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.

I hate to do a bad review like others but I've ...

  • 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.

Died after 2 months, possibly caused BSOD's

Biermark, Amazon

  • 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.

OCZ suggested sending my 128GB Vector back to them for a RECOMMENDED firmware update

Ernie_07, Amazon
15 May 2014
  • Summary: After receiving and email encouraging me to update firmware from (factory) version two to version three, I downloaded the OCZ Toolbox and attempted the upgrade. During the process, I clicked up Update Firmware and was immediately presented with a message declaring that no update was required. A call to Tech Support resulted in several suggestions such as try a different SATA port, a different motherboard or send the drive to us for a firmware update.

Worked great - for one year...

  • Summary: I installed this as my OS drive on a brand new PC build last March. About a month ago, I started noticing some anomalies. Today, it crashed completely - the BIOS can no longer see it. Looking at some of the other reviews, it looks like I'm not alone in this situation. I can't recommend this drive, no matter how fast, since it's longevity and durability are in serious doubt now.

Drive failed after one year of home use.

Ron, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: It worked great for 11 months. It was really fast. but at 11 months,got a few errors with good recovery at boot up. A month later it crashed and could not recover. A backup at first sign of trouble saved me. I went back to a mechanical drive.

Stability problems.

Alejandro Tovar "Ale Tovar", Amazon
5 November 2013
  • Summary: Don't get me wrong the product is fast however after a 5 months of use, the SSD died on me. It seems i was not the first one to have this problem. (no problem on the RMA). Stability is very important to me, even if the speed of the product is great if the stability is not good then the product is not good. Thanks.

I Could Like It If It Worked

Mss'ty, Amazon
8 October 2013
  • Summary: Infant mortality. Ran just long enough to load the OS and start downloading updates to the OS from Microsoft and it died. From that point on it wouldn't show up in the bios or anywhere else. Other problems I have had with this series of SSDs is that they do not show up during OS install if you have two of them configured to be used as part of a raid. Thank you Amazon for letting me RMA it, no questions asked.

Very Unstable

Chazz Chitwood, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: I've had this hard-drive since December of 2012. In the time between then and July 2013, it managed to completely corrupt the system files and recovery partition a whole seven times before merrily becoming absolutely dead by the end of July. I'm waiting to see if OCZ support can do anything about it, and I hope I just had a faulty unit and this isn't indicative of the product- If I hear back with any promising news, I'll update this review accordingly.
