    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

    The worst

    What makes Windows 8 such a disaster? Simple--it's an interface designed for a smartphone, not for a PC. Here's what that means. When you power on your PC, what you get instead of a normal Windows desktop is a brightly colored screen with a bunch of "tiles", most of which are advertisements for "apps" that you have little or no use for. There's no start button, no taskbar, no tools, no menus, no links to anything except the useless "apps". It's a huge step backward to the pre-Windows days of computing.It turns out that if you hover your mouse pointer over certain parts of the screen, various cryptic flyout symbols (instead of easily understood menus) will appear. If you click on these symbols (and don't let your pointer slip off of them or they disappear and you have to go fishing for them again) you're taken into a confusing maze of options that substitute for normal Windows functions and must be explored in linear, sequential fashion.

    Annoying/Frustrating/Confusing/Time Consuming/Redundant

    Microsoft has been getting progressively intrusive with each newer version of Windows. The intrusiveness has brought along a feeling of utmost annoyance and persistent anger. It wont allow an unprotected login. Further, each MS outlook ID has to be associated with another 'MS live' login. I have not used hotmail/live/outlook for 10 years as I switched to better and more usable mail interfaces (re Gmail). Nonetheless, I provided my outdated hotmail account just to bypass the installation process (which took 2 hours+ and restarted the pc three times). This morning, I was not able to log in with my password and after repeated attempts, MS instructed me to reset the password at outlook.live.com. The only way one can reset the password is a call/text on the cellphone or an email to the hotmail/live account - why wouldnt they have a couple security questions. why go through the rigamarole of sending the code to another account/device. Leave it to MS engineers to design a process in the most... 1/5 S. Patel "Soundfreak" (New Orleans LA) - See all my reviews, November 26, 2013

    This is the single license OEM version which means you can only install it on one PC (no license transfer allowed) and there is no tech support from Microsoft but if you're buying this version, you probably already know that. This version has the 8.1 upgrade patches baked in so you don't have suffer through the (free) update if you have the 8.0 version and that alone is worth it for me. Some of the highlights with 8.1 include the ability to boot to the desktop as well as customization tweaks with wallpapers and the app start screen.I've docked it one star due to the confusing start screen/app screen/desktop layout. I don't think it really works that well and seems needlessly complicated.The modern/metro apps are often cartoonish and sort of a waste.

    Flexible and Versitile OS

    Windows 8.1 does a good job of polishing the new Windows functionality added in Windows 8. Windows 8 was a little rough around the edges in some ways.Windows 8 and 8.1 are basically improved versions of Windows 7 that also have the ability to OPTIONALLY run Windows Store (tablet/touch optimized) apps as well. The benefit of this is that it gives you the ability to use one OS and set of applications on any device including a multi-monitor desktop, laptop, tablet, or some hybrid combination of those. There is a bit of a learning curve with Windows 8.x, but once you spend a little time with it and configure it for the device it's installed on, you can move seamlessly between traditional keyboard/mouse optimized desktop programs and full screen touch/tablet optimized apps on the same device depending on what you need to get done. You can even have a tablet that plugs into a docking station and becomes a multi-monitor desktop. This isn't something that can currently be done with... 5/5 C.

    Cheaper than buying the non-upgrade version.

    I've had my issues with Windows 8 when it first came out, but to be honest, I've gotten over a lot of them. I don't like the fact that the typical start menu has been taken away, and I'm not a fan of the tile menu, but overall I've actually noticed I have to go through far less clicking to get to what I want. Once you figure out exactly how to use Windows 8, you'll be flying through all the menus at almost half the time you would on Windows 7 or XP.As long as you can read, you'll notice that this is an upgrade, not a bootable install. In order to install Windows 8 with this upgrade, you must at least have Windows Xp, Vista, or 7. It doesn't matter if it is 32-bit or 64-bit (unless you want 64-bit and you currently have 32-bit, but I'll get to that in a moment.)Upgrading is easy.

    Will the GUI Stick With You?

    BEFORE YOU UPGRADE: stop by the Microsoft website and run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant (link in the comments). This program will comb through your system and offer you detailed analysis of what will and won't upgrade. It offers links to articles that explain in detail what you may need to do, and it can save you a lot of headaches. For example, I have a laptop with no USB drivers--yet! I now have a link to the manufacturer's website that I've bookmarked and when drivers become available I'll upgrade that machine too.Windows 7 has been a well-received OS, so the case for upgrading to Windows 8 has been difficult for Microsoft to make. While the look and feel of Windows 8 is strikingly different, for the most part it boils down to one huge change: the Start Menu that we have had since Windows 95 is no longer a menu. Icons are now displayed as tiles of varying widths in a full-screen splash. Some of this makes sense in that some of today's programs are more like... 3/5 Winter (USA) - See all my reviews, October 26, 2012

It is unbelievable that they think it is ok for this to be rolled out into a business where it would certainly kill productivity for a week or more.So much that was second nature is gone:1) Right-click? doesn't do anything anymore.2) File, edit, ... menu? non existent, it's up to you to figure out the magical keystrokes to do all that stuff now3) Little X in the upper corner to click and close the app? no such ease, you are expected figure out the puzzle of how to close apps on your own with absolutely no context or conveyance from the OS to guide you4) Multitasking and multiple windows open at once?
