About this product


Product overview

• 512GB internal solid state drive (SSD) giving you a large storage capacity for your computer
• 2.5-inch SATA III 6 GB/s connection with a read speed of 550MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s for a rapid data transfer and quick start up speed
• 90,000 input/output per second (IOPS)
• Perfect for use in laptops and notebooks to replace your existing hard drive with a faster, quieter version
• VTX3-25SAT3-240G

Why should I buy a solid state drive?
SSD drives are faster, more reliable and a lot more efficient than mechanical hard drives (HDD). Durability and reliability are two things you can expect from an SSD. They are able to withstand knocks and shocks, making them ideal to use in laptops and netbooks. This doesn’t mean you can’t use them in computers - they provide a quick start up speed and a silent operation as well as being easy to install into your case.

What benefits does this SSD have?
This OCZ Vertex 3 comes as a 240GB drive. This capacity is sufficient enough to run any operating system as well as storing your documents on your computer. The read speed of 550MB/s and the write speed of 520MB/s allows you to save data faster and recall it when you are in a hurry.

How efficient is this SSD?
Thanks to its solid state design, the OCZ SSD consumes less power and produces less heat than a traditional HDD. This lightens the load on your PC's power supply and cooling system, lengthening your system's lifespan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maybe Toshiba can do better I bought 3 OCZ drives just over a year ago. The second just failed like the first. Totally, with no warning. Which is why I'm on this web site looking for a replacement. Not a great success rate. Probable explains why OCZ filed for bankruptcy in 2013... Now owned by Toshiba who hopefully will improve matters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best buy I've made to improve my computers overall speed. If it was just a larger capacity it would have been a 5 star rating, but the speed increase you get from this drive is phenomenal.

In the product details it says 512GB but in the specification section it says 250GB. So what is the actual capacity, 250GB or 512GB.
