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....

OCZ Technology manufactures a model for any price or performance range. We already took a look at their budget/mainstream focused Agility; today we have a chance to put their new Vertex 2 to the test. We have in our lab's the 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 SATA...

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...

SSDs have really come a long way over their short existence. From the meager 60MB/s reads to the 285MB/s read bandwidth found on the Vertex 2 you can see how the new Sandforce 1200 controller has improved SSD performance over SATA3. I can only...

With IOzone, the performance was spot-on for these large sequential file reads and writes. The OCZ Vertex 2 SSD benchmark results under Linux certainly speak for themselves: this is one heck of a fast SSD. The OCZ Vertex 2 with its SandForce SF-1200...

We have heard a lot of good things about the OCZ SSD drives in the past. It is unfortunate that their focus was not in Asia. It is only recently we have the opportunity to get our hands on the Vertex 2. As spec, the SSD drive is able to achieve what...

Having put the Vertex 2 to the test, I was amazed to see its outstanding overall performance. The write speeds were especially impressive when compared to drives we have tested in the past. Although their Agility series is known for its mid-range...

The OCZ Vertex 2 SSD is a must-have for any performance enthusiasts parts list. OCZ has produced an insanely fast solid state drive with competitive pricing. The drive comes in a 2.5? format, so it should work with most SATA capable...

After being so thoroughly impressed by the original Vertex 60GB just a few short months ago, it was hard to imagine that we'd be similarly impressed by any follow-up to that drive, but thanks to its SandForce controller and a price point which...

Die OCZ Vertex 2 60GB setzt auf den Sandforce-Controller 1222TA3, der trotz fehlendem Pufferspeicher eine hervorragende Schreibleistung bietet. Der hochkomplexe Algorithmus fasst - vereinfacht gesagt - die Daten vor dem Schreibvorgang zusammen und...

International Review By Hardware Factory on

Die OCZ Vertex 2 ist die derzeit insgesamt schnellste SATA2-MLC-SSD auf dem Markt. Erstaunlicherweise spiegelt sich dies im Preis nicht wieder. Mit derzeit 110-120 darf die OCZ als sehr erschwinglich bezeichnet werden und verdient unsere...

International Review By Hardware.Info on

Met de Vertex 2 Extended serie zorgt OCZ ervoor dat de SandForce SSD's per gigabyte een stuk vriendelijker geprijsd zijn. We mogen voorzichtig concluderen dat er een lichte daling van de prestaties is, maar aangezien we geen...
