It’s been a while, but the Vertex 4 shares a similar look as far as packaging as the last Vertex we took a look at. Being OCZ’s flagship drive, it has a sharp all black design that matches the same black they use on the drive. The box is small, obviously, so beyond the picture of the drive you only have a few other important details on the front.  Around back there really aren’t a lot of details on the drive but OCZ has put a short paragraph about the Vertex 4 drives. There aren’t specifications because OCZ will use this same packaging for all of the different capacity Vertex 4’s.

Inside the drive itself is wrapped up in a static protective bag and locked into place in a foam tray. OCZ also included a 2.5 to 3.5 inch adapter that is tucked away on the bottom of the packaging as well as all the screws needed to put it to use. You also get an installation drive and one of their “My SSD is faster than your HDD” stickers.

Do the makers of the SSD's have the technology to make 1 TB SSD's and just don't to keep the prices high and their profits up? I don't have anything against profits, i'm just wondering when these are going to be big enough and cheap enough to do away with the non-ssd or disk drives (not sure of the exact name)...

A little off topic, but i love my SSD and wanna know when i can buy more mega cheap!?!?!?!?

they make them

The costs are coming down on SSD's. But we only recently saw the prices drop below a dollar a gig. Multiplying that by 1000 gets really expensive, adding on top of that there is such a small demand for them due to the price that the costs are much more than $1 per GB right now.

To give you an idea on how much the prices have changed already. This drive is three times as fast as the first SSD we tested, has twice the capacity, and costs $120 less.
