Failed Days Before Warranty Expired

Gregory M., Newegg
6 April 2014
  • Summary: This is the fourth SSD I've owned from OCZ. The first was an Agility 3, then a Vertex 3, and finally the Vertex that I have in my custom-built desktop (great drive!). This is the first and only recert/refurb drive I've purchased, and I expected better of OCZ. I have to double-check all dates, but I think we're barely within the warranty period - hopefully OCZ will replace this drive.
  • Pros: Bought this last October to give to my son for Christmas. I thought it would perk up his old Gateway Core 2 laptop, and it did - he was ecstatic when his machine booted up in 25 seconds. Used Acronis True Image to clone his original drive. The machine was much more responsive - programs open up almost instantly. I bought
  • Cons: Unfortunately, it took me 3 months (after Christmas) to get around to installing this in his laptop. He got to enjoy it for two weeks, and then POOF! Nothing. Computer reports that there is no hard drive found, BIOS sees nothing on the SATA port. Removed the drive, installed in a USB dock, drive would not recognize. Reinstalled his old hard drive and he's back up and running again - but bmuch more slowly.

Can't trust this refurb

Chad K., Newegg
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Fortunately I installed this as a secondary drive for data storage. I've not experienced this with a drive before. It will allow a file to be opened but will often loose track of the file location later when it needs to save. I have a Google drive folder on it also that syncs with multiple computers and it's always searching for data to update that is no longer there. I'm thankful for the rock solid Samsung SSD as the primary drive. That's all I've got.
  • Pros: *Value price
  • Cons: *Drive constantly looses connection with OS. *Newegg won't return it since it's a questionable refurb. I guess $50 isn't so bad for a paper weight;)

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. Again fingers crossed that OZD will help take care of this defective drive Win8.1 Q9400 - (on a Corsair Hydro H55 w/twin 120 fans) PN5-Q DDR2 8GB GTX650ti HAF Case w/750W PS
  • 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 load. It finally died. That sucks. My HDD's lasted longer? I thought the benefit of a SSD was no moving parts therefore a longer lasting product? Somewhat disappointed. I just e...
