OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD review

3. OCZ Toolbox

Installing the OCZ Vertex 60GB SSD product is very easy, nothing to care about. After booting into Windows, we were able to get the first amount of information with CrystalDiskInfo software. The product came in with firmware version 1.25 installed:

The Vertex 2 SSD is also compatible with the OCZ Toolbox software.  Developed by OCZ and  SandForce, the software is packed full of features that you are going to find useful over the life of the drive.

One of the most important features of the software is the option to update the firmware on the drive. Now all you do is select the firmware you want to update the drive with and the utility will do its job. Here is how the OCZ Toolbox v2.22 identified our drive , with firmware v.1.25 installed:

Strangely, after checking for a new firmware and updating the drive, the installed firmware revision was v1.24 :

The software offers several other options such as a resetting the drive to factory specifications, set the World Wide Name, format the drive with aligned sectors, set and remove a password and secure erase the drive.
