Experience: 1 Years
- Really fast drive
- Good warranty
- Until it won't start...
I have this SSD since 1 year and 1 or 2 months.
It really rocked my PC for all that time... Boot time and access times are great, the day-to-day use is wonderful, everything is so quick! Perfect to install your OS into (and have a 1TO HDD for storage)
Until it stopped working today.
I've tried everything I could do, but it won't help.
The SSD is definately broken, but OCZ will exchange it without any discussion.

Experience: 2 Years
Used for 2 years and it is still going strong. Never experienced any performance decrease after 4-5 secure erases yet. I have it in Raid 0 and is FAST!

Experience: 1 Years
Fast, good price to performance.
Extremely unreliable and I hate those mail in rebate that takes months.
I bought the original vertex and it failed after six months. I then bought the vertex 2. 18 months later the drive developed enough bad sections that cripple the drive performance. Very disappointed in OCZ, I have their RAM, PS, and SSD.

Experience: 10 Months
fast, ok price
The SSD was working fine but after 10 months it disappeared from the bios and did not show up in Windows 7. Lucky Windows was installed on a different drive (hhd) otherwise the computer would've have stopped working altogether and lucky I had backup. The SSD is now UPS ($40) to OCZ for fix and waiting. Supposedly OCZ will pay for the return shipment. I bought the ssd at $200 and i was very satisfied when it was working. I hear even with a new or fixed ssd, the problem still persist as in stop working in several months, and when working, is brother used it at his company and has the same problem even with the updated firmware.

Experience: 8 Months
-SSD speed
-Supports TRIM
-Dies very frequently
Very disappointed in this product. At first, the speed of the SSD was very impressive and I didn't have a problem for about 3 months; then it died. Afterwards, when i had RMA'd it, everything looked to be going smoothly after i had received a completely new vertex 2; until it died 3 months later. After having my 3rd revision of the SSD, i can only wait to see 3 months later if the SSD will die once again

Experience: 1 Days
Super fast compared to my old HDD (5400k rpm...)
Makes the Laptop a whole lot quieter.
Everything just loads up and barely lags.
First install of windows gave ma a black screen on reboot.
2nd install went perfect.
Not as uber-fast as all the hype lets on.
Still a huge improvement on what I had before.

Experience: 5 Months

Not reliable.
Longevity issues.
I purchased this drive after much convincing by a couple of friends of mine, stating that they had the same brand/drive in multiple machines and they all functioned properly.

After ~5 months it was causing problems, and eventually the BIOS wouldn't even detect it on my machine.

During the downtime, I discovered from multiple forums & product reviews, that many other people were having the same problem as me with this specific SSD.

The drive is currently packaged up and is being RMA'd to OCZ.

I would not recommend this specific drive.

Experience: 5 Months
 Verified Owner
Fast and still working so far
I heard so many people having problem with this sandforce thing right after I bought it... I almost regretted it, but so far, I haven't had a single problem with it.
Although I don't dare updating it with the recent firmware. I'd rather leave it untouch, since it's working top notch.
Let's hope it keeps its good performance for the next few months!

easy speed boost for any laptop / helps with battery life, too
compressed data speed is lower than non-compressed
ssd is the future. spinning drives in laptops seems so 20th century now. price keeps coming down so keep watching. mail in rebate is a bit annowing and I actually missed the deadline so get on top of it.

Experience: 13 Months
-Very fast, Great for installing OS and a few games
-Not as fast as newer Vertex 3 or other SATA3 SSDs
I've had this ssd for over a year, and despite the apparent high frequency of other people's SSD Vertex 2's going bad, mine has been nothing but joy to own. I have had absolutely no problems with my SSD, have not ever had to update  firmware, and have never experienced blue screens. Perhaps I may have received a good copy? Nonetheless, because of my personal experience with this SSD, at the time of writing, I recommend this SSD for those still using SATA2 interface.

Posted by: greg_e @01/13/11
Comment: When compared to the other next generation SSD on the market, the Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB, we felt the Vertex 2 E is the way to go.
