OCZ Vertex 4 512GB RAID0 review

 

A 1TB SSD RAID array with 1GB/s reads and writes, what's not to like?

Excellent sequential data performance ; TRIM support in RAID ; Decent price

Random 4K performance could be better ; Reliability concerns ; Firmware update introduced more bugs

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB review

 

Although it's not quite as fast as its Vector sibling, OCZ's Vertex 4 is a very speedy SSD. It uses the company's older IndiLinx Everest 2 controller, but contains the same 25nm, IMTF (Intel Micron Flash Technologies), MLC NAND used in the Vector. The...

The OCZ Vertex 4 currently sits at the sweet spot for SSDs: It's very fast and relatively affordable, and it has 16GB more capacity than many of its competitors.

OCZ Vertex 4 SSD review (25)

 

Silky smooth operation as a system drive., Excellent sequential reading and writing performance., Outstanding 4K random I/O performance at low and high queue depths., SATA 6Gbps support., TRIM support under Windows 7., Ultra fast access times.,...

Nothing to mention

Let us summarise the most important positive and negative points below: Throughout this review, the OCZ Vertex 4 has gone head to head with the best of the rest, and that includes SSDs such as the Intel 520, the Crucial M4, Plextor PX-256M3, and OCZ’s...

OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD Review

 

With the release of their Vertex 4 series of SSDs, OCZ took the first steps towards re-introducing computer enthusiasts to the “Indilinx” brand name.

Good synthetic and real-world performance ; Quick firmware updates ; Price ; 5 year warranty

Less-than-optimal non-TRIM environment performance ; Semi-plastic case

Thanks to quick and effective firmware updates, the Vertex 4 128GB has rapidly matured into an excellent drive that continues the legacy

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD review

 

Time was, when OCZ was typically first out of the gate with a range of SSDs based on any new incarnation of SandForce controllers. Yet, the first generation of the company's popular Vertex drives were powered by Indilinx's Barefoot controller. Now,...

OCZ's latest SSD refresh gives SandForce the boot and utilises its own in-house controller.

OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD Review - FunkyKit

 

We've seen a lot of SSDs from OCZ here at Funkykit, now we have another one! This time it is their brand new Vertex 4 series 128 GB drive. The biggest change from Vertex 3 to Vertex 4 is that the Vertex 4 drives use an Indilinx controller rather than...

OCZ’s latest crack at the SSD market has impressed me.

OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD Review

 

The OCZ Vertex 4 SSD is the latest in the line-up of their SSDs. With a read speed of 560MB/sec, a write speed of 430MB/sec and upto a maxiumum 120,000 IOPS ... it's FAST! The Funky Kit review team takes a look at the 128GB version, and finds out just...

Very fast, especially with small files ; Best AS SSD results we've ever seen ; Good price ; Comes with a 2.5" to 3.5" adaptor ; 8GB more space than the previous generation

Offset mounting on the 2.5" to 3.5" adaptor doesn't look as nice as centered would ; Doesn't quite manage to speeds the box says it will ; Mail In Rebates on older drives make them significantly cheaper. If you like MIRs

OCZ's latest crack at the SSD market has impressed me.

OCZ Vertex 4 128 GB: Revisiting Write Performance With Firmware 1.5

 

In our recent look at the Vertex 4 SSD equipped with firmware 1.4, we found that the 128 GB drive's write performance depended heavily on ...

One of our goals here at Tom's Hardware is to test the latest hardware thoroughly, so that you can be sure you have a complete look at performance before making a buying decision. OCZ's claim that the Vertex 4 should recover compelled us to collect...

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB Review

 

With a second generation Everest controller, can the Vertex 4 rise above the rest?

The original Everest controller OCZ used for its Octane SSDs left us disappointed – the 1.13 firmware we reviewed it with was noticeably slower than both Crucial’s M4 and Samsung’s 830 drives. Thankfully, with the Vertex 4 256GB, OCZ has shown us that...
