Super fast boot times. Super fast BRICK

Robert Palmer, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: I needed to upgrade my PC, and this was an excellent choice for doing that. My windows exp. scale hits 7.4 with this SSD. (UPDATE) After less than 3 months performing flawlessly, it bricked on me last night... No warning or signs of impending failure like you would get from a normal HDD.

Dont buy this drive if you're running windows 8

Cory N., Newegg
10 July 2013
  • Pros: None yet
  • Cons: This drive does NOT work well with windows 8 at all. Especially on ASRock and ASUS motherboards. I would not recommend anyone buy this if you plan to run an OS or boot off this drive into Windows 8

RIP: 1/2011 to 4/2013

I really get it!, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: My Vertex2 lasted 2 years and 4 months. It died a couple of months ago during a Windows Update installation. It went into the infamous 'panic lock' mode and no longer showed up in the BIOS. I guess I was pretty lucky in that mine lasted over 2 years. I was happy with my drive while it worked. I expect an SSD to fail at some point, but I think 2 years is too short of a lifespan. 3-4 years is more acceptable. Thus, I think it deserves 3 stars.

Never buy OCZ again

Max, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: Dead without warning after a year of minor usage just for documents. All my job, study and all my life gone with it. I had the latest firmware on it but it doesn't help much.
