Based on a cutting-edge new architecture, Vertex 2 Solid State Drives deliver unprecedented performance while maintaining an affordable storage solution for early adopters looking to update their systems with the latest technology. OCZ designed the Vertex 2 to excel in both sequential and random read/write rates to take your PC or notebook productivity to the next level, featuring superb 4KB random writes up to 50,000 IOPS to give a performance edge over the previous generation. Using the latest controller technology, Vertex 2 not only provides a faster, more responsive PC experience, but promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. Built with SATA 3Gb/s, the Vertex 2 Series easily integrates into today’s mobile and desktop platforms and features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan as the ultimate Windows7 notebook or desktop upgrade. 

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSD’s translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg Better Performance Built with MLC NAND flash and the latest generation SandForce SF1200 controller featuring award winning DuraClass Technology, the OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD delivers industry-leading SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency, with maximum read speed up to 285 MB/s and maximum write speed up to 275 MB/s, plus incredible random 4K write performance of 50,000 IOPS.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Vertex 2 Series SSD’s offer native TRIM support than can be enabled in Windows 7. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

3 out of 5 eggsFailed in 40 months

Pros: Silent, FAST, capacity to comfortably hold Windows 7 OS.

Cons: Failed in 3 years 4 months.

Other Thoughts: My desktop system use of light to medium. Loosing the OS drive is a much bigger pain that loosing a backed up data drive. Shucks.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Fast

Cons: Died after 1 month of use. I purchased two of these and created a raid out of them and they both died at the same time and I lost everything. Didn't expect to need to have a second backup since they were in a RAID.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked for a long time 2 years and 354 days

Pros: Fast speeds
Worked pretty good for almost 3 years

Cons: well 10 days before warranty expired it just up and quit working. Hopefully RMA will kick in even though its close to the warranty expiration.

Other Thoughts: To the guy below me funny how we bought ours at the same time and they died at the same time.

2 out of 5 eggsVery Fast but....

Pros: Wow very fast, loads windows in 10minutes. Updates take forever but that's not the drives fault. Did I say it was fast.

Cons: Purchased in 2011, it took a few month's before I noticed it started to hang up on Windows loading. Figured it was a problem with the install. I did it again, again and again.... It would hang as the windows logo started to appear. Every time?? I learned to just let it sit. eventually it would load. It finally died. That sucks. My HDD's lasted longer? I thought the benefit of a SSD was no moving parts therefore a longer lasting product? Somewhat disappointed. I just entered a ticket with OCZ. Looks like I may have 30 days left on my warranty. However with my luck they'll find an issue where that won't be the case. "Fingers crossed"

Other Thoughts: I've never had a product make such a significant boost to my computers speed than this SSD. Upgraded memory, Video Cards etc... SSD's are the way to go. I just hope that in my case they are ultimately more reliable. Again fingers crossed that OZD will help take care of this defective drive

1 out of 5 eggsBoth SSD broke...

Pros: it was fast for the time it worked, was really satisfied

Cons: I bought 2 of those, after one year the first broke, a orange light would appear instead of green and my technician even told me that he coulnt repair it.... was really shoked because i as told that SSD was very durable. 4 months later... the second broked 2... i cant believe it and hope i will get a replacement really fast or a refund because its definitly either a REALLY bad product or im the most unlocky guys in this world

Other Thoughts: setting a raid with 2 of those was somehow complicated but do-able

2 out of 5 eggsWaiting for Manufacturer RMA

Pros: Faster than hdd.

Cons: This particular unit seems to be cursed - OCZ has offered to replace my Vertex 2 with an Agility 3, with which I have used before and have, thus far, not had problems.

Other Thoughts: OCZ gets a bad rap sometimes - I have had one successful RMA and one rejected rebate. Depending on the results of this RMA is my continued business with them.
