2 out of 5 eggs Worked Great - Then It Blew Up 07/25/2013

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)


Very fast (while it was working).


I bought this drive in June of last year and it ran fine - for 13 months (lucky number). A couple days ago I was simply checking email and got a quick blue screen and the system rebooted. After that, the BIOS would not see the drive. I tried a recovery method I found that OCZ recommends but it didn't work. The drive is now an expensive paper weight. From what I've read online, it seems that there are problems wih the sata controllers on this drive. Sadly for me, I think the warranty is expired. Thank The Maker I was backing up most of my data regularly. Call me naiive, but when I pay over $250 bucks for a hard drive, I expect a core component like the OS drive to last more than 13 months! Methiks I'll be buying a Samsung next time.
