Purchased 3 -- all failed

Dr. Mark Horridge, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought 3 -- all failed (unrecognized by BIOS) in a week. Without fuss, OCZ sent me replacements -- this time the ordinary OCZ Vertex 2 (not the Limited Edition). So far have not had time to see if the new ones work.

unreliable

Simple Simon, Amazon

  • Summary: I am presently on to my third drive, the first died within 24 hours and the second after ~ 3 months. The cost of ownership has also included shipping costs for the last replacement which was sent directly from San Jose (brokerage fees and tax - I live in Canada) even though I returned the defective drive to OCZ in Canada. The online RMA process was unexpectedly complex (OCZ required details of the motherboard/chipset/voltages etc). Turn around time was 3 weeks.

Bad start but fully satisfied

  • Summary: I bought this drive off of the market here on Amazon. It was a steal so when it arrived DOA I was disappointed but figured I'd just have to trade the money I saved for some of my time. It looks like OCZ had an unfortunate run of firmware when this drive came out, until 1.10 it seems there was a bug that caused low power modes to put the drives into panic mode which, to an end user, means a dead drive. Fortunately it seems I got my drive at just the right time.

Waste of time and money!

  • Summary: I've been building computers for years and after reading several tech site reviews, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and buy this ssd. I had really high hopes for this drive before I purchased, however user reviews on Newegg and Amazon are very negative citing alot of defects. I should have listened to the user reviews. The drive worked fine for a grand total of just 1 day! Now it is totally dead and doesn't even show up in the bios.

Look Elsewhere!

Devastation, Amazon
16 April 2010
  • Summary: Bought this drive and an OCZ Technology 60 GB Agility Series. The Agility 60GB has worked flawlessly, the 200 GB Vertex Limited Edition on is useless the first one was DOA the replacement lasted less then 15 days now it also is dead. I will see if I can get it to work but so far it is not looking good. I'm not a newbie ether, been building and repairing computers since the early 80's. Time to look elsewhere for a replacement.
