3 our of 4 DOA!

Steve C, Amazon
4 September 2013
  • Summary: I purchased 2 of these from Newegg that came sealed in the plastic factory packaging. One worked OK but the second one was completely dead! Newegg claims they don't take returns so Buyer Beware! They did exchange it for another one though, problem is the replacement only lasted 1 day! I installed Linux on it one day and it worked until the next day when it froze and wouldn't boot again! Now I have to send it back again and get another replacement!

This crap broke within the first month of use

David S., Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: Don't get me wrong, I loved it while it worked. I got this just for my OS and some of my editing programs (photoshop, after effects, premiere, etc) and EVERYTHING ran incredibly fast. A noticeably faster boot time of 10-15 seconds compared with the 2-4 minutes I now have to wait because this thing broke. It was in the perfect environment that it needed to be in to work as well as it could. And it stopped working. Without warning.

Died on me (again)

Michael Fruergaard Pontoppidan "Microsoft Bus..., Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: I've been pretty satisfied with this product. Easy to set up and ok performance. Then it died after about 6 month of usage. I'm using it in a media pc - so no heavy load, just some Windows Media Center TV playback/recording. OCZ replaced the disk within 3 weeks. The new disk ran for about a year before the same thing happened again. I just filled a RMA.

This was my 3rd OCZ 30GB Vertex SSD & They all are Horrible!!!

Travis Getche, Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: My very first PC I build myself I got one of these 30GB SSD thinking that it would work as a boot drive with only Windows 7 on it. But, 30GB is not enough space. So, I got another one so I could run them in RAID 0. Well that worked for about two weeks and one of them just kept crashing. I filled out a RMA an OCZ sent me a replacement. Then the other one would not show. I RMA that one to OCZ and again they sent me a replacement.

Waste of money and time!

  • Summary: "The SATA II SSD 2.5 Drive comes un-formatted. It is possible to format the drive ... within the Windows environment under MY Computer ..." Sounds easy. But, it doesn't work. I have spent hours searching the net looking for a way to format/get Windows Explorer to recognize the OCZ SSD. The OCZ Corporate site is no help. Save your self a lot of frustration and a lot of mony - forget SSDs in general and OCZ SSDs especially.

Tech Support is an Epic Failure

JJJ "JJ", Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: Purchased two of these guys. Ran in a Raid 0 for just over a year getting the performance I was expecting. Then one failed. Cannot be detected at POST. It just hangs. Had to request an RMA. I have gone thru 2 flash iterations. They arrived at 1.4 and I went to 1.5 and then to 1.6 a while later. I am now trying to flash my current one to 1.7 and the flash does not work. Hundereds of users complaining about the same 1.6 to 1.7 flash issues.

Blazing fast... until it died

HenryG, Amazon
16 August 2011
  • Summary: I had a glimpse of the raw speed this SSD offers for less than 10 minutes, until my Alienware M11x just froze after I was done Installing Windows 7. After I turned it off and on, I realized this expensive piece of hardware was dead. Completely dead actually, since every means of bringing it back to life, as instructed by the manufacturer's support forums, were tried and none of them worked.

Unreliable product with aweful tech support

JHH, Amazon
28 November 2010
  • Summary: I purchase this SSD (OCZSSD2-1VXY120G) from Amazon and it has not worked from the time I opened the box. I installed the drive into my laptop (ASUS UL80j) and attempted to run the ASUS restore disks. Although the restore went properly, the drive would not boot the laptop. The phone support for OCZ is virtually nonexistent. It was a horrible joke of menu madness, I never really reached a person/technician.

Worst. SSD. Ever.

MW, Amazon
27 September 2010
  • Summary: As far as SSDs go, you really can't get any worse than this. Yes, this performs like an SSD, which is mindblowingly better than an HDD. That's where the positives end. Most reviews here are comparing SSD performance to a standard HDD, which really isn't a fair comparison. The drive is slow. It's error prone (I'm a power user and bought a bunch of these for my home computers, and 2 have died within a year). OCZ support is pathetic, the RMA process took 3 weeks.

Received DOA... OCZ was ZERO help

Joe R., Amazon
14 July 2010
  • Summary: I anxiously awaited this product's arrival. I unboxed it, plugged it in, and it only showed 29.8gb (of 120gb that it should have shown). I called OCZ and they said "That is a bad controller. Just return it to the retailer". HORRIBLE SERVICE! A reputable company would have sent me a replacement using an advance RMA. But now I have to waste 2-3 weeks returning the item, waiting for a refund, then buying another one and waiting again. Except that I won't do that...
