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 eggsDied during install

Pros: not yet

Cons: Died 30 minutes into first OS install and disappeared from Bios.

Other Thoughts: Kept trouble shooting not willing to believe the drive had died so quickly out of the box and missed my 30 day return opportunity with Newegg. Now it looks like I will be stuck paying for RMA shipping every time it's replacement dies for the next 3 years. OCZ says the customer paying for RMA shipping is industry standard, but it's really industry minimum, especially for a near DOA product.

I'll update this review when I get to try out the drive some more.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry for the problem and the inconvenience. We are confident that a new drive will work out fine for you.
Thank you

1 out of 5 eggs60 days? Really? Iron Egg Rusty

Pros: Pretty fast - both in speed, and failing. (Though not fast enough it seems.)

Cons: Dead.

Other Thoughts: This is day 60 of UPS confirmed delivery, fine yesterday, dead today. I slipped it into another another laptop to be sure - yup, its dead. I called newegg to take advantage of their iron egg guarantee - no dice, its 60 days from when you ordered it, not from when it arrived, and "the system" won't allow any exceptions. Hopefully OCZ comes through. I've read good things about newegg's customer service in the past, this is my first experience - way to go, newegg! :(

1 out of 5 eggsHow hard could it be...

Pros: Superfast shipping. Plus 10 brownie points, Newegg.

Cons: 3.5" bracket not compatible with Mac Pro. Minus 20 brownie points, Newegg, for failing to mention this.

Other Thoughts: How freaking hard could it be for OCZ to drill just two more holes in the mounting bracket to make it compatible with a Mac Pro? C'mon guys, get a clue!
If this is indicative of OCZ's attention to detail, I don't have much confidence in their quality control.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry for the Mac Pro bracket issue, and we regret the inconvenience. This would not reflect a quality control issue, as a design change would resolve this. We will take note of this for the future. Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsYou won't get 120GB

Pros: This drive is faster than a hard drive when reading, not really for sequential writing. Tech support is responsive.

Cons: You won't get the advertized 120GB for this drive. OCZ has swapped manufacturing lowering capacity to ~114GB but not the 120GB on the box. On the OCZ site, it lists the RAW capacity as 128 GB, but an IDEMA capacity of 115GB. In reality windows saw about 113.5 RAW and 106 formatted.

Other Thoughts: I am very dissapointed in OCZ by the mistake/shady marketing. They market a 120GB HD and give you 114, but to satisfy customers give you an option to pay more for the older version which gives you 120.

1 out of 5 eggsFasttttt when it worked..

Pros: Fast
Quiet

Cons: FAILED in less than 48 hours in my MacBook Pro with OS X 10.6

Other Thoughts: First I had to get a HDD Docking bay to transfer my old system files using CarbonCopyCloner (free) to the SSD, because Mac OS X snow leopard won't install from the DVD when inside a macbook pro.. I don't know why it wouldn't but thats just the way it is.. Anyhow after 48 hours in my macbook pro I'm back using the harddrive it came with and throughly disappointed with the product I received from OCZ.

1 out of 5 eggsdont buy this one.. it's a lemon

Pros: its an SSD

Cons: 1. This is not the rated and advertised Vertex 2 Drive. New parts have been used for this drive which make sit smaller in size and slower inperformance. The only difference betwee nthe two models is the "E" they added to the model number. As a consumer am i suppose know model numbers now to th epoint that i can distinguish 1 digit diffence. OCZ has used the good name it got from Vertex 2 drives and used it to sell these lemons of a drives. My 2 year old summit drive perfomes better that this brand new Sanforce Vertex 2.

Other Thoughts: I am extremly upset with this situation and want to be fully refunded for the price i paid by OCZ.

1 out of 5 eggsThe fast and the failure

Pros: Fast when it works

Cons: Drive failed after 5 months. No longer recognized in
BIOS or when hooked up externally through USB.

Other Thoughts: I know it goes without saying no matter what drive you use but make sure you keep backups.

1 out of 5 eggsOCZ Quality & Support is Terrible

Pros: Drive has good read and write rates and a convenient 2.5" to 2.5" drive mounting tray included.

Cons: The drive failed unexpected after four months of light use as the sole drive in a Windows 7 Ultimate system. Replacement RMA process from OCZ is very slow and the customer service people seem uninterested in being helpful. Their RMA process should take a cue from NewEgg's RMA system. I will be avoiding OCZ's substandard products and service from now on.

Other Thoughts: I would strongly advise taking a look at the Mushkin SSD drives which are approximately the same price and sport higher read and write speeds. The Mushkin SSD was the drive I wanted originally, but they were temporarily sold out at NewEgg and many other retailers (probably due to the Christmas season rush). I now have a new drive on the way from NewEgg while I wait for OCZ's slow RMA process...

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsLemon?

Pros: Expected to be fastest Drive on a market.

Cons: Top Read Speed i can get form it 127.2 min and 140.6 max MB/Sec according to HD tune. after upgrading to FW 1.10 it got even worse. 105 MB/Sec Read and never go over 100 MB/sec Write. Not 270-280 expected Will RMA and see if replace meant do any better.

Other Thoughts: I did not bougt it from NewEgg - was sold out here.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Garbage

Pros: Absolutely nothing.

Cons: Very expensive piece of garbage. I installed this 120GB model in my PC, and it did not work at all. Even my BIOS did not recognize it.
It was DOA. Apparently this is quite common with OCZ products. Just read most of other user's comments. It is very sad and very troublesome.
Buyer be aware. I sincerely don't recommend for anyone to buy from this horrible company, OCZ.
Avoid headaches, buy a different brand.

Other Thoughts: It is impossible to reach any person at OCZ's tech support. When you call OCZ at (800) 459-1816 you get a recording saying that you must submit trouble tickets only online. It took them 3 days to reply to me by email.
When it took them so long to write me, I had already RMA'd my garbage SSD back to good old Newegg.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the problem. We are happy that Newegg was able to assist you. If we can be of any assistance, please visit our support forums at the link below and post in the Flash/SSD section.
Thank you
