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 eggssuperfast drive, but super fast death

Pros: This drive is really fast
WEI of 7.4 in IDE mode
WEI of 7.8 in AHCI mode

Cons: Cannot shutdown the computer or the drive become unallocated (FW 1.10). With FirmWare 1.11 the drive is completly death. (it is show on the bios but Windows/ubuntu do not see it in disk manager)

Other Thoughts: Do not by this until OCZ solve their problem. As per them the problem come from the controller on the drive. and it is up to me to pay the warranty return shipping.
(before they reply... yes i tried OCZ forum support but i still get a unusable drive and a bill to paid)

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Customer Service & NO Rebate

Pros: Fast Drive
Easy to install

Cons: Denied Rebate.
Poor Customer Services when calling OCZ.
Will NOT be buying an OCZ product ever again!!!
Read other reviews on customer service & rebates.
You've been warned.

Other Thoughts: I read dozens of complaints on OCZ's rebate process & hoped I'd avoid it. I was wrong.
After triple checking the rebate requirements from their site, and having my wife double check I had everything in order, they still denied my rebate. Calling the rebate center was a joke, it sounded like one old lady sitting in her home answering calls. She had very poor knowledge of the rebate status, and gave me incoorect information for OCZ's website.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you have had rebate difficulties. We use a dedicated rebate house for all processing, and we aplogize that they were not as helpful as you the should have been. Please email our internal rebate desk at rebates@ocztechnology.com and include your full name, address, product, and date and place of purchase. We will see that all valid rebate claims are paid. Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsRebate process is designed to make it difficult

Pros: Worked first time I plugged it in. A lot faster than a hard drive.

Cons: The rebate process OCZ has contrived makes it difficult to get your rebate. It takes a lot of time hunting and pecking around trying to find the right form that disappeared from the product page on Newegg. Then you have to give your personal info and Newegg's order number to a third party website, then fill out and print out their form, then mail it BACK to them with your UPC code on the box. If you don't postmark it within 21 days (which they don't tell you) you lose.

Why does OCZ hassle their customers like this? Their process is designed to make it hard for customers to get a promised rebate. This type of conduct it's unacceptable. Based on this, I will not buy their product again. I expect decent customer service and not being jerked around on purpose, thus my only one egg rating.

Other Thoughts: Only getting a little over 200MB/s read using ATTO benchmarking software, not 285MB/s as advertised. Write speeds are a lot slower also.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, all rebate details are listed on the rebate forms. Newegg manages the online rebate forms and keeps an archive of all past offers at the link below for easy access. The rebate fulfillment process is handled by a 3rd party rebate house, and mirrors our closet competitors offers. We are sorry that things seem somewhat complicated, but we have had few complaints since making the change to the online system we currently use. Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsNot very reliable for long term use

Pros: Quite fast when it was working

Cons: My drive stopped working after 3 months, very painful since I don't have a way to retrieve my data from hard drive now. Sent email to support@ocztechnology.com twice but no response from them, very disappointed at the quality and support. I will suggest people not to buy OCZ

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for about a day

Pros: It was fast when it worked. Windows 7 and applications installed quickly.

Cons: It failed after about a day. I tied it in another computer after it failed and it was definitely dead. I'm waiting for a replacement from Newegg.

Other Thoughts: The drive shipped with version 1.25 firmware, which is newer than the officially released firmware shown on the OCZ firmware download page. There are now references to even newer firmware revisions in the OCZ forums.

1 out of 5 eggsSevere Problems

Pros: Price point, Speed.

Cons: Reliability. We purchased 5 of these drives in 01/10 for a RAID 10 array for one of our servers. So far 3 of 5 have failed. I am about to RMA my 3rd and most recent failure.

Other Thoughts: OCZ has been good about sending us replacement drives. The replacements are actually a different model as well...

1 out of 5 eggsDrive Failed After Windows Install

Pros: - Fast
- Recognized immediately by BIOS

Cons: - Failed upon a driver install/reboot after Windows Installation (BIOS no longer recognized drive in bay)

Other Thoughts: Waiting on RMA... These are supposed to be more durable than an HDD, But it seems there are still a few production issues. Hopefully this was just an oddity and not a common occurance... I would like to rely on this as my main laptop drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we aplogize for the issue, and are confident that your replacement drive will work out fine for you. If we can be of any assistance in the future, please visit the link below and post in our support forums. Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: I got a decent deal on it.

Cons: It was dead from the moment I received it.

Other Thoughts: Tried the drive out on several systems and no system can read the drive. Please note the return policy for this item will only let you return it for another of the same. I guess I shouldn't have rushed into this deal as it seems these particular drives aren't very reliable.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry for the problem, and we are confident that your replacement drive will work out for you and serve you well into the future. Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsTotal Junk

Pros: Fast when they work.

Cons: They die. They die fast. They Die often.

Other Thoughts: I bought 4 of these SSD. One died in the first week. I have had it replaced 3 times now. The new replacement died a few weeks ago and I just don't have the energy to send it back again for the new headache that they will send me. One of the other 3 just died a few days ago. It lasted 3 months. I am going to rip all of these out of the rest of my computers and just go back to the old HHDs.

When A SSD dies that is it. There is NO way of getting info/data off of it. You cannot hook it to a different computer as a spare drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the problems. Please contact our support manager at (408) 733-8400, ext 206. We want every customer to be pleased with their purchase, and will be happy to work with you on a suitable solution. Thank you
