Ryan P., Newegg
20 July 2014
  • Summary: disabled hibernate and hybrid sleep and system restore, did leave temporary internet files and page file on the drive. used the drive everyday. did a secure erase and reinstalled the os and after about 2 weeks it starts corrupting files, windows would require chkdsk to be run which after it "fixes"...
  • Pros: a little faster than a daily defragmented 10,000 rpm raptor drive and doesn't need to be defragmented, silent, no moving parts.
  • Cons: did have some firmware issues in the beginning, causing corrupted files, had an issue with drive not working in ahci till i did a secure erase, once had a locked drive issue, bought back in 9/11 died in 6/14. Raptor drive is still alive when ssd is not.

Worked great - until it stopped working

R Mays, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: Used this SSD to store my Windows OS and the important software - Photoshop, AutoCAD, Steam. The rest of the programs and all my files were stored on a normal hard drive. One day (a couple weeks after the warranty expired) it just stopped working.

Good until it dies suddenly

MIHAIL C., Newegg

  • Summary: _Damn Sandforces! Hope they fix them.
  • Pros: Good price/GB, fast when compared to a HDD
  • Cons: Died within 7 months with all my data on it (thank goodness for backups), even after upgrading to the newest firmware. RMA'd it, we'll see how the new one performs. Definitely need to have it in RAID1 if you use it as mission-critical system drive.

Good Performance, Questionable Reliability

Anonymous, Newegg
23 February 2012
  • Pros: I got this SSD during a one-day sale at Canada Computers for $100. Even at its current price, it is a very good deal for an SSD considering its capacity of 120GB. It's nice and fast, as expected from any SSD drive.
  • Cons: Disk Check errors always come up when using it as the boot drive for Windows 7. This has been tried and proven on several different computers and 3 different copies of Windows 7 64-bit. The error surfaces approximately 2-3 weeks into use. It should be noted that it is still usable and all, but th...

Works great... after a lot of hassle

D. Krans, Amazon
26 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the OCZ Vertex Plus to replace a failing hard drive in my wife's late 2007 Macbook3,1. The computer had no problem recognizing the drive, creating a partition, and installing Snow Leopard from the disc.

Reliable...so far

Greg M., Newegg
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Got this drive because the company was paying and linked this drive to buy...if I had my way I would have bought an Intel drive...I hope this lasts...so far, so good, but the other reviews don't put my mind at ease.
  • Pros: Price per gigabyte is fair for an SSD. Major reliability upgrade from a standard mechanical hard drive, which is why I purchased this for a laptop that is heavily mobile and bounces around in the passenger seat of a truck.
  • Cons: Didn't notice much performance upgrade from a standard 5400RPM drive...it's faster, but not a lot.

Overpriced At This Point

Brian B., Newegg
4 January 2012
  • Summary: Get a Vertex III
  • Pros: Works fine, been months now without issues. Updated to latest firmware when I first bought it. Fast enough
  • Cons: Overpriced, for another 20 you can get a 3rd gen Sata III with faster specs. Not sure why they keep the prices of these drives up so high. Seems 1/2 of them are bad to begin with..

Been reliable since firmware update

Seth P., Newegg
22 December 2011
  • Summary: It has been very stable since the latest firmware update was applied.
  • Pros: Price Reliable after Firmware Update
  • Cons: The drive corrupted a massive amount of data on two occasions. Each time it worked for about 2-3 weeks and then upon a reboot failed.
