OCZ Vertex 2 review
8 March 2011
Conclusion: 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 drive for data storage.
Conclusion: Breaking the 1 GBps mark is a monumental step for any storage subsystem, and to push nearly 30% faster than that in certain tests is a testament to the solid design of the OCZ Vertex 2 drives.
OCZ Vertex 2 120GB 3.5-inch Solid State Drive Review
7 February 2011
Summary: Final Thoughts
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.
Pros: – Good performance, – 3.5inch form factor, – TRIM support, – 3year warranty
Cons: – The 2.5inch version performed a little bit better, – More expensive than the 2.5inch version
Summary: 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 we've run, and the larger size means easier...
Conclusion: PCMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed for Windows Vista offering one-click simplicity for casual users and detailed, professional grade testing for industry, press and enthusiasts.
Conclusion: Overall, the performance of the OCZ Vertex 2 60Gb SSD was pretty respectable. However, I couldn't understand why the linear read speed was marginally slower than other SSDs we've tested. I guess the rumours are TRUE about the slight dip in performance on lower capacity SSDs.
Conclusion: The Good Excellent read and write performance Attractive cost-per-GB TRIM support The Bad Drive may not reach peak performance with incompressible data The OCZ Vertex 2E 120GB solid-state drive can be purchased from SCAN.co.uk *.
Conclusion: There's no doubt the performance of the OCZ Vertex 2 120Gb SSD (3.5") is extremely good. During our Everest disk tests, it produced some excellent scores with an average linear read speed of 242.8 Mb/sec, and an average linear write speed of 238.7 Mb/sec.
