TSSDR Mega SSD Giveaway Week 1 – OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD (Contest Closed)

This week marks the second anniversary of The SSD Review and we wanted to find a way to celebrate and thought giving away a few SSDs might be a good idea.

Were we in for a shock?  The support we received in response to our request for ‘an SSD or two’ has been overwhelming and we think that, by the end of this giveaway, this one is just going to be that tough to beat! Help us celebrate our anniversary by taking part in our giveaways starting with the OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD.

Congratulations to our winner of a brand new OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD Michael Arnold of Missouri ! Contest Closed

That’s right.  Stay tuned for SSD giveaways from the likes of OCZ, OWC, Kingston, Memoright, Crucial, Patriot and others in upcoming weeks and be ready for it because one never knows what might be next.  This weeks is a OCZ Vertex 4 512GB which we are sure will get the attention but you just might see SSDs of all sizes and form factors, including an mSATA SSD or two along the way we are sure.  Each SSD will be brand new, in manufacturers sealed packaging and eligible for full warranty.

Now for this weeks draw of a OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD!!!!

The conditions are simple!

  1. Comment on this post!
  2. Like our Facebook post (
  3. Share our contest in some way, shape or form (ie. Twitter, your FB in a public post, or any other social site)
  4. Go to our Forum Post and comment on our contest thread for that week linking how you shared the post. (

Our first draw will take place on Sunday September 9 and the winner will be notified via e-mail of either their comments or their e-mail used when joining our Forums.  If the e-mails don’t work, we will draw another.

Heck visit the OCZ Site or Facebook Page and show them some love too!  We never expected them to kick in a 512GB SSD!

The contest is open to residents of Canada and the USA and, in accordance with Canadian requirements, the winner will have to answer a skill testing question (very simple) that will be sent to them on notification of eligibility and selection!  Our apologies to all other countries and, should a manufacturer ok other countries eligibility, we will be the first to amend the draw eligibility for that week.

This contest is not supported by or sanctioned by Facebook in any way.

  • djjaeger82

    OCZ SSDs are really great drives, its a shame that a few marketing hiccups and technical support issues have trashed their name along the way. Sometimes things are bumpy when you’re blazin’ the trail first, and you at least have to appreciate their efforts turning out the constant firmware updates. Looking forward to buying a vertex 4 in my future (already a happy owner of multiple vertex 2s and agility 2s)!

  • Travelguy2

    Great Giveaway…Would love to redo my build with one of these.

  • OCZ drives are the only SSD drives I use — reliability and performance are top notch!

  • Guest

    Cheers to OCZ for limiting the countries eligible.. guess I’ll just have to go buy a Corsair SSD drive instead
