4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to My Previous Review

Pros: Excellent RMA service.

Cons: Disk failure is a big problem.

Other Thoughts: This RMA was a bit unusual. The original product was a refurbished drive bought through Newegg. There was no warranty information on the website, though there was a very small notice saying normal warranty would not apply (which I didn't notice until I had a problem). In fact, OCZ said the refurb warranty was only six months, instead of the new warranty of five years. My drive failed after seven and a half months. I was first told "Too Bad" by OCZ. I complained, and after escalation the drive was replaced. I didn't get the same drive as a replacement.-- the original was a Vector and the replacement is a Vertex. Since the specs are not that different, I accept this. I have bought many OCZ products and always liked the company and its products. This is only the second time I've had a problem and I appreciate that OCZ ultimately did handle the problem in a way that I consider fair. As a result I raised my rating to four eggs instead of two. I would go higher because of the excellent RMA service, but replacing a failed drive is a really big problem unless there is a very, very recent backup of all that was lost on the failed drive.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat While It Lasted

Pros: Very fast, easy installation, no problems at first.

Cons: Died suddenly and completely in eight months.

Other Thoughts: I have bought more than a dozen OCZ products of various types, and have never had a failure, until now. This unit was sold as refurbished, so maybe that wasn't a good risk. It died suddenly after eight months. No warning, no partial access, just dead. The BIOS couldn't even boot with it connected. I don't know if this review will help anyone because I think the unit is no longer being sold.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great until it died

Windows performance rating 7.2 for data transfer
Easy to install and transfer O/S

Cons: It died three months in, starting with some random disk checks initiated by windows, then driver failures finally BSOD

Other Thoughts: Hey, it's refurbished... but most times refurbished only means "checked over twice and given an A-Okay"
this time (and with my luck) it meant "C rap tastic frustrating loss of time and data"
Still within the 180 Manufacturer's Warranty, Wish me luck with the RMA.
I'll let ya know how that goes.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Drive - 1st Impression

Pros: Speed. Throughput. Construction. Best performing drive I have so far.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is literally a NEW drive. (Just needed to upgrade the firmware before use.) Toshiba apparently relabeled the unsold Vectors with the introduction of the Vector 150 to clear out the old stock. (Same with the 2 OCZ refurbished Vertex 450s recently bought.) My 5th refurbished OCZ SSD and all still functioning very well. Unclear why some people have so many issues with this robust drive from the reviews read.

1 out of 5 eggsFast but unreliable

Pros: Boots Windows 7 64-bit faster than 2 1TB WD Black drives in RAID0, but loses data-see cons

Cons: This drive kept either losing my data or freezing every 20 minutes and then kept going, but with the loss of data. I had a music folder that would get deleted every time I started Windows, and the drive acted like it did not want to save any new. Things would go missing, or revert back to an old file. I finally had to send it back after it deleted my schoolwork folder that I luckily saved a copy of on my WD RAID0 black drives.

Other Thoughts: I will probably try Samsung this time, since they have such a good review lineup.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

What you have experienced is very unusual behavior. It is difficult to remotely determine if this is drive related of memory related. I recommend you create a support ticket using the link below. We will assess the drive's health and if necessary arrange to get this drive back to be tested and replaced in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty. Hopefully we can quickly correct the issue with some simple analysis and troubleshooting!

I am confident we can resolve this issue.

Kind Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support
