    Default OCZ Vertex SSD

    OCZ's Vertex is a multi-layer SSD that features the Indilinx 'Barefoot' controller, promising very fast performance numbers, particularly with Write operations. OCZ's Vertex is the latest in their product lineup, and the performance claims sound impressive. Today we’ll pit it against some of the fastest traditional hard disk drives, and also alongside Intel's renowned X-25M SSD, and see if this OCZ Vertex can impress.

    Very nice, you must be happy with those numbers. The Vertex is really an outstanding SSD. Great performance numbers but the firmware updates, Wiper utility, and customer support really make the difference.

    Very nice review there Jake,
    the price of this SSD is still very very expansive...i would probably need to sell one of my kidneys to
    afford this beauty LOL

    That was a full on detailed review Jake, Well done to you.

    Although still expensive (relatively) It is getting to the point where with this price/performance more of us will make the jump..... I'm definately considering something like this.

    Grumpy, you should hold off until prices drop, go with a 300GB VelociRaptor for now.

    I'd have to agree with this, and I'll also add that the controller in the OCZ SSDs, after they've been used a bit, show a significant drop in performance. Still, I'd wait for SATA3. :cool:

    All SSDs will suffer some performance loss, true. OCZ's Wiper utility is designed to recoup those performance losses, which is partly what also makes the Vertex such a great drive since other manufacturers have no such utility.

    I had no idea that such a utility exists. Do you know of anyone that has compared brand new drive performance to performance after the wiper utility has run?
