First Look

The first thing you'll notice about the Vertex 3.20 is the all-new packaging. As far as I know, this is the first time that OCZ has used a hanging blister pack for their SSD. I suppose it does have its advantages in retail but note this new drive (perhaps because of the packaging) doesn't include a 3.5-inch drive bay adapter. It's not a huge deal as most modern aftermarket cases now include 2.5-inch drive bays but it's worth pointing out. If you're eyeballing this drive for a notebook, however, it's a non-issue.

While not pictured, the retail package includes an SSD sticker, installation manual and warranty information.

There really isn't much to see on the outside as the drive looks like any other SSD from OCZ (or any other company for that matter). The top features an updated branding sticker while the bottom includes the obligatory data sheet and tamper-evident sticker. As usual there are mounting holes on the side rails as well as on the bottom for increased flexibility during installation.

Continue ahead as we pop the drive open and have a look at the internals.
