OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Best ssd! 05/28/2013

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC

Pros: This is the third OCZ SSD I've purchased from Newegg. All have worked as advertised, and far better than any other drive I have ever used. Newegg had all three in my hands within three days, or less.

Cons: None I've known. I purchased one for my wife's PC, one for my laptop, and one for my desktop.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded my laptop (Toshiba) from Vista to Win7 using this SSD, and I can't get over how quick everything runs. Did the same thing for my wife's PC, same result. I recently purchased a new desktop (Cyberpower) from Newegg that had Win8 on it. I used it for a month or so, then finally decided Win8 is a mistake for me. Bought this SSD and put Win7Pro on it. Reinstalled my apps, and life is good again.
Win8 may be wonderful for entertainment...I found it to be not so great as a working person's OS. Actually more of a hindrance, for me.

OCZ Vertex 3.20 VTX3-25SAT3-240G.20 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Ease of use, quick

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I reviewed the wrong review should have been for this SSD.

OCZ Vertex Plus R2 VTXPLR2-25SAT2-240GB 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does what the manufacturer says it does, and more. Connected the cables, inserted a fresh copy of Win7Pro in the DVD, and sat back for about three minutes. It took longer to program my apps than it did to put Win7 on either PC.

Cons: None that I've found. I had a slow laptop (Vista), and did NOT like Win8Pro on my new desktop. I played with Win8 for well over a month trying to get used to it, but found it was more of a hindrance than help, for me. Two new OCZ Vertex SSDs and two new copies of Win7Pro from NewEgg cured both of my PC problems.

Other Thoughts: Maximum PC mag says the OCZ Vertex is the best SSD, and I believe it! I bought one for my laptop (Vista to Win7) and one for my desktop (Win8 to Win7). Both boot up in 30 seconds, shut down in about 6 seconds. It's the easiest and best way to give your PC a quick boost of energy all the way around. I can't believe how quick my apps work now on both PCs. Newegg had both SSDs and the Win7Pro disks in my hands in 2 days...Newegg rocks!!!!
