OCZ Vertex 2 100GB Review

 

Blazing fast. Exclusive high-IOPS firmware. Capacities up to 480GB

Random writes still not in Intel territory

It’s been a long time since we could unequivocally give a Kick Ass award to a solid state drive—the Patriot Torqx has held our Best of the Best spot for a long time—but the OCZ Vertex 2 takes the crown. Prices range from $200 for 50GB to over $1,800...

OCZ Vertex 2 SSD Review

 

Fast, silent and power-efficient; it seems like the only thing not to like about SSDs is the price. OCZ has sent over its Vertex 2 SSD, a 120GB model that straddles the performance/price boundary at around $220. Check out the full SlashGear review...

As ever, when you’re coming at an SSD from a HDD perspective, it’s tough to argue with the speed increase and the sudden disappearance of noise and vibration from a spinning drive. However, not all SSDs are created equal, as the OCZ’s benchmarks prove....

OCZ Vertex 2 Pro SSD previewed: awesome, and could do with some 6Gbps SATA love

 

Speedy SSDs might still be a pipe dream for most of us, but at least picking a top brand isn't a challenge. OCZ would no doubt be a popular choice, and SandFo...

OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD Review

 

The OCZ Vertex 2 has a listed max read speed of 285MB/s and a max write speed of 275MB/s. These transfer rates are on-par with many consumer SSDs on the market today and should be sufficient for most gaming (and non-gaming related) needs. The OCZ...

OCZ Vertex 2 160GB 25nm Solid State Drive

 

A few weeks ago, my main desktop computer decided cash in on me. And before you ask, yes, as the Editor-in-Chief here at APH Networks, I do have tons of replacement components readily available on hand. The thing is, I am not about to reinstall Windows...

OCZ Vertex 2 review

 

The OCZ Vertex 2 is currently one of the fastest 2.5" SSDs available, but is it enough to convince a late adopter that it's worth the extra cost over a hard drive?

SSDs still aren’t ready to push hard drives out completely; capacity and price haven’t reached parity with their mechanical counterparts yet.  That doesn’t mean SSDs aren’t a viable option though, especially as a boot drive with a larger mechanical...

OCZ Vertex 2 120GB 3.5-inch Solid State Drive Review

 

OCZ has been one of the big players in the solid state drive market since the first consumer drives were available.  We have seen them really push the technology to the limit over the past year, but they are also still concerned about you the customer....

Good performance ; 3.5-inch form factor ; TRIM support ; 3-year warranty

The 2.5-inch version performed a little bit better ; More expensive than the 2.5-inch version

I really like that OCZ has released 2 of their most popular solid state drives in the 3.5-inch form factor.  Solid state drives started as boot drives for notebooks, that is why they had the 2.5-inch form factor.  So in the beginning if you wanted to...

OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SATA II SSD

 

OCZ has been in the SSD market for a while and they are one of the companies that isn't afraid to jump on the new technology bandwagon and squeeze as much performance out of technology as they can. They were one of the first companies to jump on the...

Fast read performance ; SandForce SF-1200 controller is very efficient ; Supports TRIM, SMART and NCQ ; Excellent read and write speeds on 4K random tests

3 year warranty seems a bit low ; Doesn't live up to rated speeds

OCZ is not one of the first names that come to mind when we think about storage, but they've come a long way and see to be riding the cutting edge though this revolution. The Vertex 2 based on the Sandforce SF-1200 controller shows excellent...

OCZ Vertex 2 60GB Solid State Drive

 

I still distinctively recall myself saying this out loud back in the early 2000s. "60GB? What can I do with that!?" As we approach the end of 2010, I caught myself saying the same thing -- albeit in an entirely different context. "60GB? What can I do...
