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.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Product

Pros: Super fast, decent price

Cons: Only runs for one year. Don't put anything important on it because you will be shipping it back. I bought my first drive 4-1-2011 and it died within a year. RMA'd back to OCZ which they replaced with a brand new drive only to have it die again 5-5-2013.

Other Thoughts: If you want a disposable drive that only lasts a year, I highly suggest this brick.

2 out of 5 eggsStarts out fast. But dies just like all my OCZ SSD's

Pros: Started out fast. Booted up in 10 seconds from post screen.

Cons: After about a month or two started freezing just like my other OCZ drive before the windows logo starts loading. Then after some firmware updates and reinstalling the OS, still windows 7 logo freezes before loading just like on last OCZ SSD. I lived with this for awhile, after one more firmware update it worked better for a bit but then crashed completely and is unrecognizable. bleh.

Other Thoughts: too far from warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Reliable Drive

Pros: Cheap(bought it when Nand was plummeting)
Solid performance
Reliable(thus far)

Cons: Poor History of prior drives failing
Smallish(wish NAND was even cheaper)

Other Thoughts: This model has had a rough life with so many failure before I bought it, I was a little wary when I bought it but for the price I was game to take a chanc, So glad I ddid, my drive came with the latest firmware already installed. I cloned my other SSD to this drive and it has been doing netbook duty perfectly. Granted the drive gets limited use as the machine it sits in is just an internet/media machine. I really appreciate its snappiness and low power consumption.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive!

Pros: Very fast. Boots Win7 Ultimate in 20-25 seconds (including BIOS check) even after almost 2 years of use. Never had any problems with it whatsover. WEI 7.6 on Asus G73JW (highest score).

Cons: It's SATA II so I won't be transferring it to my next computer.

Other Thoughts: Great quality drive. Would buy again if the interface was current.

4 out of 5 eggslong time owner now

Pros: Its a SSD and its fast
East to mount
No temperature change
still works even after two years

Cons: if you have alot of games, this is not enough space. Most new games take up alot of so space and you will run out. This also means you need to disable back up ( or set backup to your one of your other drives).
there are read errors sometimes, not enough to cause you to want to get a new one

Other Thoughts: honestly its a good SSD and it was great for its time. but now we need ones with more space.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Runs fast... when it works.

Cons: I have purcahsed 3 of these drives, 1 from Newegg, 2 from other places... ALL 3 have failed at some point with the longest lasting drive at 15 months (1 died at 3 months).
All have been RMA'd and I received a brand new in package drive, which I dont even want to sell for $40 because of how bad quality/reliability this drive is. One drive that I put in a computer for my mom literally died while I was driving over to her place to back it up... OCZ is garbage and I am glad I stopped buying any of their products. I wont even think about getting their vertex 3 or 4 lines. Agility is even worse.

Other Thoughts: OCZ = guaranteed death of drive. If you look at the OCZ Vertex forums... so many people have had the same problem with this drive. Shame on you OCZ.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA Specials

Pros: Fast

Cons: I bought 2 of these and both had to be RMA'd through OCZ in less than a year. The first RMA got back the same drive, and it needed to be RMA'd 6 months later. OCZ has now replaced these 2 drives with VTX4-25SAT3-128G. We'll see what happens.

Other Thoughts: OCZ RMA process is very quick.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Drive...

Pros: It was fast... but all solid states are fast. If it couldn't even hold up to that statement there would be absolutely no reason for OCZ to ever even produce these.

Cons: Died very quickly. Died within 3 months. RMA'd, second drive died within 4 months. It only lasted longer because I took much better care of it. I basically got a new system built around the SSD and it still only prolonged the inevitable by a month.

Terrible terrible drive..

Do NOT buy any OCZ drive. They have a record of poor performance and reliability.

Other Thoughts: I'm never buying an OCZ product again. It's just been such a slap to the face having to lose all my data twice in a row. I know it's unrelated, but the backups that I had of the data on the SSD also went at the same time this drive failed. It was a horrible mess of unluckyness that caused me to lose over ten thousand in production materials for various projects..
