- SATA III
Great... For 2 months. 02/25/2014
This review is from: OCZ Vector Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC VTR1-25SAT3-256G
The drive has worked well for maybe a month or two total time. During the time it was working it was absolutely blazing fast-- the system could boot faster than it took for my BenQ monitor to turn on.
For the rest of the time, I have been plagued with "Windows has found errors with your drive" alerts and files disappearing or corrupting randomly. I store my most played games on this drive and it seems like I need to verify and reacquire files every freakin time I want to play something because something has gone missing or been corrupted.
I updated the firmware a while back, but it only put a bandaid on the problem. I sent it back to OCZ (which took forever) and they replaced it with a refurb... which has begun to exhibit the same problems the drive I returned was exhibiting. :(
I can tell that this is a great product when it works but it's just extremely frustrating that I'm probably going to have to send this thing back AGAIN and be without my computer for 2-3 weeks.
If you continue to experience issues (especially the same issues) even with a replacement please contact me using the email address below. Many factors can contribute to unstable system behavior and I will gladly help you troubleshoot to find the cause of the issues. It is unlikely, but not impossible, that both drives are the root cause. Please contact me and reference your previous RMA number and current system configuration. I will assess the current situation and get you taken care of appropriately.
On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!
