OCZ REFUSES TO HONOR WARRANTY!! LIARS!
C. F. Jung, Amazon
21 July 2014
Summary: The product is ok. The company SUCKS! This drive was installed in my MacBook Pro approximately 2 years ago. It died about 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately, I didn't purchase on Amazon and no longer have the receipt. WE all know that if a manufacturer has the serial # and the model # of the SSD, they'll know when it was released for sale. The SSD has a 3 year warranty which OCZ refuses to honor! They keep insisting they need the receipt to authorize a replacement.
Cons: I bought 2 drive 16 months ago. The first one failed after 13 months. The second failed after 16 months. Both were used as system drives. I've lost a lot of data and a lot of time. OCZ---REPLACE MY DRIVES! Honor your warranties.
Cons: I purchased this drive in 2012. I used it for about 8 months before it completely died. Shows up sometimes and sometimes it does not. Before it died, it would take 3 or 4 reboots to get it to show up in the bios. Many times it would require me to reseat the drive to get it to show up for a few hours. I received a replacement via RMA. I had already reinstalled everything to my original HD that came with the laptop. So I did not use the replacement right away. I install...
Summary: Drive #1 shipped with new computer we purchase, SSD died within 60 days but by the time I got to contacting the company that sold it to me it was out of their warranty. Contact OCZ, RMA, new drive comes in. This drive lasted from 11/18/2013 through 2/6/2014 on a computer that gets next to no use as the person who uses it is in one day a week and turns the thing off after use. So seven to ten full days of use? Probably the same for the first drive.
Summary: When the first of 2 SSDs died I just assumed it was a bad drive, but when the 2nd one died, it makes me believe OCZ's refurb process is nothing more then seeing if a returned drive will show up on the controller and formatting it.
Pros: Works great while it works.
Cons: Ordered these on Nov 22. First one died yesterday(Dec 2), submitted to OCZ for RMA, was asked for receipt, but you cannot attach it via their exdesk page and you cannot email it as the email address they are using does not exist. Today(12/3) the 2nd SSD died. So far I am not impressed with both OCZs product or their technical support/RMA departments as they seem rather slow.
Summary: I have not had any issues with new OCZ products. Let the reviews here and at other places on the Internet guide your buying decision. Also know that ALL electronics, independent of brand and model, have failures. Product reviews can help you discriminate between good and bad but not always. Sometimes it is just a roll of the dice.
Pros: None. Died relatively fast.
Cons: This is my experience: I have purchased 2 - OCZ refurbished SSD's in the past 8 months and both have died. I would be extremely cautious purchasing their refurbished products as it appears to me they have NOT resolved the problem(s) that caused the failures in the first place. In other words, if one of their devices fails and OCZ takes it back - "refurbishes" it - and then puts it back into the marketplace for sale - and it dies again - they very likely did NOT unders...
Summary: The drives worked great until they just up and died. I wish I could give them more stars but the company is a nightmare to deal with so I am forced to leave a bad review.
Pros: Very Fast. Was very easy to recommend to fellow gamers and pc builders...until....
Cons: 2 out of the 3 I bought died. I would try to RMA them but since I had such an awesome experience trying to get my mail in rebates, that I gave up on after several weeks of emailing, I decided to sell all remaining working hard drives and RAM (on an auction site that I seem to be not allowed to name) that I had from OCZ and go with a different company.
Summary: DONT BUY UNLESS YOU LIKE TO WASTE MONEY.... BUY A SAMSUNG 840 INSTEAD.....
Pros: Fast-ish, when it works....
Cons: Bought this drive in July/August last year, had to replace 2 months later... Received the RMA replacement after dealing with OCZ RMA (took three weeks before I was issued an RMA#)... now, another 9 months after I received my replacement drive... this one has now gone bad... sat on hold for 40 minutes before I finally left a voicemail demanding a call back.... we'll see what happens.......
