1.0 out of 5 stars Purchased two of these - both of which failed, 31 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: OCZ VTX450-25SAT3-128G Vertex 450 128GB 7mm 2.5 inch SATA 3.0 Internal Solid State Drive (Personal Computers)
I had heard bad things about OCZ in the past, but assumed these problems (mainly with firmware I think) had been sorted out long ago.
So I bought 2 of the 128GB Vertex 450 SSD's on the basis of their performance. The 1st never worked properly and failed completely after about 2 days.
The other one has just failed about 3 weeks after purchase.
I will never touch OCZ again for SSD's.

I too bought 2 of these SSDs based on the supposed performance and for a few weeks everything was fine. Running very well; boot time and general running speed was great. After about 2 weeks the drive that I was running windows on failed completely. I will not buy anything from OCZ again.

I bought one from amazon and had it fail within a few weeks of installing it - which unfortunately for me was after the 90 day warranty that amazon supplies. I'm in Australia and after contacting OCZ i was asked courier the SSD to them... which I did. I got a new (maybe reconditioned - I have no idea) one back and it died within two weeks... I emailed and told them I had never been so disgusted with a product in my entire life... There customer support were very nice and professional and told me to send it back again and it would be replaced with a "really good one". I haven't bothered.. it cost me nearly $300 for the item than another $80 to courier it to them once... I decided to call it quits as another $80 felt like throwing good money after bad... I'm both sorry and pleased to read your review... sorry for your difficulty but pleased that I'm not the only one. The SSD was very fast, windows started in half the time, so maybe i'll try another brand after I save up, because lets face it - a SSD is not a small item to buy.
