An ideal storage alternative to hard drives, the OCZ Vertex 2 SSD combines the speed, durability, reliability and quality demanded by consumers that will not settle for anything but the best. Based on a leading architecture, OCZ designed the Vertex 2 to surpass the competition where it counts most, pushing the limits in sequential and random read/write rates as well as 4KB random write. Industry-leading SandForce controller promises unprecedented performance to breeze through the complete gamut of gaming and professional multimedia applications, and contributes to cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With SATA 3Gb/s and 2.5" form factor, 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.

  • newegg Better Performance Built with MLC NAND flash and the cutting-edge SandForce SF1200 controller featuring award winning DuraClass Technology, the OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE180G 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 SSDs 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.

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 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 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.

Based on a cutting-edge new architecture, Vertex 2 Solid State Drives raise the bar once again and deliver unprecedented performance for the complete gamut of gaming and professional multimedia applications. OCZ designed the Vertex 2 to surpass the competition where it counts most, pushing the limits in both sequential and random read/write rates. With spectacular performance in 4k file writes up to 50,000 IOPS, these latest drives take productivity to the next level with over ten times the performance of 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.

With sheer performance that outpaces the competition, the Vertex 2 doesn’t lose sight of what 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.

1 out of 5 eggsRecertified OCZ Vertex 2 64GB

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5" 100GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It was a good price.

Cons: Drive has crashed twice since I bought it. I will buy a Crucial ssd this time. I would not recommend this drive to anyone.

Other Thoughts: I knew I was taking a chance buying a refurbished ssd, lesson learned.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed Days Before Warranty Expired

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5" 100GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Bought this last October to give to my son for Christmas. I thought it would perk up his old Gateway Core 2 laptop, and it did - he was ecstatic when his machine booted up in 25 seconds. Used Acronis True Image to clone his original drive. The machine was much more responsive - programs open up almost instantly.
I bought

Cons: Unfortunately, it took me 3 months (after Christmas) to get around to installing this in his laptop. He got to enjoy it for two weeks, and then POOF! Nothing. Computer reports that there is no hard drive found, BIOS sees nothing on the SATA port. Removed the drive, installed in a USB dock, drive would not recognize.
Reinstalled his old hard drive and he's back up and running again - but bmuch more slowly.

Other Thoughts: This is the fourth SSD I've owned from OCZ. The first was an Agility 3, then a Vertex 3, and finally the Vertex that I have in my custom-built desktop (great drive!). This is the first and only recert/refurb drive I've purchased, and I expected better of OCZ. I have to double-check all dates, but I think we're barely within the warranty period - hopefully OCZ will replace this drive.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5" 100GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Going strong after 5 months
Not the fastest, but no issues either
Had good luck with Vertex 2 when they were current

Cons: Not competitive with current performance levels, but $0.50/GB is nice for machines with lower requirements.
Had to upgrade the firmware out of the box.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what makes SSDs break down or DOA but after 10 (various brands) SSDs over 4 years I have yet to experience a failure. Just the usual review bias I guess.

3 out of 5 eggsRepacked, not refurbished.

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5" 100GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price.

Cons: As is the case with some refurbished products, the manufacturer doesn't even check them correctly and just repacks them, purchased 2 for RAID, 1 was dead

Other Thoughts: Purchased the 2 drives and left them un-opened for 5 months, just created an RMA (only 6 months warranty) let's see how it turns out.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's ok

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5" 100GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works, was not DOA

Cons: Write speeds on this drive are questionable.

Other Thoughts: You will be satisfied with the read speeds of this drive, but you will say ??? when it comes to the write speeds. I would have blamed the SATA controller had I not tried the drive in another system.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5" 100GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast and price

Cons: The only con with this drive is it has major issues with new i7 ivy bridge boards. Caused BSOD and various crashes. I then moved it in to a AMD A10-7700 FM2+ build without any problems.

Other Thoughts: I ordered 2 and both are running great.
