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 90GB SSD delivers industry-leading SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency, with maximum read speed up to 285 MB/s and maximum write speed up to 275 MB/s, plus incredible random 4K write performance of 50,000 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.

Was great until it died

Pros: Fast
Quiet (duh)

Cons: Died after 3 years

Other Thoughts: I bought this based on initial reviews. Now that I see that a ton of people have issues of the drive dying after 3 years, I will never again buy an OCZ SSD. Mine died right after the warranty period as well.

I will move onto samsung SSDs with the 5 year warranty.

drive didn't last

Pros: Acceptable speed for an SSD.

Cons: Died less than 1 year after the warranty expired. It gave no warning that anything was wrong. One day it just stopped appearing in the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Sometimes unplugging everything, then plugging it back in, then doing a BIOS reset would allow the device to be seen for a couple minutes, so I was able to back it up over the course of multiple reboots.

Dont last long

Pros: Fast while they lasted!!

Cons: I bought 3 of these in 2010 and just had one fail a month ago and now another failed.... stay away from these drives they have a short life span!!!

Other Thoughts: I been building computers for along time and never had a mechanical drive fail on me. i thought SSD was supposed to have a longer life span and be more reliable but as it is now i have had 2 ssd's fail on me. Never had problems with OCZ products but now i dont think i will ever buy OCZ again. I always bought OCZ ram also but after this i dont think ill ever use a OCZ product again.

Died within 3 years

Pros: Relatively cheap at time of purchase. Boots Windows 7 Pro in around 17 seconds. 3 year Warranty.

Cons: Died after 2.5 years.

Other Thoughts: I'm a few days into the RMA process and it appears to be dragging on a little. I don't want to be without a computer for 10-15 business days so I purchased another SSD (from a different manufacturer)

Awesome until it died

Comments: Will probably use an Intel on my work machine and use the RMA'd drive for a less important computer that I won't put to sleep such as my media center

Manufacturer Response:
We aplogize for the problem. On many systems we do recommend disabling sleep mode, as this can create problems. Please visit the link below and create a support ticket to arrange for an RMA for a replacement drive. We care about our customers and will be happy to assist you. Thank you

2nd RMA in less than 1.5 years

Comments: Noticed that these are getting hard to find now and stock levels won't be back up for some time. I'm hoping this is a sign that OCZ is fixing whatever manufacturing flaw is in these before shipping more out to be sold (I can dream right?). This goes to show you, OCZ, stop cutting corners and using low quality parts to cut costs. In the end, it's costing you way more to have to undo your mess in not just money but also customer loyalty and your image as a company. Now I'm worried that my dual Vertex 3s will have the same fate. Was considering a Vertex 4 but now I will definitely be buying Intel due to their good track record.
