Customer Reviews of OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX80G 2.5" 80GB SATA II Solid State Drive (SSD)
So Fast... until it died... less than 24 hours3/2/2011
This drive was screaming fast in my laptop I use for work. I used it for about 2 hours, then I enabled Win7 bitlocker and used it for another 6 hours after that. Everything was going fine, I rebooted a few time to show my friends how fast it was. Then I put the laptop into standby, came back a few hours later and that was it. Green light turns on, but I got nothing!
Drive Died after 24 hours of use2/27/2011
I bought 2 of these drives and both drives died the very next day. Buy.com replaced the first drive and sent a replacement and again after 1 day of use the drive was no longer detected in the bios or in any computer I put it in. Shame on OCZ for such poor quality products.
I just got one of these drives because of the SF-1222 controller and awesome advertised speed. What i got was not what i ordered. I got one of the newer models with the 25nm crap. Needless to say, after hours of researching why my drive seemed slow i discovered this dirty trick that OCZ is pulling. 170 read and 59 write! That is not what i paid for!!!!! So far this has been a BAD experience with my first SSD!
