OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD review

2. Package

The OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD (OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G) retails online for about $130 and it is backed by a generous 3-year warranty.

The Vertex 2 uses a sleek dark design. On the front of the package is a picture of the drive as well as the capacity and some of the specifications. On the back of the package there is a more detailed list of the specifications and the features of the Vertex 2.

Included with the Vertex 2 drive is the 2.5" to 3.5" converting bracket, which allows you to mount the drive into your desktop chassis, the mounting screws and an information guide:

The OCZ Vertex 2 uses a SATA II interface for the data transfer. The maximum transfer speed on SATA II interfaces is 3Gbps. Next to the SATA data interface is the SATA power interface to provide the low power needed to run the Vertex 2 drive.

 

The drive uses 34nm NAND MLC flash, the current standard for this class of SSD. The solution is based on the Sandforce SF-1222 controller, which has been proved to offer high reading/writing speeds.

The SF-1200 is a true single-chip SSD Processor designed for volume manufacturing and high performance. The DuraClass technology delivers reliability, endurance, performance and power consumption:

As each generation of flash memory evolves and the silicon geometries shrink - performance, reliability, endurance, and data retention are negatively impacted. DuraWrite technology extends the life of the SSD over conventional controllers, by optimizing writes to the flash memory and delivering a write amplification below 1, without complex DRAM caching requirements.

SandForce DuraClass technology enables the SSD to maximize both the endurance and performance for the life of the drive.

The SF-1200 has also built in AES-128 bit encryption controllable by a configurable user password. This feature prevents would-be thieves from extracting data directly from the flash memory should they ever have access to the drive.
