roughly the same price per GB as earlier X25-M drives, while providing superior performance

1 agrees

limited edition isn't just a silly add-on name - truly somewhat exclusive with only 5000 drives being made

1 agrees

not that exclusive to date - many still in stock at a variety of retailers

The OCZ Vertex Limited Edition is a solid state drive for power users. The Limited Edition's advantage over the Vertex 2 is in the 4k random write, which specializes in fast access to data scattered around the hard drive. This makes it a good drive for Windows users. It has a maximum read speed of up to 270MB/s, and can write at up to 250MB/s. It has native TRIM and RAID support. The drive fits into a standard 2.5in bay and weights 77g. It draws 2 watts in operation and 0.5 watts while in standby. The unit is shock resistant to forces of up to 1500G.

Model Variations

The OCZ Vertex Limited Edition comes in 50GB, 100GB and 200GB capacities. Expect the smaller capacities to be significantly cheaper.
