OCZ Vertex Series 60GB 2.5" SSD review

While the traditional physical hard drive market is still king of the hill when it comes to offer vast quantities of storage at a low cost, there can be little doubt that Solid State drives are slowly but surely making themselves into a more attractive proposition.  While pricing is still an issue if you need any decent amount of storage, the prospect of silent running, no moving parts, an excellent lifespan and superb performance (helped further by the introduction of Windows 7 and its TRIM functionality on supported drives) all combine to make for a tempting alternative if you don't need to store Terabytes of data on a given system.

Amongst those leading the SSD charge are OCZ, who have been rapidly releasing new drives to cover an entire range of performance levels and price points while also working hard to ensure that their drives feature some of the better SSD firmwares you'll find on the market.  Today, we'll be taking a look at the 60GB drive from OCZ's Vertex range, which hits a sub-£200 price point while still offering a reasonable amount of storage capacity for an average user with the promise of great performance.  Is it worthy of your consideration if you're in the market for such a drive?  Let's take a look.
