After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD Review
Author: Jim Manis
The OCZ Vertex 2 we have in the lab today is one of their latest models featuring the popular high speed Sandforce controller and high performance MLC flash memory. It is rated at a 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write with sustained writes of up to 250MB/s.
The latest generation drives from OCZ have made major advancements over these early designs in both speed and reliability. In the next several pages we will put the OCZ Vertex 2 through our suite of benches and see how this new drive stacks up against other drives including an first generation SSD Raid 0 array.
