OCZ Solid 2, 30 GB
OCZ Solid 2, 60 GB
OCZ Solid 2, 120 GB
The Solid 2 series is affordable, too. It is similar to the above-described Onyx but its top capacity is a little higher. It has an updated Indilinx controller with 64 MB of cache inside. The 30GB models from the Onyx and Solid 2 series have the same speed specs, but the 60GB Solid 2 is faster than its Onyx counterpart, promising a read speed up to 200 MBps and a write speed up to 120 MBps. The 120MB Solid 2 model is quite a serious one already as its specified read and write speeds are as high as 220 MBps and 130 MBps, respectively.
Interestingly, the specified capacity of the Onyx is 32 gigabytes (which is a power of 2 when measured in gigabytes) whereas the capacity of the Solid 2 series models is a multiple of 10 gigabytes. But when you take a look at the real formatted capacity of the junior models of these two series, you will find them to be the same at 30533 megabytes. Misleading the customer like that doesn’t look pretty.
