1 out of 5 eggsslow drives and horrible customer service

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

Pros: cheap

Cons: slower sequential benchmarks than my HDD.
Dealing with OCZ techsupport is excruciatingly painful. I have a gigabyte MOBO with SATA3 ports. Its a 4 year old board, but it definately supports SATA 3 6 Gbps. Placing 2 of the vertex 460 drives in a RAID 0 configuration, produced results that far less than what they should be. 110 on sequential read/write and 16 on random read/write. Sequential should have easily been 500, 600 or higher.

Trying to get assistance from OCZ has been slow and painful, and far less than helpful, so far.

Other Thoughts: I really want these drives to work, I got a really good black friday price on them, but I have a tough time swallowing that their sequential times are 50% slower than my old 7200 RPM HDD.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear John,

I am sorry you have had a difficult experience with the Vertex 460 and our technical support. I would be happy to assist you with this. A single Vertex 460, regardless of chipset, should have sequential read/write much higher than 110MB/s under any circumstance. Even if your motherboard has a limited add-on SATA 6Gb/s controller if should perform much faster than 110MB/s when sequential write is tested.

Please contact me directly about this using the email address below. In your correspondance please include your ticket number so I can gather your system details and history; that will help me expedite a resolution.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the difficulty.

Kind Regards,

Robert

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

Pros: Very solid SSD for the money. I bought this as my new primary Boot drive so I could do a fresh install and turn my HDD into a data disk. As with any modern disk drive, installation is a breeze. Now with the fresh install my boot time is about 10 seconds versus 35 with the HDD. As long as the sale prices are on this makes a very good option for price v. performance.

Cons: The Acronis software is a nice thought, but didn't want to work for migrating the OS. As I was planning a fresh install, this didn't matter to me, but I want to ensure that anyone considering this drive doesn't rely on this software as part of their purchase decision.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Drive, beat my expectations.

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

Pros: Works as advertised. Extremely fast. Comes with 3.5" adapter. Comes with an older version of Acronis True Image for migrating to the new drive.

Cons: I got a fantastic deal on black Friday but, had I paid full price I would have to list that as the only con so far. By far not the cheapest drive but, then again it's not the most expensive either.

Other Thoughts: I've only had the drive a short time but, the time that I have had it it's been flawless. I honestly wasn't expecting much since my setup before was using a 32Gb SSD as a cache drive via Intel's Smart Response Technology which is in itself a huge improvement over a stand alone 7200 RPM mechanical drive. I was really blown away by how much of a performance increase can be realized with just an SSD drive, even over a hybrid-ish setup. Best bang for the buck upgrade you can do since a mechanical hard drive is usually the bottle neck on most current systems.

If my feelings change or I run into problems in the future then I will come and revise my review accordingly.

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

Pros: Nice looking case, feels solid

Cons: The ssd came last for my pc build. Just imagine ive put up every parts for the pc and managed to boot up successfully. While installing the bios, suddenly the ssd was cut off halfway. I tried checking the connections and did few alterations, it got detected somehow but after few minutes the ssd was gone again in my boot up. I did try test it up with my friend's functional pc and the same problem persists. I got fed up after trying 10 times repairing and booting and repairing back again. I'm going to refund this defected piece of metal and buy a samsung or crucial.

Other Thoughts: I thought my motherboard went bad and the provided sata III wire was defected. But after testing with another pc, the problem still exist. Clearly it's OCZ.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Hariz,

I am very sorry to read of the difficulty you experienced installing your new Vertex 460 SSD. Having built many systems in my life I definitely understand and appreciate the frustration experienced when one of the new components isn't cooperating. Installation of the Vertex 460 is usually as simple as connecting a power and data cable. If you still have the drive and wish to troubleshoot the issue I am happy to help. If not, I understand wish you the best of luck in the future. If you wish to troubleshoot or discuss this further you may contact me anytime using the email address below.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,

Robert

3 out of 5 eggsnot the best

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

Pros: It's SSD
faster then standard 7200 rpm HD

Cons: not much faster then my 7200 rpm HD
scored only 7.7 in Win7 Windows Experience Index

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I may be able to assist you with this or at least provide some additional information. While the WEI score is not a reliable indicator of performance, I should be able to help the drive score a 7.9 assuming the host system includes a native SATA 6Gb/s controller. If SATA 3Gb/s, the 7.7 sub-score may be the maximum possible. The drive should also be considerably faster than a standard 7200RPM SSD in all areas, especially file access time.

If you would like to investigate this further you may contact me using the email address below. I am happy to gather information and see if I can improve your experience!

Thank you for sharing your feedback with the Newegg community.

Kind Regards,
