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.

Pros:
Very fast drive
3.5 inch mounting bracket
Silent
Well built
3 Year Warranty

Cons:
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!

This came in the stated time from lambda-tek. Well packaged and great condition. I bought this 60gb primarily to use as a software storage, i.e OS and web browser etc. Its so much faster than the HDD to boot my system. I've put most of the sofware I need on it and still have 25gb remaining for future installments. I ensured that I choose the vertex 3 as it was also SATA 3. I love this drive and would recommend it to anyone who wants to speed their boot, shut down and overall system performance. If you are running windows 7 then this should take care of all the settings like, superfetch, prefetch, ready boost and disable derfrag settings for this drive. I'm unsure if TRIM is availible on other operating systems but if this the case there are some good sites to view instructions of doing this. Also it improves performance of this drive when you enable AHCI from both windows 7 and Bios, this will change the controller from IDE to AHCI. Hope this helps!

Also this SSD come with the mounting bracket. I read in some of the other reveiws on other SSD's that the mounting bracket had to be brought seperately, Although I have seen people using double sided on SSD's, as its not mechanical and doesnt move. But I think personally it needs to be secure as of all drives.

I upgraded from Vertex 2 and while not being life changing as the move from hdd to ssd you can definitely feel the improved speed. Highly recommended.

Used the SSD as part of a Z68 set up, quite difficult to get right but when you do its amazingly fast. Only critisme is that the drive doesn't have locking sata and power cables they just stay in by the grace of god (and some cable ties).

I give only four stars, because it's a little bit unstable: the disk freezes occasionally and has given me one BSOD. I have spent a lot of time in the OCZ Forum trying to find answers to my questions, some problems have been solved, some don't. The most annoying problem has been freezing, so I tell you now: disable hibernation right away and enable (in BIOS) hot swap/hot plug to all disk ports you have, thus you avoid many swetty situations trying to figure out what's freezing the disk. Also update your firmware immediately (instructions on the OCZ Forum). I've tried to update mine but I haven't succeeded yet; the instructions won't apply in my computer and I can't figure out why not. But still, Vertex3 is a disk of my dreams: The Atto benchmark result: read 557MB/s, write 527MB/s.
Edit: After many many firmware updates it works just fine, and I can recommend it for anyone who needs a quick SSD. But I hope, that OCZ has learned it's lesson.

This SSD is way better than the various crucial equivalent. It is faster, it performs great and is a truly solid product. OK that price is not always the best, any pennies extra you spend on OCZ is normally worth it.

I got 3 separate OCZ drives which runs different operating systems for testing purposes and I have never had issues with any of these disks.

I like the speed of the drive but every time it was powered up the system rebooted and when I added a second disk (120GB version) the disk would not become visible until I swapped the SATA cables over. I purchased new cables but it still rebooted itself every time.

I have returned it and purchased the Corsair Force 3 version.

Also I found OCZ support to be quite poor.

Update ======================================

I have used the Corsair Force 3 all day and I have had no problems with it.

I have been running the Force 3 drive for 2 weeks and it has been problem free.

Purchased this drive on the back of the mass media hype about un-beatable speeds etc for my new H67 Sandybridge PC build.
Attempting to get the drive recognised for Windows 7 64 bit install was near impossible although BIOS had no problem finding the drive.
Over the last 8 weeks I have spent about 60 or 70 hours following the random advice from OCZ and RMA'd the drive once at the cost of £10 as it has to be sent to Netherlands (insured and recorded)

A search of "OCZ Vertex 3 BSOD" shows there is a massive problem with this and other sandforce based SSD drives (mostly OCZ)used with motherboards from a wide range of manufacturers. There have been 3 firmware updates trying to make the device stable with the last update doing little more than slowing the drive (and benchmark speeds) way below claimed speeds.
I am currently trying to get this device refunded through OCZ as my "new" computer has been un-usable and already virtually out-of date! I would advise looking at a "slower" SSD drive that doesn't use sandforce chips (Intel etc). This device has cost me a huge amount in personal time and PC downtime.
I'd absolutely and strongly advise anyone using one of these drives to back up data very frequently!
A web search on this drive will tell you the whole truth about their failings and un-reliability.
Just a friendly warning to prevent others making the same costly mistake or losing valuable data.
