On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-resolution and then cropped and scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
And there it is, this is the OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" SATA II 100 GB version. You should easily be able to place it somewhere in your chassis. Small and light-weight. OCZ now will include a 3.5" bracket as well so you can mount the SSD conveniently in the standard drive cage.
And though the photo would make you think otherwise, of course, it's a perfect fit for laptops. This SSD would bring a whole lot of performance into that laptop alright, all at low power consumption at 2 Watt and virtually no heat.
When we look at the connectors, we spot the standard power and Serial ATA connector, this drive is SATA2 compatible.
Slim and light-weight at 80 grams, 9.5mm tall, it's the standard for notebook drives and you can easily tuck it away in a regular PC. The OCZ Vertex 2 comes with a three year warranty. Installation wise it's the same as a traditional HDD. Pop it in, connect it, bind it, format it and you are good to go at horribly fast speeds. It uses the same connectors as a SATA storage device.
In this article we test, benchmark and review the OCZ Vertex 3.20 SSD. What a great and fast piece of technology this is. An 20nm NAND flash SSD that is speedy and actually amongst the the rest of the devices tested, but also mroe affordable. Head on over into the review.
