1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 3 years

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

Pros: Seemed reasonably fast

Cons: Used this as a boot drive for a little over three years. Then one day the BIOS no longer saw the drive. Tried reseating cables but that didn't help. Since this was used as the boot drive, computer would no longer boot and reported no boot drive present.

Other Thoughts: Should last longer than three years of use. Not recommended. I'm now using other brand SSDs.

1 out of 5 eggsOCZ 256GB FREEZING, CONFIRMED

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

Pros: Specs are good on paper
SERIOUS FREEZING PROBLEM

Cons: Took me 2 years+ to conclude this drive has serious FREEZING problem to the point you can not use it at all. it Freezes the computer every few minutes. swapped out the drive fixed the problem instantly. wipe disk, formatting did not fix the problem.
I blamed it on other components in my PC for 2 years trusting this OCZ SSD never fails. I was wrong. I also saw other reviews complained about the same FREEZING problem. I paid high dollars for this drive when it came out.
Bad thing is I discovered this Just pass my 3 years warranty, Guess I will never buy OCZ again unless they read my review and offer to allow RMA for a good working SSD. Cross my fingers....

Other Thoughts: I am 100% sure the FREEZING problem of this specific MODEL. I have 4 PCs to test this drive and the problem follows the drive no matter what I did to fix such as wipe disk, delete partition, reformat, reinstall fresh image.

4 out of 5 eggsDied just over two years after purchase

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

Pros: Worked great for the first few months. This was my first SSD drive, it worked great for 6 months, then I started getting disk read errors when booting into windows.

Cons: I expected the drive last longer, I have manual drives that have survived 3 times longer than this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsSold years later

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

Pros: its 2015 and these 3 year old drives are still running strong. they have been in a RAID0 array sense day one and have provided 800+ MB/s read/write operations reliably the entire time, no slowing down with age, and no data retention issues like some other major SSD drives.

Cons: i don't want nor need to upgrade?

Other Thoughts: the Intel Rapid Storage drivers when i first added them to my build were junk and caused regular crashing. thankfully an update or two later and everything settled down. there have been no issues at all sense then. (this was the first month of owner ship)

2 out of 5 eggsDied in two years

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

Pros: The price was very good when I bought it - Black friday sale. The storage size was decent back in 2012.

Cons: It started slowing down after a year.
The disk just died. I bought it on 11/22/2012 and today is 09/03/2015.
So it lasted about 2 years and 3 months.
This drive was on a desktop machine running Windows 8.1 and wasn't used too often because I mainly use my Laptop. I also had a regular HDD for file storage - steam games etc.

Other Thoughts: It only lasted 2 years.

Cons: The price has more than doubled. Why?

Other Thoughts: It's a good drive but $400? No way!

3 out of 5 eggsDead after two years of use.

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

Pros: None

Cons: Dies after only a few years of use

Other Thoughts: Bought this SSD on 8/14/12, and it has worked flawlessly up until today (1/25/15). Windows froze and I restarted the machine. After I restarted, the BIOS did not detect the SSD.

I checked multiple cables to make sure it wasn't just the cable or plug that was bad, none of them resulted in the detection of the SSD.

I wouldn't recommend buying this, really. I've read about a lot of people who have had their OCZ Vertex die on them after a couple of years use.

Do not buy.

5 out of 5 eggsBest upgrade to my computer in years

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

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
