OCZ releases 7mm low-profile line-up of its Vertex 3

Posted 18 May 2012 18:32 CET by Seán Byrne

OCZ is getting ready to launch its Vertex 3 LP series, which is a 7mm low profile version of its Vertex 3. This series is designed to fit in Ultrabooks, Tablets and other ultraslim computers that have a 7mm bay height limitation and will come in a capacity choice of 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB.

Despite the slimmer profile, OCZ claims that this series features the exact specifications of the standard Vertex 3 range, without any compromise or tradeoff. Like the standard Vertex 3, these feature up to 550MB/s read, 520MB/s write, with random 4K write performance up to 85,000 IOPS. Those interested in how well the Vertex 3 range performance can view our in-depth review of the Vertex 3.

This series is backed by a 3 year warranty, but so far no suggested retail pricing has been announced. Full specifications can be viewed at OCZ.

My vertex 2's didn't last 3 months ... I have a hard time believing OCZ's 3yr warranty.

I suspect they're hoping that people lose their "proof of sale" before too long ...

Many of the (online) shops I use have an online record of all your purchases, with status of warranty.

I have 2 Vertex 2 SSDs for 2 years now, running in a raid configuration. They have not failed me yet. The only knock agains't the Vertex 2 is the speed limitation which I fixed running a raid array. It was either get rid of a 980X with a great Asus ROG Rampage 111 Extreme Motherboard or find someway to overcome the lack of a SATA 6.0 port on the motherboard. The Asus Extreme 111 only came with SATA 3.0 ports but you cannot get more than the Vertex 11 can deliver on it. Wendys review of the Vertex 3 was great, it made me want to ditch the the 980X and get a socket 1155 which I did, only I kept the 980X build also. I think OCZ is a leader in the technology that will be the future of SSDs, I learn so much from reading Wendys reviews that I look forward to the next one.
