OCZ Vertex 3.20 20nm 240GB SSD

Legit Reviews has published a review of the OCZ Vertex 3.20 20nm 240GB SSD today for those of you interested. For comparison purposes, you can see our evaluation here.

OCZ is certainly getting a lot of mileage from the Vertex moniker. First introduced way back in early 2009, it seems a lot longer than just four years ago. They have good reason to perpetuate the name as the Vertex drives have been one of if not the best selling line of SSDs ever. Back in 2011, we first had a look at the Vertex 3 drives featuring the then new SandForce SF-2281 controller. At the time, it featured 25nm -34nm (keep reading!) MLC NAND and set the bar for enthusiast level SSD performance. Fast forward to 2013 and OCZ has quietly released the latest Vertex 3 incarnation with a .20 mantissa tacked on to represent the 20nm MLC NAND contained within.
