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. So in the beginning if you wanted to use one in your desktop you had to buy an adapter or hope that your drive came with one. The case manufacturers caught up and now 2.5-inch mounting systems are pretty much standard on cases.
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
Excerpt: As SSDs continue to grow in popularity and more users realise their value, companies are releasing a staggering array of drives to market. Months ago OCZ released the Vertex 2 Pro, an enterprise class product which delivered staggering performance. This was followed shortly afterwards by the OCZ Vertex LE, part of a 5,000 unit limited edition run based around a hybrid Sandforce SF 1200/1500 controller.
