Failed in 3 years, like many

David A., Newegg
15 December 2014
  • Pros: My initial review was 5/5 back when I initially received the product. Worked fine while it worked...
  • Cons: Failed in three years. A lot of people have been having failures at around the three year mark. This item used to be 5/5 review score but the sheer number of failures have dragged it down. It was a tremendous pain when this thing failed. Funny how it failed right outside the warranty period.

Very Fast but....

Alex K., Newegg
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I've never had a product make such a significant boost to my computers speed than this SSD. Upgraded memory, Video Cards etc... SSD's are the way to go. I just hope that in my case they are ultimately more reliable.
  • Pros: Wow very fast, loads windows in 10minutes. Updates take forever but that's not the drives fault. Did I say it was fast.
  • Cons: Purchased in 2011, it took a few month's before I noticed it started to hang up on Windows loading. Figured it was a problem with the install. I did it again, again and again.... It would hang as the windows logo started to appear. Every time?? I learned to just let it sit. eventually it would lo...

Very nice when they're working... but unreliable.

Aphellyon, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: The simple breakdown... stupid fast compared to HDDs, but very unreliable. The not so simple breakdown... I got two of these and set them up in RAID 0 for my primary. Speed and near instant load times were incredible compared to my previous Raptor array.

Waiting for Manufacturer RMA

Harold L., Newegg
13 June 2013
  • Summary: OCZ gets a bad rap sometimes - I have had one successful RMA and one rejected rebate. Depending on the results of this RMA is my continued business with them.
  • Pros: Faster than hdd.
  • Cons: This particular unit seems to be cursed - OCZ has offered to replace my Vertex 2 with an Agility 3, with which I have used before and have, thus far, not had problems.

Starts out fast. But dies just like all my OCZ SSD's

Sergey K., Newegg
30 April 2013
  • Summary: too far from warranty.
  • Pros: Started out fast. Booted up in 10 seconds from post screen.
  • Cons: After about a month or two started freezing just like my other OCZ drive before the windows logo starts loading. Then after some firmware updates and reinstalling the OS, still windows 7 logo freezes before loading just like on last OCZ SSD. I lived with this for awhile, after one more firmware u...
