- SATA III
Fast, but ultimately unreliable 02/09/2014
This review is from: OCZ Vector Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC VTR1-25SAT3-256G
Fast in all usage situations
Unreliable - began showing serious drive errors (i.e. corrupt OS files) after about 8 months and the most recent one destroyed the whole OS drive. The drive still works, but all of the files just disappeared after an OS-recommended "restart to fix drive errors" alert.
All usage was under Windows 8 or 8.1. After about 8 months, I started getting Windows "restart to fix drive errors" messages intermittently. To see if it was fixable, I wiped all the partitions and reinstalled Windows 8.1 fresh last week. One week later, I got another of the same errors, restarted to fix the errors, and blue-screened on boot. When I looked at the drive, all of the files were gone on the drive.
