5 out of 5 eggsSold years later

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

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 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

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.

Pros: Still running. I paid 219.99 January 2013.

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 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

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 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?
