Another OCZ drive fails
Terry G., Newegg
23 April 2014
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.
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.
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: I bought the OCZ AGT 4 128G and had loads of trouble getting it to work (half a day) as it would only randomly be found i the BIOS. I finally got it running but after copying some files to the drive it disappeared from the BIOS and in windows - again... I returned it and got a Samsung SSD 840 Series instead - The Samsung worked right from the start took me 2 minutes to install and I have no not had a single problem with it, it's fast too.
Summary: Ich wollte mein altes langsames C-Laufwerk, gegen ein schnellen SSD Speicher ersetzen, aber das war wohl nix! Speicher eingebaut, Windows installiert und schon ging es los, Windows abgebrochen, alles wieder auf Anfang, Speicher wurde nicht mehr erkannt!!! ( Game over) SSD Speicher wieder zurück geschickt. Vielleicht kommt ja jetzt eine die funktioniert?
