This. Mine is OCZSSD2-2VTXE60, but its 55.7 GB.

So is there no actual way of telling what version you have based on the model number? My dad just ordered one before this news got huge (an 80GB Vertex 2) and it came in today, but I don't want to open it if there's a way to check what version it is, especially since I can then easily return it if it's the 25nm.

My number is 2VTX80G . Not sure if the 80GB ones have issues as I've only heard about the ones in multiples of 32.

The 80Gb drives have 96Gb of NAND for overprovisioning. The drives with 25nm NAND have an E in the part numbers I think.

I think OCZ is going to let customers with 25nm drives RMA for Vertex3's but not exactly sure how it works. I think you have to wait for Vertex3's to come out before RMA.

Wow thats sneaky.

I have the old version thankfully. Shouldn't really have to worry about this kind of thing tho. Probably the last OCZ product i buy if this is how they are gonna play it.

Is there any way to still buy an old version Vertex 2? If not, what is the next-best SSD with the same Sandforce controller? And is this next-best drive slower than the 25nm Vertex 2, or faster?

I can't vouch for any of the other names on that list, but ours are still 34nm NAND.

wow , that is OCZ for you. But other companies pull this kind of stuff, its always better when they sneak in good things, like GB when the switched the UD5 from rev 1.0 to rev 2.0 they used DrMOS and upped the phase count. For the UD7 when they went rev 2.0 they reduced the phase count but added DrMOS. I guess this is part of their cost cutting, but OCZ has already announced they are closing down RAM, for SSDs? and now they pull this, I honestly hope another company takes their place.

You know I used to know Lee and Tom at Mushkin back in 2004-2055 i forget now, I always really liked Mushkin, i am glad to see they are doing well. But I heard tom sold out his part of the company. And lee doesn't work there anymore. I also don't work for TPU anymore either. Just mobo reviews for forums.

Tom still owns his part of the company. smile.gif

We actually had two Lee's. Lee M left to pursue other opportunities, but Lee G is still here!

I can't really say either way what led to OCZ's decision. However, I do hope people go easy on their support/forum guys as it really isn't their fault or decision that led to any of this.

As far as we stand, any change to a product that negatively impacts performance will necessitate a part number/spec change. That's straight from Dev and the President. We will obviously have to move to 25nm at some point, but will continue producing the 34nm drives as long as we can.

When the switch happens, we'll make sure the community knows.
