4 out of 5 eggsGreat compact drive

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Compact size, can fit into many laptop cases and hard drive enclosures. Price, comparable to other options on the market. Performance is much greater than a traditional HDD. Excellent Customer Support.

Cons: This was a replacement drive for another SSD that I had, covered under warranty. Haven't had any cons, yet. Drive functions well in an external enclosure and is stable under both Mac and Windows.

Other Thoughts: OCZ sent me this drive upon having an issue with another one. There response time was exceptional and kept me up and running through their support.

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth Sailing

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: The transfer rates with these drives are scary good. If you have the fortunate combination of having this with a computer with USB 3.0, you're in store to get insane transfer speeds with your flash drives. You will not be disappointed.

Cons: I can't really think of any cons. The only one I can think of is that there is no 1TB option for the VTX460 family.

Other Thoughts: The packaging is definitely something to behold--the sheet metal bracket ties in nicely with the packaging. You have your styrofoam container with the bracket on one side and the SSD slips in perfectly inside of it but on the other side of the foam. It's well thought out.

4 out of 5 eggsFast, but 3.5 inch adapter is useless

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Getting close to advertised speeds running Windows 7. Includes activation key for Acronis True Image 2013.

Cons: For some reason, OCZ has decided to use smaller screws than standard for the 3.5 inch adapter. I know with my Antec 900 case, the provided screws and adapter will NOT work. Why did you go with a smaller size than standard OCZ? Instead, I had to tape the sides of the adapter to the hard drive cage, not pretty and kind of frustrating. Sorry, but I have to knock off an egg for what looks to be a pretty big miss by OCZ that will cause some people headaches during install.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

Thank you for sharing your feedback! I am glad to read your drive is performing well, but sorry to read the 3.5" adapter bracket did not fit your Antec chassis. The included bracket is designed to fit the majority of systems using the most common unified standard. Because the bracket is designed to fit most environments, I have not previously fielded compatibility complaints about the bracket form factor. I appreciate this feedback and will pass this incompatibility information along to our internal design teams so it can be reviewed.

Thank you very much for your purchase.

Best Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Drive.

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: I am so pleased with this drives performance. Combined with a new Z-97 chip set it's nice and fast. Computer boots to windows desktop in a few seconds. Internet page loads are instant, and games and levels also load equally snappy. So I'm happy. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fast SSD. I just cannot see you going wrong with this purchase.

Cons: No cons. It does everything OCZ claims.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA.

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: No Pros as item was DOA.

Cons: I ordered OCZ Vertex 460 SATA III Solid State Drive 240GB drive several months ago for a new computer build. I finally got all the parts and I put everything together over the weekend. Unfortunately the drive does not appear in bios in the new machine. I swapped power cable and sata cable and attempted again on the same machine. The drive still did not show up in bios so I removed the drive and attempted to use as a secondary drive in another machine. The drive did not appear in bios or in the OS of the second machine so I can only assume the drive is DOA.

This is the first OCZ SSD I have purchased and I am pretty disappointed with the results so far. While I hope this is a one time occurrence, I cannot recommend OCZ.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

I am very sorry to read this. This is the first report I have read of a Vertex 460 arriving DOA from Newegg. If the drive is damaged, it likely occurred in shipping as every drive is tested before being shipped. Please contact us and we will attempt to resolve this remotely; if we cannot resolve this remotely we can arrange for a quick replacement.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,

OCZ Storage Solutions Support

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: One of the best SSD's available and at a great price point, PC or Mac

Clearly a great choice for Macs with SATA 3

New release

SSD's are at a price that I am not sure it makes sense to buy a HDD below 2TB. Speeds of SSDs in SATA 3 are so much faster than HDDs that it's hardly worth comparing

Comes with a nice 3.5" SSD adapter for desktops, which is $4-5 minimum, and a license for the full Acronis 2013 True Image HD software. These make this SSD an especially great buy.

Cons: None, except that the software does not match Samsung's Magician, which is PC only

Other Thoughts: A rewrite of my review, with specific numbers. On my Mac, I have two of these drives in RAID1, which combines these two drives into a volume of 446.5GB and uses striping to essentially double the speed. A RAID set is extremely easy to set up in Mac OS X using Disk Utility. By replacing the optical drive, you can place a second SSD in a MacBook Pro or a Mac Mini to make a RAID set. If you have a Thunderbolt port you could put the RAID array external to your Mac with similar speed. The QuickBench 4.0 Extended Test, 20-100MB transfer size, gives an average of 1019 MB/Sec Read Speed and 1000 MB/Sec Write Speed.

The reason I suggest -- if you have a PC using Windows and want to have one SSD run at maximum speed -- that you consider a Samsung 840 Pro or Evo is because of Samsung's Magician software with its "RAPID Mode" that greatly increases the speed of the SSD. My system is Win 7 Pro, 4770K i7, 32 GB RAM and I get these numbers using RAPID Mode with my 840 Pro 256GB (I have the Jpegs but can't post them): CrystalDiskMark 3.0.2 x64, (5 runs, 1000MB) --Seq Read 8091 MB/s, Write 5675 MB/s; 512K Read 7740 MB/s, Write 5433 MB/s; 4K Read 748.8 MB/s, Write 508.2 MB/s; 4K QD32 Read 742.7 MB/s, Write 505.4 MB/s. Moreover, using the Magician Performance Testing, I get these numbers: Sequential Read 6212 MB/s with 158,837 IOPS Random Read, and Sequential Write 5486 MB/s with 106,885 IOPS Random Write. The OCZ Vertex 460 is undoubtably one of the best SSDs currently available, so consider your needs.

5 out of 5 eggsOCZ is on track

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: + Excellent performance, especially with incompressible data
+ High quality construction: metal chassis (NOT plastic)
+ Bundled with Acronis
+ Because OCZ is now owned by Toshiba, OCZ SSDs are 100% vertically integrated just like Samsung. That means all components are designed and manufactured in-house.

Cons: - Lacks any management software like Samsung's Magician

Other Thoughts: This SSD is installed on a Gigabyte 970A-UD3P motherboard on the SATA 3 (6Gb/s) port. I ran CrystalDiskMark v3.0.1 X64 with the following results:

Read [MB/s] - Write [MB/s]
Seq: 402.4 - 406.2
512K: 317.4 - 357.7
4K: 9.227 - 12.68
4K QD32: 308.3 - 257.1

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Trusted brand, quality manufacturing. I have an OCZ ssd in my laptop, OCZ memory and now an OCZ ssd in my desktop. Two of those three have been running flawlessly for years.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I was one click away from buying the Corsair LX series but noticed how cheap and powerful this drive was. This was a good steal for 139.99. IMPORTANT: COMES WITH A SOLID DESKTOP ADAPTER, I did not go with some of the other brands because you have to buy them separately.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: *Quality
*Speed
*Warranty

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have two set up as an internal RAID 1 set running under OSX 10.9.4. The speed both reading and writing is about 1000MB/sec. The RAID set backs up as one drive when cloned. I would say that if you are using Windows 7 or above and want only one SSD as your main drive, then buy a Samsung 840 Pro or Evo, because Samsung has the best SSD software by far, but it's only for PC, not Mac. The Samsung software also has RAPID Mode which uses RAM cache to accelerate ONE SSD only to unbelievable speeds (like 5-6G/second, really, at least with my 32GB RAM). But stupidly they don't have Mac software (though you can use any Samsung SSD without it, but no RAPID Mode). That makes this one great choice for a Mac.

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive the second time

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Fast, cheap, good customer service from OCZ (had to RMA first one)

Cons: Drive became unresponsive while restoring image during initial transfer. OCZ RMA process was fast and easy, replacement drive is fine.

Other Thoughts: Although the initial drive failed I still give it 4 stars because once I got the new drive and set it up it's fast, and it was relatively cheap. RMA process was as painless as it could be, turnaround in 4 days.
