Amazing at first, now dead/locked

Marcus F., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • 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. This a good entry-level SSD, don't misunderstand, but I lost a significant amount of data due to an inability to reset the lock on the drive.
  • 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

died after 3 months usage. getting RMA

Brennan W., Newegg
24 October 2014
  • Summary: Getting RMA. Quality help from OCZ tech support.
  • Pros: Died after 3 months usage. This was a refurbished product so I'll go easy on this one...but since it's a product with a manufacturer recertification stamp of approval I won't ignore the false premises of stability they claim. I will say that OCZ does make the fastest drives for consumer and enterprise markets but dang do they need to work on their controller and firmware stability. Great sustained write speeds and IOPS AS well. Price was great when I bought it..now pr...
  • Cons: unreliable. Dies after 3 months usage Current price is a rip off at $500

Good drive but it failed after one year

CHRISTOPHER S., Newegg
23 October 2014
  • Pros: It's a decently fast SSD. Came with a mounting bracket for desktop 3.5 inch bay.
  • Cons: I started noticing corrupted files less than one year after installation. But all diagnostic software, SMART, etc. said the drive was fine. Then it turned into a brick just after one year. I'm glad I purchased a 2-year "recertified replacement plan" (and keep regular backups).

Fast for Months

Alex B., Newegg
14 October 2014
  • Pros: Very easy to install, converted from HDD boot drive. Murdered the old boot times.
  • Cons: Started throwing Disk errors after 3 months, is no longer usable after 6. Looks like most of the con reviews started popping up shortly after I purchased it. :(

Failed twice in the first year.

  • Summary: I'm an OCZ fan since the early days. They are known among computer enthusiasts who build their own systems. Memory, Power supplies, overclocking and all that. Then, when the SSD emerged, they pushed hard to be the leader - and they were certainly the biggest name in SSD storage. Two years ago, i converted all my computers to use SSD, mostly the OCZ Agility series.

Travis, Amazon

  • Summary: I hate to do a bad review like others but I've lived with OCZ a long time as they have been the underdogs and always innovating (ocz revo) I own 4 of these 2 died of which 1 was recovered and the other sent back to ocz. (They at first wanted me to debug junk but after I said no they replaced it no questions, so support is 4 out of 5!) My revo lasted forever as well as my agility it might just be the vector 128 with issues. 2 instead of 1 star as it is hella fast!!

Beware there are better manufacturers of SSD drives out there.

Paul Thomas, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • 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.
