OCZ Vertex 2 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This drive is amazing. After proper installation with all the correct settings, my PC now boots in about a quarter of the time, the Windows screen after login appears pretty much instantly and Mozilla Firefox launches within 2 seconds. I had no problems with the drive so far (used it for about 3 months now), everything is working perfectly.

Cons: Difficult to fine tune (applies to all SSD drives, not really specific to this model). Basic connections and setup are easy, but it took me about a day to check all different settings in the Bios, update Windows to W7, format and select all the correct settings in Windows to make sure the drive is used optimally. Definitely requires some good experience with PCs and Windows to get all the benefits out of it. The time it takes to set it up made me remove one "egg" from the rating.

Other Thoughts: The information of how to set up the drive properly comes with the drive in a short manual, but a lot of useful information can be found on the Internet. It is worth browsing for a while to find suggestions how to fine tune these drives.
