Default Is the OCZ Vertex 2 really that good?

New Egg has the Vertex 2 on sale for a very limited time [shell shocker] @ $85 AMIR.

Just wanted to know if it is really as good as people are saying [twice the speed of the Intel 40gb]?

Can someone please comment quickly [the sale can end any time].

Thanks,

OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX40G 2.5" 40GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I don't know about the Vertex 2 personally, but the Agility 2 is pretty fast so the Vertex should be a little faster.

The Vertex 2 is pretty much the drive to get at this point. I would be ordering one now if the battery on my laptop wasn't in desperate need of replacement.

Edit: I really need more willpower, just ordered one anyways.
