The Conclusion

Of the total core test, the Vertex 3 comes to the fourth place, which is a very good result. However, but it is also known that the 240 GB versions are generally faster than the smaller 120 GB versions. What can be seen in the test is that the Vertex 3 is slightly outdated. It is not as fast as the Vertex 4 120GB. During our test, only the Kingston Hyper X 240 GB 3K is faster than this version. Positive to mention is also the OCZ forum. Here you can ask questions to the SSD and you will get fast answers by users and pros. All in all you can’t do nothing wrong with the Vertex 3 240 GB. So we will give it a buy recommendation.
