Great as an upgrade for your laptop, OCZ's 240GB Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5" Solid State Drive is an internal solid-state storage drive that delivers 240GB of memory, superior performance, and reliability. Although this drive is sized for your laptop, the 3.5" adapter allows you to upgrade your desktop as well. Whether you're upgrading either kind of computer, you will be able to load games, programs, large video or audio files, or your operating system much more quickly than if you're using a traditional hard disk drive. The drive features maximum read speeds of up to 285 MB/s, maximum write speeds of up to 275 MB/s, and sustained write speeds of 250 MB/s. It has also clocked 4K file writes up to 50,000 IOPS.

So as to perform this quickly, the drive utilizes solid state MLC NAND flash components, an SATA 3 Gbps bus interface, and MAX IOPS Firmware. Beyond speed, it also features native TRIM support so your drive will perform over the long haul and RAID support so that you can combine it with other drives for even faster throughput and greater, more secure memory. Along with these features, this drive boasts the same advantages of other solid state drives in that it uses solid-state technologies to perform with less energy, noise, and required power than traditional hard disk drives. It also is shock resistant so you most likely won't need to worry about your drive if you accidentally drop your computer, unlike traditional hard disk drives. Whether you're upgrading a traditional hard disk drive or older solid state drive, OCZ's 240GB Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5" Solid State Drive is sure to feel like more than just a breath of fresh air.

        Comments about OCZ 240GB Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5" Solid State Drive:

        I got the SSD as a replacement for the boot/program drive in my video & photo editing computer; the old hard drive gave out! The SSD drive is great used with a 2nd, regular hard drive for storing photos and video clips--it is fast and apparently very reliable.

              Comments about OCZ 240GB Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5" Solid State Drive:

              I installed the Vertex 2 240GB SSD in my (early 2008) MacBook Pro (2.5Ghz Intel Core2Duo, 4GB RAM) and the performance gains were phenomenal! Boot times for Snow Leopard went from almost a minute and a half to just about 25 seconds. The system is much more responsive and everything loads almost instantly, even though my system only has a SATA 1 (1.5 Gbit/s) bus. I can only imagine how this SSD would perform in a newer SATA 2 system. B&H had the best price I could find online [...] I highly recommend this upgrade - much more profound than increasing RAM and still cheaper than a new laptop. It also ran well when I upgraded to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
