2 out of 5 eggsWorks, but don't use it for a permanent drive.

Pros: This drive is an OK entry level SSD. The speeds are only half what you can currently get with Samsung drives of similar cost and size.

Cons: I used this drive for a solid 2 years without many issues.
So far, i've had to re-install windows twice due to some ghost problems that caused the OS to no longer boot. As a result, i started saving my files to a different drive by habit. Everything, Desktop, documents, etc.

Hint: In your user folder, right click the folder, and in one of the tabs, you can manually redirect elsewhere (I suggest doing this with ANY SSD due to their well known shorter than usual life span. Also, why not be safe when you have to reinstall, like i have had to do.)

Other Thoughts: After 2 years, the drive has finally called it quits on me. The site here states a 3 year warranty, but from what i read, OCZ are sticklers about Proof of purchase. I'm sure that my purchase history is conclusive enough to show that i have done so.

I give this 2/5 Eggs due to it's problems. When it did work, it worked well and without fault, but due to it's tendency to have these problems, i wouldn't recommend it for any sort of sustained use of any files you want to keep.

1 out of 5 eggswould not waste money on OCZ products anymore

Pros: good products when it work

Cons: tech support is horrible ,

OCZ will not DO RMA or warranty for you if your missing or lost the receipt so beware of their products

would not waste money on their stuff again

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

OCZ, like most companies, does require a purchase receipt/invoice to verify date and place of purchase in the event a RMA is necessary. If you have lost your receipt I can certainly help with that. If you log into your Newegg account you can view your order history going back years! All you need to do is log in, go to order history, then find your purchase date or search "OCZ". Once you locate your order just click Inv #xxxxxxxx, take a screenshot or print and scan a copy, then send it to us. That is all we need!

We look forward to resolving this issue!

Best Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very FAST drive. My customer was very happy with the performance. Good price! In my customer's words: "I love this thing!! Sometimes I open a bunch of stuff all at once just to celebrate how freakishly fast this thing is!"

Cons: This drive fell victim to SDS (Sudden Death Syndrome) after 10 months of flawless, problem-free usage. one day O/S became frozen, my customer shutdown the laptop, then attempted to reboot. The system BIOS was unable to detect the drive. After researching on OCZ support forums, found many others have the same issues with the Vertex series drives.

Other Thoughts: If you decide to go with the OCZ Vertex series drive, be sure to perform a system image backup and regular daily or weekly backups of your data. These drives can suddenly die when you least expect it. Once the SSD dies, data recovery is not possible (unless you pay thousands of $ to send it out)

3 out of 5 eggsAfter nearly a year..

Pros: Very nice for beginner ssd
Easy to set up, plug in, works fine for most modern device

Cons: Not as fast as I would like
Drive would sometimes lock up, and freeze the computer
One day computer is doing just fine, freezes on loading a webpage.
:( Whole drive is dead. Almost at the end of the year, found I couldn't rma it either.

Other Thoughts: All in all a nice drive for somebody starting out, but it just isn't worth the money for less than one year of working (consumer based work, not server use or heavy IO).

I enjoyed the drive, but am ashamed I bought this and it wasn't as good or usable to me as my old hdd from a cheap netbook laptop.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Thomas,

The Vertex Plus R2 does carry a 3-year warranty. If you haven't already please contact OCZ directly so we can evaluate for a warranty resolution.

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

1 out of 5 eggsRMA ticket in

Pros: Fast

Cons: Unreliable

Other Thoughts: This being my first experience owning an SSD and purchasing from OCZ, I have to say I am very dissapointed. I have put an RMA ticket in just now and hopefully it will not be more of a pain than it already is. My HDD that is currently in my computer as a backup has worked for over 5 years and my only complaints with it is the speed and the noise it produces, other than that it has been reliable compared to this OCZ SSD.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to see you experienced problems with the Vertex Plus R2. Whether pursuing the RMA with Newegg or OCZ directly it will be a fast and easy process. If you experience any issues at all with the replacement please visit our Support Forum and we will gladly assist with setup or explore alternative options.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience but are confident your replacement will function properly.

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -fast
-low power
-less than $1/GB

Cons: The price per GB may have been less than $1/GB, but SSDs are still rather expensive compared to hard drives

Other Thoughts: I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my little brother and helped him set his computer up with it and a fresh install of Windows to ensure maximum speed.

He was resistant about the idea of reinstalling Windows at first but now that all is said and done, he is very happy with it. He likes to brag about how much faster *everything* on his computer loads than on all his friend's computers which I think is a good way to tell that an SSD is a great addition if your budget allows.

2 out of 5 eggsLasted for 3 months....

Pros: Works pretty quickly at least compared to a HDD. I love how quiet it is and the added battery life to my laptop since SSD's use less power. Also got a good deal on it. I paid $75 and got a $15 MIR. But you get what you pay for...

Cons: Gave out after 3 months. My laptop froze, I attempted to restart and it never got past the boot screen. I put in an old HDD and it started right up and the SSD could not be seen when plugged into an external hard drive case. Super lame having your laptop give out, even lamer to lose all of your data. I left it at 2 stars because I just RMA'd OCZ so depending on whether or not they can help me out, the score will go up or down. I get that sometimes, things fail, but if they can't own it, I'll take my business elsewhere.

Manufacturer Response:

The Vertex Plus R2 is very reliable and I have confidence your replacement will perform without issue. If you have any issues with the RMA process or have problems with your replacement please contact me at rcampbell at ocztechnology dot com and I will get you taken care of.

Thank you and I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
