Are you are contemplating an upgrade to a solid state drive? If so, I recommend reading our evaluation of the OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD before spending your hard earned money. The Vertex 4 is a departure from OCZ's tried and true model of using third party controllers and firmware for its SSDs. Taking control of the firmware with the Vertex 4 gives OCZ the ability to tune the SSDs for speed and performance at lower queue depths and optimize for low latency. We test to see if the Everest 2 Platform delivers.
