2.5" Solid State Drives / 20nm MLC / SATA III / 120GB-240GB
OCZ Vertex 3 Solid State Drives are designed and built to significantly improve your gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience over traditional mechanical hard drives. In addition to maximized productivity, a Vertex 3 upgrade makes a hard drive-equipped notebook more portable than ever with superior durability and reduced power consumption. Using proven controller and next generation MLC flash memory technology, Vertex 3.20 SSDs deliver the performance and responsiveness your hard drive-ridden Mac or PC has been begging for.
• Based on the award-winning Vertex 3 Series, built with leading-edge NAND flash to deliver a superior user experience and improved application performance compared to hard drives.
• Includes SandForce’s robust DuraClass™ features that work in tandem to deliver world-class SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency
• DuraWrite™ architecture optimizes the number of program cycles to the flash, effectively extending flash rated endurance by 20x or more when compared to standard SSDs
• Advanced wear leveling and monitoring - optimized algorithms further extend flash endurance
•Advanced read/program disturb management - safeguards against errant re-programming of cells during read and program cycles
• Recycler - intelligently performs garbage collection with the least impact on flash endurance
Faster Performance for Cost-Effectiveness
SSDs have 100x greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot ups, faster file transfers and overall snappier performance than hard drives.
Because many HDDs are needed to acheive the same performnace, SSDs offer greater cost effectiveness for IOPS per dollar.
The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards are shock resistant up to 1500g, unlike HDDs with various moving parts.
Less Power, Silent Operation
SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard drives, delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system and a cooler computing environment.
With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment.

OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SATA III 20nm MLC 2.5" Int SSD
I had a 2.5 inch 120Gb SSD SATA III vertex 3 series failure. (VTX3-25SAT3-120G.)So a slightly different model to this one, but the same series nonetheless. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Cormac T. Garvey
Mine failed 2.5 years in!
Really unstable drive - it is incredible fast but in terms of reliability this is JUNK. Read more
very fast but died suddenly, at only 18 months old. OCZ went into administration but Toshiba who bought them out are still honouring warranty on high end SSDs like this one, it was... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Joseph
This drive really gave my machine the speed I was looking for. After the warrenty period ran out I had an issue with the drive, I was totally lost as to what I could do as I didnt... Read morePublished 13 months ago by V
going from a traditional spinning hard drive to this is like going from a bicycle to a rocket. It is quick and silent PLUS uses less power so I get about 1/2 more battery life... Read morePublished 20 months ago by Jon Cox
i purchased this 2 years a go, was really fast but after windows 7 took up 35gb there wasn't much room after but did the trick until the prices came down. Read morePublished on 27 Sept. 2013 by jason
Unlike a conventional drive you have little chance of recovering anything if a SSD drive fails for any reason. Read morePublished on 24 Sept. 2013 by Mr. S. Sutcliffe
been using this for well over a year now, and never had an issue at all.
it works like a dream and is 1000% better then a spinny drive!! Read more
Fast, reliable, easy to set up. Some years ago I bought a Western Digital Velociraptor (one of the fastest mechanical disks around) because I got impatient waiting for games to... Read morePublished on 8 May 2013 by Thrudge
