OCZ Core Series V2 SATA II Solid State Drives


Offering speeds of up to 170 MB/s read and 98 MB/s write with seek time of less than 0.2-0.3ms, these high-performance drives have no moving parts and are therefore totally silent in operation.

Featuring a brand new architecture, the Core V2 SSD is available in three capacities up to a massive 120GB and delivers enhanced speeds of up to 170 MB/s read and 98 MB/s write, with a seek time of under 0.2-0.3ms. The addition of a mini-USB port also makes it possible to update the Core V2's firmware should new versions become available, to further enhance compatibility or performance in the future.

The OCZ Core Series V2 delivers additional performance and reliability of the latest SSDs at a 50% less price per gigabyte than other high speed offerings currently on the market. The Core Series is ideal for an energy-efficient mobile or a RAID configured desktop to provide blazing speeds and advanced access and seek times. Because SSD drives feature no moving parts, the Core Series V2 will keep your laptop or desktop environment cool and silent and provide a durable alternative with superior shock resistance.

All OCZ SSDs supplied by Quiet PC come with a free 2½" to 3½" mounting bracket, so if you plan to install your SSD into a desktop PC case, the bracket will allow the drive to fit into a standard 3½" drive bay. Designed for ultimate reliability, Core V2 SSDs have an excellent 1.5 million hour mean time before failure (MTBF) specification, ensuring peace of mind over the long term. All Core Series SSD drives come backed with a two year warranty and OCZ's legendary service and support.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Solid State Drives DO NOT require defragmentation. Performing defragmentation may decrease the drive's lifespan.

Customers may see a discrepancy between reported capacity and actual capacity; the storage industry standard is to display capacity in decimal. However, the operating system usually calculates capacity in binary, causing traditional HDD and SSD to show a lower capacity in Windows. In the case of SSDs, some of the capacity is reserved for formatting and redundancy for wear levelling. These reserved areas on an SSD may occupy up to 5% of the drive's storage capacity. The Core V2 Series new naming convention openly reflects this and therefore the 30 is equivalent to 32GB, the 60 is equivalent to the 64GB and the 120 equivalent to 128GB.
