Designed to excel in both sequential and random read/write speeds up to 50,000 4KB random write IOPS, the 3.5” Vertex 2 maximizes productivity when used as a primary storage or boot drive, minimizing program load times and completing tasks with blazing speed. Using the latest controller technology, the 3.5” Vertex 2 provides a faster, more responsive PC experience complete with TRIM support to keep your drive operating at peak performance in Windows 7 systems. Built with SATA 3Gb/s, Vertex 2 3.5” drives easily integrate into today’s desktop platforms as the ultimate storage upgrade.

  • 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 90GB to 480GB capacities, the Vertex 2 is an ideal hard drive replacement for first-time SSD upgraders in need of primary desktop storage or a spacious application and OS boot drive.
  • newegg Ultimate reliability Designed for ultimate reliability, Vertex 2 Series SSDs have an excellent 2 million hour mean time between failure (MTBF) ensuring peace of mind over the long term. Vertex 2 Series comes backed by a 3-year warranty and award-winning technical support for the ultimate peace of mind.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Vertex 2 Series SSDs offer native TRIM support that can be enabled 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 SATA 3.0 Gb/s Interface The OCZ Vertex 2 Series SSDs feature the next-generation SATA II interface supporting up to 3.0 Gb/s data transfer rates, Native Command Queuing (NCQ) and hot-pluggable point-to-point connections for optimum performance, efficiency, convenience and flexibility.

Works well

Pros: Works well and fast for and upgrade from HHD. Large enough capacity for windows 7, adobe CS4 suite, AutoCAD and Revit (and then some)

Cons: this is the second one, meaning, I had this replaced once, BUT the RMA turn around time was good, though. (thanks OCZ :)

Other Thoughts: I was trying to upgrade to a 240gig, Corsair, it failed in 2-3 weeks. This current drive has been going since January 2013.

good ssd at the time

Pros: got this ssd awhile ago. went through about 4 other ones that failed on me for some reason. Worked great after that, WEI went from 5.6 (HDD) to 7.4. newer ssd will perform better but this is no brainer for anyone who wants increased read/write speed. it silent and run at room temperature almost no heat. I would not trust with important information with these things. But i've had couple of these for almost 3 yrs now.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: if you want trusted performance get a spinner drive and use this one as boot only as it bogs down just a bit after while.

Not bad, when it isn't locked up.

Pros: Being that this was my first solid state in my desktop, i was impressed with how fast everything loaded. That's about all i can say after having the following issues in the con section.

Cons: A month after installation, drive locks up entirely. I learned that the issue was with the chipset and the sleep/hibernate/wake cycle the computer goes into when you just leave it on. I was very upset, but that subsided when OCZ RMA'd and a replacement was on its was out a week later. The wait sucked, but hey, being replaced, couldn't complain. Once received i made sure that my computer would never perform the sleep/ hibernate cycle ever again. I would have that thing on so as to not even give it the chance to even consider nap time. 2 days ago, i hit the sleep button since i was running out for lunch and it had seized up by the time i got back. This thing flat out *****. The lifespan of this drive is not even worth $20. Do yourself a favor and buy an intel ssd of the smasung 840 pro. Whatever you do, avoid this product. You will be disappointed in the long run.

Other Thoughts: Worthless. I wouldn't even take a free one.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer,

We are very sorry to hear about your problems with sleep transitions involving the Vertex 2 and your system. This particular drive has received firmware updates to help with stable sleep transitions on certain systems/configurations. Since you have experienced multiple failures, we can assume this can be attributed to some sort of driver/system incompatibility. OCZ is happy to make alternate arrangements with you per warranty terms. Please take a moment to contact our Tech Support and we will help however possible.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support
