1 out of 5 eggsFailed within a few months

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

Pros: When it was working it was pretty fast and it is extremely good looking.

Cons: failed for no reason, lost my data as I had no back up yet. Fool me for trusting that SSD's will last....

Other Thoughts: i bought this on black friday 2014 for a really good price, i guess that is why the price was so low. didnt even last me a year.

My real problem is that i live in south america and i bought this in the us, it was brought to me. so im not sure what is the RMA process gonna be like if the company actually stands behind this.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Fernando,

OCZ will defintiely stand behind the product. It is very possible we can resolve this through a firmware update with no warranty claim/RMA necessary. If we cannot quickly correct the issue we will gladly make arrangements to have the drive tested and replaced in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty. It is important to us that you have a great experience with the Vertex 460 and we will work to make that a reality.

1 out of 5 eggsWORSE SSD EVER OWNED AND WORST SERVICE

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

Pros: Was fairly fast booting when I first received. Neat packaging. Decent price but I guess you get what you pay for.

Cons: Acronis software licenses did not work. I owned the drive for about 4 months and then the computer started rebooting with blue screens randomly. Every time I checked the memory dumps nothing in windows caused the failures. Finally one day the computer wont read the ssd card in BIOS. Hooked it up to another computer via external enclosure and still it will not work. The drive looks usable until you go to access data and then wham, it stops again. I have tried calling their customer service department 6 times regarding the issue and once I was hung up on immediately, the other 5 they never answer the phone. This is the worst customer service that I have ever received from any company and owning my own computer repair company, I will NEVER recommend OCZ to anyone ever again. I would rather pay more for a company that stands behind their product than a fair price to a company that will not do the same.

Other Thoughts: Replaced with an Intel 530 series. It was about $40 more expensive, but its faster than my OCZ ever was and I have customer service that will stand behind the product if there is an issue. I will be replacing ALL my OCZ products with Intel or Samsung and will be doing the same for all my clients.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Daniel F.,

I am very sorry to read about your product issue and difficulty reaching our phone support. We do offer multiple methods of contact for situations where one method is busy or not working. We offer Live Chat, Phone Support, and 24-hour email/case support. We will definitely stand behind the product.

On behalf of OCZ Storage Solutions, I am very sorry about this negative experience.

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

Pros: FAST
Stable
Excellent Value

Cons: Didn't have the winning Powerball numbers already saved. In reality, can't think of anything after 6 months of use.

Other Thoughts: Ordered this after MANY hours of research and have been very pleased with it! No problems, weird issues to report, it was plug & play with my setup!

5 out of 5 eggsfollow-up review

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

Pros: Very fast drive
Very reliable (owned for 6 months never had any issue)
Excellent transfer rate
Even better access time

Cons: Nothing now.

Other Thoughts: I was a knuckle head and gave this drive 2 stars in my previous reviews because I used it on a 3 GB/s interface, duh!@!! Now in the MSI PC Mate mobo this little gem flies. What set this drive apart from a 6 GB/s HDD is the access time. When Windows starts, restart, launching games, data has to be accessed all over the place. This is where SSD shines over HDD. Get one now!

2 out of 5 eggsFirmware update to 1.03

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

Pros: Great drive with the 1.0 firmware

Cons: After installing important firmware version 1.03 my drive lost write numbers by 20% and read numbers were OK but occasional drop of30%.Prior to the firmware update the drive was solid.DO NOT UPDATE THE FIRMWARE!!!

Other Thoughts: I have worked with the OCZ support supplied them with data. I think they should send me a drive without an RMA process due to the time I have spent on this diagnostics.

Manufacturer Response:

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

Pros: Price, bought on sale @ 50% off.
Good reviews on Newegg.
Quiet, not a peep.
Small size, great for mounting outside of a drive bay.

Other Thoughts: Bought this SSD BECAUSE of all the good reviews here on Newegg.
This is my first SSD.
I also bought a IDE SSD for my old Thinkpad T40.

I will never use a spinning drive for my system drive again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, no problems

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

Pros: Boots fast, programs start up fast, games have minimal load screens. Copy software allowed me to set this up as my boot drive with no hassle.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I happily await solid state drives becoming affordable enough that I can replace all of my old disk drives with them. I used to think they were just a nice convenience, but the performance differences I've noticed since putting this in my machine have me sold.

2 out of 5 eggsSkip this one

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

Pros: It works good when it works

Cons: Drive locks up. How does a SSD lock up? Sometimes 2 times a day other times once a week. Death, taxes and this drive will lock up. You must power cycle the computer to clear the lock. Can't find any software updates on website.

Other Thoughts: This is my 4th SSD no problems with any of the others. Going back to the Samsung EVO and toss this one.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Christopher P.,

We will gladly help you with this issue! Crashes and freezes are usually related to system instability, most likely related to system memory. Though less likely, it is also possible the drive has developed an issue. Our Technical Support can help you make that determination. If we cannot quickly correct the issue we will gladly make arrangements to have the drive tested and replaced in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty. It is important to us that you have a great experience with the Vertex 460 and we will work to make that a reality.
