5 out of 5 eggs Great way to speed up an old SATA II computer 01/12/2013

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX120G 3.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)


OCZ has finally made these drives stable.



Other Thoughts:

I bought 7 of these drives to refurbish 7 old Dell Optiplex 755 computers that, when new, only had:

2GB DDR2-667 RAM,
80GB 5400RPM Hard Drives,
pitifully slow on-board graphics chip.

I upgraded all 7 machines to:

8GB DDR2-800 RAM,

ATI HD 6750 graphics card (had to go with a single slot solution 'cuz the CPU fan shroud was too close to the PCI-express x16 slot to allow a dual slot card),

plus these refurbished 120GB Vertex 2 SSD drives.

The machines are now lightning fast. Only the WEI for the CPU remained the same at 5.8. The RAM had a modest increase from 5.8 to 6.1, the graphics went from a lowly 3.4 to 7.3, and the disk speed went all the way up to 7.8. Only way to beat that is to buy a new computer that will take advantage of the crazy fast speed of a SATA III SSD drive.
