2 out of 5 eggs Not bad, when it isn't locked up. 02/21/2013

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 2 3.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD3-2VTX120G

Pros: Being that this was my first solid state in my desktop, i was impressed with how fast everything loaded. That's about all i can say after having the following issues in the con section.

Cons: A month after installation, drive locks up entirely. I learned that the issue was with the chipset and the sleep/hibernate/wake cycle the computer goes into when you just leave it on. I was very upset, but that subsided when OCZ RMA'd and a replacement was on its was out a week later. The wait sucked, but hey, being replaced, couldn't complain. Once received i made sure that my computer would never perform the sleep/ hibernate cycle ever again. I would have that thing on so as to not even give it the chance to even consider nap time. 2 days ago, i hit the sleep button since i was running out for lunch and it had seized up by the time i got back. This thing flat out *****. The lifespan of this drive is not even worth $20. Do yourself a favor and buy an intel ssd of the smasung 840 pro. Whatever you do, avoid this product. You will be disappointed in the long run.

Other Thoughts: Worthless. I wouldn't even take a free one.
