Works fine, recieved it as a remplacement from OCZ 5/5/2018 9:29:51 PM

Pros: -Decent speed, but I can't recommand it for more than 150 bucks.

Write 475mbs
Mixed 482mbs

Cons: -I didn't buy it, but I can't recommand the price shown on newegg. 200 bucks would have been realistic.

Overall Review: -OCZ did offer me a good RMA experience, by providing a new drive quickly even with my previous issue.

OCZ Vector 150, 480g 5/14/2015 10:37:09 PM

Pros: Fast, large capacity. I submitted earlier a review where 2 OCZ SSD 480g drives have failed for me. Robert from OCZ replied to my review and completed the RMA process for me. Robert also supplied me with pre paid shipping so I did not have to pay to ship the drive for the RMA to OCZ. I shipped the Vector 150 480g for RMA and OCZ returned to me a Vector 180 480g. So far its working great, time will tell if its going to be reliable. One thing is sure OCZ has stood behind their warrant and replaced the faulty drives without question. Robert was awesome and made sure my RMA was completed and that it did not cost me for shipping. Thanks Robert ! Gave 5 stars for warranty

Cons: Have had reliability issues

Great Deal and Fast 3/18/2015 2:09:45 PM

Pros: It was very simple to install and load the OS on to the HD. With windows 8.1 and this HD, I can boot in 3 seconds. The speed is amazing.

Cons: None worth noting.
