Summary: I installed this drive in my Alienware m14x r2 laptop and it worked really fast, 7.9 on Windows score, but after 6 months when I booted up my laptop, the computer stuck at the bios, after 30 seconds the bios does not recognized the ssd, I get another ssd from ocz warranty and the drive arrived doa, I asked for a refund and they gave it to me, I will no try any luck with OCZ
Summary: This drive is probably awesome, but after a couple of days in the computer it began to malfunction. I later learned from OCZ techsupport that the drive doesn't like my MBP July 2009 with Nvidia chipset...at all. Currently using a Hybrid SSD Drive from Seagate without any trouble.
Summary: I've had this drive for three months. I needed to switch connections in my computer and when I did the interface to the drive detached. No other damage, not even a scratch, just looks like the interface was not securely fastened in manufacturing. OCZ refused to honor their warranty. I only asked that they secure the interface and send it back. I didn't ask for a refund or a replacement. Only that they reattach the interface properly, and OCZ refused.
Summary: I'm on my 2nd drive with firmware v1.5 (latest as of this writing) and it's not looking good. My first drive failed in about 28 days, the second within 4 days. What the failure looks like: If you have S.M.A.R.T. monitoring you may see some alarms about corruption as a first sign. The unit appears to work fine for a little longer but out of nowhere your computer will freeze with the HD light stuck on.
Summary: I am updating this post after having gone through two replacement units and many hours of support. Both units that OCZ shipped me failed within hours. I will say that the product manager at SuperMediaStore was very helpful in getting me replacements and none of this was their fault... OCZ just has problems with this product. ... I placed my order two weeks ago based on the "in stock, N left" status...
Summary: My 515 Gbyte Vertex 4 drive failed within the warranty period. I requested a replacement directly from OCZ, which took two weeks to process and finally they delivered a new replacement drive. The replacement drive was dead out of the box! I am still waiting for this replacement to be replaced. This does not say a lot for the reliability of these drives.
Summary: ..till the day it just died. I used it for like 3 months and one day my computer just wouldn't boot. Amazon immediately offered to replace it, but since there would be no restocking for 30 days, it offered me a full refund. I don't know if I was unlucky or the whole line is faulty. Wouldn't really recommend it as no one likes to wake up one morning and find out their files and OS settings are gone.
