    Phoronix: OCZ Solid 2 SSD

    We have reviewed a number of OCZ solid-state drives at Phoronix including their Vertex, Agility, and Agility EX series. In this review we are taking our first look at OCZ's new Solid 2 SSD series. The Solid 2 series is part of OCZ's value-based SSD line-up, but they do offer a surprisingly good level of performance.

    Why is there no information on the firmware versions that were used on each drive for testing? Also, why are there no synthetic benchmarks testing random IO? Random IO is the biggest issue in terms of SSD performance and it seems like any major flaws in the drives would go undetected by your benchmarks because of it.

    that's exactly what I wanted to ask for! I'm planning to purchase the Vertex 2 with 100GB and would to love to see a comparison with the previous benched drives.

    I have to say that Shining Arcaine has a good point. Not testing random IO seems unreasonable to me too. Especially the new Agility/Vertex 2 (Sandforce powered) drives with their high IOPs (20k/50k @ 4k Blocks) claimed by OCZ should be tested.

    Anyhow, good work and thanks for the helping comparisons!
