OCZ Vertex 2 SATA II 3.5” Solid State Drives deliver the same industry-leading performance as the 2.5” edition in a larger, lower cost per gigabyte form factor to easily integrate into desktop applications without the need to install additional hardware.

Designed to excel in both sequential and random read/write speeds up to 50,000 4KB random write IOPS, the 3.5” Vertex 2 maximizes productivity when used as a primary storage or boot drive, minimizing program load times and completing tasks with blazing speed. Using the latest controller technology, the 3.5” Vertex 2 provides a faster, more responsive PC experience complete with TRIM support to keep your drive operating at peak performance in Windows 7 systems. Built with SATA 3Gb/s, Vertex 2 3.5” drives easily integrate into today’s desktop platforms as the ultimate storage upgrade.

  • newegg 3.5" Form Factor Available with capacity ranging from 90GB to 480GB and with 3.5" form factor, the OCZ Vertex 2 SSD offers a great addition to your desktop PC allowing you to effortlessly incorporate the latest storage technology.
  • newegg Exceptional Performance Powered by SandForce 1200 controller and Max IOPS firmware, the OCZ Vertex 2 delivers mind-boggling performance of up to 285MB/s Max Read, 275MB/s Max Write and 50,000 IOPS (250MB/s Max Read, 240MB/s Max Write and 22,500 IOPS for OCZSSD3-2VTX480G) that takes productivity to the next level whether in daily tasks or demanding applications.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Vertex 2 Series SSDs offer native TRIM support that 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 eggsNOT COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 8.1

Pros: CHEAP

Cons: CHEAP, took some searching to discover no support driver for older models of OCZ SSD's. Blue Screen of death. For windows 7 and older OS's

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous,

There seems to be a misunderstanding here. No 2.5" or 3.5" OCZ SSD, including the Vertex 2, requires a driver. The drive will work in Windows 8.1 just as it does in Windows 7. Your chipset may require a driver or at least a driver adjustment. There is also a possible chipset incompatibility, as the latest Intel Haswell platform (Z87 chipset for example) is not fully compatible with the controller used in the Vertex 2. We are happy to help you resolve this and are confident we can do so. Please contact our Support Forum using the link below and we will help you troubleshoot the problems you are having. If we cannot correct the issue we will arrange for a warranty replacement in accordance with the warranty terms.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,

OCZ Support

4 out of 5 eggsDon't be too scared of the word "refurbished."

Pros: Performance is like new as it should be.
It is well out of warranty now (running 10 months at the time of this review) and no signs of degradation or slow-down.
I like the 3.5" form factor because no adapters or mods of any kind are needed for typical desktop installation.
Newegg had this priced nicely when I got it in Feb '13. 64.99 list price and a -$15.00 email promo code made for a hella $50 deal.

Cons: I suspect that in this particular drive there may be some rare moments of instability while booting Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1. I can't officially prove the SSD guilty here, but every now and then Windows will freeze while at the "starting windows" bootscreen. I never experience this with my previous configuration on this same system with 2 Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 HDDs in RAID0. Only after I installed Windows on this SSD. I only knocked off one egg since it's a rare incident and no other performance problems have ever occurred.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good on this value SSD

Pros: Good price for a 90GB SSD, good history with OCZ both in reliability and, when needed, support. Nice form factor for older PC upgrade.

Cons: None found

Other Thoughts: Purchased this for a HDD upgrade in a friend’s 5 year old desktop and it breathed life back into that machine far more than I imagined it would. I have purchased 20+ SSD drives of various brands and capacities since their initial release and, on the whole, they have all been pretty good. I have bought many OCZ SSDs over the years and had a couple of failures that were replaced under warranty, with my OCZ Support experience being favorable. I have the 120GB version of this drive in my wife’s PC and it is still going strong 3 years later. 5 eggs for “so far, so good” and generally good performance under Windows 7.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Really inexpensive on shell-shocker

Cons: -Died after a month of use
-Prior to death, would cause random system slowdowns while playing video games, a symptom that did not occur with the other SSDs in the other systems around the house

Other Thoughts: I'm in the process of RMA-ing this hard drive because it had died on me (luckily OCZ extended the warranty on these guys). I verified that the issue was isolated to the SSD as windows 7 recovery cannot even locate the SSD. I had installed with TRIM enabled and in AHCI mode, and had updated the firmware prior to OS installation. This is quite disappointing but I knew I was rolling the dice with a refurb drive (luckily my data was backed up prior to this happening). I have now bought another SSD and will be using the RMA-ed Vertex 2 in the HTPC as it's a less critical application.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Worked fine while it worked.

Cons: Failed after 2 1/2 months. Unrecognizable. Data gone.

Other Thoughts: Cheap? Not when you lose everything and have to mess with another RMA.

2 out of 5 eggsDO NOT USE WITH HASWELL!!!

Pros: Cheap and nice that it fits in a 3.5" slot

Cons: - Uses older Sandforce controller - NOT compatible with Haswell Chipset!
- Feels light

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive along with a new Z87E-ITX and Core i5 Haswell CPU. I was upgrading my WHS 2011 box for the 6SATA connectors to speed up raid. Anyway over the course of installation i had the intermittent lockup issue as well as blue screen problems. I checked memory, installation, heat sink, temperatures etc. I also tried an old 750Gb spinning HD an did not experience issues. I tried the drive again, ensuring it was on latest firmware but issues continued. On searching google and OCZ forums I found that it is explcitly stated that the Sandforce controller used in this drive (and many others) is not fully compatible with Haswell CPU's (and therefore Chipsets). I am trying to RMA this drive back for refund but I don't hold out much hope. If you want to know more search google for OCZ SANDFORCE HASWELL for the answers.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Refurb!

Pros: 3.5" form factor
90GB Capacity (perfect for 64bit OS)
$49 price point
RAID 0 2 or more of these for max performance gains.

Cons: SATA II speed limits
Never have I reached beyond the 100's Mbs speed in a non-RAID config.

Other Thoughts: I've been a serious OCZ refurb SSD addict for almost a year thanks to Newegg. After numerous refurb installs, it's hard to actually return to HDD's for any reason other than bulk storage. Stick with the Vertex versions since they'll always prove faster than those cows known as OCZ Agility.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 1 month -- AVOID!

Pros: It was fast for as long as it worked.

Cons: It only worked for about 1 month. Since I didn't get the rest of the parts for my computer for about 1 month after I bought this, it was too late to return to Newegg, so I RMA'ed it directly to OCZ.

DO NOT trust your critical files to this drive!!
