Default OCZ Vertex 2 60GB Solid State Drive review

I still distinctively recall myself saying this out loud back in the early 2000s. "60GB? What can I do with that!?" As we approach the end of 2010, I caught myself saying the same thing -- albeit in an entirely different context. "60GB? What can I do with that!?" In the days where 1000GB hard drives are a dime a dozen, the rise of solid state drives in recent years among enthusiasts and high end computer users has always been focused on one thing: Performance. Sure, you can fill up a 60GB drive with a couple movies and a few songs, but that's not the point. Because the cost-per-gigabyte of an SSD is probably more than thirty times higher than a traditional mechanical hard drive at the time of writing this review, most users probably can't afford to use them for mass storage -- and at the same time, it is not a practical solution at the time being, either. After all, you probably don't go through everything in your hard drive every single day, right? Therefore, here is a popular solution for people trying to squeeze more performance out of their system: Buy a modest capacity SSD for your operating system and all your programs, and a big fat hard drive to store everything else. The OCZ Vertex 2 60GB solid state drive we are reviewing today is designed for this very purpose. Powered by the popular SandForce SF-1200 controller, promising up to 285MB/s and 275MB/s read and write speed respectively, 0.1ms access latency, and up to 50,000 IOPS, how well does this high performance storage device improve your computing experience? Read on to find out!
