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.

Still FAST!

Pros: Follow-up review after almost a year :D

* Vertex 3 has Synchronous NAND flash that doesn't have the same compression problems asynchronous NAND has with the SandForce 2281 controller.
So you don't have to worry about NON compressible data!

*iops up to 80,000! is what makes a ssd quick

Cons: only 60GB
Stopped working 1 time and apparently needed to be disconnected from the motherboard for a while afterwards all was well!

Other Thoughts: Got the rebate promptly!

My 680i motherboard doesn't have AHCI still MUCH! faster than my Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K1000.C 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s and that never seemed slow.

No more waiting at boot!

*(edit 12.19.16 Still ROCKS! became boot drive for a10-5700k, eventually replaced by Hynix SC-308 256GB and now back as boot drive for the q6600!

nice SSD

Pros: Good SSD that has been running for 2 years now with no noticeable degradation in performance.

Cons: 60GB is too small. You will get windows and a few essential programs, but that is it. Very frustrating when terrible software *cough itunes* wants to fill up 5GB with cache files that can't be moved.

Obviously not worth the current 200 asking price

Same old junky plastic clips

Pros: Looks nice.

Cons: The low quality plastic pins to clamp it in place broke upon first attempt at installation with very little force.

Other Thoughts: Since the clip broke right away I have no clue how well this works.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Anonymous,

I am unsure I understand the issue you have had. The Vertex 3 has no moving plastic pins that "clamp", unless you are referring to the SATA or power connector on the drive. If you are referring to the SATA connector please contact our Support Forum and we will investigate what has occurred and assist however possible.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,

Very unreliable and died a quick death taking my data with it.

Pros: Nice fast drive

Cons: Drive failed after one month. It developed bad sectors and drops out of the BIOS at random. I can't boot it and it won't stay up long enough to recover the data.

Other Thoughts: I have been on hold with OCZ for 20 minutes and nobody is picking up. Figured I would take the time to add a review. Stay away from this thing. My RMA request has been submitted.

FAST!!!... But not big enough OS drive

Pros: This SSD is super fast, boot time 5-8 seconds! Comes with mount for Desktop use

Cons: After installing OS, only 20gb left... Filled that up after a week.

Other Thoughts: Buy this as a secondary drive, or something other than the OS drive. I'd recommend getting 250gb+ SSD for OS drive.
