5 out of 5 eggsBest upgrade to my computer in years

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I have been a proud owner of this for over 2 years now

Fast, works great, runs Win7 and loads games lightning fast

If you have never bought a Solid State Drive before you won't believe the difference. Games that would take several minutes (up to 5min sometimes on my old 7500rpm disks) to load (L4D/2, etc) now load in a matter of seconds if even taking more than 1 second.

My computer has been on and running almost every single day for the last two years, with an average of 12-16 hours each day, sometimes even leaving it on for weeks at a time. This drive has never once failed and has had no faults, no lost data, no problems of any kind

Worth every penny

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you've never used SSD, stop living in the 90's and get one at any cost, this thing makes the WD Raptors look like rotary phones

4 out of 5 eggsFirst SSD, very happy

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: FAST. Reliable.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought the 256gb in 2012 for $159. I thought I might get a few more today, but the price is ridiculous at $473. There must be a limited quantity. If I wanted to spend that on one SSD I'd buy a 1TB 840 evo for less!

...hey wait, is this reverse psychology? Maybe you're wanting to sell more evos :)

5 out of 5 eggsFast and reliable

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This drive is fast and has been working great for me since 2012.

Cons: I don't understand why this drive is now more than double in price from when I bought it back in 2012 for $235.99. Sure, it's fast and reliable but the current price of $474.00 is nuts.

Other Thoughts: With so many SSDs coming out these days I can't see why this old drive would cost so much, but it is a good drive. Could it be they found out they had made something of quality for a change and then got greedy with it?

5 out of 5 eggsNo Complaints

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Decided to use this to replace the old OS SSD in my computer. I made the mistake of building it with a 64GB SSD and that was filled in a week. I did a few tests, not only is this 4x the size, but its also a little bit faster. Had it for almost 2 years now and no problems at all.

And a bonus, when I bought it almost 2 years ago, it was less than half its currently listed price.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsFast and Effiencient

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Runs fast and works very well. I only use it for my windows install and also a few games I want to run fast. SO far so good. 4 months off from 2 years and still running strong. I have formatted it maybe 6 times total. I heard that if you secure erase that sometimes it brings some more life back into it. But I am not 100 percent sure on that. The size is nice and small and it's quiet.

Cons: I had a few problems with scandisk errors on it constantly although health is at 98 percent on hard disk sentinel. And says nothing bad was found. Over 1000 days left. Could be software or older sata ports I was using. On my new mainboard, I don't' seem to have this problem.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why the price is so much atm, maybe because it's older technology now. I would defentily purchase a newer model for cheaper price. So far this drive has been quick enough for me and works efficiently enough for me to not need another one for now. Wanted to buy another for RAID 0, but with the price I will probably just buy 2 newer ones later down the line.

1 out of 5 eggsOCZ Vertex 4 Died after almost 1 year

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Worked fine till it died.

Cons: Ocz support is terrible.

Other Thoughts: After submitting my RMA request I was told try to return it to where I had originally purchased it. When I could not do that they told they could not process RMA's because OCZ had just been purchased by Toshiba so I had to wait another 3 weeks. The way they have their system set up you can only communicate with them through the RMA ticket system while they communicate with you via email. It is rather confusing since you don't have a linear record of your communications. You talk to them through their website they talk to you through email. Not to mention if there is no communication on your RMA ticket for 7 days they automaticly close it and you have to start a new one.

Once they started doing RMA's again and I sent them my SSD they said they could not give me the same model SSD and offered me this.

"We will provide VTX460-25ast3-240G.RF (refurbished drive) as a replacement.

This is an free upgrade offer.

Below is the SPEC for VTX460-25ast3-240G.RF (refurbished drive)

ocz.com/consumer/vertex-460-ssd/specifications

Please let us know if you will accept VTX460-25ast3-240G.RF (refurbished drive) as a replacement."

This one was 240 GB vs. 256 GB that the Vertex 4 had and also only had a 3 year warranty vs. the 5 year that the Vertex 4 had. They called it an upgrade but I did not see it that way. I pointed that out and told them I was not happy with their offer and they replied with this.

"We will provide VTR1-25sat3-256G.RF (refurbished drive) as a replacement.

This is an free upgrade offer.

Below is the SPEC for VTR1-25sat3-256G.RF (refurbished drive)

ocz.com/consumer/vector-7mm-sata-3-ssd/specifications

Please let us know if you will accept VTR1-25sat3-256G.RF (refurbished drive) as a replacement."

Yes it was 256 GB and had a 5 year warranty but it was an older drive and its specs were still not on par with the Vertex 4 that I had originally purchased. So I asked them if I could pay to upgrade to the 512 GB Vertex 4. They emailed me back saying they were not able to provide the service. The next email in my inbox that same day was from UPS with a tracking number. They did not wait for me to accept the offer, they just sent it whether I liked it or not. I begrudgingly accepted the SSD when it arrived as I had been without my laptop for 2 months and I would have had to pay to send it back to them I'm sure. I've been using the replacement for a month and a half now and its working so far. As for OCZ's support...there is much to be desired.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

First, let me apologize for the issue you experienced with the Vertex 4. The Vertex 4 has a great reputation for speed and reliability and issues with that drive are uncommon and usually correctable. I am also sorry you had a difficult time communicating with our Support Staff. During the time of the asset acquisition by Toshiba we transitioned to a new ticket system. Both systems allow you to see the entire ticket history. With our new system, in use for about 3 months, you receive an email when you first create your support ticket containing a link to the Tech Support portal. You can visit any time and view all information available. As we continue to communicate with you an email is dispatched.

I am very sorry you are disappointed with your replacement. Both the Vertex 460 and Vector are newer and provide similar if not faster function than your previous Vertex 4. Even if you had accepted the Vertex 460 your original warranty would have still been in effect. Your warranty period is always based on the purchase date of the original product.

I am confident your replacement drive will serve you well. If you experience an issue in the future we will be here to assist you.

Thank you for sharing your feedback.

Best Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

4 out of 5 eggsGreat till it dies - replaced with newer version

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Drive is insanely fast - up there with what is advertised - 550mb/s for big block sizes and sequential reads.

Cons: Drive died after a year... :(

Other Thoughts: Drive died after a year of ownership. OCZ replaced it after a little back and forth. Had to rma it twice as my drive wasn't completely dead but was on the way out (bsod once a day) and ocz didn't experience it.
