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.
Summary: These SSDs are really fast, and really great, when they're not failing. Unfortunately many of them shipped with a firmware that will just corrupt your OS on a sunny day and have you raging out hard. In total, via work or personal, I've overseen the purchase of 4 of these.
Summary: This Solid state drive is fast, and I've been very impressed (5-star impressed) with it up until this week. I've had this for almost 9 months, and it's went and died on me. It has a 5-year warranty, so I'm not too upset about it, but it doesn't deserve over a 3-star regardless.
Defective product (buggy initial firmware) and poor support

Summary: Pros: Worked really great when it worked... Cons: HDD made it less than 1 week. SSD died and not longer detected. Requested an RMA through OCZ. My RMA was acknowledged and item was sent in for RMA with tracking#.
Summary: I bought several of these for testing. Out of a handful one failed after approximately 3 months. Died from one moment to the other - no chance of data retrieval. So open up the support ticket which leads to a first session of troubleshooting until you have convinced the other party that the drive is...
Summary: Installed this drive on my 2nd Gen i7 laptop one year ago. Performancewise, I'd give it 5 solid stars. Windows boots ultra fast, programs open faster. You simply don't want to use another computer once you have this.
Summary: This drive was awesome to start. I never had an SSD before. Within a month it died for no reason. I will turn this review to a 5 when I get the drive replaced by warranty. Besides the drive dying it was an awesome little bugger.
SUPER fast, but after only 10 months my computer ...

Summary: SUPER fast, but after only 10 months my computer screen freezes and the drive stops working. I take it out, plug it in and it wont even recognize in bios or boot up. Now I have to send it back to the manufacturer for repair.

Summary: This OCZ Vector Series is an internal solid-state drive features the new Indilinx controller, and some strong performance, but it's one of the more expensive SSDs in its category. Pros: + Strong overall performance, particularly in random workloads.
Summary: This SSD lasted roughly 530 days before it died. The drive is no longer recognized, even tried different SATA ports on the MB. Keep a constant backup of your data, regardless of using SSD or spinning-disk HDD.
