Experience: 1 Years
Fast, quiet, cool
I had an old HDD die on me and I needed to get a new one. I managed to get one of these SSDs and everything has been amazingly faster since. Unfortunately, I am currently only running it on SATA2. Everything still loads amazingly fast. I have nothing but positive things to say about these drives.

Experience: 2 Days
 Verified Owner
-Excellent performance.
-Includes adaptor for install in 3.5 bay.
-None so far.
I installed this drive in an older machine (Intel E8400 3.00Ghz). My MB only has SATA2 and this drive performs exceptionally well. I have to say installing a SSD is probably the one upgrade that will give the most gain in performance.

Very Fast
Good Price
High Capacity
Very fast and reliable drive. Boots into windows very quickly.

Disque dur SSD très rapide ! Excellent produit !
Aucun problèmes.
J'aime beaucoup les produits OZC ! Très performants à prix moindre ! Merci NCIX.COM !

-Great performance for the price
Picked this up for $159.99 after MIR. My PC is blazing fast. Can't comment on the reliability, I've only been running it for a day but works great so far.

Experience: 1 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Reasonable price (purchased on special)
None I can think of
This was a nice upgrade. Easy to install. It comes with a 3.5 inch tray which is a good thing (unlike a lot of other drives out there that just come bare).

Experience: 30 Days
 Verified Owner
Very fast.
Good quantity of GB (enough for booting, games, applications, etc.)
Still pricey compared to Hard Drive Disk.
Not enough for movies, pictures, etc.
Bought it for $169.99, I use it for my gaming PC. The booting for windows 7 is soo fast, it takes approximately 20 seconds to achieve all the applications! Every PCs must have a Solid State Drive, Hard Drive Disk take too much time to boot.

Experience: 10 Days
 Verified Owner
Super Fast, and obviously makes no noise!
Mounting is a pain
Fast as hell, used it to replace my 1st gen Raptor, using it on SATA 1 right now. Different mounting screws then normal hard drive screws make it a pain to mount anywhere, even with the included adapter plate, have it hanging out of my case atm.

Experience: 1 Weeks

good quality/price for 169.99$
working really good with win 7 . good resultat

Experience: 4 Days
 Verified Owner
Amazing results with Win7 on the drive
(be sure to disable prefetch and enable TRIM)
my only side effect so far is not with the drive but rather with my platform having one hdd bay (laptop), alternatively you can install a 2nd hdd into the CD bay on most laptops, its called a OBHD (optical drive hard drive). It costs usually only 20 bucks or so and is easy to install.

I would recommend this hard drive over the 120gb model because SSD's like to have a little bit of space to operate well

My power consumption and heat on my laptop are now much lower and the speeds I am getting on boot ups are sub 20 sec's

all and all a great upgrade for not much money considering these units were $400+ not long ago.

Comment: A roundup of SSDs including the 240GB Vertex 3
Posted by: Brandon_H @01/15/12
Comment: OCZ's Vertex 3 is the fastest consumer solid-state drive in the 240GB capacity range. But it will cost you.
Posted by: Lord Babaghan @06/22/11
Comment: When we previewed the 240GB Vertex 3 it looked like game over for the SandForce competitors this round. With the final hardware tested, I have to agree with our original conclusion. If you're spending $500 on a drive, the 240GB Vertex 3 is your best bet.
Posted by: dshooper @05/06/11
Comment: There are good solid state drives, there are great solid state drives and then there is the OCZ Vertex 3.
Posted by: epic_fail™ @05/04/11
Comment: "Although the Vertex 3 we tested is running pre-production firmware, it's hard not to get excited about the results. This is one of the most balanced SSD performances we've seen in a while, and that's exactly the sort of thing we look for when shopping for a solid-state system drive."
Posted by: 00-Evan @04/05/11
Comment: launch at the end of March. At that time OCZ will not be the only manufacturer using the SandForce SF-2200 chip so expect to see many different drives based on it in the next few months. Overall ThinkComputers gives the OCZ Vertex 3 240GB Solid State Drive a 10/10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award

Comment: "We where pretty much dumbfounded when we tested the Vertex 3 PRO last week, given the specs of the 'regular' consumer edition Vertex 3 we wondered if this product would be noticeably slower and no, that's just not at all the case. In fact it even wins here and there with its RAW brute p
Posted by: lef @02/27/11
Comment: "OCZ is leading the way yet again, setting the bar for SSD performance in 2011. Nearly doubling the peak performance of the Vertex 2 line, the Vertex 3 takes full advantage of the SATA 6Gbps interface with its beefy SandForce SF-2281 controller and 25nm NAND."
Posted by: lef @02/27/11
Comment: "with a new controller, interface and top-tier NAND it's not even a fair fight. The OCZ Vertex 3 spanks the competition with up to 69% faster speeds in real-world conditions and has firmly established itself as the fastest SATA SSD we've seen."
