Complete Noob to SSD

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I was just quickly browsing around and came across 2 OCZ's that appeared to be decent, though I don't really know much about SSD.

Is there any difference between the OCZ Vertex and Agility series?

The vertex has 50,000 IOPS as where the Agilty 2 only has 10,000. The vertex 2 will last longer basically and a tad faster.

Seeing a larger and larger number of OCZ owners reporting SSD failures. Not sure if it's a trend or what but I would probably consider a G.Skill or Mushkin SSD at this point. Just ensure it's based on SandForce 1200/1222 controller.
At long last...

The vertex is the 2nd best SSD out right now along other brands that use the same sandforce controller.

The best SSD is the Crucial RealSSD C300.

the difference is simple

Agility 2 uses a lame-duck-ized version of the firmware, which is slower at 10k IOPS

so really Agility 2 is a complete rip off, and would only be worth it if it were actually sold at a cheaper rate... which it usually isn't.

So it's only purpose is to make some computers not reach their full potential...

It's laptops that are having issues with the vertex 2.I wouldn't recommend one for the laptop.I've had mine for 6 months and it works beautifully.

Why would laptops have problems with the SSD and not desktops?
