Cannot Recommend

Brian M., Newegg
25 February 2014
  • Summary: I used these drives in different machines and for different uses. Some were solely for OS and programs, while others were used for installing PC games onto. All storage were handled by traditional hard drives. I suppose their value comes down to each individual.
  • Pros: The speed of SSD drives are great. I have gone from around a 30-40 seconds boot time with traditional 7200rpm hard drive disks, to less than 10-15 seconds (this time is from pressing the power button to being within Windows with all programs loaded).
  • Cons: Though they are fast, they are also fairly fast to their grave. I have purchased 4 OCZ 60 GB SSD since Oct 2010 (1 Vertex Series, 1 Vertex Turbo, 1 Agility Series 1, and 1 Agility Series 3). Of those, 1 died within warranty, which I was able to get RMA through OCZ; this process was fairly easy an...

Great after almost 2 years

Anonymous, Newegg
1 September 2011
  • Summary: After my experience with this drive, I bought a 50 GB Vertex LE (OCZSSD2-1VTXLE50G 2.5" 50GB) in May of 2010 and have not been as happy with it. The second drive appears to be resonsible for my OS "pausing" (all apps become non-responsive for about 30 seconds) frequently.
  • Pros: Fast and reliable. I don't usually write reviews because I feel that people give their feedback too soon and don't get a chance to experience all the pros and cons before they share their thoughts. However, I bought this drive in December of 2009 and it's been working GREAT since day one.
  • Cons: Can't think of one.

  • Summary: This drive cost me $239 on 2/10/2010. Now Aug '11, its dead. Same reports as others. Windows crashing, drive no longer detected in bios. I was under the impression that ssd drives once past their write cycle limit were no longer usable.
  • Pros: Fast Died within warranty
  • Cons: Died Expensive

User Review

  • Pros: Fast, crazy fast. 2 eggs for that.
  • Cons: It died after 1 year and 1 month of service, like others have reported. Windows 7 started having explorer crashing, then the machine froze and nothing could be done to unfreeze it. Now the drive doesn't show up in the BIOS at all. I like the opportunity to go out and buy the latest and greatest t...

Good While it Lasted

Felicia H., Newegg
5 April 2011
  • Pros: Great fast drive, so it gets two eggs. What more is there?
  • Cons: It died after 1 year and 1 month of service, like others have reported. Being new technology and such, I don't expect them to last forever as standard hard drives sometimes seem to, but just over a year is a little short. Windows 7 Pro x64 started having explorer crashing, then the machine BSOD'd...

Perfect OS Drive

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Once Vertex 3 arrives (in a month) price should drop some more.
  • Pros: Quick Quick Quick Has Firmware Update Now a bit Quicker I Installed Windows 7 64bit on it and use my other WD Drive as storage. I've managed to load Windows in 15 secs from Startup screen to Desktop. Have noticed a big difference in all programs and games.
  • Cons: Its only 60 GB

Fast... when it was working

Anonymous, Newegg
14 March 2011
  • Summary: Waiting to hear back from OCZ's rma department before I sell the replacement OCZ drive for an Intel SSD.
  • Pros: Plenty fast. Makes spinning drives feel like youre moving at a snails pace.
  • Cons: Worked great for 13 months then failed completely. No chance of data recovery as compared to a spinning disk. Now that reliability data is available, OCZ seems to have some of the highest drive failure rates.
