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 eggsStill running great

Pros: Runs fast, runs cool, and still going strong.

Cons: None! Wish I could buy another for $79 like I did in 2012.

Other Thoughts: Bought this drive in June of 2012 for $79.99 from NewEgg and installed it in my aging Macbook Pro. The drive brought new life to my MBP and I have used it everyday since without issue.

2 out of 5 eggsWas really fast while it was working

Pros: When I first got this vertex 3 HDD, I was pretty impressed. It was decently fast, and served my purposed.

Cons: Warning, the drive quit on me just yesterday and I am not out of the warranty period. These drives are supposed to last forever, but I was having issue playing games, and then in a matter of hours, it escalated to not being able to boot up.

Other Thoughts: A 120 GB drive is not big enough for a gaming computer. If you are going to play triple A games like battlefield or COD or Arma, I would recommend a 240 GB drive at minimum. After loading windows, and 3 big games like these, I was already maxing out the capacity of this drive.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer BEWARE

Pros: The price seemed good...but not when compared to the dependability. The drive was moderately fast, but you would expect that from an SSD.

Cons: The drive failed within a year. No warning, no issues, no indication anything was wrong...and all our data was gone.
It failed in the middle of an acronis backup which overwrote previous backups and left the one it was in the middle of unusable. They will replace it..with a REFURBISHED drive.

Other Thoughts: NOTE!!!! The warranty on this drive will be honored with an old firmware version refurbished drive. The one we received could not be formatted and would not install windows. Tech support wants YOU to upgrade the firmware and jump through hoops, oh and by the way YOU have to pay for shipping too.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast
Reliable
Easy to install

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: Great SSD to start off with as one of your first ones. This was my first SSD and it had amazing speeds. My computer booted almost instantly compared to a regular HD. I would recommend this SSD to those starting off with a low end PC.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

Pros: I've had this running 24 hours since 9-2012. Running windows 7.

Have not shut the computer off except for minor cleaning and moving it. Runs continuously without a hiccup.

I will buy another one of these for sure when the time comes. I Run my O/S exclusively on SSD's and then buy a secondary HDD For everything else.

Cons: They are expensive still!

1 out of 5 eggsBad sectors after first year

Pros: Disk is ordinary and same as other, fast, small, light.

Cons: Used this SSD for OS and ran into OS performance issue. Checked the disk and it has 8 bad sectors. Not worth my investment. NEED LONGER LIFE than 1-2 yrs.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Truong515,

Depending on what utility you used to determine the drive status you may be receiving incorrect information. You need to download and run the OCZ Toolbox to verify any potential issues using the SMART details provided. A small number of reallocation events/retired blocks is not unusual and will not affect the performance of the drive. Our Forum Staff are happy to investigate any issue you are experiencing as well as provide analysis of drive condition using proper tools. Please contact us and we will gladly assist however possible.

I have attached a link to the OCZ Toolbox for your convenience.

Thank you for reaching out to us through the Newegg review system.

Kind Regards,

OCZ Support
