Unboxing the OCZ Vertex 4 Solid State Drive

OCZ’s latest solid state drive is the Vertex 4 and unlike many of the solid state drive we have seen this year it is not powered by the SandForce SF-2281 controller. Instead it is using the Indilinx Everest 2 platform. The Vertex 4 is the first consumer drive to use the Everest 2 platform and boasts speeds of 560MB/s read and 510MB/s write! It is definitely set to compete with SandForce drives! Read on to check out our unboxing video where we give you an overview of the drive and open it up so you can get a closer look at the Everest 2 platform!
