Do not buy

Donald W., Newegg
5 April 2015
  • Pros: SSD's are really fast but are they worth it?
  • Cons: I bought this in 2013 and it's the second OCZ I've owned and the second to go bad. One is bad luck, two in a row it just a junk product. Moving on!

OCZ Warranty Better Than the Product

Nelson G., Newegg
31 March 2015
  • Summary: OCZ will make the drive right with a refurbished one or a total replacement, I like that! How is the expression, beat me up but I still come back.
  • Pros: Purchase OCZ products strictly for the WARRANTY, I purchased four of these drives noted above. One of the four has now been replaced three times this was after the companies assets were purchased by Toshiba. The other three drives are still out in the field and have not given any problems.
  • Cons: Company "TOSHIBA" I feel firmly will fix these drives before the sale but until then, purchase the drive for the WARRANTY coverage only and not the quality. I purchase at different times many different priced SSD's and can only say I have not found any great correlation of the change in MTBF by p...

  • Summary: I was hurt shortly after purchase, but shoulder the OCZ support as they have changed the hard drive smoothly, just asked me purchase information and the damage and I have changed the same covering them spending a year and a half later, the guarantee 5 years is real.

Fast but unreliable

Ryan F., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Pros: When it works, it's fast, as a SSD should be.
  • Cons: It is very unreliable. Almost like clockwork, it has crashed on me about every 3 months since I bought it, requiring a full format in order to reinstall the OS. Luckily I have enough redundancy on my storage HDDs that it isn't a big loss, but they are meant for storage and I hate having to use th...

Failed at almost 2 years

Michael D., Newegg
16 January 2015
  • Summary: Going to attempt sending it in for Warranty - I'll update this review if they replace it.
  • Pros: Was good while it lasted.
  • Cons: Failed at 1 year 9 months. Complete failure (after a few weeks of errors) - unrecognized in any computer I test it in.

Two have now died on me... grr.

Rebecca V., Newegg
3 January 2015
  • Summary: Hopefully I can still return these. Extremely disappointed in OCZ. If the product doesn't work with the predominant OS, well... grr.
  • Pros: Worked well when they worked. Very fast until they started dropping like flies.
  • Cons: Dead. Bought two of these back in July '13. The first one died within a few months. Second one just died when Windows 8.1 tried to fix drive errors. Neither boot or Windows recognizes either drive. Very frustrating. Enough to turn me back to Vista on my Velociraptor.

fast, bricked due to firmware

Garrett W., Newegg
17 December 2014
  • Summary: Just submitted RMA request to OCZ. If they screw up the deal I will update this. If all goes smooth I probably won't bother. Use the flathead screws to mount the drive in the caddy, the rounded head screws to mount the caddy in the tower.
  • Pros: Fast, small, comes with 3.5"caddy. 5 year warranty. OCZ support seems pretty good.
  • Cons: If you don't upgrade to firmware version 3.0 it is likely the drive will fully brick without warning. This happened to me after 11 months of use, as I missed the firmware update notice a few months ago.

Amazing at first, now dead/locked

Marcus F., Newegg
11 December 2014
  • Summary: During a routine Windows 7 Update shutdown process, received a blue-screen-of-death error. Resulted in a panic-locked 2.5" brick. Will not be purchasing OCZ products again since I can't RMA. Replacing with Samsung 250GB 840 Evo like I was told to buy the first time.
  • Pros: Extremely fast compared to your run of the mill non-ssd storage. Price ($124 when I bought it 1/2014)
  • Cons: High failure rate Unrecoverable data
