180 days is 6 months lol
From what I have seen this drive either craps out in 3 months or lasts for quite a while.
A 6 month Warranty isn't optimal, but it's not too bad for a refurb.
Considering you don't have to deal with rebates if you have to RMA, I think it's a decent deal for $/GB
Yeah, not to mention it's an OCZ drive AND it's a Vertex 2 which is known to have lots of issues. When the drive dies on you, it's going to do so without any warning and all your data will be gone. I don't know about you, but my data is worth paying a bit more for a better drive.
I need to check my math, but I think a 180 day warranty is the same as 6 months. Still, this deal could be dicey.
Thanks to the OP for posting.
lol i meant 6months...but still i heard these arent reliable , like if this was a Samsung 830 or an intel drive that was refurbish id take the gamble. id like to know if people that buy refurbished ssds have good luck with them and how reliable and the wear factor is in these drives..
All hard drive deals are a gamble.
This one is a bigger gamble, but for the potential savings.....it might be worth it for a non-critical machine.
I have a second system that is primarily used as a media system and if I were putting it together or upgrading it - this would be ideal.
Silly to give such a low price a thumbs down because some people are worried about what, "might" happen.
I bit. I don't particularly care for OCZ, but it's going into a secondary HTPC and if it fails within 6 months, there's a good chance I'll get an even better drive in return. You can't beat the $/GB ratio of this drive.
