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 Windows 7 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 SSDs 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 240GB 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 eggsLets hope OCZ stands behind their product

Pros: Was fast.

Cons: Was fast at going out and of no use.

Other Thoughts: SSD is definitely an improvement if you're looking for speed, don't waste your money on memory just get an SSD, just get one that last longer than a year. Can't say anything yet about manufacturer until they respond to my RMA

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible, horrible drive

Pros: Fast for the week or so it works.

Cons: Red and green lights both on after a couple months, won't detect in BIOS. RMA'd, second died the same way within a week. Garbage. I'm pretty sure I'll never buy or recommend anything OCZ again.

Other Thoughts: Seriously, if it's a known issue and firmware fixes it, then flash the latest firmware before shipping me the drive. Ridiculous.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous,

I am sorry to hear about your experience with the Vertex 2. It has been 6 months since the last firmware update for the Vertex 2. All drives are manufactured with the latest firmware available at that time. Because of nature of Newegg reviews, it is not possible to determine the age or date of drive manufacture and thus current firmware version. Updating firmware is only meant as a general suggestion/recommendation.

OCZ will gladly arrange for a warranty replacement! We want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase and will take steps to make this right. Please contact our Support at the link below and we will make prompt arrangements with you.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

2 out of 5 eggsI was good while it lasted

Pros: It was fast.

Cons: The SSD died after just a little more than a year of usage. The Red light of Death on the SSD is now illuminating and the drive is not detected anymore in the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: There is a 3 years warranty so I will contact OCZ about an RMA.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the sudden failure of your SSD! This particular drive has had several firmware updates - if it is not possible to update OCZ will gladly test and replace the drive per warranty terms. If you haven't already, please contact support using the link below and we will help however possible.

2 out of 5 eggsGlad to see it is discontinued

Pros: *IF* it works out of the box, it lives up to its specifications

Cons: DOA, then another DOA, finally got a working unit.

Other Thoughts: Too bad they did not test the devices before shipping

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry you received a non-working shipment! OCZ does test drives prior to shipment and incidents of DOA drives are extremely rare. We are glad you finally received a working unit. We do offer phenomenal Support Forums and resolve issues like this very quickly and can help with possible oversights. Visit any time through or the link below!

5 out of 5 eggsAlready had the 64gb model

Pros: This drive gave me no problems after I updated the firmware and installed Windows 7 64bit on it. I was a incredible upgrade for my wife's laptop.

Cons: None whatsoever for me, however if you do not have a computer with 2 hard drive slots I wouldn't recommend getting this as you need it to be a secondary hard drive to update the firmware.

Other Thoughts: This is a great hard drive for older laptops and desktops with SATA II ports instead of the newer SATA III ports and it can now be purchased pretty cheap per GB.

5 out of 5 eggsNewegg Redeems

Pros: The drive boots quickly as it should and windows 7 loaded with any issues.

Cons: When I ordered the drive the description clearly stated that it came with a 2.5" to 3.5" mounting adapter but when I received the drive there was no adapter.

Other Thoughts: Newegg owned up to the mistake on their listing and shined bright with their eggcelent customer service and gave me a $10 credit so I could order the OCZ mounting adapter that I needed.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: Upgraded my 120 GB Agility SSD to 240 GB Vertex 2.

I decided for the Vertex 2 as laptop doesn't have SATA 3, so no need to spend the extra bucks for a SATA 3 drive.

Works flawlessly, boots Windows in about 30 seconds. No lag when running multiple programs and VM's at the same time.

Laptop: Dell XPS 16
Windows 7

Love it.

Cons: None.
