OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB SSD

Cosmetically the 3.20 isn't much different from the last known Vertex 3 drives on the market. It uses the same black plastic cover over a metal base tray.

The part number now has an extra .20 at the end. All of the mounting points are located on the metal base tray.

Vertex 3.20 remains a 9.5mm Z-height drive. Before OCZ neutered their product map, they had a 7mm Vertex 3, but those are long gone now. We're a bit surprised OCZ didn't move Vertex 3.20 over to the 7mm form factor and reduce the number of different cases used. The 7mm Vertex 3 appears to use the same case as Vector. Then again, OCZ may have several 9.5mm case in a warehouse and this drive is a good excuse to get rid of them.

The SATA power and data connectors are where they should be.

A peek inside the 240GB capacity size allows us to see the controller and sixteen 20nm Intel NAND flash chips.

OCZ used the standard SF-2281 VB1 controller and not the new VB2 (B02 stepping).
