Given what we had already seen from the previous Sandforce-based SSDs, the Vertex 2 was never going to disappoint in terms of performance. However taking into account OCZ's current pricing strategy and the sequential and IOPS (Input/Output...

The OCZ Vertex was a fun product to review to get back in OCZ’s good books, but don’t think that means we’ve given it an easy ride. Sure it did well in some of the Synthetic tests, really pushing ahead in a few, but it didn’t do...

The Vertex 2 line of SSDs from OCZ are aimed at the enthusiast market but I would want it in any business notebook. The drives come in capacities from 50GB to 480GB and feature consistent read and writes speeds of 285MB/s and 275MB/s for...

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...

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...

With the wide selection of SSDs on the market today, there is no question that some drives will be slower than others. Reviewers like ourselves and buyers alike understand that some models will score differently, and we can choose with our wallets....

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 continues to produce solid state drives that excel in access speed, read/write throughput and input/output operations per second. The 120Gb 3.5" Vertex 2 is equal to or better than its 2.5" SandForce-based siblings in most performance tests...

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...

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...

The OCZ Vertex 2 is a great solid state drive. It not only beats the previous Vertex series by a large margin, but also beats other similar drives from other competitors. While SSD’s are still expensive, a small drive like this is a great starter...
