Hey everyone. I just got the OCZ Vertex 2 50GB yesterday and it's currently working but there are some problems. There's a performance problem that always shows low read performance when testing with small files at the start compared to other reviews like from the one here, anandtech, and pcper. 64 KB block: 8 MB block: Quick Bench: Long Bench: These are looking alright. The other problem I've found is hdtune showing a warning for reallocated sector count. Can this be the reason for performance anomalies? But then, speedfan shows that it is OK. And I've found no damaged blocks here. So is it a false warning or is it something I should worry about? To clarify, this is a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64bit (2nd time) and TRIM is enabled from what I've seen after typing in the command at the prompt. The partition is completely allocated NTFS and ACHI was enabled before the Windows install. After various tweak I am still seeing the low performance. I shouldn't be getting those min speeds and from some reading, the reallocated sectors are preventing problems for the OS but once ? happens then the SSD will fail. Thanks for any feedback. I have been searching/researching the whole day and sent an email to OCZ tech support yesterday.
