1 out of 5 eggs Fast but not reliable 08/20/2013

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC VTR1-25SAT3-256G

Pros: Fast, good price.

Cons: After about 2 months, I started to get warning that the filesystem had issues and required a reboot. So I rebooted... the system was not bootable at this point. Over a 2 week period, I had to reload Windows 7 time (I need the system for work). This seems to be a common failure with other reviews. I called OCZ tech which I found painless. But it was requested that I to do the RMA online. I am still waiting for the RMA response (3days).

Other Thoughts: I gave it one egg for reliability (to me, this is the only attribute I care about when it comes to storage device). Tech support I would give 4 eggs.
Also, OCZ should be more responsive to the RMA requests.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good QOS, & Port switch is very handy.

Cons: After about a month, if there was any activity to an attached hard drive, the system would lock up. I called Tech support, and they promptly sent me a NEW unit. After about a week (when it warms up) the wireless services would stop working. Called tech support, and this time it took over 2 weeks to get the replacement. This time, WD sent me a Scratched up, re-certified unit that smelled like cigarets. Called tech support, and again, they sent me someones old scratched up re-certified broken unit (at lest this one does not smell like cigarets). If WD is going to replace your failed unit with someones else failed (re-certified) unit, at least change the case. I am in the process of testing the 4th unit.
But I do not have high hopes at this time. Please note that the routers, each time, was/is setting in a bread rack, so there was no issue with are flow. Even with that, they seem to have heating issues.

Other Thoughts: For such a large company, I had high hope for the product.
But the QA is not there.
