OCZ Vector 128GB review

 

A smaller capacity SSD that more than justifies its existence

Good sequential read/write performance ; Can match higher capacity SSDs in some benchmarks ; Fastest 128GB SSD we have tested so far

Loses out to higher capacity drives in other benchmarks

OCZ Vector 256GB review

 

Quite possibly the quickest SATA SSD we've ever laid data on

Excellent performance ; 4K write test best we've seen ; Same for Zip file decompression ; 5 year warranty

Samsung 840 faster in some tests

Great when they work

 

So I bought a OCZ Vector Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC VTR1-25SAT3-256G on 01/28/2013 and it worked great for a few months or so can't remember for sure how long it worked, then one day it just dies.. nothing.. the computer would not even read that...

Fast like All ssd

Die Die and lets hope for one that don't die this time!..

Died about 1 Year after purchase

 

I have used other OCZ products with no issue, I have a feeling that this drive is simply prone to errors.

It was fast when it worked.

Drive died abot a year after the purchase, only RMA'ing it now as I lost it for a while (it was still mounted in an old case)

OCZ Warranty Better Than the Product

 

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.

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...

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...

Two have now died on me... grr.

 

Hopefully I can still return these. Extremely disappointed in OCZ. If the product doesn't work with the predominant OS, well... grr.

Worked well when they worked. Very fast until they started dropping like flies.

Dead. Bought two of these back in July '13. The first one died within a few months. Second one just died when Windows 8.1 tried to fix drive errors. Neither boot or Windows recognizes either drive. Very frustrating. Enough to turn me back to Vista on...

Failed after 6 months

 

This SSD failed a little before 6 months old.Bought this early 2012 and it got put away and forgotten. I assumed by now, it would be out of warranty, but, website says a limited 5 year warranty at the time. Someone says they are only 3 years now., So...

Fast as anything else at the time- very satisfied with the speed Easy to install

Good service

 

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...

Drive was fast at first and had a good build to it

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

Data Corruption

 

I purchased two of these drives in Aug 2013. After data loss I've updated each to the latest firmware. Both were at V3 (the latest) about 3 months ago. One just died. OCZ Toolbox can see the drive, but can't do a secure erase. It hangs at 66% and...

Very fast. A very nice SSD drive when it works.

Data corruption and data loss. I normally go 2+ years without having to reinstall OS. I have two of these drives in two machines both running the OS. Both have required 3 reinstalls during the last year. One died at 13 months.
