2. The package
OCZ Apex 120GB SSD retails for around $300 ($274 after $25 mail-in rebate). This is a good price for a 120GB SSD. The product is backed by a a two-year of warranty, which is much less than usual warranty offered for a HDD.
The retail package is small and easily recognizable, with the 'OCZ Technology' among with 'Apex Series 120GB' logos on it.
The drive is carefully placed into an anti-static bag.
The drive is also very lightweight ~77grams and of course, it has the typical 2.5"size.
The SATA I/II compatible drive comes with the typical power and signal connectors. This means you can easily use this as an replacement of your laptop's HDD or even install it to your PC making it almost noiseless.
The Apex series include the Samsung memory banks with two JMicron YMF602 controllers in Raid 0 configuration, offering a better performance compared with non-raid solutions. Hopefully this setup could eliminate/improve the shutter issues that many users are facing with MLC designs.
