The one star reviews are believable.

Frederick J. Haab, Amazon
7 November 2014
  • Summary: Believe the other reviews... I tried to use this to bring some life into an old laptop. I recently built a new desktop - with SSD for the first time - and it was screaming fast. I have this old laptop, now nearly ten years old, and the hard drive died. I thought I'd get some pep into it by reinstalling the OS on an SSD. I'm fairly saavy, tried to installed a lightweight version of Ubuntu (lxle 12.04), and while the install went OK, it would not boot.

Terrible customer service

Dennis C. Christian, Amazon
19 September 2013
  • Summary: Received drive, installed drive in array. Within 6 months it failed. I could not find my receipt for purchase, they REFUSED to RMA the faulty drive. I am not sure it matters how or where I bought the thing, it failed they should replace it. I will NEVER purchase another OCZ product again. Good luck.

  • Summary: This is crap. I formatted and still does not work. I may have gotten a bad unit. Stick with more reputable company such as OWC and Crucial.

  • Summary: Amazon really should stop selling this absolutely horrible product, Mine died suddenly too. I'm going to RMA the thing and use a New Crucial instead;The OCZ I get will be tossed aside, DO NOT buy this nor any other OCZ's worthless products.

Not Recommended

JOEL P., Newegg
29 August 2012
  • Summary: I hope the replacement is more reliable. Overall, I would have preferred a std hard disk over the hassle with this SSD.
  • Pros: Fast but not SATA III
  • Cons: Unreliable and difficult to perform firmware upgrades. I bought this in Sept 2011. Since then it often would require Windows scandisk to scan and fix the disk upon boot. Twice, it was not readable and required re-installation. Today, the disk was not recognizable at all and I am RMAing it OCZ. Fortunately, I keep a full Windows disk image backup updated weekly, or I'd be $crewed.

After 1 year, I have to recommend against OCZ drives at all.

justinb138, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: We ordered 5 of these for the office. Of the 5, 3 have failed within their first year (not recognized in BIOS after a blue screen) and had to be RMA'd. The other 2 haven't been installed yet. All had the latest firmware updates done (easy with this drive, not so much with the other OCZ drives). What we saved by going with these over something like the Intel drives we've easily lost in hours restoring/re-installing software on the machines with failed drives.

Died after 2 days

Raid El-Dahr, Amazon
6 July 2012
  • Summary: Don't buy this. Mine died after 2 days of usage. Tons of people are complaining on-line about their Vertex Plus SSD dieing in a short period of time due to faulty firmware. OCZ was offering a mail in rebate for this a while ago. This was only a trick to get you to cut out the UPC code and make it difficult to return. I ended up returning my whole HTPC at the time and lost close to 100$ doing that.

Review update - drive is completely kaput

John W., Newegg
15 June 2012
  • Summary: Will be sending in for RMA replace. Goes without saying I will never buy an OCZ drive nor will I ever recommend any one buy an OCZ drive.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Drive completely died after 9 months in. First the corruption issues, then waiting for a firmware fix, and now it is finally dead after 9 months of ownership.
