I installed it, and after a day Windows 7 x64 started freezing on me (but no BSOD).
I read around the forums a bit, and discovered that you need to alter a couple of settings to get it to run reliably.
You need to:
1) Enable Hot Plugging for the sata channel where you installed your Vertex 3.
2) Disable LPDM for the same sata channel, by editing your registry as in:
After doing this, the drive has been running flawlessly for over a week now, without a single crash or freeze or BSOD.
The drive is super fast and boots into Win7 with all boot applications loaded in less than 10 seconds.
I am running firmware 1.06, the one that came with the drive.
Having said that, these config. options should be clearly stated in the SSD manual, and they are not.
The firmware update process is a JOKE, way too complicated, although OCZ does offer an ISO for a bootable linux cd that allows firmware updating on any machine, and also the BSOD issue, although limited (less than 0.4% of users, according to OCZ), does exist for some users.
If you want something more reliable go for Intel 510 SSD, otherwise, if you don't mind running a small risk, go for this one. It IS super fast, and after proper configuration it has been running flawlessly on my Asus P67 Pro mobo.

Don't bother buying this SSD and I'll explain why , loading in games were VERY fast, computer boot to desktop in 5 seconds after Bios screen "literally" after i have optimized everything of course, reading+writing speed was superfast etc performance wise this ssd was a beast, but then the unexpected happens
BSOD "Blue screen of death which will force your computer to get stuck/force shutdown" this SSD is not reliable at ALL in the long run, yes if you use it for 1-2hours you might get lucky and not get the BSOD but YOU WILL get BSOD guaranteed if you keep your pc on a lot, (my power settings is set to never turn off HD and everything is optimized trust me, i have followed step by step guides by OCZ and did troubleshooting with their forums+customer support for a week and the issue still remain EVEN AFTER i did RMA the first drive, i have tried the SSDs on more than 1 computer and the issue remains) so far after 3 week of use i usually get 1 BSOD a day on average, only 2 days i did not get BSOD (but again some days i got 2 BSOD in the same day) tons of people are posting about their BSOD in the official forums and OCZ answer is "RMA it because we can not recreate the issue in our lab" they want to keep you in the RMA loop hoping maybe they fix the issue later on maybe via firmware or to let your return window pass since RMA takes a while, their last 2.06 update did not help much either, it have removed the random daily freeze and replaced it with more BSOD

I've had this drive in production for over a year now, never had any problem at all. I think this "enterprise" SSD is not subject to high failure rates.Published on November 28, 2013 by Justin Z
