OCZ Vertex Series | 120GB
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Oct 14, 2009

The OCZ Vertex Series is an internal 2.5" Solid State SATA II hard drive that comes in 30GB, 60GB, 120GB and 250GB capacities. Released in early 2009, the Vertex is the first to use a new Barefoot SSD controller which has improved efficiency and reduced lag. The read/write speeds are 230MB per second and 135MB per second respectively for the 30GB version, and 250MB/sec and 160MB/sec for the 250GB version. RAID 0 (striped) support is also featured which allows you to run multiple drives together and have them recognized as one drive. These work equally well in desktop and laptop computers and are becoming more and more popular with the latter, owing to their indestructible design and super-fast, noiseless and not mention low power consuming construction. They have been rated at 1.5 million hours MTBF (mean time before failure) and come with a three year company warranty. Features 30GB, 60GB, 120GB ... PROS: (1) Seek time less than 0.1ms (2) 230MB/sec read - 135mb/sec write (3) 250MB/sec read - 160mb/sec write with 250GB version (4) physically resilient - can take many times the shock of a mechanical drive, even while being used (5) lower power consumption than mechanical drive alternatives ... CONS: (1) high prices (in general, as well as in comparison to other Indilinx based drives) (2) high price per GB and much lower capacities than mechanical drives (3) unrefined technology in all its gory glory - only for enthusiasts who enjoy being on the bleeding edge (4) has recently lost price/performance ground to the new 34nm mainstream Intel offerings

Good SSD
5 Star Review   By member BEWerner - Sep 8, 2009   

Strengths: Super Fast, quiet, no vibration

Weakness: expensive

I put one in my desktop which has a second drive: a 10,000 rpm Velocirapter. The OCZ Vertex is definitely faster when compared head to head. I put another one in my dual core notebook: everything runs noticeably faster. Applications snap open. Start up time is way shorter. This drive rocks.
