1 out of 5 eggsVery Experienced with these drives - Don't buy them

Pros: Very fast

Cons: High-risk of failure

Other Thoughts: We have installed over 100 of these drives. We had several fail within a few day. After about 7 months, in a matter of 2 days, we have had 3 failures. That's nearly a 10% failure rate in less than a year.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

In late 2013 the Vertex 450 received a firmware update that may address some of the unusual issues you have experienced. The update is simple to perform: All you need to do is download our OCZ Toolbox, select the target drive, click update, then power off your system. The OCZ Toolbox download is available at our website along with a full guide. The OCZ Toolbox is available in a Windows and Linux version and we also offer a bootable version for PCs and Macs.

If you have any questions about updating your remaining drives or require a RMA for a problem drive please contact us. We will assist you however we can.

Best Regards,

3 out of 5 eggsFollow Up Review From 3/14/14

Pros: Have used OCZ brand SSDs for a few years now and the speed is always Great!

Cons: The first one died in a little over a month.
First OCZ SSD I had ever had problems with though.

Other Thoughts: I have been using the refurbished one they sent me since 3/20/14. Working great, (no problems, great speed) but if you want one of these, go look at the Vertex 460, I purchased one of those today and will write a review on it after a month or 3 of use. This SSD will be moving to my HTPC and used as my OS drive.

1 out of 5 eggsCrash And Burn 2 yr Drive

Pros: Lasted 2 years on a computer I only booted up once a month

Cons: What can I say? When I finally decided to use the drive more than once a month it failed and no longer was recognized in bios.

Other Thoughts: I tested on another computer and same thing; not recognized.

THIS SUCKS!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am sorry you have experienced issues with a product. Your review may be misplaced, as the Vertex 450 has not been available for 2 years and your feedback does not contain a "verified owner" tag indicating this specific product has been purchased with your Newegg account.

Please contact us using the link below. We will help determine the model of your product and will assist any way possible.

Best Regards,

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

Pros: Good drive when it works

Cons: Have 2 of the 128gb models in raid0, throughout my time with them I've gone through 4 RMA's that's twice each and am now on my 5th and 6th drive. Fingers crossed....

Other Thoughts: I don't usually review however when OCZ will just resend you the same drives that they know are crashing over and over again a review is needed. If they really cared they would replace the drives with something they know work..

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am very sorry to read you have continually experienced issues with your system and the Vertex 450 drives. If you encounter any issue in the future please contact me directly and I will evaluate and resolve this immediately. You can contact me using the email address below at any time. When contacting me please include your full name, phone number, and any previous RMA numbers (will begin EU######) you have been issued.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 3 months

Pros: No "Pros" when the drive is dead.

Cons: The drive is dead

Other Thoughts: Don't be stupid like me and waste your money on this drive.
I purchased the OCZ Vertex for a customer of mine. The drive worked well for about 3 months then died. The Dell T5400 would not see it anymore. I put the drive in a StarTech SATDOCK22RE Hard Drive Duplicator Dock (which I love). It does not see the drive. I contacted OCZ customer support. I was told to update my bios and not to use the StarTech dock. But after a few more emails OCZ gave an RMA #. The turn around was very fast. OCZ sent back my original drive with a note stating "No fault found". So now I have a drive that 4 computers will not see. I understand that everything can break but OCZ's customers support is useless.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I have located your RMA number and testing results and see the drive detected fine and passed all tests when received. It is important to us that your Vertex 450 delivers the performance, productivity, reliability, and energy efficiency promised. Usually in cases like this the host system just needs to be reset or cables swapped. If you continue to experience issues you can still contact us and we will help determine the problem with your system. Knowing the drive has passed all tests through our RMA process will help narrow down the potential causes.

Please contact us again using the link below and we will gladly assist further! Please also reference your previous RMA number when contacting us.

Best Regards,

1 out of 5 eggsFail Fail Fail

Pros: 0

Cons: I have 3 of this disks, two of the bought in pair in USA and installed in two computers, now disk died the first day, the second lasted few hours in total max 12 hours of use. I got the third disk from a website and this 3rd disk lasted maybe for 12 hours also, so I can not recommend this since this seems to be total waste of money buying this junk.

1 out of 5 eggsthis drive is garbage

Pros: Drive is really fast when it works.

Cons: We are now on our third RMA because every three months these drives fail. Seeing all of the other reviews on here they ALL say the same thing. OCZ paved the way in solid state drives and usually produce top quality products. to say i"m disappointed in these drives is an understatement. the only reason they got a star was because there's not a zero star option.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am very sorry you have had a negative experience with the Vertex 450. We are aware of the 16 negative experiences reported here and we have/will work to resolve each case. Please note this is an incredibly small sample and not indicative of overall drive reliability. Using the information in your review I attempted to locate your RMA(s) and could not find one under your first or last name. It is important to us that all negative experiences are fully resolved in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty and I will gladly work out a resolution for you.

Please contact me directly using the email address below. To expedite a resolution please provide the following information:

Name (and name RMA might be filed under if different)
RMA and/or ticket number(s)
contact phone number

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards,

Robert
