OCZ Vertex 2 3.5

5 out of 5 eggs Great, but Mac Pro mounting scary 12/29/2010

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 2 3.5" 90GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD3-2VTX90G

Pros: Speed, reliability.

Cons: Unconventional form factor (but fits).

Other Thoughts: If you're installing this into the drive sled of a Mac Pro, be aware that the screws will be very tight. It's ok if the plastic starts to 'bend' a little, it seems like it's built to do this. But why the heck OCZ chose such a strange spaceship-like form factor is beyond me. Square and plain (like their 2.5" drives) would be much better.

OCZ Vertex Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast, cool, fairly affordable for the capacity.

Cons: Failed after 15 months.

Other Thoughts: I loved this SSD in my Macbook Pro 3,1 until the day it died (last night, as of the time of this writing). But it does have a 3 year warranty, so hopefully OCZ support will replace my drive.

OCZ Vertex Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast, light, cool. Everything I dreamed it would be.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I installed this in a MacBook Pro 3,1 (Core 2 Due Santa Rosa) which only has a 1.5Gb SATA interface. The drive itself is 3Gb interface.
