The OCZ Vertex 4 performed admirably during our testing and was consistently at the top when compare to other 128GB SSD’s. The Vertex 4 even managed to come out ahead of some 240GB+ drives in several of the test results. The Vertex 4 showed rock solid stability and took all the testing we could throw at it, and there was a lot of it! The Indilinx Everest 2 controller is OCZ’s second go around since acquiring Indilinx last year, and great strides have been made since the acquisition. OCZ has added unique features to the Everest 2 controller based SSDs, such as Ndurance 2.0, auto encryption and an industry leading five year warranty, all of which add even more value to the product.
At the time of this review the Vertex 4 128GB is priced at $179 USD, which is comparable to other SSDs with similar performance ratings. If a 64GB version of the Vertex 4 is large enough for your application, then a $95 USD price tag is hard to beat.
Given the price, performance, and value of the OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD, it is easy for me to recommend this drive to anyone looking for a SSD with this storage capacity.
