OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Fast but unreliable 03/31/2014

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series VTR1-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Boots Windows 7 64-bit faster than 2 1TB WD Black drives in RAID0, but loses data-see cons

Cons: This drive kept either losing my data or freezing every 20 minutes and then kept going, but with the loss of data. I had a music folder that would get deleted every time I started Windows, and the drive acted like it did not want to save any new. Things would go missing, or revert back to an old file. I finally had to send it back after it deleted my schoolwork folder that I luckily saved a copy of on my WD RAID0 black drives.

Other Thoughts: I will probably try Samsung this time, since they have such a good review lineup.

AMD A4-3400 Llano Dual-Core 2.7GHz Socket FM1 65W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6410D AD3400OJHXBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Plays many new games at the time it was introduced, and was perfect for a budget gaming build believe it or not. I have bought this processor so many times for budget builds, and the customers are greatly surprised. Adding a gfx card made it more powerfull than a 6870 by itself.

Cons: Might be a little slow on the newest games, and can bogged down by too many things running at once. Of course I own an awesome 8 core, so this is not comparative.

Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have 2 of these in RAID 0 on a 990FX mobo. I bought one of them in 2010 and the other a couple of months back. They both work exactly the same and I have no performance issues with them, and they are pretty fast. I have both of them heavily loaded down with over 200 full size (5-10GB's) games, including all of the latest high-end titles. I also just purchased a 128 GB OCZ SSD for 75 bucks, and I will be using it solely for Windows startup.

Cons: It doesn't go faster than an SSD, even in RAID 0. Not really a con for the price difference and capacity.

Other Thoughts: I could only with I had SSD's that were WD Black edition for the same price and capacity for maximum RAID-age.
