OCZ vs other SSD brands

If you are comparing OCZ vs other brands of SSD I would suggest you look at their performance/price points in the breakdown below.

OCZ Vertex 3 series vs Intel 510/Corsair Force GT
- All models are SATA 6GB/s. OCZ/Corsair uses the latest Sandforce controller while Intel uses a Marvell controller. The Vertex 3 MAX IOPS uses 34nm NAND vs 25nm NAND used by other brands/OCZ models hence the higher price.

OCZ Agility 3 vs Corsair Force Series 3 - Agility 3 is SATA 6GB/s & uses the same Sandforce controller as the Vertex 3 but overall performance is slower due to the use of asynchronous NAND. Corsair Force Series 3 is similar in the use of asynchronous NAND

OCZ Vertex 2 vs Intel 320 - Vertex 2 & the Intel 320 are both SATA 3Gb/s. The Vertex 2 uses the previous generation Sandforce controller while Intel 320's controller is a upgraded version from their previous generation X25M-G2.

OCZ SSD vs Corsair SSD

OCZ Agility 3 = Corsair Force 3 (Asynchronous NAND Flash memory)

OCZ Vertex 3 = Corsair Force GT (Synchronous NAND Flash memory)

Vertex 3 Max IOPS = Corsair has no similar model

Introducing a new concept in SSD - OCZ Synapse

These SSD are designed to be used with your traditional mechanical HDD to achieve SSD like speeds.

Available at Fuwell

64GB - $189

128GB - $309

OCZ Synapse 64GB Caching SSD Review by VR-Zone.com
http://thessdreview.com/our-reviews/...great-price/7/
http://www.futurelooks.com/ocz-techn...sd-reviewed/2/
In Cantonese http://www.mycpu.com.hk/528/

In summary,

OCZ Synapse - Good choice for users who need a large OS drive (more than 240GB) as high capacity SSDs are still extremely costly.

OCZ Agility 3/Vertex 3 - For users who can live with a smaller OS drive (up to 240GB). Best overall access speed; SSD with OS combine with a mechanical HDD for storage.

Large capacity SSD too expensive for now? Take a look at the OCZ Revodrive Hybrid. Raid like SSD speeds with 1TB of storage!

Limited stocks available at Fuwell

This review conclusion sums up the usage scenario for the Revodrive Hybrid nicely

http://hothardware.com/Reviews/OCZ-R...ss-SSD/?page=1

If you're the type of user who can get by with all of his or her commonly used apps installed on a mid-sized SSD, still have room to spare, along with a modern system with SATA III support, a standalone SSD paired to a hard drive for bulk storage would most likely be the ideal set up for peak performance. But for users who need more capacity and work with large files (video for example) regularly that will benefit from the RevoDrive Hybrid's extremely fast peak transfer speeds, a hybrid solution like this one would also be beneficial. Another example would be users who have large Outlook PST files or Steam gaming directories. My Steam folder as I write this is 122GB and my Outlook PST is approaching 2GB. With the RevoDrive Hybrid, all of that data can be stored on the device and as the most frequently accessed bits were cached to the SSD, it would offer SSD-like performance with plenty of capacity to spare on the HD. With a standalone SSD in the 100-128GB range, that Steam folder simply wouldn't fit on the drive along with an OS, etc, so it would be stuck completely on the HD. Of course you could always spring for a larger SSD, but then we get into the same price range as the RevoDrive Hybrid. And keep in mind, this thing can push upwards of a GB per second under ideal conditions and work in any system with a PCIe x4 slot. It would take two, fast SATA III SSDs running in RAID 0 to even approach those speeds.

How to update OCZ Vertex3/Agility3/Solid3 to Firmware 2.09

Firmware 2.09 just came out hot from the oven

It's just a few days ago when the firmware 2.08 came out, this firmware might help to alleviate BSODs, freezes issues etc

Official changelog isn't out at the moment

For step by step instructions, please read the guide posted by RyderOCZ (Official Support Manager - OCZ NA) on how to update the firmware

http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...l-using-FW2.02

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

For myself, I do not experienced any BSOD but occasionally freezing does occurred once in a while in RAID 0 mode so trying to pinpoint what's the issue whether Intel RST or something else causes it. OCZ have confirmed Intel RST is the root source that is causing the BSOD

OCZ Vertex 3 is like a pretty voluptuous mistress that needs to be tame as to compare to Intel SSD which is like a wifey

As usual

Disclaimer ~> Please make sure you read/know the actual procedures of updating the OCZ SSD firmware. Please do not attempt the update if you are unfamiliar and it might brick your OCZ SSD. I will not be held responsible in whatsoever manner as I'm only providing information on availability of the firmware

BSOD Issue –2.09 Customer Patch Firmware Update

BSOD Issue –2.09 Customer Patch Firmware Update

OCZ is continuing to see a very low incident of BSODs and the vast majority of customers should never experience the issue. It continues to be very difficult to replicate, but OCZ continues to work closely with SandForce and has identified a number of items that affect the BSOD occurrence and has determined new fixes to address the issue. We recommend any customers that have experienced the BSOD issue do the following:

1. Please ensure that the SSD is connected to your system with a high quality SATA cable that is rated for SATA 6Gbps; these cables are often supplied with motherboards and do not use SATA cables that are intended for use with previous generation drives.

2. For Intel platform users we recommend using the latest release of the Intel RST driver (10.1.0.1008)

3. If after both of these implementations you are still experiencing any BSODs, we have a firmware patch with SATA timing optimizations that we believe will address the issue. Currently, this new firmware is only recommended for customers that have observed the BSOD issue. This firmware version slightly affects sequential write performance as adjustments were made in the timings. OCZ anticipates future optimizations to the base code to minimize any performance delta associated with this temporary workaround.

Moving forward OCZ will be also adding a feature in the Toolbox which allows customers to select a setting to adjust response times. We thank all of our customers for your support and patience and will continue to provide further updates and additional tools for any customers affected by any issues, and continue to work diligently to deliver the best solutions for our customers.

Mirrored from VRZ over for you guys reference on how to flash the OCZ firmware

For me, i was unable to flash the previous filmware, unable to detect ssd.
Will try again.
Hi spyboy, did you follow RyderOCZ step by step guide?

How to update Vertex3/Agility3/Solid3 to Firmware 2.09

In order to update your drive to firmware version 2.09 for your Vertex3/Agility3/Solid3 drive, you need to be on firmware 2.06 or 2.08. If you are on version 2.02 still, then you will need to update twice, once to 2.06, then to 2.09.

Follow the instructions below for updating your firmware:

1. Use the OCZ Toolbox or check device manager for your current firmware version. Link to firmware in device manager

2. If the SSD contains firmware version 2.06 or higher (v2.06, v2.08, v2.09RC1), simply upgrade the firmware version to 2.09 using OCZ Toolbox v2.37 or the bootable Linux based Tools here: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...e-Driven-SSD-s

3. If the SSD contains firmware version lower than 2.06 (v2.02), it MUST first be upgraded to v2.06 BEFORE upgrading to v2.09.

4. In order to update to 2.06, since it is no longer the main firmware release, you will need a special version of Toolbox or the bootable Linux based tools.
a. Here is the special version of Toolbox
b. Here is the special version of the Linux ISO
Both tools look and work just like the originals, but they will only update the firmware to 2.06, so please delete them when you are done. This will prevent their use on future firmware updates where they won't work.

5. Once you have completed step 4, you can then use the standard Toolbox v2.37 or the Linux based tools to update your firmware to v2.09.
a. Download link for the standard toolbox
b. Download link for the standard Linux based Tools

6. Done.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

My initial shipped OCZ firmware is 2.06 if you are wondering

Anyway was having some trouble with the firmware yesterday via OCZ Linux SSD Tools method

After preparing the necessary ISO on my USB stick/boot into the linux blah blah

Hassle begins

2 OCZ SSDs was in locked/frozen mode



so was trying to unfreeze via the unfreeze icon method



But i simply can't wake up my PC via pressing the spacebar and pressing power button run into error POST CODE, maybe i have disable all sleep functions on both the bios and windows, but i'm lazy to trying to pinpoint which so i did the remove power connector only method from the SSDs while the PC running. This works and the SSDs got unlocked

Hassle 2 ~> The Linux refuses to assign with an IP address, eth0 is detected and DHCP on everything according to the guide, can't do via the wireless method so no wireless card on my rig either. So i gave up and got fed up

So i took the OCZ SSDs out to update it via OCZ Toolbox on my test rig, swee swee and done in just 2 mins for both, Updating the firmware doesn't even break the RAID 0 array

So testing begins remount back in the same order, install Intel 10.5 RST RAID, enable hot plug, enable write back cache, disabled all power saving options, disable ALPM etc

The SSDs are flying no freezing, no BSOD, no shuttering whatsoever

Before

Unoptimized OCZ Vertex 3 240GB RAID 0 FW 2.06



After

Final Results ~ Improved OCZ Vertex 3 240GB RAID 0 FW 2.09

OCZ Vertex 3 Freezes, Locks Up, Stutters and Crashes

Greetings my fellow Vertex 3 owners. After waiting endlessly for the Vertex 3, I was finally able to get a hold of it! Quality Control issues aside, there are people experiencing freezing, crashing, lockups and stuttering. I know I experienced these problems.

OCZ Vertex 3 Released

After research and trial/error I was able to come up with some various solutions to help resolve this problem. I will be writing a solid state optimization article as well, and you will find it to be redudent. Why? Because these fixes can improve performance while removing problems.

Part 1 - OCZ Vertex 3 AHCI or to not AHCI?
The new Intel Chipset contains both the Marvell Controller and the AHCI Controller. It his highly recommended that you use the AHCI Controller (Intel Ports) when given the opportunity. Not only can this be more stable, but it can increase performance.

OCZ Freezes and Locks Up from Power Settings
You should disable "turn hard drive off" in the power settings option in Windows. Allowing the hard drive to turn off can create some stability problems because the SATA Specification has an issue right now with the LPM Feature that Intel has.

Enable "Hot Plugging" for Vertex 3
Enabling Hot Plugging will increase your stability some as well. It may stop your Vertex 3 from Locking Up. OCZ recommends this.

Install the Latest Intel RST (Rapid Storage Technology) Software for Vertex 3
Intel is frequently making updates to their Rapid Storage Software. Expect more to come out to completely fix this problem. For now, install the latest version for optimal performance. You can find and download the latest Intel RST Software here.

Edit your Registry File to Fix the Vertex 3 from Freezing and Locking up, and Increase Performance
This step is a little tricky, but here we go. I highly recommend this because it solved virtually all the issues my drive had, and even increased the performance. This is a work around to the problem with the Intel RST Software.

Copy the entire quote below:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStor\Parameters\Port0]
"LPM"=dword:00000000
"LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000
"DIPM"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStor\Parameters\Port1]
"LPM"=dword:00000000
"LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000
"DIPM"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStor\Parameters\Port2]
"LPM"=dword:00000000
"LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000
"DIPM"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStor\Parameters\Port3]
"LPM"=dword:00000000
"LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000
"DIPM"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStor\Parameters\Port4]
"LPM"=dword:00000000
"LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000
"DIPM"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStor\Parameters\Port5]
"LPM"=dword:00000000
"LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000
"DIPM"=dword:00000000

Open notepad and paste it. Save the file as "ocz.reg" and make sure your selected file type is "all". This should turn the file into a registry file. Now open the file and hit yes to add. Restart your computer and it should be done!

Note: Only do this if you know what you are doing. We do not take responsibility for your actions. I have used this fix and had success along with many others. You can view the original post written by Zoork here. Don't worry, this works for multiple solid state drives, not just the C300.

If you did all these fixes listed above, you should have a full functioning drive. If the above did not fix anything, then you may have a defective product. This drive really is amazing, so I hope that fixed it for you.

Still looking at getting this drive? Well you can read our OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS Edition Vs Regular Edition article here to help you with your decision.

Article ~> http://geekmontage.com/texts/ocz-ver...s-and-crashes/

~Serious Note ~
Only attempt the reg fix if you are still experiencing freezing & locking up after hot enable/turn the hard disk off @ power options/Intel RST etc
FW 2.09 is for BSOD only
Installing of Intel RST 10.5 is your own risk, OCZ recommends Intel RST 10.1.0.1008. For me i just whack
