windows 8.1 and this thing is fast. Like the other users say, once you go to an SSD you can't go back!

5 out of 5 eggsSTill going

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, just plain fast. My mother board takes longer to load than the OS does. All my games and programs loaded on it load almost instantly. I have had no problems with the install or operation of the SSD.

Cons: only 128gb

5 out of 5 eggsSolid choice

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I bought this ssd on 9/26/2012 and its still running strong with no issue.

Cons: None currently

Other Thoughts: A lot of people seem to have an issue with OCZ and I always seem to hear the same horror story about them. Most cases a simple firmware update would of corrected the issue. Always read up on the products you buy and take the time to check for firmware updates and you will have a better chance on not having a problem with it.

2 out of 5 eggsHappy Friggin' New Year

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -Fast boot

Cons: It died after having it for 14 months. Just yesterday, it started having BSOD and Error Loading OS.
I only load my OS on the SSD so I figured a quick wipe and reinstall would solve my problem, but it did not.

Other Thoughts: Probably going to go with a Samsung for my replacement.

Manufacturer Response:

Please contact us directly so we can assist you with this. Usually an issue like this is quickly correctable through either a firmware update, BIOS, or OS configuration adjustment. If we cannot correct the issue we will make arrangements to replace the drive in accordance with the warranty terms.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support
