OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB SSD Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅08-11-11

Since its introduction to the market the SATA 3 SSD has gathered plenty of momentum and thanks to lowering SATA 2 SSD prices the enthusiast has a much better opportunity to own such a device.

The Vertex 3 Max IOPS is a great example of what can be achieved by having a SATA 3 SSD. During the benchmark tests this drive showed solid performance, the only real cause for concern was the CrystalDiskMark write performance but this test has previously shown anomalies with some drives. Overall though the Vertex 3 Max IOPS is a great performer.

Priced at just short of 400inc. VAT the Vertex 3 Max IOPS is a pricey drive indeed. There are cheaper alternatives out there with similar capacity and interface for approximately 280 so I think price is going to perhaps put some customers off purchasing.

+ Good overall performance
+ 3 year warranty

- Cost
- Similar real-world performance to cheaper alternatives
