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.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing 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.

5 out of 5 eggs3 years later and I'm still happy!

Pros: Fast & reliable, for what I paid on a Shell Shocker deal 3 years ago. I'm more than pleased with this SSD. It was my first one and what got me hooked.

paid like 60 or 70 bucks 3 years ago and have never had a problem.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: if SSD's weren't so expensive these days I probably would've purchased another drive from OCZ, but instead I opted to go the SSHD route (more bang for your buck).

5 out of 5 eggs3 years later, glad I made the jump to SSD

Pros: -Lightning Fast
- Long Life
- Never going back to regular HDD

Cons: A minor con, low space, but I'm not complaining

Other Thoughts: I bought this 3 years ago after my friend convinced me this was the wave of the future(corny I know). My first experience on it was putting a fresh install of WIndows 7 on it, and watching my computer boot up in 7 seconds flat. I was blown away. Gone are the days of staring @ the HDD light waiting for the computer to finish loading something trivial. Things move the way they should, in real-time. I sold every HDD I owned that day save one for storage, and haven't looked back since.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst SSD

Pros: Two years later and this little guy is still running. It's fast, cheap and still working. What more do you need?

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: Speedy and reliable

Cons: Too thick to fit in my netbook (but it's not intended for a netbook anyway).

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive in my desktop setup for about 2 years now, got it for a great price back in 2012, looks like the price hasn't stayed so low. Has all the speed you would expect from an SSD, and I have had absolutely no issues. Was running Win 7 Pro, upgraded to 8.1 Pro without a hitch, boot time is even quicker with 8. With a separate HDD for data, the 120GB size is ideal for the OS and apps.

3 out of 5 eggsNot too Bad

Pros: Fast

Cons: Not Reliable

Other Thoughts: Failed few times as part of raid 0. After one year failed completely. Other drive is still working. Bios can't see it anymore. Customer service wouldn't accept warranty exchange w/o original receipt even though I forwarded them their dated email-answer on rebate application. Congratulations to customer service. Great job!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst SSD Experience

Pros: Fast, easy to install

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Installation was a snap with the enclosed drive bay converter. Using this as my system (boot) drive, and I go from power off to desktop login in about 20 seconds running Windows 7 Professional. No moving parts has another bonus: it puts off less heat than a normal hard drive, so my pc stays cooler!
