In House Review - OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD

Postby Ian on Mon Oct 28, 2013 11:30 pm

CDRLabs has taken a long overdue look at OCZ's Vertex 450 solid state drive. Bridging the gap between high performance and mainstream solid-state storage, the ultra-slim Vertex 450 is based on OCZ's Indilinx Barefoot 3 M10 controller. Developed entirely in-house, this cutting-edge controller is powered by both an ARM Cortex processor and OCZ's own Aragon co-processor and features an advanced, multi-level ECC engine, low write amplification, efficient garbage collection, and adaptive NAND flash management. The Vertex 450 is also equipped with 20nm synchronous MLC NAND and an extra large DRAM cache to deliver up to 540MB/s read and 525MB/s write speeds along with a maximum of 90,000 4KB random write IOPS.

Wow, the speed is impressive. I like 256GB-SSDs, it´s nice to see that some manufacturers not switch to 240GB. The GC looks also good, important for ppl who use older OS.

But OCZ still have a bad reputation, even if the newer SSDs are better (hope they don´t make the same shit as in former series and switch after the reviews to cheaper NAND). And your negative comment about price is so true, I don´t see a reason to pay 50€ more than for a Sandisk Ultra Plus.
