Which OCZ Vertex 4 SSD is Right for You?
The SSD Advantage
Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.
Solid State Drives feature a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards, shock resistant up to 1500g. Hard disk drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage.
SSDs have 100 times greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot-ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives. HDDs can only access the data faster the closer it is from the read/ write heads, while all parts of the SSD can be accessed at once.
Less Power Consumption, Silent Operation, and Lightweight
SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard disk drives--less than 2W versus 6W for an HDD--delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment. With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment. And SSDs won't weigh down your laptop, netbook, or tablet PC when you're on the go.

Never been dissappointed :)
Works like a charm. Bought a second one.
Me and my wife were looking to upgrade our old machine. We bought this online at buy.com and it has worked great. The price is very reasonable and the delivery was fast too. I would give this FIVE STARS!!!!! You won't be disappointed with this Hard Drive it is great!
Do you need a SSD as your primary drive? IF you can spare your laptop's optical drive, you can swap it out for a small capacity SSD with a conversion kit, and use this as a boot drive. You could buy a 64GB SSD for this, and combined with the conversion kit, have several hundred dollars left over to take the wife out for a nice dinner, movie, and still pay your rent that month!
