Summary: They should do a bloody recall on these drives.. I suspect nearly every one one of them will fail within the 5 year warranty period. I hope this drive kills their credability. To be fair though.. their email support is quite good..
Pros: Operated quickly, benchmarked as one of the fastest Vertex 4's based on other users benchmarks. Very happy chappy.. until it died that is.
Cons: Chip failure. Had a random reboot a couple of times.. never suspected the SSD. Then boom. DEAD. Never again OCZ. Bad components. Stick with Intel.. Crucial, Samsung..
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.
Summary: The drive performance is very good when you compare it to a standard HDD, it will make you computer fly, I installed it in a mac Book Pro. However a couple of months ago my computer started to show a slower behavior and it froze once in a while, finally the disk completely died.
Summary: 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 they could not process RMA's because OCZ had just been purchased by Toshiba so I had to wait another 3 weeks.

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.
