My System Specs

Default Is this a good price?

$125 for a used OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD. I talked to the current owner tonight and he told me that he had it in his rig for one week with W7P installed on it. His reason for selling it is because he bought a larger SSD. I think I might jump on this one.......tell me what you think?

Ask for the HD Tune specs and check the fragmentation/degrading of the drive. Ask him if TRIM support is available and if he's been regularly running garbage collection. $125 is a nice price though.

The new drives all have ITGC even if his OS didn't support TRIM (but it does). I'd pay that for a Vertex 2 60GB. Best new price I could find was 172 after MIR. I think I could sell my Vertex 1 60 GB for that price.
