As the third generation of the legendary VertexSeries,OCZ Vertex3 Solid-state Drives are designed and built to unleash the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA3 interface. The OCZVertex3 pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates, significantly improving your gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience over traditional mechanical hard drives. In addition to maximized productivity, a Vertex3 upgrade makes a hard drive- equipped notebook more portable than ever with superior durability and reduced power consumption. Using the latest breakthrough controller and flash technology, Vertex3 SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the industry's best storage solution.
Unleashing the performance potential of the SATA 6 Gbps interface, OCX leads the speed revolution with the next-generation Vertex 3 Series solid state drive. As the first SSD to feature the latest Sandforce controller design, OCZ created the Vertex 3 to push the limits in both sequential and random read/write rates to blaze past the competition when every MB/s matters.
With incredible random 4k file writes up to 60,000 IOPS, this SSD takes productivity, gaming, and multimedia applications to the next level to work in perfect symmetry with the latest enthusiast platforms. This model of the 2.5-inch Vertex 3 (VTX3-25SAT3-120G) offers 120 GB of storage capacity and a 500 MB/s maximum write speed.
Built with the quality, reliability, and durability that lives up to the OCZ name, the Vertex 3 Series easily integrates into today's mobile and desktop platforms, and it features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive's lifespan as the ultimate Windows 7 companion. It's backed by a 3-year limited warranty.
In addition to maximum performance, a Vertex 3 upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Read more about SSDs below.

Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.
Solid State Drives feature a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards, shock resistant up to 1500g. Hard disk drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage.
SSDs have 100 times greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot-ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives. HDDs can only access the data faster the closer it is from the read/ write heads, while all parts of the SSD can be accessed at once.
SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard disk drives--less than 2W versus 6W for an HDD--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. And SSDs won't weigh down your laptop, netbook, or tablet PC when you're on the go.
SSDs run much cooler than hard disk drives...
...and much quieter, too.
