Failed Miserably

Pros: Looks nice, feels heavy and thus deceives you into peace of mind and believing it will last... and then it craps out on you.

Cons: Complete failure with little to no warning. Just like many have written, random crashes and then suddenly unrecognized by bios. Dead.

Other Thoughts: This brand was a novum at the time but so hyped that when I was looking for a quality SSD I fell for the good reviews and praises. Bottom line is this: The drive was nothing special as far as performance and completely failed me. The one thing it was supposed to be at least, namely reliable it was not. Burt 2 days of my life trying to migrate from a backup to a new SSD. I have now replaced it with a Samsung and will never buy a OCZ product again in my life. Goodbye.

Second time's the charm (not)

Pros: Great size

Cons: I bought two of these... first one failed less than two months into it, had to RMA it. Now just a couple of months after I got that drive back and got the system going again, the second drive failed, too. /sigh -- time to RMA again.

Frankly... I wish I had never bought these drives. I wanted an SSD for speed and reliability. Speed is worthless when it doesn't work at all... hours of time lost setting things up, dealing with software licenses and so on... blown away twice now.

I have no desire to continue to use these drives. They scare me. The failure rate is not acceptable. I think I'm going to go back to platters and just use these for scratch disks... #@%& expensive scratch disks.

Other Thoughts: While OCZ has been good about their RMA process, I'm sorry... I would advise anyone reading over my shoulder to run from these drives.

~sigh~

Pros: Great capacity, great performance... when it worked.

Cons: Less than six months old on a system that's well built, well cooled and not overclocked and, frankly, not worked hard and doing a normal Windows update, reboot the computer and *poof* the SSD simply stops working. BIOS won't recognize it at all. Tried it on a different port, tried it on a different computer, nothing. Gone. For the price, I would expect quality and performance for the long term. Reliability is everything... I do backups, but no backup makes up for the lost hours, the lost data that was created since the last back, nor the loss of access to the working system, the time it takes to rebuild a system, reinstall applications, deal with licenses that have to be reinstalled and on and on and on. The whole point of spending over $1000 on a pair of high performance, high capacity SSDs was to avoid exactly that. I could have done the same with a spindle drive for a fraction of the money.

Beyond disappointed.

Other Thoughts: Worthy of note... reading the forums and other comments, I am far from being the only user with this experience. Don't know if I'll ever buy OCZ again.

OCZ Vector VTR1 512GB

Pros: Terrific Speed, Easy Install, Absolutely No Problems Encountered. The HD is so fast, it allows me to have Bitdefender antivirus and firewall at max protect and not even know it.

Cons: OCZ Toolbox was a waste of a download, but I'm not entirely sure If I had the right version. Will notify OCZ and get their expert opinion.

Other Thoughts: Expensive, but well worth it! I hope OCZ doesn't come out with a larger/faster drive for awhile, or I'll be chomping at the bit to buy another one of their products.

Dear Vikingblood,

Thank you for the wonderful feedback! The OCZ Toolbox is used to update firmware, Secure Erase (wipes the drive), and monitor SMART data (self-monitoring tool). You do need to use the latest available version so Vector is detected properly. The link below includes the latest Desktop Toolbox (Windows Vista, 7, and 8), Bootable Toolbox (All OS), and Mac Bootable Toolbox (OS X) as well as instructions for each.

Thank you again for your purchase and feedback!

Sincerely,
OCZ Support

Dead after 6 months

Pros: Worked fine for a month or so.

Cons: First started getting some trouble with it after a month or so. Blue screens of death, random rebooting, and many other problems. So i just re-formatted, and changed some things to hopefully make it run better. Turned off paging etc. Worked fine for a few more months. Bought it in January and it's completely dead in May.
