Reviews and Problems with OCZ Agility 4 Series (AGT4-25SAT3)

Works okay, until it doesn't
25 March 2014
Summary: I bought this in September of 2012, and it has been working well up until about a month ago. Since then, I've had to rebuild my PC 4 times and finally confirmed it is the SSD. Their warranty process is also asinine. Needing the serial number makes sense, but needing a part number and not having this show up in your utility is a PITA. At this point though, don't even think of buying one, Get a newer model Samsung that is a better deal and faster...and works.
Summary: As of right now I cannot give this a good review. I have had it 10 months and it failed. Cannot recover my data. Looking back it looks like it was a bad SSD from the start but had not totally failed yet. So I experienced frustrating problems that was blamed many places with hours and hours of tech support when it was just my SSD from the start. I am starting the warranty process now and I will update once I am done.
Summary: I got one of these earlier this year to play around with on a CustoMac I built a couple of years back. I got a $40 rebate so you can imagine how happy I was with the final price. It worked for about 4 months then started freezing up on me with the disk activity LED lit up for hours. Soon my system stopped recognizing the drive entirely.
Summary: I installed this drive into my Macbook Pro, and used it since November. The drive performance started to slow as I placed more video content on the drive. Then the drive completely failed stalling at the first screen with the apple logo or sometime stuck on a blue screen. I sent it back and they immediately replaced the drive with a new one. This time I partitioned the drive into 2 sectors, A. 200 gig and B.
Summary: 2 million hours MTBF? Seriously? Is this OCZ's little joke? I was hoping their endless problems with their drives simply disappearing from the systems (Google is your friend) would be cured when they moved away from the Sandforce controllers, but apparently not. Save yourself a ton of grief, spend a little more money, and buy the incredible and indestructible Samsung which works PERFECTLY with MacBook Pros and everything else.
Summary: Cannot really comment on the usability because the drive I received was defective, to be fair it is the risk you take with all SSD's and I was given a full refund, but I do not blame OCZ as the risk is present with every SSD company. Quick response and full refund, thankyou.
