Great to boost HD performance using this SSD

Pros:Solid way to improve system performance for Operating System boot and applications

Cons:SSD's keep coming down in price - buy what you can afford.

The Bottom Line: A 1TB Seagate Baracuda costs $60 and the 60GB OCZ costs $150. Cost, storage capacity, performance and reliability must all be taken into consideration before you purchase.


I have purchased a few of the OCZ Technology Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G Solid State Drive (60 GB) SSD's [SATA II type] for use in desktop Windows 7 systems. The people who use the systems setup with this drive love them.  The RevoDrive is another product from OCZ Technology that is even faster - I wrote a separate review on that; just search on RevoDrive.

This is a great way to boost hard drive performance. They cost approx. $140 to $150 in Oct/Nov of 2010.  Worked perfectly when setting up a Windows 7 Ultimate system. No problems - very easy.

Kit also comes with a 3.5-inch adapter to put in a desktop 3.5-inch drive bay. This drive fits a 2.5 set-up. Consumes very little power.

Buy.com and TigerDirect.com both sell the OCZ drives plus their RevoDrive series.  If you really want to give your system a performance kick then check out their 120 or 180 GB version of their RevoDrive. 

This drive can also be described or listed as:

OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Performance Series Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I am an independent consultant and have no relationship or contacts at any of these companies.  Good luck!
