Based on a cutting-edge new architecture, Vertex 2 Solid State Drives raise the bar once again and deliver unprecedented performance for the complete gamut of gaming and professional multimedia applications. OCZ designed the Vertex 2 to surpass the competition where it counts most, pushing the limits in both sequential and random read/write rates. With spectacular performance in 4k file writes up to 50,000 IOPS, these latest drives take productivity to the next level with over ten times the performance of 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.

With sheer performance that outpaces the competition, the Vertex 2 doesn’t lose sight of what makes an SSD the ideal storage alternative to hard drives and delivers the quality, reliability, and durability demanded by consumers that will not settle for anything but the best. 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 Windows 7 notebook or desktop 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 40GB to 480GB capacities, the Vertex 2 is an ideal hard drive replacement for first-time SSD upgraders in need of primary laptop 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 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.

Frustration 4/5/2013 6:34:36 AM

Pros: Runs somewhat faster. Shaves off about a minute to boot Windows 8, 30 seconds for Ubuntu.

Cons: Frustration. Although the support staff is prompt with the RMA once you send it, there is no reason that these drives should continue to fail so much. Mine failed, I got an RMA, then when I opened the brand new one I got in the mail, my BIOS failed to recognize it. Unacceptable.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear generalspades,

I am sorry to read of your first failure and DOA replacement. It is possible the replacement was damaged in shipping, but unlikely considering your history of problems with the first drive. Please contact our Support as soon as possible and note your previous RMA and DOA replacement. We will either get the drive working or make alternate arrangements with you.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

SSD simply died 6/28/2012 9:27:17 AM

Comments: I have already created a ticket with OCZ requesting an RMA so that I can return the drive for replacement under warranty from them. I am hopeful that the process won't take a long time since I feel like my machine is crawling with a mechanical drive running again.

Fortunately, I had a full system backup that was only a week old so I was able to recover my system rather quickly once I replaced the drive. I would strongly suggest that you create frequent system backups if you are using a OCZ SSD drive.

Another One Bites the Dust:( 5/24/2012 12:41:34 AM

Comments: Wish I had read more reviews but saw Maximum PC give the "Kick-A**" award. The problem is the long term they just run great and without any warning...Dead, so be warned move all your important files off the drive just use it for OS ONLY!!! Well now I get to see how good OCZ's RMA warranty is....

My experience with my first SSD 5/19/2012 2:51:27 PM

Comments: I have yet to install the replacement drive into my computer - gunshy I guess, even after 1 year. Seems that 1% of OCZ SSD owners are quite a few.

2 drives failed 3/9/2012 12:13:54 AM

Comments: I have given up on OCZ and have put in an order for the Crucial M4. From the looks of the reviews, my luck with this drive should be much better.
