Died in two years

Violin I., Newegg
8 March 2015
  • Summary: It only lasted 2 years.
  • Pros: The price was very good when I bought it - Black friday sale. The storage size was decent back in 2012.
  • Cons: It started slowing down after a year. The disk just died. I bought it on 11/22/2012 and today is 09/03/2015. So it lasted about 2 years and 3 months. This drive was on a desktop machine running Windows 8.1 and wasn't used too often because I mainly use my Laptop. I also had a regular HDD for file...

Reliability issues

Daniel M., Newegg
13 February 2015
  • Summary: Decent customer support until you ask for a replacement.
  • Pros: Good price Fast
  • Cons: I've had this drive for some time now. In the years that i've had it I have probably only used it 1/3 of the time. Within the first 4 months it crashed and i had to flash the firmware to get it to work again. I called OCZ and they gave me the impression that this was very common with this drive. ...

Problem SSD/Then RMA'd

Len J., Newegg
3 October 2014
  • Summary: Should have RMA'd the SSD at start. Glad I had kept 1st set of details and RMA Ticket Number. OCZ did not want to honor warranty when it finally 'bit the dust'. Replacement SSD has run flawlessly for the last 2+ years.
  • Pros: Fast! Faster running at SATA2 speeds than regular HDD running at SATA3 speeds.
  • Cons: Would only be recognized as SATA 2.0 (SATA 300) from the start... Started RMA process, but couldn't force myself to go back to std. HDD - SSD still so much faster than SATA 3.0 (SATA 600). A year later, the SSD started having errors & crashing Win7. Had to put up a fight to get replacement.

Fast but died quickly and warranty service is horrible

Ron Michael Zettlemoyer, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: The drive was nice and fast for about 13 months, running on a Mac Pro desktop that was up almost 24/7. Then it completely died one evening; couldn't read anything from it at all. It took about 3 days to get an RMA number from OCZ via their web support.

Good while it lasted

Marika O., Newegg
20 February 2014
  • Pros: The drive was simple to install, worked right out of the box, fit with relatively little tinkering into my case, and was nice and speedy. Initial Windows install went in under 10 minutes
  • Cons: And it died on me last night. I thought it might just be a Windows Update screwup, but not even bios sees it. It's dead, Jim.

Happy Friggin' New Year

Steven W., Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Summary: Probably going to go with a Samsung for my replacement.
  • Pros: -Fast boot
  • Cons: It died after having it for 14 months. Just yesterday, it started having BSOD and Error Loading OS. I only load my OS on the SSD so I figured a quick wipe and reinstall would solve my problem, but it did not.
