Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

1 out of 5 eggsSAVE YOUR MONEY

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap, you get what you pay for. I purchased 2 of these and to run in Mirror Raid configuration. I figured they would not both go down. WRONG, I RMA them both over and over until the warranty said TOUGH LUCK. These things will not last so save your money and purchase a Samsung or something else that will last.

Other Thoughts: PS Love the new slogan gaming should last or something. To bad your computer components do not.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am very sorry to read you experienced issues with your refurbished Vertex 2 drives. OCZ does thoroughly test each refurbished/recertified unit and it is very unusual for a problem to manifest after months of use or in this case outside of the 180-day warranty. Normally these refurbished products offer incredible value and performance without a compromise in reliability.

OCZ Storage Solutions does offer many products with both 3 and 5-year warranty periods. I hope you can give us another chance and can enjoy the long term performance and reliability a drive like the Vector 150 or Vertex 460 offer.

Best Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -ssd is much better than any disk hard drive for booting an OS
-OCZ has a great warranty service

Cons: -it was DOA and I did not know it until I finally built the computer I intended to use it in 5 months after purchase.
-warranty is only 6 months on refurbs.

Other Thoughts: This is the third OCZ SSD I have purchased. I bought this to use in a cheap computer build I was doing but it was DOA. I was lucky since newegg saves all your invoices so I was able to produce one for the RMA just in the knick of time since these drives only have 6 month warranties. Sent it in and a week later they sent me a 2.5inch 160gb vertex 2. So the shipping cost and hassle was well worth the upgrade. When looking at low end SSDs OCZ is a great way to go. I sold my older macbook with a vertex 2 in it to a friend and he still uses that laptop everyday even 2 years later. I currently have OCZ drives in all my computers except my main rig and a macbook pro that you cannot replace the hard drive in.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 9 months

Pros: Fast when worked. No frills drive

Cons: red "panic mode" light on after 9 months of use. Tech support totally incompetent, but will respond withing 30 minutes to tell you you are out of warranty!! 6 month warranty is too short

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am very sorry to read your refurbished Vertex 2 developed an issue after 9 months of use. What you have been told by our tech support is correct - if we are unable to recover the drive remotely (we often can) the refurbished Vertex 2 does carry a 180 day warranty. If the warranty period has expired we cannot resolve the situation with a warranty replacement. The tech who helped you should have offered technical support, regardless of whether the product is eligible for a RMA. If this did not happen please contact us again.

Having to file a warranty claim is rare. If your next purchase has the requirement of a longer warranty, I recommend purchasing a new Vector 150 (5-year warranty period) or Vertex 460 (3-year warranty period). Full OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty terms can be read using the link below.

Thank you very much for your puchase and I apologize for the sudden issues.

Sincerely,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Fast drive, simple, cheap

Cons: failed after 1 year. Clean install of win 8 and this drive was sooo fast, then after waking up from sleep, the red "panic" light lit up on the drive. Its back to OCZ for a RMA. many hours wasted.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast drive, never made any noise. Slim design and never got hot.

Cons: Drive lasted 9 months before the MBR got wiped. Now it's a paperweight.

Other Thoughts: Decent drive for the price, however i will not buy again due to the limited warranty and the drive not even lasting a full year. Don't use this drive for your important data!
