1 out of 5 eggsSecond time's the charm (not)

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Great size

Cons: I bought two of these... first one failed less than two months into it, had to RMA it. Now just a couple of months after I got that drive back and got the system going again, the second drive failed, too. /sigh -- time to RMA again.

Frankly... I wish I had never bought these drives. I wanted an SSD for speed and reliability. Speed is worthless when it doesn't work at all... hours of time lost setting things up, dealing with software licenses and so on... blown away twice now.

I have no desire to continue to use these drives. They scare me. The failure rate is not acceptable. I think I'm going to go back to platters and just use these for scratch disks... #@%& expensive scratch disks.

Other Thoughts: While OCZ has been good about their RMA process, I'm sorry... I would advise anyone reading over my shoulder to run from these drives.

1 out of 5 eggs~sigh~

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Great capacity, great performance... when it worked.

Cons: Less than six months old on a system that's well built, well cooled and not overclocked and, frankly, not worked hard and doing a normal Windows update, reboot the computer and *poof* the SSD simply stops working. BIOS won't recognize it at all. Tried it on a different port, tried it on a different computer, nothing. Gone. For the price, I would expect quality and performance for the long term. Reliability is everything... I do backups, but no backup makes up for the lost hours, the lost data that was created since the last back, nor the loss of access to the working system, the time it takes to rebuild a system, reinstall applications, deal with licenses that have to be reinstalled and on and on and on. The whole point of spending over $1000 on a pair of high performance, high capacity SSDs was to avoid exactly that. I could have done the same with a spindle drive for a fraction of the money.

Beyond disappointed.

Other Thoughts: Worthy of note... reading the forums and other comments, I am far from being the only user with this experience. Don't know if I'll ever buy OCZ again.

Manufacturer Response:

If you haven't already, please contact us at your earliest convenience and we will assist in resolving the issue or arrange for a prompt warranty resolution.

5 out of 5 eggsOCZ Vector VTR1 512GB

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Terrific Speed, Easy Install, Absolutely No Problems Encountered. The HD is so fast, it allows me to have Bitdefender antivirus and firewall at max protect and not even know it.

Cons: OCZ Toolbox was a waste of a download, but I'm not entirely sure If I had the right version. Will notify OCZ and get their expert opinion.

Other Thoughts: Expensive, but well worth it! I hope OCZ doesn't come out with a larger/faster drive for awhile, or I'll be chomping at the bit to buy another one of their products.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Vikingblood,

Thank you for the wonderful feedback! The OCZ Toolbox is used to update firmware, Secure Erase (wipes the drive), and monitor SMART data (self-monitoring tool). You do need to use the latest available version so Vector is detected properly. The link below includes the latest Desktop Toolbox (Windows Vista, 7, and 8), Bootable Toolbox (All OS), and Mac Bootable Toolbox (OS X) as well as instructions for each.

Thank you again for your purchase and feedback!

Sincerely,
OCZ Support

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 6 months

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Worked fine for a month or so.

Cons: First started getting some trouble with it after a month or so. Blue screens of death, random rebooting, and many other problems. So i just re-formatted, and changed some things to hopefully make it run better. Turned off paging etc. Worked fine for a few more months. Bought it in January and it's completely dead in May.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous,

OCZ will gladly arrange for a replacement. Please contact us using the link below and we will verify the failure of your Vector and arrange for a proper warranty resolution. I also recommend you visit our Support Forum prior to receiving your replacement so we can evaluate your system and offer setup assistance.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

2 out of 5 eggsgood after i can get it started & working properly

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: works good after i get it started

Cons: when i placed the order on jan 28th 2013 the first one was a DOA & i had to wait another 2 weeks & pay shipping both ways to RMA it back to new egg.i got the replacement feb 15th.the replacement works pretty good after rebooting the computer about 5 times.when i turn the computer on the first couple of times it freezes before it gets to the desktop & i have to physically shut the computer down & restart it a couple of times before it finally gets to the desktop.& even when it does get to the desktop it sometimes freezes even at the desktop.but once i get it working properly(which is usually after about 5 reboots)then the machine works great.

Other Thoughts: if the first SSD would not have been a DOA & if the replacement one wouldn,t freeze when trying to upload windows then i would give it a 5 but with all the rebooting that i have to do plus the fact that the first one was a DOA that,s why i am only giving it 2 eggs because of that.

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Unbelievably fast, easy to install, actually makes boot up fun. Programs load quicker feels like a new computer.

Cons: Kind of expensive but worth it.

Other Thoughts: My spinning hd died so I decided to upgrade to a SSD. The install was easy and has been running about a month with no issues. I'm going to buy another for my wifes computor asap.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Fast...Until They Die!

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Fast when working.

Cons: All five drives went bad within hours of installation!

Other Thoughts: I bought FIVE of these 512gb Vector drives. They all started acting erratic on the first day! Totally unacceptable! They started not showing up one by one. Then the OS drive was starting up with bad blocks. Total waste of time! I will never ever buy OCZ products based on this experience. I should listened to the other reviews. I replaced them with Samsung 840 Pro Series drives, and have have zero issues after nearly a week. And they're just as fast...but more importantly, RELIABLE! Steer clear of these like the plague! Would give zero eggs if possible.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear tonelab,

This is a very strange and unique situation. A single Vector failure is extremely rare, while 5 defies explanation. Vector has been proven to be an ultra-reliable SSD with extremely positive reviews, both in print and web. If all 5 of your drives failed either they were damaged in shipping or something was dramatically wrong with the system. I would normally like to gather information and make sure the drives are tested immediately, but it appears this purchase was not through Newegg.

If you ever experience something like this again please contact us immediately per the links below and we will investigate and provide you a total resolution.

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 30 days

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Fast drive access. Blows away platter based hard drives.

Cons: Dies without warning. My laptop suddenly had no hard drive. I tested the drive in an external "Black X" drive reader and the OCZ was stone cold dead. I tried several other SATA external drive readers and they all said, "What drive" If you get this driver, you'd better have a constant backup utility running. I lot one month's work.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear RJK,

If you haven't contacted Newegg for a prompt replacement please do so (if still within the replacment window). You may also contact us directly and we will make replacement arrangements. If you have any issues at all with the replacement please visit our Support Forum and we will assist in getting the drive setup and working properly.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

5 out of 5 eggsFaaaast.

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-512G 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC

Pros: The speed at both the uncompressed and compressed file types. amazing. (when it worked)

Cons: As most who know that have it. The (power-fail firmware corrupt issue) is kinda a huge Con... But with that said, I am so Glad to hear it is only a Firmware issue, because this Drive is amazingly Fast.

Other Thoughts: I have always been pretty happy with OCZ's Quality Hardware.... and occasionally disappointed at the Firmware/Driver issues they have had. But the Pro outweighs the Con. Unless no update comes out soon....
