- SATA II
Great way to speed up an old SATA II computer 01/12/2013
OCZ has finally made these drives stable.
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.
