Excerpt: OCZ Technology is the Swiss Army of solid state drives. The company has a product in their line-up for every occasion. Until now desktop users have been forced to pay a premium for smaller 2.5" notebook drives that need a desktop adapter bracket. Notebook drives require larger flash modules and need an adapter to fit in desktops. These premium parts raise the cost of the SSD whether you need them or not.
Excerpt: One of the major ways to increase your computers speed and effectiveness is by upgrading your regular hard drive to an SSD (Solid State Drive). With increased speeds, some other major differences in upgrading to an SSD drive are the fact the an SSD drive is completely silent where as a regular hard drive has moving parts in it which cause all those annoying noises and clicking sounds you most definitely hear when you are working with a laptop computer.

Summary: In fact, it is as good as or better than every SSD we’ve ever tested in nearly every category (although Intel’s drives still reign supreme in random-write speeds). It’s been a long time since we could unequivocally give a Kick Ass award to a solid state drive—the Patriot Torqx has held our Best of the Best spot for a long time—but the OCZ Vertex 2 takes the crown. Prices range from $200 for 50GB to over $1,800 for 480GB; the 100GB version is $400.
Pros: Blazing fast. Exclusive high-IOPS firmware. Capacities up to 480GB.
Excerpt: With one of the largest introduction images I have posted in an article to date comes one of the biggest pricing reductions for the SSD market ever. Just a few days ago we told you that MyDigitalDiscount.com was selling the OCZ Vertex 2 100GB for 379.00 USD, a full 30 Dollars less than Newegg for this class leading next generation SandForce drive. Today OCZ is releasing their new updated 120GB Vertex 2, the Vertex 2 E (for Extended).
Excerpt: Just a couple days ago we published the Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB review and found that in the very competitive 100 / 120GB market the drives from Team SandForce (the collective manufacturers selling SF based drives) were faster in this capacity range for consumers. We also observed and pointed out that the SandForce SF-1200 based drives at this capacity are now quite a bit cheaper than the Crucial C300 128GB, making the SF-1200 the undisputed king in this capacity...
Excerpt: Sendo considerado, actualmente, um dos melhores upgrades que se pode fazer a um PC, um disco SSD representa neste momento um dos grandes avanços dados no campo do armazenamento. Marcas como a OCZ, que nunca tiveram peso no mercado dos discos rígidos, marcaram um patamar no dos SSDs, sempre na vanguarda, e sempre com produtos atractivos. Este OCZ Vertex II de 60GB que aqui irei apresentar hoje, não foge à regra.

Excerpt: Qualche mese fa ho comprato ed installato un SSD Intel X25-M G2 da 160GB ( recensione ). Era il primo disco allo stato solido che testavo personalmente e sono rimasto molto colpito dai risultati ottenuti. Al momento a chiunque mi chieda come poter dare nuova linfa vitale ad un computer anche di un paio d'anni, suggerisco di valutare gli SSD.
Summary: Trotz hohen Preises weiß die OCZ Vertex 2 mit 120 Gigabyte Speicherplatz zu gefallen. Vor allem Geschwindigkeit und Verarbeitungsqualität könnten kaum besser sein. Kurz gesagt: High-End Anwender und Enthusiasten werden an den neuen Solid State Drives mit SandForce-Controller nicht vorbeikommen!
Christoph meint: Rasante SSD!
Pros: sehr sauber und solide verarbeitet, extrem schnell, TRIM-Support
