Any way you look at it, solid state drives are faster than HDDs, so why not get the most bang-for-your-buck? OCZ Solid 3 SSDs are designed to provide a superior combination of value and performance, implementing the cutting-edge SATA 6Gbps interface to deliver speed that significantly improves your overall computing experience.

In addition to enhanced performance, a Solid 3 upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives leading to a longer battery life. With no moving parts, SSDs also provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability.

  • newegg Engineered for Cost-effective Performance The OCZ Solid 3 SATA III Solid State Drives are designed and built for cost-effective performance. By leveraging the latest SATA 6Gbps interface and the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2281), the Solid 3 pushes the limits in sequential data transfer rates with up to 500MB/s read plus great 4KB random write performance of 20,000 IOPS, significantly improving your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience. It is backwards compatible with SATA II / 3Gbps, and is also compliant with ATA/ATAPI-8 Standard Native Command Queuing (NCQ). (Max performance achieved using Native SATA 6Gbps chipset. Rated speeds may vary slightly depending on the benchmark used, drivers, windows version, bios version and file size.)
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to enhanced performance, a Solid 3 upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Solid 3 offers native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
  • newegg S.M.A.R.T. technology The OCZ Solid 3 adopts Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) which enables the PC to predict the future failure of hard disk drives. Through the SMART system, hard disk drives incorporate a suite of advanced diagnostics that monitor the internal operations of a drive and provide an early warning for many types of potential problems. When a potential problem is detected, the hard drive can be repaired or replaced before any data is lost or damaged.

4 out of 5 eggsReliable

Pros: Fast, small, and reliable

Cons: at the time i bought it, it was expensive, small storage space especially after installing windows 7. it takes up almost half the space. wouldnt advise installing too many games on it. overtime after wear and tear i feel it gets slower and i format every once in a while when i start to feel the lag time

Other Thoughts: update software before use

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing buy

Pros: Very very fast. Boot up times in about 20 seconds on my rig now.
Enough space to hold Windows and all my most commonly used programs

Cons: I had problems installing the SSD into my loading bays for the hard drives into my computer because of the weird position of of the screw holes on the SSD but I was still able to effectively mount it

5 out of 5 eggsmeets expectations

Pros: working fine, meets expectations of SSD.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Less than $80 after the rebate I received. I am not trying to get the ultimate performance, have not benchmarked etc, just installed it and use it. Has improved my Dragon speech recognition performance and load times. No problems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive!

Pros: Excellent price, $85 Aug 2012. Drive has not failed or had any issues. Wicked fast compared to HDDs, obviously.

Cons: Nothing. Prices of SSDs are coming down..

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate To Previous Review

Pros: None that I can see now. It has the latese firmware, I have it configured the right way. I have two other machines with other brands of SSDs and they run flawlessly.

Cons: Used to get a blue screen once in awhile, now it's 4 to 5 times or more per week.

Other Thoughts: I'm not saying that all OCZ SSDs are not great but this one is turning out to be pure garbage.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price if you can catch it on sale

Pros: FAST! This thing is awesome compared to the 5400 RPM drive is replaced. Boot time of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 is just under 14 seconds (10 seconds if you don't include the BIOS splash screen). It's big enough, that my wife will not use more than half of it (my intentions, as it is recommended to use 60% of the capacity or less for longer life with SDD). I mention my wife because this is the 4th (yeah, I said 4th) hard drive that has been installed into her machine. She's really bad about having "accidents". She dropped the machine the other night with this little gem inside, and not a hiccup was produced. Whew...

Cons: None. Wife needs to quit dropping her laptop.

Other Thoughts: Great drive if you can grab it while it's on sale. I paid $79.99, but also had a Mail in Rebate, bringing the total damage to $59.99. Great price!

If you have a wife that enjoys testing the ruggedness of laptops, then BUY THIS!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome and Fast

Pros: -Fast
-Cheap
that's pretty much all you need in an SSD isn't it?

Cons: -no mount, wasn't a problem for me because my case had one built in, but it should be something people are aware of.

Other Thoughts: This drive is great, I boot up to my desktop and have Steam and Skype running in about 15 seconds, and for the price, it's got to be one of my favorite products I've purchased on Newegg so far.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW again!

Pros: Just like the ad says. Quick install with Acronis, boots right up, and blazing fast. I am sold on ssd technology.

Cons: None at all. This is the third ssd I have bought, now that the prices are dropping. Wouldn't go back.

Other Thoughts: If you want to really update your computer, go with ssd.

2 out of 5 eggsPass on this SSD

Pros: Blindingly Fast.
Worked Well.

Cons: Short lifespan. Died at 14 months.

Other Thoughts: At the pricepoint when I purchased this SSD, it was manna from heaven. Blindingly fast boots and shutdowns. Insanely fast updates. Just a beautiful experience. Then, 14 months into ownership, it simply stopped. Not recognized at all. Changed SATA ports, changed cables, changed power ..nada. RMA has been requested, and perhaps I simply got a lemon, but I'll be waiting to see how the RMA process goes. Not impressed though. This should have lasted *much* longer than 14 months.
