Based on a cutting-edge new architecture, Vertex 2 Solid State Drives deliver unprecedented performance while maintaining an affordable storage solution for early adopters looking to update their systems with the latest technology. OCZ designed the Vertex 2 to excel in both sequential and random read/write rates to take your PC or notebook productivity to the next level, featuring superb 4KB random writes up to 50,000 IOPS to give a performance edge over the previous generation. Using the latest controller technology, Vertex 2 not only provides a faster, more responsive PC experience, but promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. Built with SATA 3Gb/s, the Vertex 2 Series easily integrates into today’s mobile and desktop platforms and features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan as the ultimate Windows7 notebook or desktop upgrade.

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSD’s translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg Better Performance Built with MLC NAND flash and the latest generation SandForce SF1200 controller featuring award winning DuraClass Technology, the OCZ Vertex 2 40GB SSD delivers industry-leading SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency, with maximum read speed up to 280 MB/s and maximum write speed up to 270 MB/s, plus incredible random 4K write performance of 45,000 IOPS.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Vertex 2 Series SSD’s offer native TRIM support than 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 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The OCZ Vertex 2 Series is specifically designed for notebook computers coming in a 2.5-inch hard drive form factor. In addition, the installation kit includes a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket for matching with 3.5” drive bay to extend the storage of your desktop computer.

Great while it lasted 9/28/2018 8:38:59 AM

Pros: This was amazing to me when I purchased it in 2011... something like $90 for a 40 GB SSD! Worked great for a system drive at the time, but it died slowly about 3 years later causing complete system locks requiring a hard reboot. Took a bit of diagnostics, but I eventually narrowed it down to this drive. Replaced it with a 120 GB Intel SSD around 2014, just after the 3 year warranty had ended for the Vertex 2.

Cons: Short life. The Vertex 2 was known for having a questionable build quality and reliability, and this was no different. Died at about the 3 year mark, just after the warranty expired, so that was a bummer. I've never had any SSD or HDD died as quickly as this did, so I have to take away from its rating for that reason.

Comments: This is a great little drive that does exactly what is supposed to and I fully reccommend an SSD for extreme noticeable performance difference.

My build:
Gigabyte P55 USB3 rev 2.0
OCZ Vertex 2 40 GB SSD
Seagate 750 GB HDD
LG sata DVD burner
Intel i5 760 processor
HD Radeon 5770

It comes with a tray and screws to adapt into the drive bays and was well packaged with plenty of protection. Very fast shipping for it getting to Hawaii; arrived 2 days earlier than promised.

Nice! 12/31/2011 7:18:52 PM

Pros: -Much faster than standard HDD
-Low power consumption

Using this drive for my OS and some frequently used programs. Computer boots up in about 15 seconds, shuts down in about 5. Programs stored on it open and work so quickly.

Cons: Cost per GB is still rather high, especially compared to HDD's

Overall Review: Somewhat regret getting a 40GB model rather then a larger one, but the drive itself is still excellent.

Very Fast 11/14/2011 5:45:38 AM

Pros: I'm using this in a 1.6GHz Atom build for use as a HTPC. I wanted a SSD to keep the noise down since it's sitting in the living room. With 2GB of RAM, the SSD helps the little 1.6GHz Atom boot Windows 7 Home Premium in ~25 seconds. Not too shabby if you ask me.

Cons: None.

Still going 10/27/2011 11:00:02 PM

Comments: I am wondering why so many of you guys are having problems. These do not play well with older iron or OS's.
A simple BIOS update may not be enough, look for a slic version...let system idle without logging a few hours weekly. It's worked for me for over a year, NO problems.

Create a backup of your OS and have a restore disc!

4 stars because nothing rates a 5 unless truly phenomenal
