5 out of 5 eggsResolved and Satisfied

Pros: None, see other

Cons: This drive IS NOT the OCZ drive you are looking for.

Other Thoughts: Robert from OCZ customer service contacted me after my last review. Emails went back and forth, and to cut to the chase they sent me another drive, not the Agility 4. Do NOT buy this drive. I highly recommend you purchase one of OCZ's more quality brands like a Vertex or Vortex series.

I am happy that OCZ (Robert) was able to satisfy my over all anger towards the company and he was understanding regarding the lack of customer service I received. So, thank you Robert, you saved a customer. I hope everyone who takes the time to read this understands that I HIGHLY recommend you purchase another drive and not this particular one. Cheers.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst unit defective

Pros: While drive is working, its very fast. This particular drive gets hot and then quits and can not even be seen in bios until drive cools down. RMA in process. Testing should be more stringent. I have two other SSD drives that work great and they are OCZ Agility 3 drives but smaller size.

Cons: This particular drive won't run for more than about an hour at best.

Other Thoughts: Really think there should be stress tests run on these recertified drives.

1 out of 5 eggsOCZ = stay away

Pros: None, see other.

Cons: 3 days owned and it died.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd review. This is the most horrible service I've ever recieved from a company. RMA: EU321469

I sent in my RMA to OCZ, I spent 25$ on packaging and shipping because if you do not package it the way they want you to, they will send your drive back. So now I am up to 145$ spent on this drive. It's been sitting in the RMA department for 2 full business weeks and nothing has been done. I've called the RMA department and it always goes to a voicemail. No one ever calls me back. I've left my name, RMA number, phone number and the reason I am calling every time I called. I called their technical support department to see if I can get any help with the RMA department, their response: Let me connect you, click, transferred.

Everyone, please understand this is something you don't want to go through. Save yourself time and money and do not buy OCZ. I wish I could just get my money back and never look back, but I can't and I have to keep up the difficult job of dealing with this company who obviously has NO care for any customer. Any reply from OCZ to this post is not going to satisfy me unless they mail me a check for my money lost. So, OCZ stop responding to my posts and saying "Sorry for the problems, please contact us" because I've tried and get nothing in return.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am very sorry to read of the delay in receiving your RMA replacement. The RMA process itself has been delayed recently during the company transition and formation of OCZ Storage Solutions - A Toshiba Group Company. Normal RMA operation has resumed and your replacement should arrive any day. I have contacted the RMA Team and verified your RMA was received, an order has been created, and is processed for shipping late last week.

I have reviewed your support ticket communication; that communication appears timely and appropriate. Your attempts at phone communication seem more troubling. While calling and speaking with someone will not expedite the process in these unique circumstances, you deserve to be able to speak with someone for an update and explanation. I will bring this to the Technical Support team's attention and apologize on their behalf.

I am happy to serve as your single point of contact until you receive your replacement. You can contact me anytime using the email address below.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience and delays you have experienced.

Kind Regards,

Robert

1 out of 5 eggsPoor quality, no support

Pros: Fast while operational

Cons: Went from 0 to 378 bad sectors in 1 day with a lot of lost data. OCZ support said re-flash the firmware and if it works after that I'm stuck with the drive. I reflashed the drive and the bad sector count stopped going up. Would you trust this drive as your OS drive after this? OCZ support said live with it.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I will gladly investigate this situation and see to it you receive a RMA if your refurbished Agility 4 is malfunctioning. If the drive has 378 retired blocks accumulated in a single day and is losing data the drive has an issue and needs to be replaced. Please contact me using the email address below. In your communication please include your ticket number, first and last name, and contact phone number.

I look forward to speaking with you and resolving this experience.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards,

Robert

1 out of 5 eggsOCZ is the 50% brand

Pros: None

Cons: 2nd OCZ I purchased, and within 1 to 3 days it fails. I understand I bought a refurbished, but that has nothing to do with it. Factory refurbished means it's been tested by the company, they recertify it, stamp a Warranty on it and ship it out like new.

This one failed on me on the 3rd day. I didn't even get around to putting data on it. Unfortunately I can't get my money back, but I do have an RMA setup with OCZ. I am not claiming OCZs support is bad, but every drive I've got from them, is plain terrible.

Other Thoughts: A friend of mine has 2 OCZ drives. 1 failed, he RMA'd and got another. So far his 2 are still going, but according to what I've read, they are about 50/50 on whether they are going to work or not. I certainly hope for your sake it works because I've had terrible experiences with them.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear MP,

I am sorry to read of your problems with the refurbished Agility 4. I am a bit confused by your review; you note the drive failed on the 3rd day but also never put any data on it. In this case you may be suggesting the drive was not detected at all by your system? Did you make sure to initialize the drive in Disk Management or Disk Utility? Either way, it appears we are already arranging or have issued a RMA. As part of the RMA process the drive will be tested and if necessary replaced. We work to make the RMA process as quick as possible and I am confident it will end with a positive result.

I am very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 3 days

Pros: Works for 3 days and ran AS SSD twice.

Cons: I had yet to put ANY data on the drive itself, just because it wasn't needed. This is the second OCZ that I've ordered from Newegg and it died on me in the first week. The first OCZ SSD was a brand new one, not refurbished.

Other Thoughts: I think I am going to contact OCZ about this directly. Buyer beware. Newegg will NOT refund you, even if it's a day later. Their policy states they will only replace. If they would give me my money back, i would just ship it to them and be done with it. This does NOT mean I don't like Newegg, I am just warning everyone. I do not like giving bad reviews.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat results and speed

Pros: Speed is awesome. I just got it, so no initial issues and hopefully none to come.

See Other Thoughts

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: AS SSD results:
Squ Read/Write: 243/381 MB per second
4k Read/Write: 16/95 MB per second
4k 64thrd Read/Write: 244/224 MB per second
Overall score is exactly 800.

My Adata S501 and Kingston HyperX both have traits that out perform the OCZ but over all, the OCZ is WAY faster. Of course over time it becomes slower and a clean wipe will fix that when it occurs. I hope this helps. Cheers!

P.S. I bought this refurbished for 119.99$. The price per GB was just under 50 cents a GB. So, imo well worth it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked great right out of the box, easily 34 times the speed of the original laptop drive. Windows 7 completely loads unless than a minute, everything else seems to have been accelerated such as movies, photos, etc.

Cons: only problem I had with cloning the original drive, to SSD was not recognized on my USB adapter. Simply solved by installing the drive and booting off the original drive using USB adapter.

3 out of 5 eggsDied after 11 months

Pros: Was absolutely great for the 11 months that I used it. Will never go back to using a mechanical drive as my main OS drive.
Got it at a great price at the time

Cons: Was playing BF4 and all of a sudden my computer froze. Initially thought it was just BF4 being buggy as usual. After rebooting, I noticed that the drive was no longer being detected :(

Other Thoughts: Reason I'm giving 3 stars vs 1 is because OCZ took care of me and sent me a Vertex 4 as a replacement (we'll see how long the Vertex 4 lasts)
