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!!!!

  129. I’m desperately wanting a large SSD. I just ordered one from Newegg, a 128GB Agility 3 for $65. But a 512GB Vertex 4…how do you people afford these things?!?!

    Hahaha – good luck to all!

  130. Thanks for the chance at an awesome prize.

  131. Les, this is awesome! I’m introducing many of my friends to the SSD review.

  132. Would LOVE to win this but, if I don’t congrats to the person who does. Looks like a great drive!!!

  133. I have been using OCZ vertex 4 since it debuted – and all I can say is OCZ makes some smoking fast SSD drives. No more spinning disks for me. And OCZ will be my first pick among SSD vendors from now on 🙂

  134. Incredible giveaway. Sign me up!

  135. An SSD would be nice, sure!

  136. I have the 128GB V4, not enough space! Help a brotha out!!

  137. this vertex 4 would make my sloooww laptop useable again!!

  138. When will the winner be announced?

  139. 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)!

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

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

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