Summary: The drive ran admirably from Dec 2012 to July 2014. When the drive died it took my internal SATA cable with it costing me $40. After trying for 2 weeks to get an RMA from OCZ, I was denied despite providing total documentation for proof of purchase. I had bought a Vector 150 as a replacement, but I am now in the process of returning it. It is way too risky and expensive buying OCZ drives. I'm getting a Samsung.
Summary: So after 6 months of use the ssd decided to malfunction and it would no longer boot up or get recognize, i send the drive to the preferred OCZ data recovery company and guess what! the kind of failure this drive had was one of the worse you could get, nand controller burned, so now i need to pay 3K $ (yes 3000 us $) to do an attempt of recover my data. Do not buy this drive! stay away!

Summary: Ocz support is terrible. After submitting my RMA request I was told try to return it to where I had originally purchased it. When I could not do that they told me they could not process RMA's because OCZ had just been purchased by Toshiba so I had to wait another 3 weeks. They would not take returns but I'm sure they did not stop selling them.
Summary: I will make it short and clear : I bought this hard drive from my machine, it lasted 8 months and died on me. I asked for a replacement and, after I tried to troubleshoot it with the help of their technical support, obtained and RMA number. I shipped it (do I have to precise that I had to pay for the shipping) and OCZ contacted me to offer me a smaller hard drive (120 Go). I refused and they ended up sending an equivalent replacement... refurbished.
Summary: The drive shipped very quickly. I used it to back up a dead hard drive and then transfer the data onto my new laptop. Apparently there has been some confusion as to which adapters will work with the Vertex 4. I personally used an Anker SATA to USB 3.0 adapter that I also bought on amazon. It worked seamlessly with just plug and play operation, no drivers or software to mess with.

Summary: Very easy to installed, just like any other HDD drive. I've owned it for over 6 months now and haven't had any issues. It's also way quieter than the HDD I had. My OS loads so fast now, including programs that it has spoiled me, for I find traditional HDD drives to be slow and very tedious now. It even comes with a sticker that says "My SSD is faster than your HDD". lol.
Summary: Installed Windows 7 Pro. Boot time around 10 seconds! The OS is the only thing on this drive. Everything else is on a separate drive. I mean everything else. A 1 TB drive split into 4 partitions...Documents, Programs, Music photos etc. 4th partition not used yet. Great SSD Drive...just remember NEVER defrag a SSD.
Blazing Fast Solid State Drive, But Better Value to Be Found Elsewhere

Summary: I wanted to wait for a while after I had received my SSD before I reviewed it, as I believe a long-term ownership review can be just as, if not more, helpful than an instantaneous review. I received this SSD around Christmas, back when the 128GB version was only $95 (what a steal!) It is now late June, and I wanted to chime in with my thoughts on this drive. Let's start off with the positives; this drive is fast. Reeaallly fast.
Summary: My computer is a million times faster with this. I have a Macbook Pro, June 2012 (not Retina, maxed RAM to 16 GB) and my computer is crazy fast. So worth every penny, and it has the best warranty out there.
Summary: Purchased them back around Black Friday '12. Haven't needed to update firmware and no problems so far. Just under 1000 Mb/sec read with 2 of them in RAID-0 on an i7 3770k (not overclocked yet). In fact this was the fastest I've ever seen Windows install. I turned around for maybe 5 to 10 minutes after going through the config phase and it was done. Once you go with an SSD (even without RAID), you will never want to go back to gaming on old hard drives again.
