Unreliable POS

MilesApartJF "Jarrod Lewis Fusco", Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: I'm currently in the process of RMAing the replacement of my original Vector that failed; meaning I've had two OCZ Vectors fail. If you like rebuilding your machine multiple times a year, then this SSD is for you. There is a reason OCZ is in bankruptcy proceedings.

Qi Chen, Amazon

Sketchy

idiotmyshkin, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: Dead after 3 months. When I got it and installed, it didn't want to format properly, citing I/O errors. I really didn't want to return it then, wanted to play mah games, and on the third day of trying I was able to get a partition, threw windows on it, and all was good. After about a month of regular use I noticed boot problems, having to use the startup recovery on almost every boot, and corrupt data.

Too many failures

Brian Morisette, Amazon
16 September 2013
  • Summary: I had 3 of these drives fail in sequence of both 128GB and 256GB in size. Seems like bad QC, bad chip run, or bad firmware. It wasn't until the 4th drive on an RMA return (not retail replace as the others had been) that I got a good working drive.

Fast but doesn't last forever

steven s., Newegg
12 September 2013
  • Summary: Need better quality control.
  • Pros: overall it great drive,fast, amazing proformance and got Farcry 3 with the purchase. It was awarded editer choice for these and other great reasons.
  • Cons: I deducted 4 eggs for unrelibility after month or so I got drive errors don't think you all are using quality parts. Please don't substitute quaility for little extra profit. I've had to re-installen windows 8 pro atleast 10 times since ive owned drive. After I watched linus tech tips from youtube decided to buy this drive, It does have great features in it design, but the parts are not mean't to last.

Well.. spoke too soon

Kyle R., Newegg
19 June 2013
  • Summary: Don't buy unless you enjoy losing your data, programs, etc. Buy something with more of a reputation. OCZ always has had trouble, and doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon.
  • Pros: Was fast when it worked.
  • Cons: I wrote a review on here 2 months after buying it praising this thing and 3 months in it failed. BIOS would not recognize the drive. Shame on you OCZ. Stop claiming your product has "ground breaking performance and reliability" when in fact, you're just the same joke of a company you have been in the past. I posted a thread on their forums and was told it is a support forum, you will see all types of failures here. It doesn't happen often. But here's a RMA website whe...

Increasingly unhappy

john w., Newegg
10 April 2013
  • Summary: RMA on the second on going out tomorrow. Takes forever to get to newegg, and then them getting it back is even slower.
  • Pros: Extremely fast for about a week. Top of the line on every platform.
  • Cons: Drive dies after about a week. Simply restarted the computer to a system error stating that I no longer had a windows OS present. Drive dies and is never again recognized in windows when you attempt to initialize. This has happened twice now.

I advice this SSD, so far everything is good for now august 2013 [edit] my ssd is not working anymore. this is a known problem about this product, my ssd stopped working after 6 months. i checked ocz's website, i tried to upgrade the firmware version but my ssd didnt accept to upgrade it. it simply rejected all the solutions.
