OCZ Vertex 4 Review

OCZ has moved away from Sandforce and are now using the Indilinx Everest 2 firmware. How does it compare to the competition?

I want to first say that we did a few tests but I still need to do more. Also, a new firmware has been released since the making of this video (last week). I will install the new firmware and do some more benchmarks for everyone when I get back to town. 

I think OCZ was wise to purchase Indilinx. Now they have control of the controller! It is only going to get better from here.

Check out the video and I will post some more benchmarks soon.

New firmware, solid design, more reliable than last generation.

Slower write speeds than most of the competition with the stock firmware.

 I picked up a 120gb version a week ago, replacing a 60gb vertex2 for my OS drive. Not upgraded the FW yet. crystal disck
