Based on a cutting-edge new architecture, Vertex 2 Solid State Drives raise the bar once again and deliver unprecedented performance for the complete gamut of gaming and professional multimedia applications. OCZ designed the Vertex 2 to surpass the competition where it counts most, pushing the limits in both sequential and random read/write rates. With spectacular performance in 4k file writes up to 50,000 IOPS, these latest drives take productivity to the next level with over ten times the performance of the previous generation. Using the latest controller technology, Vertex 2 not only provides a faster, more responsive PC experience, but promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives.
With sheer performance that outpaces the competition, the Vertex 2 doesn’t lose sight of what makes an SSD the ideal storage alternative to hard drives and delivers the quality, reliability, and durability demanded by consumers that will not settle for anything but the best. Built with SATA 3Gb/s, the Vertex 2 Series easily integrates into today’s mobile and desktop platforms and features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan as the ultimate Windows 7 notebook or desktop upgrade.
OCZ Vertex 2 SSDs are available in 50GB to 480GB and come backed by a 3-year warranty and 2 million hour MTBF for ultimate peace of mind.

It really rocked my PC for all that time... Boot time and access times are great, the day-to-day use is wonderful, everything is so quick! Perfect to install your OS into (and have a 1TO HDD for storage)
I bought the original vertex and it failed after six months. I then bought the vertex 2. 18 months later the drive developed enough bad sections that cripple the drive performance. Very disappointed in OCZ, I have their RAM, PS, and SSD.
The SSD was working fine but after 10 months it disappeared from the bios and did not show up in Windows 7. Lucky Windows was installed on a different drive (hhd) otherwise the computer would've have stopped working altogether and lucky I had backup. The SSD is now UPS ($40) to OCZ for fix and waiting. Supposedly OCZ will pay for the return shipment. I bought the ssd at $200 and i was very satisfied when it was working. I hear even with a new or fixed ssd, the problem still persist as in stop working in several months, and when working, is glichy...my brother used it at his company and has the same problem even with the updated firmware.
Very disappointed in this product. At first, the speed of the SSD was very impressive and I didn't have a problem for about 3 months; then it died. Afterwards, when i had RMA'd it, everything looked to be going smoothly after i had received a completely new vertex 2; until it died 3 months later. After having my 3rd revision of the SSD, i can only wait to see 3 months later if the SSD will die once again
ssd is the future. spinning drives in laptops seems so 20th century now. price keeps coming down so keep watching. mail in rebate is a bit annowing and I actually missed the deadline so get on top of it.
I've had this ssd for over a year, and despite the apparent high frequency of other people's SSD Vertex 2's going bad, mine has been nothing but joy to own. I have had absolutely no problems with my SSD, have not ever had to update firmware, and have never experienced blue screens. Perhaps I may have received a good copy? Nonetheless, because of my personal experience with this SSD, at the time of writing, I recommend this SSD for those still using SATA2 interface.
