Vertex 2 Solid State Drives deliver unprecedented performance for the complete gamut of gaming and professional multimedia applications. Based on a leading architecture, OCZ designed the Vertex 2 to surpass the competition where it counts most, pushing the limits in both sequential and random read/write rates on the SATA II interface. With 4k file writes up to 50,000 IOPS, these drives take productivity to the next level with over ten times the performance of the previous generation. Using high-performance 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.

The Vertex 2 makes an SSD the ideal storage alternative to hard drives and delivers the quality, reliability, and durability demanded by consumers that will not settle for anything but the best. 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 an ideal Windows 7 notebook or desktop upgrade.

OCZ Vertex 2 SSDs are available in 40GB to 480GB and come with 2 million hour MTBF for ultimate peace of mind.

  • newegg Cool, Quiet and Durable Operation OCZ Vertex 2 SSDs feature a durable yet lightweight housing, and because they have no moving parts, they are more rugged than conventional hard discs. Available in ample 40GB to 480GB capacities, the Vertex 2 is an ideal hard drive replacement for first-time SSD upgraders in need of primary laptop storage or a spacious application and OS boot drive.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Vertex 2 Series SSDs offer native TRIM support featured 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.
  • newegg 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The OCZ Vertex 2 Series SSDs features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket is included with the SSD for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless - Dell PERC 6/i RAID + 4 OCZvertex2-60's

Pros: Configured my system in mid June 2011 with a brand new Dell PERC 6/i SAS Raid controller, PERC battery backup, SAS to SATA cable, and 4 OCZ Vertex2 drives running RAID 5. I have read many reviews about these drives failing, however as you have read, I am running 4 SSD's and have experienced nothing but ultimate speed and reliability. I came to newegg to buy 2 more drives to increase my disk space and felt the need to leave my positive feedback. A hardware RAID with these drives is amazing! Those of you looking for a solid storage solution, look no further.

Cons: Price maybe? But we are talking SSD here, the speed is well worth the extra change.

Other Thoughts: For those of you wondering: My 4 drives RAID 5 are Striped to what Windows 7 sees as 166GB and contains single drive for dedicated backup in the event a SMART error occurs. Fortunately, after almost a year, the backup SSD still remains idle.

2 out of 5 eggsSuddenly bad

Pros: Quick

Cons: Sudden failure. I have a friend who does IT and when I told him what was happening with my computer he thought maybe the drive was corrupted. Came over and spent 2 hours trying to figure out what went wrong. Repaired the os since i used the SSD for it to boot faster. He took my computer and worked on it late into the night and discovered the SSD was the issue. Now I'm in the same boat as many other reviewers who have lost their SSD.

Already thinking about buying a different brand and haven't even tried an RMA yet. This was my first SSD and it was great while it lasted but I'm looking for reliability not some thing I'm going to have to keep replacing.

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for the difficulties. Please visit the link below and create a support ticket to contact our staff. We will be happy to assist you with an RMA for a replacement drive. We can also assist with recommended settings to insure maximum drive life. We care about our customers and are here to help. Thank you

2 out of 5 eggslasted for 7 months

Pros: Installation was a breeze. The speed blew me away.

Cons: Failed after only 7 months.

Other Thoughts: This drive failed after 7 months, even though I was cautious enough not to let windows put a swap file on it --in order to reduce wear. Luckily, it's got a 3 year warranty. Still, I have to hassle with the RMA.

Manufacturer Response:

We aplogize for the problem. Please visit the link below and create a support ticket to arrange for an RMA. We will be happy to assist you. Thank you

2 out of 5 eggsGreat while it works.

Pros: Very fast
Cost effective ssd

Cons: Unreliable
Overly picky return process sometimes.

Other Thoughts: I have moved on to more reliable drives after another OCZ/Sandforce failure. All the firmware in the world can't fix something that is just broke.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Drive - Decent Speed

Pros: -Cheap ssd that I got for $60 during black friday.
-Hasn't failed on me or caused any problems
-Pretty fast for a cheap ssd

Cons: -Not sure why but when I benchmark the ssd, the speed is no where near advertised.
-Some people have had this die on them in a few months

Other Thoughts: Overall I think it is a great hard drive for the $, especially if OCZ can figure out why it doesn't run as fast as it says on the box.

Manufacturer Response:

Please visit our support forums at the link below. We will happy to assist you with settings and benchmarking. Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsFailed

Pros: Fast Drive - not as quick as the newer models however

Cons: Died after a little over 3 months use. This is the second OCZ disk of exactly the same type to die within 4 months of purchase. Trying to get an RMA from OCZ.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy

Pros: Drive was inexpensive, 3 year warranty (you will need it), RMA process was very easy and quick and substantially increased the speed of my system when accessing files.

Cons: Drive failed after 8 months of use. Computer went to sleep and when it woke drive was no longer detected. Boot disk failure

Other Thoughts: I would advise not to buy this hard drive if you are looking at any long term reliably.

Manufacturer Response:

We aplogize for the problem. In some systems we recommend not using sleep mode, as it may not be compatible over the long term with SSD drives. Please visit the link below and create a support ticket to get in touch with our staff to arrange for an RMA. We will be happy to assist you. Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsFast & Works :)

Pros: Fast, easy to install, reliable, maintenance-free.

Cons: With the Vertex 2s, none really.

Other Thoughts: I've had three Vertex 2 60GB drives:
* One in my T61 laptop
* One in my T410 laptop
* One in my home-built desktop.

All three have proven fast & reliable [no idea what "fitment" issues one of the posters had with Thinkpads... is he using a 3rd party ultrabay?], unlike my previous OCZ 1st gen Solid drives. One of the drives includes a VirtualBox Linux install, other two I use for photoediting in Lightroom which does tons of little writes to catalogue, so the actual usage is probably moderate to heavy in terms of SSD workloads, but knock on wood, so far they've surpassed my expectations :)

1 out of 5 eggs2,000,000 MTBF

Pros: Extremely fast. well, faster than the price equivelant in intel. Drive was no longer the bottleneck, perfect for a boot disk, recognized by windows as a ssd right off the bat.

Cons: DIED in little under 5 months of use.
screen twitched and the wonderful BSOD!
hung up the bios making me think it was something far worse. drive not recognized by anything. Rma to OCZ. not sure bout these sandstorm controllers.... no i am, they are trash.

Other Thoughts: A pretty red light did turn on on the drive XD
--Heres my use--
boot disk win 7x64
usr profile and page file moved to other disk
no programs except drivers and windows
indexing off
