OCZ Vertex Plus Solid State Drives are the faster, cooler, quieter, and more durable alternative to conventional hard disc drives. In combination with the latest flash memory, the Vertex Plus features the revolutionary new Indilinx Arowana FTL with HyperQueuing, which significantly increases sequential write speeds and random IOPS over the previous generation FTL. With excellent reliability and lower power consuming NAND flash, these SSDs use less energy while giving you real-world results in your everyday computing and battery life. Complete with TRIM support, Vertex Plus is the ultimate notebook or desktop upgrade.
Use it for office, surfing, finance and some gaming. Stays cool and quite. The unit comes in a small box with protective metal like covering. I used it in my Macbook pro 15" late 2009 model without a hitch. I am not sure if this model ever thought it would move this fast. Startup is 10 to 15seconds and shut down between 5 to 10 seconds. FASSST!
