Vertex 2 Solid State Drives offer 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. (*specification may differ by model)

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. 

  • 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.

1 out of 5 eggsDied today

5 out of 5 eggsFast Boot Drive for SATA II

Pros: Bought 3 of these for around 50 bucks each on sale last year. Used 2 to put new life in HTPC's running Athlon 64 X2 and the 3rd in a new build with SATA II MB and A4 Trinity CPU.

Cons: Wish they were still available, would buy a dozen more!

5 out of 5 eggsgreat upgrade

Pros: fast, reliable.

Cons: updating the firmware is a PAIN.. i gave up on it, since it works fine without the update. It always gives me some excuse (error) as to why it can't or wont update. whatever, still does it's job.

Other Thoughts: Had this one a couple weeks short of a year. Just bought another refurbished OCZ SSD drive to replace this one in my PC as OS disk. This one will now be going into the Macbook in place of the 30gb ssd I had in the macbook a couple years back. And the 30gb may find a home as an external. OCZ SSDs are my go-to. Even refurbished. When the price on the technology drops I'll get a new one, until then- this is the way to go for me.

3 out of 5 eggsFailed 5 months in

Pros: Good, fast, consistent performance

Cons: Purchased in March, failed in August. Stopped being recognized by BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Was great while it lasted. Luckily it failed before the 180 days limited warranty was up.

I don't see a lot of reviews from others that say it failed after a certain period of time (most just say DOA), so my experience might be unique. Hopefully this isn't the level of quality OCZ intends to put into their refurbs.
