OCZ Vertex 2E 60GB 2.5" SSD review
25 March 2012
Conclusion: 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 matches its predecessor, we've fallen even more deeply...
Not even 6 months after we gave the Vertex 2 a high score, this SSD went into catastrophic meltdown...
We went to a couple of top data recovery companies to see if any data could be restored but it seems that every SSD has its unique controller (which was the item that failed) and apparently...
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: 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.
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.
