    OCZ RevoDrive 350 review

    7  

    The OCZ RevoDrive 350 offers incredible transfer rates compared with single SATA drives, but carries an eye-watering price.

    OCZ Vertex 4 512GB RAID0 review

    OCZ Vertex 4 512GB RAID0 review

    7  

    The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. The divine benevolence in question is the belated and very much awaited arrival of TRIM support when operating SSDs in RAID arrays.

    The SSD controller wars are hotting up with the arrival of the new OCZ Vertex 4 256GB. It's powered by OCZ's new in-house Everest 2 controller chipset, so how does it perform?

    OCZ Octane 512GB review

    8  

    The arrival of the new OCZ Octane 512GB is the most intriguing development in SSD technology in the last few years. The key theme here is high quality SSD controllers and the firmware that goes with them. They've proven very difficult to develop.

    If you thought the first generation of SandForce controllers was impressive, then the second generation will simply blow you away.

    OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB review

    8  

    We've had a play with OCZ's first take on the PCIe-based SSD, the OCZ RevoDrive 120GB and you could colour us fairly impressed. A little while later and the OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB has found itself slotted into our test bench.

    OCZ IBIS HSDL 240GB SSD review

    8  

    It's fashionable among the technologistas to grumble about the quality and performance of solid-state drive controller chipsets. But controllers aren't the only problem with SSD performance; increasingly, storage interfaces are creating a bottleneck. Enter the OCZ IBIS HSDL 240GB, an ultra-high performance SSD designed to sidestep performance issues related to the SATA I/O interface.

    OCZ bless us with 600 watts of 80Plus certified power and a noise-free voltage power supply.

    OCZ Agility 2 60GB review

    OCZ Agility 2 60GB review

    8  

    Up until now, SSDs have had one sided performance, reading files very quickly but being much slower to write data down onto the drive. Thanks to the new SF-1200 controller, the Agility 2 is has almost symmetrical read/write performance in sequential tasks, and its handling of multiple small writes is ridiculously quick.

    OCZ Vertex 2 120GB review

    10  

    OCZ's Vertex 2 is an outstanding drive on almost all counts whether its performance or value for money that you're after, but unless you're setting up a dedicated multimedia workstation for cutting your first HD feature, you should probably save your money and opt for the 60GB version instead. And trust us, you'll be very, very happy with your choice.

    A small capacity SSD but is 32GB too limited for a single drive?

    Rally 2 32GB Flash drive review

    Rally 2 32GB Flash drive review

    9  

    OCZ’s Rally 2 sticks have impressed ever since their first 1GB iteration, and now that the boffins at OCZ have managed to cram a ludicrous 32GB into such a tiny form-factor, we’re smitten.

    OCZ Vendetta 2 review

    8  

    The Vendetta 2 is, inevitably, very similar to its predecessor, and maybe less inevitably Arctic Cooling’s Freezer 7 Pro. They have kept the three copper pipes in contact with the CPU to ensure rapid heat removal, and kept it ultra silent.
