Transition to the Vertex 2 or Hold Off - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I would wait as well. One thing to consider though that when they come out. They will be the new king so expect a hefty price tag for quite a while.

Got my Vertex 2 for $200, if you can find a sweet deal I say go for it.

As you say the 2 has way better numbers in terms of performance but in real world use as an OS drive I didn't notice any particular change. The Vertex 1 was super fast to boot and the 2 remained so. Now it did feel a tiny bit slicker but seriously that's just as likely to be psychological as it is to be a real effect that I observed. I didn't specifically time the boot difference.

In your situation I wouldn't be in a huge hurry to upgrade specifically my OS SSD unless I had a use in mind for the older drive. In my case it became a games drive and I am very happy with the super fast game loading times in addition to the OS being lovely and quick.
This is great advice.

While benchmark numbers are different between the two generations of drives, real world experience likely won't be much of a noticable difference.

Vertex 2 is just perfect for my sata 2 ports as it maxes them out at a little under 300 MB/s

Of course one could go with sata 3 but then you wont get the trim function. There's
also an option of getting a fast pci sata card but those are rather expensive (not sure
about trim here).

but maybe they will fix that problem on the new vertex models lets hope it. other
than that im sure the vertex 3 with rock.

Hi OP I would be inclined to hang on for the vertex 3.....

As for the pci mega fast PCI Revo versions im fairly certain they dont support Trim, as they are in essense two vertex 2's stuck in a psuedo raid fashion onto a pci card. And Trim isnt supported in raid. yet.....

Id like to know how we can actually tell if this Trim thing is working, we can see it's enabled or not via a bit of typing into CMD, but actually working? I sat hours with my PC logged off and matchsticks holding me eyes open, nite in nite out and seen no hdd led activity EVER! SAD LOL

OCZ say leave your pc logged out overnight a few times a week, yeah right! And they say they cant see why its up to them to spend time writing a program to run Trim, I can like the gazillion £'s these drives cost!

If one hunts about on the OCZ website (not easy it's all over the place) someone, a user has written a program that will do trim as desired, at own risk. Havent been able to locate it again though....

Well as you point out that disabledeletenotify command line thing just lets you know if it's enabled on the Windows side, not if it's being honored at all.

However as far as I know the log off idle time thing is to allow the drives inbuilt garbage collection to do its thing. So it doesn't really let you know anything about TRIM either since garbage collection and TRIM are two different things.

Garbage collection essentially cleans out free cells while the drive detects its in a idle state, where as TRIM commands are sent every time a file delete occurs. They may not be honored immediately but AFAIK it isn't honored way later during idle time. To the real experts if TRIM is fully enabled and working I don't even think idle time garbage collection would be necessary anyway would it?

Finally that manual TRIM program probably just writes a huge file to your free space then deletes it. If trim is enabled then it would be applied to all those newly free cells.

That, or hopefully they'll be on par with pricing for current drives and will push down the price of current drives even further. We can only hope...

I'm planning to wait it out. Have the sites that have been saying possibly February changed their predicted release dates or have the actual manufacturers made statements?
