Pros: Seems fast enough, largeish storage capacity.
Cons: The drive only had the SATA1 style clipless connectors... its 2013 it thought we moved past this the greater part of a decade ago. Not impressed, had I know this I would have went with a different drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: This drive is in a work computer that is never turned off so that it can run backups and updates after hours. At first with FW v2.06 the system would BSOD sometime every night and after updating to FW v2.11 now it only BSOD every 3 or 4 days... still not acceptable. Do some searching, there are issues with every Sanforce2 based SSD on the market OCZ an otherwise, if its a system that you use then shut off you can probably use this drive without issue but if you let your system idle for long periods of time, then I would stay away.
Other Thoughts: Feeling kinda burned about this drive, the Agility 2 I have in my home system is awesome, it has given me zero problems, but this Vertex 3 in my work computer has been a real pain in the neck. I just need the drive to work, if I had known that the newer sandforce2 drives had so many issues then I would have got something else for my boot disk.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD Phenom II X3 720 Triple-Core 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Black Processor HDZ720WFGIBOX
Pros: Seems to handle Vistax64 very well. Much faster than the S939 X2 4600+ it replaced. Left 4 Dead used to freeze and studder really bad and now it runs without a hitch.
Cons: The stock cooler is small, cheap, and barely adequate... I was hoping for better. Keeps the CPU at 40ish degrees C while idle.
Other Thoughts: I haven't tried overclocking it yet, I'll wait until I can get a better HSF.READ FULL REVIEW
