Fast if you know what you are doing.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: OCZ VTX3-25SAT3-120G 120GB Vertex 3 SATA III Internal 2.5 Inch SSD (Personal Computers)
This SSD is an excellent piece of kit.
The OCZ Vertex 3 is compact and will fit into any 2.5 inch laptop and comes with an adapter to allow you to mount it in a 3.5 inch bay on a PC.
You need to update the firmware on the drive before installing your OS by downloading it off OCZ's website. The drive is then quick and easy to install and windows 7 installs with no problems as long as you are using the P67 chipset or later with Native SATA 6Gbps (SATA 3). Once the drive has been installed there are some things you need to make sure that windows has disabled or the drives performance will be reduced. The following should be turned off or disabled; Scheduled Difragmentation (Allowing Defragmentation may decrease the lifespan of the drive), Superfetch, Prefetch, bootfetch and Drive Indexing as an SSD has no need for them.
Once the following where turned off the drive can achieve its full speed and gives excellent performance.
Very fast drive
3.5 inch mounting bracket
3 Year Warranty
Need to update firmware before installing OS
Requires the user to tweak windows to get the drive up to full performance
Very basic instructions
Expensive - But in my opinion well worth it if you want that kind of speed!
