Fooked SSD

Postby Capt Birdshit » Fri Mar 13, 2015 12:17 pm

So as I first thought when my SSD wasn't readable by the BIOS, the drive is fooked. Can't even read the drive to view the data. Thankfully all my important data (Docs, Desktop, Pics, Music, Game Files) are all stored on my second drive so i'm not concerned about losing anything on it.

The good news is - the Vertex 4 is one of only 3 SSDs covered by a 5 year warranty on OCZs website - eveything else only has a 3 year warranty. This means i can send it back for repair (which won't happen) or hopefully a new drive.

Does mean however i will be offline for a while, as there is no point rebuilding Windows on another drive to have to do it all over again if i receive a drive back from OCZ - if i was to have to purchase a new one i could have got one delivered tomorrow and be back online next week.

So for now, i am out of action :(

I'm back and READY :twisted:

I have never had such swift service though from OCZ. The Hard Drive was sent off last Tuesday - They received it Wednesday in the morning, and had already sent a new one out to me Wednesday afternoon - I received it from Holland on Friday afternoon. A FOUR DAY TURN AROUND :D

Quality.
