Some customer reviews of OCZ Technology Vertex 3 120GB ssd

Most helpful reviews

Eddie, Monmouth IT Professional

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Quick, silent and easy to fit.
Bad points:
Took an age to configure as OCZ do not provide software for cloning the old hard drive to the new Solid State Drive. After trying every partitioning and cloning tool out there (GParted, Partition Wizard, Acronis, Clonezilla etc), I had to give up and carry out a clean install of Windows 8. Unfortunately Microsoft do not provide an activation key for OEM installed software any longer, so had to use an audit tool (Belarc) just to get my key, then search the web for the correct version of windows 8 as Microsoft don't offer a download.

So come on OCZ start providing tools designed for your drives (as other manufacturers do) to shrink the partitions and clone the original drive. If I hadn't been an IT engineer with the confidence to experiment with the drives, I doubt I would have succeded in the install.

Jamie, Brighton IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Ballistically fast with a fair capacity, too early to tell on reliability and if your wondering 120gb is more than enough for your OS and programmes
