OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX180G 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Disk is plagued with errors 06/30/2013

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX180G 3.5" 180GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super fast, especially as a boot drive
Low temps

Cons: Not dependable like a hard disk drive
Won't last long
unorthodox form factor (when installing to my rig)
Expensive at the time of purchase

Other Thoughts: I have successfully installed Mac OS and Windows operating systems before, back and forth during the time i used this SSD. As the two year mark came, Windows 8, my OS installed on it at the time became unresponsive to usual commands (i.e. program functionality, Windows updates, etc.). The SSD was part of a multiboot system alongside with Mac 10.8.3 (which was on a different hard disk: Velociraptor 1TB). During the boot process of the Mac, it would display error after error being detected from the Win 8 drive. At first I thought my Win 8 drive (SSD) had a virus. Every time I tried to make a backup copy of Win 8 from the SSD it would fail, no matter if I used Window's native Backup and Restore or if I used disk cloning software such as Shadow Copy Cloner. After many weeks of trying to revive the drive, I had no choice but to salvage whatever files I was able to copy from the SSD and take a loss on my Win 8 OS. I like OCZ for their memory (best in the business) but their SSDs s*ck. I'm sad I ever gave thought to owning an SSD from this brand.
