2 out of 5 eggsOCZ 150 480 g

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good read/write speed Very Fast, large capacity

Cons: I am having similar issues to the other review I read here. My system will work fine then I shut it down and when I restart the drive will fail.This is my second one first one totally died so I RMA'd it now the replacement has died. I have had to use the OCZ toolbox a couple of times to erase the drive that is the only way I can get it to work again and now it died completely. This is my Windows drive so this is a huge inconvenience as I have to reload everything!I have a 120g PNY I have to keep going back to and never have any issues with it. So far I very disappointed with the reliability of the OCZ SSD Drive. Now I will have to RMA again and spend another $30.00 to ship it to OCZ.

Other Thoughts: I have had several brands of SSD drives and so far the OCZ has been the most unreliable and the biggest headache. The OCZ warranty is good no problems but if I have to keep paying $30.00 for shipping to get it repaired and have the headache of RMA all the time not sure its worth it.

Manufacturer Response:

If you contact me directly I can attempt to correct the problem remotely. If I cannot correct the issue I will make RMA arrangements to test and, if necessary, replace the drive in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty. I can even provide a prepaid return shipping label because of your previous history.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Drive

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast little drive that I got for a great price. I haven't had any issues with this drive or any of the other OCZ drives I own. SSD Life estimates it should last me another 8 years with out issue.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Great looking little drive, too bad it's hidden in my case. :)

1 out of 5 eggsMajor Headaches

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Inexpensive for it's size at the time it was purchased. Supposed high durability NAND which is how it gets a 5 year warranty.

Cons: Constant issues with these. Horrible reliability. I have rma'd 3 out of 5 in less than 1 year. I have 5 of the 480GB model and I cannot get them to work consistently. Every drive gradually reduces in performance over the course of a couple months then the read speeds become so slow that the drive is basically a brick, which can result in data loss. The only way to fix is to boot into the OCZ toolbox and secure erase them, after which the cycle repeats. Occasionally they can't be secure erased and have to be RMA'd.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy OCZ again. I don't care if Toshiba owns them now. The Vertex II series was gold, but every version since has been constant problems.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Rebecca C.,

I am very sorry to read of the issues you have experienced with the Vector 150. This is very strange behavior I have not encountered before and it is even stranger that it has occurred with so many drives. I would like to help you with this - it is possible I can pinpoint the issue and secure a resolution. Please contact me using the email address below. If you can provide your previous RMA numbers it will help me investigate your history to avoid any redundancy.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the negative experience you have had.

Kind Regards,

Robert

5 out of 5 eggsOCZ Vector 150 480GB SSD

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Performance
5 Year Warranty
3.5" adapter included
Acronis included

Cons: No SATA cable included.
Toolbox Software very basic

Other Thoughts: This SSD is good performer. Even with the drive well over half full and installed as the OS drive I consistently get the following very respectable performance: Windows 8.1 BIOS Boot time is 9.6 seconds. 540MB Sequential Read 522MB Sequential Write 96423 IOPS Random Read 90407 IOPS Random Write The drive comes bundled with the 3.5 inch adapter bracket and screws as well as branded tier-1 cloning software you can download directly from the vendor website. It does not come with a SATA cable, though. Overall a very good value and hopefully I don't have to test out the 5 year warranty. You can download utility software 'toolbox' from the vendor website, which provides basic drive info and stats, but some competitor's software is much nicer, but not required to run the drive. With the bracket, Acronis 2013 cloning software and warranty, it's definitely and great value of features, size, speed, and cost... if you get it for a good price. Would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsOCZ Vector 150 480

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast and a lot of room - now we can get 480 Gig for what I payed for 120 gig way back and for 256 just not long ago --- I like the Rated for 50GB/day of host writes for 5 years under typical client workloads - this should last a log time -- and it's a MLCell config and not a TLCell which in it self it will make it last last a lot longer -- with over improvisation it will make the cells last longer - it shows 2.3 meg hour MTBF

Cons: it does draw a little more power so it may not be the best for a laptop

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelieveable

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is one heck of an SSD, I bought mine on a different website , I never thought that Newegg could match the price but I was wrong, Take advantage of a great SSD at a great price. Plus a 5 year warrantee.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsI'm definitely happy.

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast out of the box after cloning my Vertex 4 with very good improvement that verifies my need for an upgrade from the Vertex 4. AS SSD Bench overall score of 867 for the Vector 150 vs a score of 636 for my initial install score of the Vertex 4. I'm happy. :) Plus, I needed the extra storage, so got this Vector 150 480GB. I should be good for a couple years at least.

Cons: Hope it lasts. Never know. But from what I read the Vector 150 has a much longer working life than the Vector.
