Summary: On and off issues with this drive. I have had issues where this drive won't even show up in BIOS. After messing around with it for a couple of months it was running fine then one morning my PC crashed and again BIOS would not detect the drive. This time seems to be permanent and the drive is dead. I will update this review when/if I get decent updates from OCZ tech support and see how well they honor the warranty.
works well when it worked but ultimatly has reliablity issues.

Summary: purchased this September 5, 2013 and as of today the refurbished one i received has finally died and i dont think i can RMA this one again to get a replacement. Worked well when it worked but i bought two of these to raid and both had to be RMA'd. i used this as the OS drive in my media PC and failed to be recognized when i rebooted it last night (7/22/2014). Pretty crapy IMO. not gona buy from OCZ again. 3 stars for their easy RMA procedure.
Summary: When I began to have a problem with this drive, I approached the manufacturer. It is 2 years into a 5 year warranty. Without looking at it I am being told it was user abuse...HUH? They won't issue an RMA. I realized the data corruption was likely do to a manufacturing defect in the Sata connector...it fits snugly but doesn't clip. The fact they won't issue an RMA is appalling, Just look at it to make a determination. Shame on them.
Summary: It has all of the things I love about hardware: It works fast, and it doesn't break. I was a bit apprehensive about purchasing OCZ after their restructuring, but they build a solid product. This is my 3rd SSD from them, and have had zero issues.
Summary: While this drive was amazingly fast when I fist installed it, it died totally within 3 months. I attempted an RMA with OCZ and they simply stopped responding to me. They are a sham of a company, I tried again recently to return the item, again they don't even acknowledge me at all. With companies like Intel and Samsung selling SSD's there is no reason to ever by a OCZ SSD. Avoid!!!!!!!
Summary: I wasted 500USD on this drive, it died on me over one year of use. When I went to search for the numbers of their return rates and they are FRIGHTENING (taken from slashdot.org) : 2011:[...] Early 2012:[...] Late 2012:[...] Early 2013: [...] My drive is in the process of RMA'ing, however I fear I will just have headaches from now on. Make yourself a favor and learn from the mistakes of others.
Summary: its been more than 6 months that I'm using just try on my actual PC every day from morning till night and it works perfectly. ik but this drive as a replacement to my original hard drive and I have to say the speed and performance is not even comparable to that regular hard drives, if you ever want to get a SSD drive this would be the one to go. I love it.
Summary: Worked great and to description until after one month my system started getting blue screens of death. Though it might not be the cause, it completely died after 3 months while investigating what was causing the BSOD's. I'll take my business elsewhere with the next ssd i buy.
Summary: I was initially pretty excited about trying an SSD out. I did my research and was under the assumption that this OCZ Vector would be the best i could get for the money. When i first got the drive and plugged it in to my motherboard it initially had a little trouble getting recognized by the bios, but after a few re-starts and moving SATA cables around i got it to work, installed windows 8.1 on the SSD and used my HDD just mainly for storing large files.
