Toshiba OCZ VX500 512GB Solid State Drive Review

Making OCZ SSDs Great Again!

Today I will be reviewing the OCZ VX500 512gb Solid State Drive brought to you by Toshiba. Solid State Drives are among the best upgrades and guarantee an instant performance boost for any computer. As the SSD market becomes more competitive and prices come down, more consumers will make the jump to a solid state solution and they absolutely should! The lifespan and stability of SSDs are improving each generation, as well as the price/performance/size ratio, so there is really no reason to stay away from such awesome technology these days.

Designed for mainstream desktops and notebooks, the Toshiba OCZ VX500 SATA SSDs provide a faster, more responsive computing, gaming, and application experience compared to traditional hard disk drives (HDDs). Prioritizing storage endurance1, the Toshiba MLC NAND flash-based VX500 series is suitable for users with write-intensive PC environments seeking well-balanced speed and features that will take system performance to the next level.

I would like to send a big thank you to Toshiba for the review sample! Here is a snippet of what they have to say about themselves on their website:
