1 out of 5 eggsClass Action Suit?

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: - Very Fast

Cons: - Apparently built using scrapped parts since the failure rate seems to be very high.

- The stupid sticker that comes with it.

Other Thoughts: You've read this story before, bought it on Black Friday and died after 2 months. This has to be a defective batch, and I'm pretty sure OCZ/Toshiba is aware of the problem.

I have another OCZ SSD (bought years ago) which is running fine. After the Toshiba purchase I thought this drive would be super reliable since Toshiba manufactures its own flash, well, how was I wrong.

I haven't received my replacement yet but so far didn't have issues dealing with OCZ for the warranty.

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: none

Cons: Purchased on black Friday and on March 20th it crashed for the final time. I would not recommend this product to anyone. There are plenty of other drives that will provide better longevity. This was a case of you get what you paid for or perhaps you get much less than you paid for.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Paul C.,

I am sorry to read of the sudden issues with your Vertex 460. The Vertex 460 should definitely last longer than 3 months, so this is most likely a drive fault or configuration issue. Please contact me so I can help troubleshoot. If I can't correct the issue remotely I can gather the drive for testing/replacement under a RMA. You can contact me anytime using the email address below and I will gladly assist further.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards,

Robert

1 out of 5 eggsFailed within 2 month

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Cheap when bought on sale

Fast and working for 2 months

Comes with an enclosure

Cons: ***FAILED after only TWO months***

Other Thoughts: Almost exactly 2 months after I installed this drive, it failed while i was browsing and updating a game at the same time. Similar to others who wrote a review for this drive, I also bought it on black friday. Perhaps its a bad patch? Either way the trouble it costed me was not worth the money saved. Will not recommend to other future buyers of this brand.

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Boot time was fast when it booted. Later, it just allowed me to get to the failure point faster.

Cons: Failed after 1 month

Other Thoughts: After almost exactly one month, the drive started randomly failing. At first, I could boot into safe mode, but then the drive would fail when attempting a normal boot. If I tried a soft reset, the drive would not be recognized by my BIOS. A hard reset would let me back into safe mode and the cycle would continue. After about a day of tinkering with my msconfig, the drive stopped being recognized by my BIOS all together.

As always, Newegg's customer service handled my RMA refund quickly.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to read about your experience with the Vertex 460. However, I am happy to read Newegg handled your RMA quickly. I hope you are willing to try another OCZ Storage Solutions product in the future.

Best Wishes,

1 out of 5 eggsVery Surprised on Failure Rate

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Was fast with RAID 0 setup. Nice metal slim casing. Included 3.5 adaptor. Customer support was good when they issued an RMA the same day it was requested via email.

Cons: Died 2 months after purchasing on Black Friday sale. Judging by the 480gb version reviews, it doesn't bode well that many have reported a defective SSD

Other Thoughts: When my SSD failed the other day, I decided to see if anyone else had issues with this particular model by checking reviews on newegg. Besides it not being available anymore, it was more surprising others have posted recently of fails just like mine. Find it funny since some of them bought them on Black Friday as well.
Luckily I was able to recover files I was worried I lost as its in a RAID 0 configuration (I backed them up before the issue).
Even when I get the replacement or repaired drive back, I'm gonna worry about it failing again, or the other one in the RAID configuration.
Right now, I'm back to my 240gb vertex 3 and corsair force 3 in RAID 0 configuration which was a workhorse for many years, and still is.
I thought upgrading to a bigger size while it was on sale was a good idea. Now I'm not so sure.
I will hand it to OCZ in Canada as I was issued an RMA the same day I requested one after explaining what happened.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to read of the issues experienced with your Vertex 460. I understand your concern when viewing other reviews of the product here on newegg.com. Unfortunately, the sample of reviews for the 480G model is very small and has only 12 reviews. Ten of those twelve are negative. While we take all negative experiences seriously, the sample here is incredibly small compared to the vast number of products sold. In fact, OCZ has even begun publicly publishing product return rate data, which includes the Vertex 460. I have included a link to that data on our website.

I am totally confident your replacement will work perfectly. If it doesn't, please contact me directly and I will do everything I can to investigate and resolve the negative experience.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,

Robert

1 out of 5 eggsOverpriced Paperweight

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: It holds paper down really well once it bricks in your laptop

Cons: I bought the drive October 26th of 2014, and it died on January 25th of 2015. It lasted a whole 3 months and I lost everything on it, no signs of life and none of my data recovery utilities work to recover anything from this piece of junk.

Other Thoughts: Save your money and time and buy a crucial drive.

1 out of 5 eggsfailed quickly

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Cheaper price than other brands

Cons: Installed this on a client's MacPro. It failed quickly after 2 months. Tried to call OCZ customer service several times to get the warranty done for replacement but was never able to reach them even once.

Other Thoughts: Poor quality and horrible customer support. I better pay extra for a more reputable brand next time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to read of the sudden issues with your client's Vertex 460. I am very troubled that you were unable to reach our support. If you have been unable to reach us by phone, it is either outside normal business hours or we are assisting other callers. In that event, we also maintain a online case system for expedited troubleshooting and RMA creation. If you have also created a support case and have not received a response within 1 business day please contact me directly using the contact information below.

On behalf of OCZ, I am very sorry you have had a negative experience on multiple levels. I promise will work to make it right.

Kind Regards,

Robert

1 out of 5 eggsDrive died after a month

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: It worked for a solid month

Cons: It only worked for a month.

Other Thoughts: Replaced my old SSD drive that was only 120 gb, Like a moron I reformatted my old drive so i could use it to store mp3s and movies. Then this drive died a month later causing me to lose everything.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Phil P.,

I am sorry to read of the sudden problem with your Vertex 460. It is very strange that this drive developed a problem after only a month of usage. If you haven't already contacted our support please contact me directly about this. I may be able to recover the drive remotely. If not, I will help arrange a RMA.

I look forward to hearing from you and, on behalf of OCZ Storage Solutions, I apologize for the negative experience you have had so far.

Kind Regards,

Robert

1 out of 5 eggsGreat when it worked

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: - Stupidly fast
- Good value

Cons: - Dead after 2 months (no longer recognizable by any SATA controllers)

Other Thoughts: Bought one in March 2014, and it worked beautifully. Therefore I purchased another one in November to set up RAID0. The new drive stopped working in 2 month, and cannot be recognized by computers.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to read about the issue with your 2nd Vertex 460. Since the other drive is working normally, it is unlikely that the problem is related to the host system. Please contact us directly so we can assist you with this. If we cannot correct the issue remotely we will make arrangements to replace the drive in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards,

OCZ Support

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Good while it last.

Cons: Lasted for 5 weeks. Like others I bought this for from black friday. After a normal routine reboot, windows freezes to black screen. Then completely unrecoverable, through recovery, system restore, system fix. Tried re-installing windows and it would even freezes when I tried to reformat it. Right after then motherboard wouldn't even pick up the HDD, not showing in BIOS. Tried it on a USB enclosure with no luck either.

It had no warn, just started going down really fast.

Other Thoughts: a complete pain.
