3 out of 5 eggsGood Drive - Bad CS

Pros: Quiet, fast and stable drive.

Cons: When swapping out my drive, the power SATA connector broke. I am very careful with all of my electonics, but this piece broke.

I contacted customer support, and they said they don't warranty accidental damage. This is somewhat understandable, but did not want to help me in ANY fashion.

This is horrible customer support.

Other Thoughts: I will probably never buy another OCZ product just because of the bad customer support. Be aware!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing the positive comments about Vector! I am very sorry you have had a negative experience with our Technical Support. User inflicted intentional or accidental damage is a limitation of the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty. However, our Support/RMA Team should be very thorough in making this determination including evaluation of visual evidence of the damage. If a part of the SATA connector broke as a result of a defect in materials and workmanship it may still be covered.

I would like the opportunity to investigate this situation. I need to research your support ticket details and gather additional information if this wasn't handled properly the first time. If this has not been handled properly by one of our Support Technicians I can quickly correct that mistake or misunderstanding.

Please contact me at the email address below. Please include your name, ticket number (unless you contacted us via telephone), and a picture of the damaged SATA connector I will investigate and resolve this however possible.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience.

Respectfully,

Robert

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointing

Pros: Very fast till it dies

Cons: Catastrophic failure after 6 mo.

Other Thoughts: Not very happy about having to replace my drive today. I had a few disk errors and figured it was a matter of time before it died. Yep. I've had it too long to get a refund now so I guess I will send it in to be fixed. Checking around on the forums shows that many people have had similar problems. I guess I will be buying a Samsung.

1 out of 5 eggsOk at first then not so OK...

Pros: Fast drive until it stops.

Cons: Works great for the first few weeks, just until the 30 days warranty runs out. Funny how that goes hu!! Constantly goes into CHKDSK when I boot up PC, sometimes is very hacky and slow as if its about to break then I do restart and it goes into CHKDSK. I find this very disappointing especially considering the price. I am seriously considering going back to my old 500 gb seagate hard drive which isn't an SSD but at least I never had these problems with it. I am sure it is only a matter of time until this SSD breaks on me completely.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

CHKDSK errors are usually correctable and can be related to memory stability or specific configuration and/or driver usage. Please contact us so we can help you get this resolved. If we cannot correct the issues and the drive tests unhealthy we will make replacement arrangements in accordance with the warranty terms.

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback.

Sincerely,

2 out of 5 eggsHmmm

Pros: It was fast! And it was a pretty good price too.

Cons: Died after a week. Became corrupt, killed my Windows 7, and when I tried reformatting it, it disappeared completely. No program or OS will recognize it. It's completely dead.

Real bummer.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Dale,

You may also contact us directly and we can evaluate the situation and suggest or arrange the fastest possible resolution for you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value and Performance

Pros: I purchased this ssd to replace the factory hdd in my wife's macbook pro 13" early 2011 model. The refurbished ssd came in a factory sealed box containing a manual, 3.5" adapter with screws, manufacturer's information sheet, and acronis true image cloning software information and license The drive was automatically recognized by the Disk Utility through Mac OS. Using the restore function the clone took around 2 hours. Afterwards, the increase in performance was night and day. A standard startup from power to using the desktop was roughly 34 seconds. After the install of the SSD, the startup time decreased by 14 seconds. Starting up resource intensive programs such as Photoshop and After Effects are nearly instantaneous. I could not be happier with the performance of this drive thus far. I will provide an update if anything changes.

Cons: I have not observed or experienced any cons regarding the purchase of this ssd.

Other Thoughts: I always spend the time to research products based on customer and professional reviews, statistics and benchmark tests. I have taken advantage of many refurbished products that NewEgg offers and I have not been disappointed. If you are looking for a good deal on an ssd and do not mind a recertified product, this OCZ Vector and NewEgg are the way to go.
