OCZ Vertex 460 SSD Review (240GB) – Great Performance At An Awesome Price!


Technology X uses a benchmark software called PCMark Vantage x64 HDD Suite to create testing scenarios that might be used in the typical user experience. There are eight tests in all and the tests performed record the speed of data movement in MB/s to which they are then given a numerical score after all of the tests are complete. The simulations are as follows:

  • Windows Defender In Use
  • Streaming Data from storage in games such as Alan Wake which allows for massive worlds and riveting non-stop action
  • Importing digital photos into Windows Photo Gallery
  • Starting the Vista Operating System
  • Home Video editing with Movie Maker which can be very time-consuming
  • Media Center which can handle video recording, time shifting and streaming from Windows media center to an extender such as XBox
  • Cataloging a music library
  • Starting applications


The OCZ Vertex 460 SSD demonstrates it’s superiority once again, as seen below in PCMark Vantage testing. 6 of our 8 tests resulted in speeds that reach SATA 3 capabilities, with two tests that exceed the 400 MB/s transfer speeds. The SSD resulted in a total score of 72285.


Overall, we found the OCZ Vertex 460 240GB SSD to be very impressive. Not only does the Vertex 460 provide excellent read and write performance results, but it comes with a great three year warranty and an even better price tag. This would be an excellent upgrade to any system that is in need of a new solid state drive, or storage device for that matter.

With the recent organizational changes and new partnerships that have occurred for OCZ Storage Solutions, it is great to see that none of the changes impacted the quality or the performance of the solid state drive. Now that these changes have taken place, and that the dust is beginning to settle, it will be interesting to see what OCZ produces next!
