Disappointed

Miklos M., Newegg
2 September 2014
  • Summary: I really like OCZ products but this is the first time OCZ has let me down. I've owned alot of Refurb OCZ Revo drives and SSD'S that still run. This one was glitchy out of the box.
  • Pros: Was fast when it would boot.
  • Cons: SSD was failing out of the box thought it was the motherboard turn'ed out it wouldn't show up in the Bois at ramdom, then it got to the piont where it wouldnt come up at all or boot the OS. Now i have to hassle with RMA.

Hard drive died within 1 year.

A. Moffett, Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: OCZ Hard drives have an astronomical failure rate compared to other manufacturers. Unfortunately the performance on this unit sold it to me before I had such knowledge. System crashed and the bios no longer recognized the hard drive. Swapped to a new hard drive and the computer was back to normal. I recommend against purchasing anything from OCZ.

15 June 2014
  • Pros: Very inexpensive
  • Cons: Its cheap and last no time. I purchased two of these and ran them in mirrior raid configuration. I had one go out 2 months in and sent it in. Got it back the next week the other one goes out. Sent it in and 3 months later same story one goes out ect ect. Keeps going until I get your no longer in warranty sorry cannot help you. It is cheap and will not last at all. I went with a Samsung now and love the EVO 840s they rock. Never miss a beat and they dont break. I love ...

You Are the Guinea Pig for OCZ's Bad Firmware

southleft, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: OCZ are notorious for rushing to market with half-baked control software/firmware. They've had to replace literally hundreds of thousands of faulty SSDs under warranty. This placed them in a difficult financial position and they were unable to raise enough capital to keep going on their own. Toshiba bought their assets, but even a good company like Toshiba cannot undo bad products already out there.

Died after 8 months

SAMUEL C., Newegg
2 May 2014
  • Pros: discounted price
  • Cons: 6 month warranty, died at 8 months. And by died I mean it won't show up at POST/BIOS. Verified on multiple computers. I went cheap and now of course wish I paid more. Good luck Toshiba. I've bought about half a dozen OCZ drives over the years. This is the first one I've had to fail.

Worked like a Charm for over a year and then failed

Michael Weathersby, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: So I bought the 480gb version originally to use for my Black Magic Cinema Camera. I put off buying that camera and then got a DSLR. I put this drive into my computer and it worked well for about 11 months. I ended up buying the camera and started using this drive for the camera. It worked well for the first 3 months and then it was no longer detected by the camera.

  • Summary: Do not buy these model, even you are on a tight budget. Save up and buy a brand with a very good review. I put these out to help people like me who have a tight budget and learn a lesson the hard way.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I have 2 vertex 3 and 1 Agility 3 . I updated these drive with the latest firmware version 2.5. Now there are a lot of problem with these drive and I can not go back firmware wise. It's just a messed and look like there is no solution coming. OCZ is not doing anything for the pass several months now. So I am stock with these SSD's.

OCZ Vertex 3 dead

Brian E., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Pros: Worked well when It was working. Fast and good price point at the time.
  • Cons: Dead after 2.5 years. Upon reading other review of OCZ SSDs maybe I should have chosen something different.
