OCZ Vertex 4 SSD review update (2)

MyCE
11 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Let us summarise the most important positive and negative points below: Throughout this review, the OCZ Vertex 4 has gone head to head with the best of the rest, and that includes SSDs such as the Intel 520, the Crucial M4, Plextor PX-256M3, and OCZ’s own Vertex 3. In all but a couple of instances the Vertex 4 has been by far the best performer, and in some cases has been an absolute country mile ahead of the rest.
  • Pros: Silky smooth operation as a system drive., Excellent sequential reading and writing performance., Outstanding 4K random I/O performance at low and high queue depths., SATA 6Gbps support., TRIM support under Windows 7., Ultra fast access times., Completely silent operation., Fast operating system start-up and shutdown times., 5 years warranty.
  • Cons: Nothing to mention

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB Solid State Drive Review

Hardware Secrets
12 November 2012
  • Summary: We can see from our tests that the OCZ Vertex 4 and Kingston HyperX 3K have strengths and weaknesses in different areas. This makes it quite difficult to make clear-cut judgments about which one performs best. The differences in performance between the two drives can be attributed to the different controllers used in each model.

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB Solid State Drive

  • Excerpt: We've looked at many SSDs here, and they've mostly been implementations of the popular SandForce NAND controller.  While this isn't a bad thing, as the performance offered by those drives have been good, it's good to see more competition in the growing SSD market.  The last generation of drives we looked at from OCZ fit this mould.  The Vertex 3 series SSDs used the SF-2280 series of controllers, but with the Vertex 4 series, OCZ chose to go with something different.

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB Solid State Hard Drive SSD Review

[H] Enthusiast
4 October 2012
  • Summary: The Vertex 4 is a departure from the typical model of consumer SSDs that we have seen in the field. The major focus of many manufacturers is fresh out of the box results. These very high burst results do very little to reflect the real difference in performance that actual users will be able to observe after prolonged use.

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB Solid State Hard Drive SSD Review

HardOCP
4 October 2012
  • Summary: The Vertex 4 is a departure from OCZ's tried and true model of using third party controllers and firmware for its SSDs. Taking control of the firmware with the Vertex 4 gives OCZ the ability to tune the SSDs for speed and performance at lower queue depths and optimize for low latency. We test to see if the Everest 2 Platform delivers.

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB Review

maximum pc
28 September 2012
  • Excerpt: OCZ has typically reserved its Vertex label for the highest-performing SSDs in a given generation—using synchronous NAND, for example, rather than the asynchronous NAND found in its less expensive Agility series. The 256GB Vertex 4 carries on that tradition, with 16 128Gb IMFT 25nm synchronous NAND packages on a board with 512MB of DDR3 DRAM cache and OCZ’s new Indilinx Everest 2 controller.
  • Pros: Never-before-seen write speeds; new controller.
  • Cons: High maximum response time

OCZ Vertex 4 128GB

Pro-Clockers
16 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Many of the OCZ models are revisions and improvements of a previous which is the whole reason for the Roman numeral being displayed in the model name. And in the case of the review sample here today we have the Vertex 4. The drive that started it all was a model with had blistering speed (for that time period, 2009) of 280 MB/s and 3K 4K IOPS. Things have really changed as the Vertex 4 brags about speeds of 535 MB/s and 120K 4K IOPS.

  • Conclusion: I think the issue with our OCZ Vertex 4 256GB is not a lack of a star front and center to lead the play; it is the lack of proper recognition of talent that kept it from shining through in our review today. The fact is, the OCZ Vertex 4 256GB uses a controller that has a completely different design compared to almost everything we have tested in the past, and our particular battery of benchmarking software does not necessarily recognize the Everest 2's potential.

OCZ Vertex 4 SSD Revisited: 128GB and New Firmware

HotHardware
6 September 2012
  • Conclusion: To put it succinctly, the 128GB Vertex 4 delivered somewhat of a mixed bag of performance results. In some tests it bested the field, while in others it couldn't keep pace. Like the previous Vertex 4s, the 128GB version didn’t do very well in SANDRA, a couple of the HD Tune tests, or the ATTO write test, but it shined like a jewel in most of the CrystalDiskMark tests and the Default IOMeter test, while it held its own in PCMark 7.
  • Pros: Excellent price and value, 5-year warranty, Much better sequential reads with firmware update
  • Cons: Weak write performance in some tests, Larger-capacity V4s offer same value, better performance
