3 out of 5 eggsGreat til it died

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

Pros: Fast and inexpensive. Worked great until it didn't.

Cons: Died after ~17 months. Compltely unrecognized by BIOS, totally unable to get it to respond to anything.

Other Thoughts: Toshiba is honoring a 5y warranty on it, so I'm going to see if they'll replace it. Very frustrating to just up and lose the drive without any warning, though.

Manufacturer Response:

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

Pros: Good boot times on Windows 8.

Cons: Broke within warranty and replaced with a newer (slower and smaller) model. At least they honored the warranty.

Other Thoughts: It worked fine one day, the next day it woupd not show up in BIOS. I enjoyed it while it lasted, which was about a year.

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
