OCZ Warranty Better Than the Product

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: The drive did fail but when I contacted OCZ support I was quickly and efficiently taken care of and after a few back and forth email strings I was able to get a refund for my drive at current market value AND they provided me with a shipping label, I rate their customer care very high and appreciate...
Pros: Drive was fast at first and had a good build to it
Cons: The drive failed just after a year of use, it was always a bit slow to boot, and when originally purchased it was much more expensive then other ssd's
Summary: Latest firmware update is supposed to fix some of the problems with failing drives. RMA process was painless. I received a new Vector 150 240GB SSD as a replacement. Total time for RMA was about 2 weeks. I did have to pay for shipping but that was a minor thing.
Pros: Very fast SSD Much improved RMA support from OCZ from my experience Came with 3.5" adapter and screws if you need them
Cons: Died after a little over a year Started failing right before the new firmware was released
Summary: This drive has made my pc experience a lot better, this SSD is very reliable. Had some problems at first after an power outage but a firmware release fix that. It also came bundled with FarCry 3, good game. In all a good drive, fast and stable
Cons: Drive is VERY easy to kill with improper shutdown. Original drive was insta-killed by asus overclock utility. This is a common issue, when you use the auto overclock utility provided with asus motherboards, when its starts overclocking, it cuts power to the board, with out going thru a proper shu...
Summary: I have 2 of these in my build and have not had any issues with them. they are fast as far as ssd's go.hope some day that the price per bite comes down.so those who want their system to load faster, an ssd is the way to go paired w/ a mechanical hard drive.ocz is another item I prefer for system...
Summary: All of the reviews talking about drive failures after a few months are worrying me but I decided to take a chance because it was pretty cheap. We shall see how well this drive does in after a couple of months.
Pros: My computer boots in about 10 seconds. Half of that time is the bios.
Cons: OCZs rebate program is bull. You have to pay $2 for it to be "expedited" or else you have to wait 8-10 weeks for your rebate card.
Summary: I WILL come back to this site and comment on the product if I have other future problems. My professional reviews will be available on my One Prime Market blog.
Pros: I tested this drive on an Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge motherboard. One with an i3 2100 3.1 Ghz and then a Pentium Dual Core G series 3.1 Gz. Windows boots in 4 seconds on both boards - about 6 seconds faster than the best i5 systems I built with the LEADING competitor. (terms of service does NOT ...
Cons: My first experience with this drive was on an ECS H61H2-TI motherboard.. which is a super mini-ITX board for super micro cases like the Inwin K2. I was annoyed by how Windows installation freezes after the main install reboot. I spent hours testing other hard drives and had ZERO issues. I solved ...
Summary: I'm thoroughly satisfied with the product, and, if the current one craps out on me I'll just get another one. I really like the speed of the technology :)
Pros: Lightning fast Seems to be holding up well, after the first RMA; see cons Not sure what else there's to say.. hehe
Cons: Had to RMA the first one, it stopped working after a week +/- By stopped working, I mean it wouldn't hold data correctly. On a side note, while the second one received seems to be working fine.. My computer is doing funny things. I know my way around a computer having built the one it went into, ...
