OCZ Vertex 450 256GB review

 

The latest in OCZ's line up of SSDs is quite the performer

Very competitve speeds ; In-house firmware ; Nipping at the heels of the Samsung Pro drive

Random read speed could be better ; Pricey

The Vertex 450 is right up there in almost every metric. Sequential reads and writes are close enough to the competition that it hardly matters, and so are our application tests, though you can say that of every drive. Random write performance is as...

OCZ Technology Vertex 4 SSD

 

Works well, much faster than a hard-disk loaded operating system in a matter of minutes!

Not quite as fast under test as claimed but varied according to file size.

Fantastic SSD, great speed and reliability. Has boosted performance of my 2011 27" iMac and things like Photoshop and Lightroom load in no time what so ever!

OCZ Technology Vertex 4 SSD

 

Bought as the W7 System disc for my latest build. Install was very quick and error free. I have been running for a couple af weeks now and I have had no problems. Great to escape from "gramophone" technolgy at last. (not quite true - I have included a...

I would ideally have liked a larger capacity, but my budget limited me. However, prices have fallen steeply over the last 6 months so if I was buying again in a couple of years I would expect to get a 512GB drive for a similar price.
