Fast... but a failure at just over 3 years

Ross B., Newegg
4 August 2014
  • Pros: Drives are fast. I ran 2 of them in RAID-0... and, thankfully, also had said RAID-0 backed up on a separate volume.
  • Cons: One of the disks failed with no warning after 3 years and 3 weeks. I'll check on a warranty replacement, since it's just barely over 3 years, but I'm not holding my breath, since it was a 3-year warranty.

Failed in 40 months

Colby O., Newegg
16 February 2014
  • Summary: My desktop system use of light to medium. Loosing the OS drive is a much bigger pain that loosing a backed up data drive. Shucks.
  • Pros: Silent, FAST, capacity to comfortably hold Windows 7 OS.
  • Cons: Failed in 3 years 4 months.

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.

Very Slow Shipping, but Fast Drive

Jason H., Newegg
24 September 2012
  • Summary: UPS to USPS shipping is very very slow - only choose Egg Saver shipping if you've got lots of time - UPS ground is 2 days from NJ to VA every time. Make a boot thumb drive for upgrading the firmware on the drive - make sure you've got network adapter drivers on your USB flash drive build.
  • Pros: Fast SSD for SATA II and a very nice upgrade for older systems.
  • Cons: 3 out of 10 (30%) failure rate of the Vertex 2 series drives in just over a year. Newegg's saver shipping has taken 10 days so far to get from NJ to VA. T/n says it's out for delivery, but it was not in the mailbox today. OCZ's email based RMA service is slow as well - ask a question, wait a day ...

Jose N., Newegg
17 September 2012
  • Pros: The hard drive performed as expected while it work. Quite. Fast.

Died after less than 2 years

Bo P., Newegg
26 August 2012
  • Summary: I found that I cannot live with a regular harddrive now so I will purchase another SSD to replace this one, perhaps not an OCZ one though.
  • Pros: Fast. It cuts the boot time for my windows 7 system from 1 min to about 10 s.
  • Cons: I purchased from newegg in Jan 2011, and now (Aug, 2012) it starts to get random r/w errors to an extend that windows would freeze randomly and re-installation would fail.

Dead after 6 months

Brandon H., Newegg
27 June 2012
  • Summary: I was running Windows 7 64 Pro with all the recommended SSD settings I found online. I never filled it up past half way at any point and allowed windows to run idle to erase any deleted portions of the drive. I hope I can still get a replacement through OCZ.
  • Pros: I loved the performance while it worked.
  • Cons: It died in 6 short months.

User Review

Kyle H., Newegg
25 June 2012
  • Summary: Used the SSD daily for more than a year with general usage - was used as a drive for general applications and for the OS. Computer would no longer boot one day and couldn't find the windows install, BIOS no longer recognized the drive in the SATA port.
  • Pros: Fast, worked great, no real problems until failure and was a significant improvement over the standard platter drives I had been using.
  • Cons: Failed after 15 months of use.
