OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Not worth buying, won't last 03/15/2015

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G 2.5" 115GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works great when it works. once it dies, forget about getting it running again.

Cons: Will die if you have it connected to a laptop that goes into sleep/hibernate made or if your computer is set to ahci mode. I contacted OCZ about mine dying, of course it was out of warranty period and all I was told was too bad. I really thought these were built to last a long time and actually take over harddrives as our new use for storage. For some reason, there are way too many ways to mess this one up and they have refused to fix it. I kept mine up to date with any firmware updates that were available but nothing came through to help make it through this. When the ssd is connected, I get red and green lights on it. Any computer that I put it into will not recognize it...it did last a while, but not as long as my platter harddrives...sorry but due to that I cannot give it more than one star.

Other Thoughts: If they could make this where it actually can be used in place of a hard drive without any issue and make it where it will last as long or more than a hard drive then this would be a really worthwile purchase, but as it stands, I would have to say that I would definitely pass this one up.

XFX Radeon R9 280X R9-280X-TDFD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation Edition Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs If you are having 'screen flickering' problems, contact XFXForce 07/01/2014

This review is from: XFX Radeon R9 280X R9-280X-TDFD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation Edition Video Card

Pros: After contacting XFXForce about the 'screen flickering' issue I was having, I received a reply from them about an updated bios for the video card. Since then I have not had even one issue with the screen flickering again.

Cons: None other than Battlefield 4 will absolutely not run more than a few minutes before locking up my computer. Before it ran pretty good, but the screen flickering was annoying.

Other Thoughts: If this video card had come with the updated bios already installed then I would have more than likely changed my mind about ever buying an Nvidia card again. Even tho this card is running really good now with the updated bios, it may end up being my one and only AMD video card purchase.

XFX Radeon R9 280X R9-280X-TDFD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation Edition Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When the card works, it is an amazing video card

Cons: The screen flickers or jumps constantly either in desktop or in games. No matter what I have done, I can't get rid of the jerky video. If anyone has any thoughts or has come across a way of getting this card to work right, please let me know.

Other Thoughts: I have reinstalled OS, rolled back drivers, updated drivers, underclocked the video card and overclocked the video card...not sure what to do with it. My GTX480 holds up pretty good compared to this since it doesn't have the shakes...
