OCZ Vertex 3.20 120GB Solid State Drive Review

Introduction

It seems as if we can’t go a month without reviewing a solid state drive and we are not complaining one bit. OCZ is arguable the leader when it comes to SSD manufacturing. They pretty much cover all segments from the regular to the enthusiast to the enterprise level buyer. I guess you can say they do have it all covered.

Just last month we took a look at one of my favorite OCZ drives of all time. And that would be the Vector. The Vector is fast and I mean very fast and it contains a heavy dose of what OCZ is capable of. The ‘Indilinx Infused’ controller is the heart of the drive and it just goes on from there.

Today, we will be taking a look at OCZ newest drive to market. Actually isn’t quite new, it is a refresh of the original Vertex 3 drive with a couple of upgrades to enhance its performance and reliability. The biggest difference between the two would be the introduction of 20nm NAND from Intel vice the 25nm modules used before.

OCZ’s take on the Vertex 3.20

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.
