It's an intel thing, basically in easy terms it helps your SATA ports perform alot better and helps out with stuff like SSD's and hot swapable HDD bays

If you email their RMA service they will tell you to use a specific benchmark.

On that particular benchmark (the one you linked), that's about what I got with the OCZ Vertex 2 120GB (first generation, not the newer cheaper nm reduced gen). Mine broke after less than 3 months of use, so I RMA'd and resold the new packaged one I got back at a bit of a loss.
if you are getting the same speeds as him somethings wrong, i'm not saying mine or tremendously higher but they are much close to what is expected of the drive.


Other than that you can try poking around OCZs tech support, i've heard they have great service. Other than that this is the first time i've ran into this problem so if i were in your shoes i would do an RMA.

sorry i couldn't help any further

I went to their tech support, and other users on their forums told me that my numbers were just the same as theirs. Their tech support told me the numbers were proper as well, and they told me to test using a specific benchmark (I think ATTO or something), and that gave me better numbers. OCZ is just fail all around. Their RMA department is good, but that's because that's probably their most active department.

I was running the drive properly on my sig rig. No need to ask if I did this or that... I do it all until things work right.

What I'll say to the OP is this: There is a high rate of failure that is not reported by OCZ (they claim 9/10 RMA's do not qualify as "failures"... they have a technicality... so it cuts their claimed failure rate numbers down hugely... it's really sleezy you can PM me and I'll let you know if you really want to know... but their forum moderator inadvertently brought this to my attention with a comment about how they calculate their failure rates and what doesn't qualify as a failure... let's just say when the drive is toast, sometimes they consider it as "working" still). If you RMA, you aren't guaranteed to get a drive which performs any better than your current drive. You might see the same performance, worse, or better. I'd say stick with it if it's working for you right now.

This is from my girlfriend laptop Vertex 2 120gb with window vista. download the OCZtoolbox and see if you have a 64GB Die Size. if you do RMA it. they will sent you(guaranteed) a 32gb Die Size. and use the intel drives. the Marvell drive suck lol

sorry if this thread is closed, just wanting to let OP know that the OCZ is a sata 3gbp meaning it will max at about 275mb seq write, where as sata 6gbps will give u max speeds of around 450-550mb, sata 6g is also limited to a absolute maximum of 600mbs from what i know smile.gif

no need for RMA it is what it is i guess, nower days sata 6gb is pretty standard smile.gif

hope this answer future questions smile.gif

Typically I do not necropost, especially to a 5 year old threads wink.gif But I think that most likely the problem of the thread author was caused by the improper partition alignment that still can be seen on the AS SSD Benchmark screenshot from the first post.
