If you look at the OCZ Technology 120 GB Vertex 2 Series SATA II 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G reviews you will see that this type of failure with OCZ drives is fairly common. At least I got a few months of use out of this product; some people experienced OCZ disks DOA and others failed in the first week. I rated this product 2 of 5 stars because for the first few months, it rocked. I purchased OCZ over other brands because of the excellent bang for the buck, price/value ratio. SSD (solid state drives) are expensive and are at least 5 to 10 times more expensive than HDD (hard disk drives) when looking at dollar per GB, but the speed breathes new life into older hardware. So be warned.
Since then, I have dug up my original hard drive and reinstalled it, and after hours of Window Updates, I'm back up and running. But boy is it slow. I do miss the SSD in my Dell Precision M4300. Since this is only a backup laptop, I'm not running out to replace it with an SSD since the old HDD is working fine. Word to the wise, make sure you have a good backup system for any important files before you rely on OCZ SSD.
Update: Shortly I posted my last review, the drive died. I checked the OCZ Forums, and lots of support requests for OCZ 128gb SSD's mention the words Dead, Died, Failed, BSOD and RMA. Now, I'm replacing this dead drive with a Samsung 470 128gb SSD, with better reliability ratings. I lowered my rating from 5 stars to 2 because it failed. Worked great while it lasted though.
Now this 2nd one has just died again (again not showing up even in BIOS). Once again all my data is gone Im sure. I have an RMA and I am HOPING the give me a different model as this one just does not seem to be working out.
Of not I use it as my boot drive and perhaps that is why it keeps failing but regardless it should work even in this scenario.
I have 3 SSDs by OCZ, and 2 failed within their 3 yr warranty period. The quickest one to die on me was a 60GB Vertex 2 when it died after just 3 months on a brand new desktop computer. This 120GB Agility 2 one lasted 14 months on another desktop computer. RMA was pretty easy, gotten my new replacement but I wouldn't trust my data with it. Ordered another SSD that isn't using the sandforce controllers for reliability, that one has 5 years warranty (hint: INTEL) and it better not die as quick as OCZ!!
If you own any SSDs that are using sandforce controller chips....back up back up back up before it is all too late!

Looks like it is the same as several others here. Purchased this just over 1 year ago to replace the SATA HD in my laptop. Read morePublished on June 21, 2013 by Tempter
Bought this drive in April 2011 and it only lasted 9 months. Definitely not worth the money. I'll never buy another OCZ product. Gave 1 star, but prefer zero.Published on January 31, 2012 by K. R. Goguen
Though not the latest SSD, it combines good performance with a great value. Installation was easy with the included 3.5" adapter.Published on January 8, 2012 by Daemonae
This is a great product. Not only does it cut down on boot time, but it makes installing apps a snap as well. It is large enough to have all your programs installed on it. Read morePublished on November 28, 2011 by Steve Lee
The bottleneck in my system was my HDD (was 4.8 per Windows Experience Index) and it's boosted to 7.2. Thanks to this little guy. It's small, light weight and cool. Read morePublished on May 25, 2011 by Tuan
