1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy!!!

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: None.

Cons: There can be no positives for this product as it does not last just look at the reviews. I have had mine less than a year and I am on my third vector guys there is a reason ocz went bankrupt and got bought by toshiba. The drive always just randomly fails and becomes undetectable in the bios another common theme read the reviews guys and DONT BUY THIS BUY A SAMSUNG. I just sent my drive to ocz and I can't wait to get it back so I can sell it and buy a new samsung 850 pro. If you buy this it will fail just understand that going in I ignored the reviews and hoped I would luck out nope 3rd drive in less than a year and when they send you a drive back which you have to pay to send them they send you a refurb unit.

Other Thoughts: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! BUY CHEAP YOU GET CHEAP!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am very sorry to read of these recurring problems.

Vector is a fantastic SSD and most users have nothing but a positive experience. The review right below yours (sort by date) is a 5 egg review from a verified owner using a Vector drive for nearly two years with "zero issues". If you have experienced 3 Vector issues in the last year you likely have another issue contributing to the problems you have experienced. Our support staff can help you sort those issues out.

Please contact us about this. We will gladly assess your system configuration and help you setup for optimal reliability.

Best Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

Pros: Reliable, Fast, Sleek Design

Cons: Nothing, I have had zero issues

4 out of 5 eggsFast Drive, Short Life

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Very fast SSD
Much improved RMA support from OCZ from my experience
Came with 3.5" adapter and screws if you need them

Cons: Died after a little over a year
Started failing right before the new firmware was released

Other Thoughts: Latest firmware update is supposed to fix some of the problems with failing drives. RMA process was painless. I received a new Vector 150 240GB SSD as a replacement. Total time for RMA was about 2 weeks. I did have to pay for shipping but that was a minor thing.

1 out of 5 eggsterrible

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Fast

Cons: I have replaced more of these then the old 40GB maxtor drives a decade ago. The worst SSD on the market. Unreliable. When you send one back, they secure erase it thinking that fixes it. It doesn't, ever. Then you are forced to have an unstable drive that still had bad sectors, they just shave a few more gigs off of the total drive size and say it's fine. It's not. It sucks.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

When a SSD is returned to us under RMA we immediately purge all remaining data on the drive. The drive is then tested extensively and we attempt to reproduce any unusual reported behavior. If the drive passes all tests it is restored to an empty status similar to a like-new condition. If you continue to see problems with the drive it is likely unique to your usage environment or equipment. Please contact us again and let us know the problems you are experiencing continue. We will help you however we can.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Best Regards,

3 out of 5 eggsGreat While it Worked

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: This drive was amazingly fast. It was ahead of it's time with a true read/write of over 500mb/sec... I put it in a laptop of mine, and hot dang that thing loaded up super fast... All that changed though when it suddenly died on me.

Cons: This thing did the normal thing that is happening to all these drives..... It died. I had to reboot my laptop a few times after installing some stuff. In one of those installs, I did a hard power boot. After restarting from that, the drive through a bunch of corrupt data file errors when booted to windows. I tried rebooted a few more times, and on the 4th reboot, "drive not detected"... The laptop no longer recognized the drive. I tried it in 3 other computers, and it actually messed with the MBR 1 of, but basically took 45 seconds to be looked at by the bios before loading some errors. The drive died and it's not just dead, it's like a crazy anomaly to all computers basically freezing them while it's plugged in. All that data is gone, because it was the only drive in my school laptop... Which is horrible. Just super frustrating to have the thing just over a year and then bam, dead... I hope OCZ or whoever they are now will honor a warranty or replacement of some sort. But i'm scared they'll just give me a drive of the same model which is a ticking timebomb. I submitted a support ticket, hoping to hear SOMETING back soon.

Don't by the drive unless you want to replace it in about a year, if it works at all from the beginning.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a good product

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: For the third time. The drive is no longer recognized by the BIOS. The last time, OCZ replaced with a reconditioned with firmware 2.0. After 1 year, the same problem occurs. It's been 3 times that I cried at customer service from OCZ. Nobody answers me. However, the product is guaranteed for 5 years.
Very disappointed with the service. I decided to buy a Samsung Pro 840 to replace. Submit to me OCZ.

Cons: ............

2 out of 5 eggsGood until...

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Worked perfectly right out of the box for a little over a year. Extremely fast, no hiccups.

Cons: 1 year and 4 months in, I reboot my computer one night and... it's dead. BIOS and Windows can't detect it, it hangs my start-up while it tries to talk to it, and no way to recover after much troubleshooting. It's dead Jim.

Other Thoughts: Was great until it just upped and died. Will try going through warranty for a replacement. Very disappointed. I'm not even a heavy user.
