We've been reviewing OCZ products here at OCIA.net for more than a decade, beginning with their enthusiast grade DDR memory in the early 2000s. The decision to stop manufacturing memory in 2011 was overshadowed by financial troubles that plagued the...

The OCZ Vertex 460 offers quite a lot for not a lot. Performance across the range of tests was good to very good with the SSD coming mid-top table throughout our benchmarking suite. Particular attention should be paid to the sustained 12 hour runs...

After using the Vertex 460 for a little while, I was reminded of the release of the GTX 670. The 670 was released at a lower price point than the GTX 680, but was incredibly close in real world performance. I see the same thing in the Vertex 460 and...

As I begin to wrap things up here, some things that may have been concerning were mentioned, and some were not. We touched on OCZ's bankruptcy and subsequent acquisition by Toshiba, so that should settle things down on the warranty front at least. One...

Had the Vertex 460 been released a few months ago, our conclusion would have sounded quite different. Back then, OCZ was on the ropes. Buffeted by potential bankruptcy on one hand and falling consumer confidence on the other, things certainly didn’t...

The last few months have been a little difficult for OCZ, with the manufacturer not being able to secure adequate supplies of NAND, and running into serious financial difficulties. But as I write this article, OCZ's fortunes have changed substantially...

Toshiba has finished its acquisition of OCZ Technology, saving the latter from bankruptcy and being sold out in parts. It means that OCZ's solid state drive business, which was the company's source of growth at first but eventually led it to the...

OCZ's Vertex 460 isn't necessarily a new product that OCZ needed in their lineup, but it's more of a release that's necessary due to the Toshiba acquisition. Vertex SSDs in the past have always used IMFT NAND and with Toshiba now being able to offer OCZ...

The OCZ Storage Solutions Vertex 460 240GB SSD is excellent SSD, that comes with a great price point and impressive performance. The Vertex 460 is well deserving of the Technology X Gold Seal...

We suspect OCZ is going to have much better access to Toshiba’s NAND engineers, which could result in more finely tuned firmwares, and OCZ’s probably going to get some sweet deals on NAND pricing too. Time will tell.

The OCZ Vertex 460 is a great indicator of the positive course being charted in OCZ's new future with Toshiba, accomplishing what it sets out to do: provide a value-minded, high-performance SSD for the mainstream consumer.

We have just received word that Toshiba has finalized the purchase of the OCZ Technology group, making it a wholly owned subsidiary of the Toshiba Group Company. OCZ will still act independently as OCZ Storage Solutions, focusing on SSDs, meaning that the future of OCZ products is essentially confirmed for the future.

The OCZ Vertex 460 displays the expected speed of an upper tier SSD and then steps up with enterprise sustained and mixed load performance as well, all at an amazing price.

By TheLegitReviews on 90

While only an incremental improvement over the Vertex 450, the OCZ Vertex 460 rings in 2014 with some performance enhancements, a more attractive price tag than it’s predecessor, and now a new company name.

For basic tasks, you might as well stick with the cheapest SATA600 SSD you can find. If you tend to put your storage under heavier loads but don't want to buy the most expensive SSD on the market, the OCZ Vertex 460 is excellent option.

We honestly have very little to complain about the Vertex moving to Barefoot and Toshiba 19nm NAND flash memory. It is a product you'll like and love for a long time, and as such comes recommended by Guru3D.com.

It was also great to see the drive deal with larger, sustained file copy tasks and HD video just as well as small operations. A very good all round drive which offers a boost in performance for those on older generation drives while competing at the high end of the market for desktop and mobile users.

The Vertex 460 performed well in our testing and is launching at a very competitive cost, and that's exactly what is needed to gain back the trust of the community as well as the market share they once enjoyed.
