Thanks to cost effective NAND and controller technology, the Vertex Plus R2 offers lower cost per gigabyte configurations than competing drives on the market, making them excellent starting points into the world of SSDs.

3 out of 5 eggsFast then dead

Pros: Fast easy to install. Ran great while it ran.

Cons: Died after 19 months. System crashed one day and it would not boot. It couldn't see the drive. Neither could 2 other systems. I'll look into warranty.

Other Thoughts: Just glad I backed up the drive to an external disk 4 days ago. I'll look into the 3 year warranty.

Cons: Unreliable lifespan.

Other Thoughts: I can't believe it. This drive died on me after only 9 months. Completely unreadable internally/externally. I brought life to my aging system with this part but now I'm regretting it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking Well So Far

Pros: The drive was recognized right away by my m/b, and I was able to install Win7 without a hitch. I use this drive almost exclusively for the OS. There are a few programs running on it.

Cons: It's only SATA 2. In this day and age, the bottleneck is neither CPU speed nor RAM; it's the connection between m/b + hdd and write speed of the hdd. SSD is noticeably faster than a hdd, but why on earth anyone would cheap out on SATA 2 after shelling out for a high capacity SSD is kind of beyond me...except I did it too. lol

Other Thoughts: The drive works. It's fast. 240g is comfortable for ANY Windows distro (I tried to put Home Server on a 120g SSD a while back before I realized it wasn't large enough capacity). I would spend the extra $30-$50 on a SATA 3 drive, if I could do it all over again.

Also, I cannot comment on durability. It's only 4 months old, 3+ of heavy use.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: Fast, easy install, nice size, low price, 3 year warranty.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Fantastic drive, install was quick and easy. Put Win 7 64 bit on the drive and WOW does it fly and for less than $150.

5 out of 5 eggsBest SSD!

Pros: Does what the manufacturer says it does, and more. Connected the cables, inserted a fresh copy of Win7Pro in the DVD, and sat back for about three minutes. It took longer to program my apps than it did to put Win7 on either PC.

Cons: None that I've found. I had a slow laptop (Vista), and did NOT like Win8Pro on my new desktop. I played with Win8 for well over a month trying to get used to it, but found it was more of a hindrance than help, for me. Two new OCZ Vertex SSDs and two new copies of Win7Pro from NewEgg cured both of my PC problems.

Other Thoughts: Maximum PC mag says the OCZ Vertex is the best SSD, and I believe it! I bought one for my laptop (Vista to Win7) and one for my desktop (Win8 to Win7). Both boot up in 30 seconds, shut down in about 6 seconds. It's the easiest and best way to give your PC a quick boost of energy all the way around. I can't believe how quick my apps work now on both PCs. Newegg had both SSDs and the Win7Pro disks in my hands in 2 days...Newegg rocks!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product So Far

Pros: Replaced my previous 250 GB 7200 RPM Hard drive with this one on my 4-years Toshiba Cosmio X505-830. It was recognized by the BIOS with no problems at all. Created 2 partitions with 115 GB each. Installed the OS (Windows 7 Pro) and all updates smoothly on the first partition. Used the scond partition for day-to-day data storeage. Installed SQL Server 2012 and Visual Studio 2012 with all rngs and bells. Several other apps for work. My heavy laptop started booting way faster and shuts down even faster than before. Working time on battery went up with 30-50%. It looks like the laptop has a lot better oferall performance. I am very satisfied by the hard drive.

Cons: I can't see anything wrong so far. I hope it will last longer than some of the other reviews.

Other Thoughts: Well, initially I tried to clone my existing OS, but as other people say - brand new re-install is highly recommended. I have several other conventional HDs with good speed and capacity, so 230 GB is just about enough for my daily needs. I also kept the other HD as a ready-to-go backup. I also made a system image of the SSD, so if something goes wrong, I wouldn't loose data.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: High capacity, fair price

Cons: Problematic, continuous issues

Other Thoughts: First one I received went bad after less than two weeks. Got a replacement from OCZ and am having problems with the replacement only 5 days later! I'd go with the agility 3 to save yourself from any issues.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I can confidently say the OCZ Support Forum is great at resolving issues such as this. If you continue to experience issues with your OCZ product please contact us and we will help get your drive working properly.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer beware.

Pros: None

Cons: First drive arrived DOA. I messed with it for hours tying to get my HP Proliant Microserver to recognize the drive to install WHS2011. Finally thought it might need a flash update so I download the latest flash for the drive from OCZ and created a boot CD. I put it in my desktop computer and it didn't recognize it either. My conclusion. Bad drive. Waiting for the replacement.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if you can get a refund on this drive if you get it DOA. Also, I don't understand why I have to pay +$10 in shipping to send it back to Newegg. That should be covered for a DOA drive.
