OCZ Vertex 3 Solid State Drives unleash the performance potential of the SATA 6Gbps interface, leading the speed revolution in this next-generation solution. As the first SSD to feature the latest Sandforce controller design, OCZ designed the Vertex 3 to push the limits in both sequential and random read/write rates to blaze past the competition when every MB/s matters. With incredible 4k file writes up to 85,000 IOPS, these latest drives take productivity, gaming, and multimedia applications to the next level to work in perfect symmetry with the latest enthusiast platforms.

Built with the quality, reliability, and durability that lives up to the OCZ name, the Vertex 3 Series easily integrates into today’s mobile and desktop platforms and features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan as the ultimate Windows 7 companion.

  • newegg Industry-Leading Performance & Endurance Driven by the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2281), the Vertex 3 Series is designed and built to unleash the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA III interface. The Vertex 3 pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates, significantly improving your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience. In addition, the SSD controller’s integrated enhanced DuraClass Technology is architected to leverage today’s densest MLC NAND Flash memory, delivering best-in-class performance, endurance, security, and power efficiency in a “DRAM-less”, single chip solution.
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to maximum performance, a Vertex3 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. Vertex 3 SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.
  • newegg TRIM Support The Vertex 3 Series SSDs offer 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 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The Vertex 3 Series features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket is included with the SSD for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Furious

Pros: SSD - slim sexy drive

Cons: none that are a fault of the drive (price/capacity)

Other Thoughts: almost 2 years and haven't had a single hiccup. thought I'd throw a review on here since a lot of reviews I see are after a few months of ownership.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk - 4 times in a row...

Pros: None.

Cons: This drive failed three times all within weeks after receiving each replacement unit.

Other Thoughts: OCZ is a horrible company because they lack any idea of quality customer care. Their "ticket" support process is design to discourage customer from getting RMA #s and once you get an RMA# the ticket expires leaving you with no means of follow-up communications. Unless of course you open another ticket and re explain your problem.

The forth drive they shipped me was a Vertex 4 SSD as opposed to a Vertex 3; however, the Vertex 4 was a refurbished drive. See how much OCZ dislikes customers! You purchased a new drive and in the end OCZ sends you someone else junk.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent speeds

Cons: First one went defective after installing the OS. Looking further into this it turns out OCZ has been caught selling drives with Samsing factory rejected chips. I will NEVER purchase a SSD from OCZ again.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper fast!

Pros: This SSD is amazingly fast! I use it for my OS and it installed faster than I could have believed! My computer boots up in seconds. I believe I can hit the power button, log on, and open up Chrome and be browsing the internet in less than 30 seconds. Wow!

Cons: The size is a little small. However, I knew this when I bought it. So, no eggs lost for this.

Other Thoughts: I wish I had been a little less stingy when choosing the SSD because I would enjoy some more space. A little more breathing room, if you will. But, other than that it's fantastic. It has my OS and all my important programs on there with 20 GB to spare. So, overall I'm very satisfied!

5 out of 5 eggsSpeeeeeed

Pros: Fantastic speed, great reliability, fantastic speed, ample room for your OS and most-needed applications, fast speed, and did I mention its speed? Great value for the price.

Win7 64 bit Pro boots in well under 30 seconds.

If this is your first SSD, it may take some extra time to configure your case for it, as the form factor of SSDs are significantly smaller than HDDs.

Cons: none
