Summary: Length:: 0:23 Mins I get BSOD everyday with VERTEX 3 which is a story that VERTEX 3 Users share, after a full month of OCZ being in denial about the issue they finally did admit that the BSOD is a serious issue they are facing right now, they had to admit it because everyday there are few threads about the BSOD issue in their forums EVEN after they try to delete/edit/ban users who talk about the BSOD it was out of control so they were forced to knowledge the issue ,...
Summary: I installed this SSD in a laptop. When the laptop goes to sleep (or if I put it to sleep), the drive will not wake up. I have to press and hold the power button to shut off the computer. OCZ released a firmware update for the Vertex 3's that might fix this issue (among other issues) fairly quickly after the drive was released, but there is no way to upgrade the firmware on my drive.

I purchased this OCZ Vertex 3 120Gb MAX IOPS SSD drive from Amazon last week. Although the drive so far has worked fine, I have found out after purchasing it that OCZ's latest Toolbox (Version 2.36) does not support a firmware update to the primary boot drive.
