Default Interesting.

Interesting, might actually be faster than their original Vertex 2. Somehow, I doubt it though. The new SSD's are using the smaller geometry flash parts which are SLOWER than the older ones...

Sorry unreg but the V3s are a boat load faster than the V2s. So much faster that I have stopped buying first gen SF drives all together. ;)

Default ok

Is this your opinion? Or can you post actual benchmarks of V3's to back up your claim?

Knowing AkG probably from first hand experience.

I purchased a Vertex 3 standard and so far not impressed with its stuttering OOTB (LPM issues with P8P67 when not in Hot Plug mode), or its slow random reads... but anything sequential is BLAZING FAST compared to my X25-M G2.

More saddened by the fact they announce a Max IOPs version AFTER I purchase my standard edition. For my usage I'd sacrifice sequential for faster randoms.

Yes I can and will be...its called a Vertex 3 review. So its not a claim its a fact based upon over 50 hours of testing. ;)

Expect a review sometime in the near future.

+1

AkG, I currently own a 60GB VERTEX 2 will I see and substantial speed increase in day-to-day usage to warrant upgrading?

Is it worth upgrading from Crucial C300 256GB to a Vertex3 similar capacity?
My guess is that there would be little difference in day-to-day use, but I might be wrong.
