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 60GB 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 eggsWorked great until it didn't

Pros: -Fast

Cons: -Failed a couple months after the warranty expired. Won't power up or anything, just totally dead.

Other Thoughts: I guess I can't really expect more than I got out of this drive, but it is disappointing it died pretty much right as the warranty expired. It doesn't really matter though, as I doubt anybody will be looking to buy this model ever again.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Had two of these in raid 0. Excellent speed. Usually one of the first 3 players to loads maps in many online games that I play.

Cons: Only con was trying to update the firmware. Probably not manufacturer's fault, but the drive would never show up in the tool they have.

Other Thoughts: Great drive, worked solid. Owned for a little over two years. Both drives gave out within a month of each other. Which is fine, I am on my pc all the time. Great news is they were still under warranty. Got replacement drives within 5 days of the RMA, quickest RMA I have ever had!!!

2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Came with a rebate. Worked as advertised...for a while

Cons: Just died recently with out warnng.

Other Thoughts: I know its 2 years old, but the PC I installed this in only gets used for a few hours a week. I imagine if I installed this in a frequently used machine it would have died much sooner.

2 out of 5 eggsDead

Pros: Was a great boot drive.

Cons: Died after 3 years and 2 months of use.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure the drive is dead as I used the same SATA cable and port to test other devices and the cable/port setup worked fine. Just when I re-plugged the SSD in, my BIOS and device manager wouldn't acknowledge the existence of this drive anymore. Was like teenage girls giving my SSD the cold shoulder.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper fasssst!!!!

Pros: I've had this in my htpc for just 3 years now, and I have to say it is running great! Boot up times are super quick, and I'm thoroughly pleased with this drive so far. Great/must buy!

Cons: May run hot at times, but this may be a fan issue on the motherboard. It remains to be seen on how it would run in a hard drive enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsOver 3 Yrs. Non Stop Operation

Pros: All of the pros everyone else has stated. Installed with clean install Win7 64. Absolutely no install issues.

Cons: Firmware updating a little difficult.

Other Thoughts: Much faster than my WD Velociraptor. no problems after over 3 yrs. of almost continues operation. I live in an area that has a lot of power surges, brown outs and sudden failures. I have a UPS but it's not compatible with my computer power supply so it intermittently shuts down but it has not affected the Vertex 2 as far as I can tell. I ran bench32 when new and again a month ago. both nearly the same numbers. The SMART report [for what it's worth] indicates no problems and 100% life.
I can't help but wonder if some of the reported problems are do to outside forces such as power supplies or not studying and following installation recommendations from OCZ.

3 out of 5 eggsLasted year and a half

Pros: Worked fine and pretty fast for one and a half years, basically. Then just wouldn't come up or be recognized on the bus anymore.

Cons: Reliability was fine, when it was. Then it wasn't.

Other Thoughts: These have got to get better and more reliable. Love the speed, but probably isn't worth it when compared to mechanical drives - yet.
