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 60,000 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.

Been a solid performer for five years

Pros: Reliable. Fast.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Installed a pair of these in 2012. Was going to raid them, but then got lazy. Now I'm finally updating my computer with a new SSD and going to raid these on another build for mom to get her by for a few years.

Great product, has been working flawlessly now for 4 years!

Pros: -Easy to set-up
-Very fast boot time
-Great game loading performance

Cons: -120GB fills up fast when using as your primary drive

Other Thoughts: -when running windows 7 this drive filled up just with the OS and apps that are required to instal to the OS drive, but I'm till using this as OS drive for windows 10 and since it is a lighter OS there is now enough space after doing a fresh install

amazing drive

Pros: fast, reliable, trusted company, great product and form factor.

Cons: low space? Nothing to take an egg off for.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this for two years, I bought it during a sale for like $80 and it was a steal. Best drive I've ever owned, and after 2 years and 90% capacity it is starting to slow down a little. By a little I mean instead of taking 7 seconds to boot it now takes 10. I'd buy another SSD from OCZ in a heartbeat.
