    OCZ Vertex 3.20 SSD Review

  • Looking at the NAND move specifically, as that's the focus in this release, we've long seen the NAND fabs driving to smaller NAND die. Most SSDs, such as the Vertex 3 that we reviewed in 2011, have relied on 25 nanometer (nm) process geometry, but OCZ is taking strides to create production efficiencies and cut costs by moving to 20nm NAND die. As the 20nm die gets proven out, production at the fabs ramps up, eventually hitting a tipping point for storage vendors like OCZ, making the switch economically viable, even if 25nm NAND is still in production. In the NAND fab, they're processing the same 300mm wafer, netting more usable NAND thanks to the drop from 25nm to 20nm lithography. Intel and Micron 20nm MLC NAND has been in-use with USB drives, SD cards and the like for some time, essentially proving itself there before being put into use in more critical applications like consumer SSDs and eventually up the line to... Of course, previously OCZ had product families targeted to this and the low-end market with the Agility and Solid families, but both have been discontinued in an effort to consolidate the product line into something more sustainable.

Stay AWAY from Windows 8 and get back to 7! Windows 8 will lock your hard drive! after that you can remove or replace Windows 8 with another operating system! If your stuck, take all your stuff off and look up how to get computer restored to factory defaults (just hope the FD restore partition is still on the hard drive, if not I hope you have a disk.) Hopefully, you get your Windows 7 back, but at the price of losing everything, so again, take your stuff of before you restore.

    Turned an old XP computer into a new one!

    With Microsoft ending its support of XP on April 8th, I knew I had to do something about one of our older Dell computers that's been running XP for the last -- wow maybe 8 years? A little voice told me I should just spend $400 on a new computer instead of $100 on a new OS but the old computer works fine and was pretty fast on XP, and the Windows Upgrade Advisor (free download, google it) told me that the unit would have no problems with Windows 7.So I copied all of my picture and document files off of the computer onto an external hard drive and booted this DVD. It only took about 10 minutes to install Windows 7 and yes, the hardest part is reading the micro type on the password key to unlock the copy of Windows. I took a picture with my iPhone and then zoomed in to read the numbers but even with that one number was VERY hard to read. After activation I spent the next hour or so configuring the computer, and I used Windows Easy Transfer (another free program from... 5/5 Goldengate "Goldengate" (San Francisco, where else?) - See all my reviews, March 9, 2014

    Windows 7 beats Windows 8 In My eyes

    I purchased a brand new computer that came with Windows 8. I'm thinking cool, I can tinker around with a new OS. I couldn't get passed the login screen. No joke. As soon as the computer boots up its asking for a password. Come to find out it wants my Microsoft email.pw from like 20 years ago which I have no access to anymore. I literally couldn't get to the desktop. I have Windows 8 on my phone with no problems so I don't know what the problem was.Needless to say I purchased this Windows 7 Home Premium. Now I compared the differences between the versions but apparently not well enough. Turns out this version limits you to using 16GB RAM. My new computer had 8GB x 4 for 32 GBs of RAM. Under computer properties its says 32GB memory(16GB usable).I then proceeded to downloaded a cracked version of Windows Ultimate x64 which uses all 32GBs.

    Better than Windows 8, still not better than Windows 7.

    Last year, I made the mistake of upgrading my Windows 7 Desktop System to Windows 8. I've been running Windows 8.1 since the Preview version that came out a few months ago, and the official release version that came out this week. While Windows 8.1 does make some improvements to Windows 8, it is still is not an O/S that is desktop friendly. On the positive side, you can now boot directly to your desktop without using a 3rd party utility, and the "Start Button" is back (sorta). On the negative side, Microsoft has still left out the "Media Center", and still charges a ridiculous $99 to purchase the "Pro-Pack" to regain the same functionality that was free in Windows 7(Home Premium). There is still lack of quality Windows 8 apps. Windows 8.1 does very little to improve navigation through the O/S if you're using a mouse/keyboard, and not a touchscreen. At least Microsoft did not attempt to charge Windows 8 users to upgrade.Windows 8.1 does fix some of the issues people running... 3/5 D. Hentze (United States) - See all my reviews, October 18, 2013

    I've had Windows 8 for awhile and hated every minute of it, but today, I've spent so much time frustrated by my own computer I had to post a review/rant. There is virtually nothing positive changed from Windows 7. Every change--from the terrible tile display to how difficult it is to run two programs side by side--makes the OS less user friendly for almost every task. And why do I need to sign in to my computer with an email address? I don't want everything I own to be completely connected. I didn't realize that I could use my Xbox account for this stupid PC when I set it up, so I created a new account. Now, I can't connect to my own Xbox account on this computer because I am signed in with a "different windows user." Obviously, there's no way to merge the accounts, because that would make too much sense.Look, I am by no means an Apple or Linux fangirl. I have used Windows computers for twenty years.

    It's exactly what it says. No surprise.

    Everything to say about Windows 8 has been said a thousandfold, but I've got nothing to work on this minute and Amazon wants me to review my purchase, so here's my 2 cents.I'm not too fond of the Windows 8 design, although 8.1 and the recently released update have improved things a bit. For the most part, however, I do find the interface reasonably easy to learn and entirely usable (even when working with several windows on the desktop, and using a keyboard and mouse). Though I don't know why there aren't options to revive traditional interface elements like the start menu, everything seems to exist if you take a day or two to learn where to find it. The start->programs menu, for example, is now a full screen menu. It can be reached by pressing win key for the start screen (which is NOT the new equivalent of the programs menu - only the frequently used items), followed by 'tab' 'enter' to scroll below to the menu.

    Still a big step backwards for desktops and laptops

    A lot of noise was made about Windows 8 removing the start menu, and that's problematic, but it misses the real point of why Windows 8 gets such bad reviews from so many users: nothing was added back to replace or improve the lost functionality and MANY things were added that don't seem to do anything but annoy and impede.I'm a network administrator using Windows 8.1 because I have to in order to take advantage of the new management tools for Hyper-V 3.0. I've had a number of problems so far:1. The Server Manager that is added by the RSAT download is nice, but everything it can do you can do with remote PowerShell commands and some things it can't do that you HAVE to do with remote PowerShell commands (or enable remote desktop and actually log into the server remotely).2. Windows 8.1, like 8.0, still gets in your way by default even though the option is finally there to get it out of your way in some cases. For example, you still have to use local... 2/5 Christopher M. Shatto - See all my reviews, October 20, 2013

It takes me 20 minutes to complete a task that would normally take 30 seconds in Windows 7. They should have made Win 8 just like Win 7 with the option to use metro. Not forced into it.

Would have been nice to have the option to choose and slowly migrate to an app style OS. I feel like we went back in time. Even the metro theme looks old and crusty with its...

    Worth the Wait

    I'll admit, I've been running Windows 7 for six months now: the preproduction version of it and have just upgraded to the gold code. So I have quite a bit of experience with the operating system. Let's get to the nitty gritty:Should you upgrade from Windows Vista? YES! I mean it - upgrade today.Windows 7 is quite simply faster, more stable, boots faster, goes to sleep faster, comes back from sleep faster, manages your files better and on top of that it's beautiful to look at and easy to use. Even the preproduction version of Windows 7 was better than my Vista with SP2.Should you upgrade from Windows XP? Maybe, but for different reasons.XP is a good operating system and if you don't need to add new hardware or software, XP is good. However, XP is old as an operating system. Also chances are that if you're running XP, you might not meet the minimum requirements for Windows 7 - check the compatibility site at Microsoft to see if your system will... 5/5 RenaissanceMan - See all my reviews, October 22, 2009

    Plan Before you Buy

    If you're looking at Ultimate, chances are it's for one of these three reasons:1) You have Vista Ultimate and don't want to lose all your programs/settings (more on this in a moment)2) You want BitLocker hardware-level encryption. You'll need to do some tinkering with a USB key or have hardware that supports it (see comments to this review for details)3) You regularly work in multiple languages and need to easily switch from one to the otherUnlike Vista Ultimate, Windows 7 Ultimate doesn't offer DreamScenes or any other eye candy different from its cousins Home and Pro. In fact, if you were a fan of the Windows Vista DreamScenes, you should know that you will be losing them when you step up to Windows 7.Some very important things you need to know about upgrading:1) There are two types of upgrade: "in-place" (where a Vista machine upgrades to 7 and you get to keep all your programs) and "clean" (where you lose all your old... 4/5 Winter (USA) - See all my reviews, November 1, 2009

    Here Comes Windows 7

    Here comes Windows 7, nearly three years after Windows Vista and eight years after Windows XP. By most accounts, Windows 7 is what Vista should have been. Do we finally have a worthy successor to XP?** CLEAN UPGRADE UPDATE BELOW 10/29/09 **PROS:- Fast startup and performance- Stable- Nice aesthetic and functional changes to the desktop- Improved networking, power management & security- 32-bit & 64-bit versions included- Windows Media Center- Windows XP ModeCONS:- User Account Control still annoying- Upgrade can be challenging- ExpensiveCLEAN UPGRADE UPDATE 10/29/09 **It seems that a lot of upgraders have been complaining about the upgrade process, especially from XP. Most of us expected to be able to format our hard disks and be prompted for either the XP disc or product key. Alas, this is not the case. The upgrade is much more complicated than it should be and some... 4/5 Ed (San Francisco Bay Area) - See all my reviews, October 22, 2009
