1 out of 5 eggsTerrible reliability

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

Pros: like other reviews it works well when it's working

Cons: I bought this beginning of November 2014, it failed mid January, took a few days of back and forth before they gave me an rma label.
It's now mid august 2015 and the drive has failed again. *Sigh*

Other Thoughts: Im not buying an OCZ brand drive ever again.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Phil P.,

I am very sorry that you, and others, had this issue with the 480GB version of the Vertex 460. I have checked your case history and see we have already provided an Advanced RMA. Your replacement will be shipping 8/13/2015 and should be to you by Monday. I am confident the replacement product can regain your trust.

3 out of 5 eggsAnother OCZ failed drive story

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

Pros: Good performance out of the box.
3 Year Warranty.
OCZ was quick to issue an RMA and replace my failed drive.

Cons: Obviously these drives have a high failure rate. Like many others I purchased this on Black Friday 2014. Seven months later, the drive failed completely.

OCZ asked me to run some tests in another device but I pointed out that according to the reviews on Newegg they were all failing and we could save time if he'd just issue me an RMA. They did without hesitation, though I did have to pay shipping costs, which was annoying given the clear problem they have with their product.

Other Thoughts: The replacement drive came quickly via UPS. I am hopeful that they have improved the quality because I would not like to repeat this every six months.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo drives, two failures

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

Pros: Good performance...while it works.

Cons: Original Vertex 460 was used in a new PC build. First issue with it was during initial software load. Got Win 8.0 installed, updated, upgraded to Win8.1, and then started installing applications, and during that process got a blue screen of death and PC would no longer boot (UEFI BIOS didn't show the drive installed). Recovered by replacing the SATA cable, quick-formatting the drive, and starting from scratch with OS load. Lost about a day of effort due to this issue.

After the second attempt to load OS and apps, drive and PC performed fine. Used the drive for ~3 months as the boot drive for this new build with no issues, but then over a period of about 36 hours, PC began to behave "erratically", and then completely failed to boot. Again, the drive did not appear in the BIOS. This time, the SSD was hard-failed, and OCZ RMA'd the drive and replaced it with a Vertex 460A.

I bought a different drive for the PC build I'd been using the 460 in, and used the replacement 460A to upgrade a laptop. The 460A worked fine for about 3 months, then started showing the same symptoms as the original drive: Laptop failed to boot one day because "there was not boot drive installed". After a power cycle, the drive re-appeared and the laptop booted fine and worked all day with no issue. Shut it down for the evening, and today it's not booting and the drive won't appear in the BIOS.

Getting really tired of this, OCZ....

Other Thoughts: Based on reviews, I knew I was taking a chance on the 460, and I wasn't too surprised to get a dud drive. When it was replaced by the 460A, I thought the new model would be free from the problems that plagued the 460, but it doesn't look like that's the case.

I'll be going back to Samsung.

1 out of 5 eggsStay away from OCZ

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 lasts...

Cons: Failed twice within 6 months. Several sectors corrupted.

Other Thoughts: Just an advice... Stay away from OCZ. Let's see how long it takes for them to answer me, I sending the drive, then getting (hopefully) a new one...

Meanwhile, I had to order a Samsung 850EVO to revive my computer...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Angel T.,

I am sorry to read of the issue with your Vertex 460. After researching your case history I see you contacted us on June 19th and that same day we offered an Advanced Replacement RMA and shipped you a brand new 480GB Vertex 460A. I trust this replacement has already arrived and I am confident it can regain your trust.

If you have any questions or require any further assistance don't hesitate to contact us.

Best Regards,

1 out of 5 eggs2nd one dead now

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

Pros: None that I can think of now. RMA is pretty quick.

Cons: Not reliable whatsoever. Back up data daily if you wish to keep it. Costing more to send back for RMA replacement because I live in Canada.

Other Thoughts: The 1st one died as mentioned in my past review set up with RAID 0 after 2 months. Now the 2nd one is starting to die. It is throwing errors and I can't back up files as it keeps crashing. Sure it's great to have warranty but the cost to ship back every 2 or 4 months at a time is ludicrous. This is my last OCZ product ever, I will ensure I to keep friends and family away from this and future product.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Michael,

I am sorry to read about your continued issues with the Vertex 460. If you contact us we can definitely arrange for another replacement and even a prepaid return shipping label. There is no excuse for that you have experienced and we are here to help. You can contact us again using the link below and we will work to correct this.

On behalf of OCZ Storage Solutions, I apologize for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,

1 out of 5 eggsProduct as bad as Newegg return policy

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

Pros: Fast while it works

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

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

Pros: Easy to install. Worked like a charm for about two weeks.

Cons: After the two week mark I started to notice more BSOD. Post BSOD the drive would not be detectable by the bios. After countless attempts at reformatting and finally being able to re-install a new OS same problems appeared. Highly disappointed with this drive I've never had this much trouble on a new build. Wasted countless hours on this Sdd. RMA process with OCZ was easy enough. Revision 460A arrived. Not sure if this is a newer model or a down graded version. Hope it works.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Richard N.,

My name is Robert and I monitor customer feedback here at Newegg.com. I am sorry to read you experienced problems with your Vertex 460. It appears you have already initiated a RMA and have received a replacement product. The Vertex 460A you received is a newer model and certainly not a downgrade. I am confident this replacement will serve you well. If you encounter any issues at all please contact me directly so I can assist.

On behalf of OCZ, I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced.

Kind Regards,

Robert

3 out of 5 eggsInitial drive quickly failed, replacement has been okay so far.

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

Pros: Big SSD, fast, and I got it for a fantastic price that I haven't seen quite matched yet for this level of SSD.
The Indilinx controller and Toshiba MLC flash seem reputable.
Painless RMA, and the replacement drive has been trouble free so far.

Cons: 1st drive died very quickly after install.
Initially it seemed fine, but while using the included Acronis software to copy my old SSD to this one, Acronis suddenly threw read errors for the Vertex 460. After rebooting, the Vertex 460 was no longer detected by either SATA controller on my motherboard. I spent a day trying to resuscitate it, but had no luck.
Like others here I bought this drive on the black Friday sale, though I ended up waiting several weeks before actually installing it. It sounds like a bad batch of drives may have gone out during that sale.

Other Thoughts: The RMA process with OCZ was quick and painless. They quickly authorized my RMA, and within about a week of shipping the old Vortex 460 to them I had a brand new replacement. So far the replacement has had no problems, with about 2 1/2 months of daily use now. Time will tell if the replacement remains trouble free. I'm glad for the 3-year warranty, though I hope I will not need to use it again.

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.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Andre P.,

My name is Robert and I monitor customer feedback here at Newegg.com. I am sorry to read you experienced an issue with your Vertex 460. I have already located your case history and see we received your drive and will be shipping back to you very soon. I trust you will receive your replacement shortly and I am confident the replacement will be capable of regaining your trust. If you have any questions or need any assistance in the future you can contact me anytime using the email address below. I am happy to discuss any questions or concerns you might have.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience the Vertex 460 issue has caused you.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed

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
