Faster Performance for Cost-Effectiveness
SSDs have 100x greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.
Because many HDDs are needed to achieve the same performance, SSDs offer greater cost effectiveness for IOPS per dollar.
The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards are shock resistant up to 1500g, unlike HDDs with various moving parts.
Less Power, Silent Operation
SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard drives, delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment.
With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment.

OCZ certainly ups the Vertex 4's game with its new software, and we commend the fact that the company is striving to improve its products. If you were happy enough with Vertex 4 to buy the drive after our original review, surely you were happy to see the SSD's performance get even better in
With the Vertex 4 128GB model, OCZ have succeeded in creating a downright affordable high performance drive that will help change public perception of SSDs from bleeding-edge novelty to valid (and desirable) mainstream option.

Pros, I bought this drive when it first released. They have made several firmware updates and turned this drive into a beast. With this drive alone I beat all of my friends loading into games or loading multiple programs. In RAID the drives can run over 800mbps. Comes with the mounting tray unlike it's Samsung equivalent.
Obviously you could spend more for a larger SSD but I've had this one for just over 3 months now and have only used ~60GB. I have windows on it, and the programs that I use most. It's a great performer, and the super fast boot time is really great.
The drive failed and took all my data with it. I thought with no moving parts a SSD would be more durable than a hard drive (infinite life in theory?). I was wrong. I have 8 hard drives running fine, but this thing failed.
installed one for my HTPC in the living room since it's onsale right now, not much to say, it does the job, super quick boot up and shutdown, spend minimal time indexing and maximal time watching movies, it's dope!
Computer boots to home screen in about 13 seconds now, down from around 24-25 seconds on a WD Black HDD. Easy setup and install, no problems with the bracket or mounting. Works just as it should. Also it's great not having to wait for the drive to spin up or warm up when you need a file.
