Not as fast as advertised...

Clayton P., Newegg
27 August 2014
  • Summary: I would not choose another OCZ SSD as they seem to bump up their scores about how fast their SSD's are but yet they are supper slow...
  • Pros: Very easy to update Firmware and has not crapped out as of yet...
  • Cons: Read and Write speeds were slower than my HDD, Read was about 89 and write was about 75mbs. Like seriously?! And yes I had it plugged into SATA III.

This drive worked for well over a year in my ...

Scott Wilson, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: This drive worked for well over a year in my MacBook Pro 2010, I don't even keep my data on it, only the OS and Apps. But once it failed, it failed hard. Probably for many of the reasons stated in the many many reviews. Disk Utility could not repair it and suggested I "Back up as many files as possible, reformat the disk, and restore your backed up files.". I did that and decided to check the drive for errors and restore all my backed up data 2x to this disk.

Poor Endurance

K. Contini, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: I gave this a try due to price. The reviews for OCZ SSDs and other memory devices are historically poor in comparison to major competitors (Kingston, Samsung, Crucial, etc.). Unfortunately, the trend continues. This drive was VERY fast when it was new. However, it was placed in a laptop that I only use a few days per month for ~12 months. So it saw little use, and the speed did decline steadily with time.

Stumped

Scott W., Newegg
26 March 2014
  • Summary: Stumped. Going to try for an RMA...
  • Pros: Worked great on the ancient Mac Mini I had.
  • Cons: Tried to transfer the drive to a Windows 7 machine and it would not recognize it. I downloaded the bootable OCZ toolkit and still no joy. I now have a 120GB paper weight. Tried to install Win 7, then Ubuntu just to format it... unrecognizable even as the only HDD drive in the machine.

Good when it works

Bethany D., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I knew it was a gamble when purchasing a product that was cheep and refurbished. Lucky for me newegg is very willing to replace it.
  • Pros: Fast quiet cheep matched my system theme Seems like a excellent SDD when working
  • Cons: From the first day I had it, it was doing the "cold boot error" where it was not being recognized in the bios on a cold boot. I usually have to restart the computer several times for it to start working properly.

Warranty Followup

John R., Newegg
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Buy the extended warranty. You will need it.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Original unit failed within warranty period. RMA with OCZ resulting in shipping me a REFURBISHED Vertex unit. That unit failed in less than a month. Now I am out of the warranty.

Buyer Beware

John R., Newegg
14 January 2014
  • Summary: Pay for the extended warranty from Newegg. You WILL need it.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: This drive failed during the warranty period. Newegg would not replace it (less than 1 year after purchase). After several emails with OCZ they gave me an RMA. What they sent me as a replacement was REFURBISHED Vertex 3...NOT an Agility 3 like I purchased. Do not trust the warranty.

Wonky

Thomas C., Newegg
18 December 2013
  • Pros: Low Price
  • Cons: Drive causes Windows to be spastic, even with the proper drivers. Locks windows randomly, or in bursts. Basically bad drive. I will never buy refurbished OCZ again.

1st drive arrive with BAD sectors!!

Kyle R., Newegg
9 December 2013
  • Summary: Newegg's RMA process was absolutely awesome, as usual. It just sucks having to RMA anything in the first place! For $65.99, this drive is a bargain. However, after reading most of this drive's reviews, you've basically got a 50/50 shot of getting a good or junk drive. If you have good luck gambling at a casino, then this drive is for you!
  • Pros: -Price -Sata 3 -Sandforce Controller -Somewhat high read/write speeds -2nd drive hasn't died...YET
  • Cons: -1st drive had multiple bad sectors and would hang 75-80% of the time while running Windows -Read and Write speeds are 100-150MB/s lower than advertised. Even on a new MSI military class board with sata III and updated firmware on the SSD itself.

DOA - exchanged in-house

Andrew M., Newegg
3 December 2013
  • Summary: I live in Silicon Valley so the exchange process was easy for me. I arranged for a time that I could come in, have the drive tested, and receive a replacement. I don't envy those that have go through the exchange process, and that live outside of driving range of the OCZ facility.
  • Pros: That sure is one enticing price... The DOA exchange was simple enough (but see below).
  • Cons: Well, it was DOA
