Sold years later

Pros: its 2015 and these 3 year old drives are still running strong. they have been in a RAID0 array sense day one and have provided 800+ MB/s read/write operations reliably the entire time, no slowing down with age, and no data retention issues like some other major SSD drives.

still rock solid stable.

Cons: i don't want nor need to upgrade?

Overall Review: the Intel Rapid Storage drivers when i first added them to my build were junk and caused regular crashing. thankfully an update or two later and everything settled down. there have been no issues at all sense then. (this was the first month of owner ship)

Constant BSODs

Pros: it's fast. I thought the SSD was giving me random reboot issue but ended but junkie Asus motheboard. now using z270 motherboard same SSD all works ok.

Cons: everything you can think of. I've been getting blue screen every hour and it's killing productivity and im very disappointed in ocz as this was my first ssd. I hope I can get replacement for this drive. we will find out. I doubt it doesn't go well with Asus z77 motherboard like everyone has mentioned.

A hidden gem

Pros: When researching SSDs at the time, it was all about the Samsungs. I did not read a single mention about these OCZ drives but a "hot deal" is how I ended up with one. This drive is very fast. It is my Windows drive in a dual boot system. My OSX drive is a Samsung 850 EVO. The drives trade blows but in the end I give the crown to the Vertex, particularly where large files (5gb+) are concerned. I favor Windows. I originally had each OS on the opposite drive. I favored the Vertex enough to take the time to move Windows to the Vertex and OSX to the 850. That is saying something.

Cons: None do date. Zero problems from day one and I had had it since first released.

Overall Review: I have over 20 years in the field and have had literally hundreds of drives and to day have had only one spindle drive and zero SSDs fail (knocks on wood). No sure what everyone else is doing to theirs.

Just Died After 3.5 Years

Pros: Good while it lasted. My important data is on secondary HDDs.

Cons: Failed too soon.

Overall Review: Mine died today after 3.5 years. I was just doing normal work and a blue screen popped up. Drive does not show up in the BIOS. Tested the port and power supply with another SSD and it checks out fine.

Failed after 3 years

Pros: Seemed reasonably fast

Cons: Used this as a boot drive for a little over three years. Then one day the BIOS no longer saw the drive. Tried reseating cables but that didn't help. Since this was used as the boot drive, computer would no longer boot and reported no boot drive present.

Overall Review: Should last longer than three years of use. Not recommended. I'm now using other brand SSDs.

OCZ 256GB FREEZING, CONFIRMED

Pros: Specs are good on paper
SERIOUS FREEZING PROBLEM

Cons: Took me 2 years+ to conclude this drive has serious FREEZING problem to the point you can not use it at all. it Freezes the computer every few minutes. swapped out the drive fixed the problem instantly. wipe disk, formatting did not fix the problem.
I blamed it on other components in my PC for 2 years trusting this OCZ SSD never fails. I was wrong. I also saw other reviews complained about the same FREEZING problem. I paid high dollars for this drive when it came out.
Bad thing is I discovered this Just pass my 3 years warranty, Guess I will never buy OCZ again unless they read my review and offer to allow RMA for a good working SSD. Cross my fingers....

Overall Review: I am 100% sure the FREEZING problem of this specific MODEL. I have 4 PCs to test this drive and the problem follows the drive no matter what I did to fix such as wipe disk, delete partition, reformat, reinstall fresh image.
