This was great back in Dec '09 when I bought it. Speedy, good price.
It ran until Oct '13, but now the BIOS/an external enclosure won't recognize it, etc etc. I guess I blame sandforce? I haven't really looked into it.
I guess some spinning hard drives have died faster than this little guy, but I'm a little disappointed. Seeing as how they don't make these anymore, I don't really know why I'm writing a review. Closure, I guess.
This may not be closed yet! The original Vertex series does have a way of restoring functionality of a drive that developed an unknown issue. This is called the destructive updater. Please visit the link below for a complete guide. If you experience any issues running the updater please create a new post in our Support Forum and we will gladly assist.
