The OCZ Vertex LE
If you have seen one you have seen them all right? Well not exactly but after looking at several OCZ SandForce based SSDs we have started to get ESP when a new one comes in. As mentioned previously, the Limited Edition logo gets us thinking about platinum for some odd reason. The light has to be just right for the effect to really come through and capturing it in my photo booth proved to be impossible.
All of the drive details are located on the back of the drive. I was kind of hoping to find a build date but that is one piece of information that was not present.
OCZ did their homework and has all of the standard mounting points where they should be.
SATA data and power are also located where the specifications state so you will not have an issue installing the Vertex LE in a notebook or desktop with the use of an adapter.
Here we see the SandForce that isn't exactly a SandForce but could be, maybe err something to do with OCZ. No matter who has their name etched on the controller SandForce claims it as their own publicly so it's all good. Our sample arrived with Intel flash; I know at least a small amount of the first LE drives shipped with Micron flash. Most of the reviews that were published used Intel flash but I did run across one article at Hot Hardware that used Micron flash.
There are eight flash chips on each side making sixteen in total. At this time none of the SandForce controllers we have come across have been paired with a DRAM buffer and the controllers were designed to work without one which aids in reducing costs.
Our 240GB Vertex LE sample arrived with the "Super Capacitor" PCB that we have seen on all of the SandForce controlled SSDs from OCZ so far.
