5 out of 5 eggs Best single upgrade you can make 04/12/2009

This review is from: OCZ Vertex Series OCZSSD2-1VTX30GXXX 2.5" 30GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, small, quiet, no heat....Did I say fast. Apps open just about as fast as you click on them. These Vertex drives are an excellent upgrade to minimize disk access bottlenecks. I couldn't believe the speed increase from web browsing to encoding videos...anything that uses disk access. Put one in my Samsung NC-10 Netbook and it absolutely fly's.

Cons: SSD's in general are on the cutting edge. MFG's are still figuring out the best implementations for them. This includes more intelligent controller chips and optimized firmware and utilities to keep them running at top speed. Don't get me wrong. Even on their worst day they are much faster than my VeliciRaptor...

Still pricey but these are definitely the current and future for new computers.

Other Thoughts: Check out the OCZ SSD Forum for much more detail but don't be dissuaded. If you just buy one and use it without doing anything special you will be pleased. I just put a 30GB in my main system and the speed increase for everyday use is simply amazing. I'm using XP and am very pleased.
