OCZ Apex 120GB SSD
Value wise the Apex is also a little disappointing. While we appreciate that cutting edge tech always carries a premium, the cost per gigabyte of the Apex at ￡2.87 in comparison to the G.Skill Titan’s ￡1.83 doesn’t make it as appealing (if you can ever call that sort of price per Gigabyte appealing!), although it’s still a lot better than the ￡4.50 per Gigabyte Intel charges for its 80GB X25-M.
If you’re genuinely thinking about splashing this sort of cash on an SSD though, rather than opt for the OCZ Apex 120GB SSD, you might as well go the whole hog and grab the G.Skill, which packs more well rounded overall performance and more than twice the capacity for just ￡125 more! That might sound like a lot, but in the world of SSDs it really is worth it, especially if you’re considering using the drive as a boot disk for a high end system – after all, you can never have too much hard drive space.
While the OCZ Apex 120GB is still an admirable step up from the previous generation of OCZ SSDs thanks to the innovative use of the dual JMicron drive controllers, its performance isn’t quite what we’d hoped for considering what we know the drive’s design is capable of. Add to this the unattractive price tag and you end up with a drive that, while strong on its own merits, struggles in comparison to what else is out there in the market.
