Could you guy's test the Vertex 4, in a laptop or two. I hear there are some problems with the drive being recognized on first boot, due to the systems starting faster than the drive, resulting in BSOD on resume.

I've been waiting for something faster than Corsair 240 Gb GT for my first SDD ever. So I'm getting the Ocz Vertex 4 256 Gb.

Ok .... define "faster" every bench out side of read/write tests put the Corsair Force GT ahead of the vertex 4's. Not by much but IMHO save your money.

"Apart from the results in the first diagram, the Vertex 4 series look really good. They can offer a record-breaking speed at any write operations as well as at random reading with a long request queue depth. When reading 4KB data blocks, which is a highly popular operation in practical applications, the Indilinx Everest 2 controller secures them second place, behind the Corsair Force GT, a typical SandForce-based SSD with synchronous memory."

Sequential read 7/9

Sequential write 1/9

Random read 4 k 2/9

Random write 4 k 1/9

random read qd=32 1/9

random write qd=32 1/9

It said in no part that "every bench out side of read/write tests put the Corsair Force GT ahead of the vertex 4's". One read was 7/9 position, one read was 2/9, one read was 1/9 and all three writes were FIRST with about 20 - 40 % difference in speed to even Corsair 240 GT. That's how I define faster.

I hope there won't be that many hassles with those as there were with previous OCZ drives - that made me go Crucial.

Where's the supercapacitor referred in the article, I can't spot it in the pictures? If you're referring to the component L6 (with Coilcraft's logo and "102F", that seems to be a 1 ┬ÁH inductor.

Because it does not have one!

I e-mailed OCZ:

"No, the Vertex 4 series does not have this feature.

I read it better and I know now that it is slower than Force GT in real software but a lot better after TRIM. COrsair Force GT and other models slow down after usage. Vertex 4 doesn't slow down AT ALL. That's why I choose this SSD, or something faster.
