OCZ Octane Series 3 256GB Overview

Solid state drives are components with one of the biggest impacts on a computer’s performance, decreasing operating system and application load times. There’s a catch, though – their price. SSDs come with a price-per-GB that’s significantly higher than the price-per-GB of a mechanical hard drive, making users usually opt for SSDs with a very low storage capacity.

Things are starting to change, though, as the OCZ Octane Series 3 256GB SSD provides plenty of storage space for an operating system, a ton of applications and even some games, all without blowing your budget and, most importantly, without compromising performance. The unit offers speeds of up to 535MB/s when it comes to reading and up to 270MB/s for writing, which is enough to make your PC zip through files and applications. If you also take into account the fact that the unit doesn’t generate any heat or noise whatsoever while operating it’s pretty clear we’re dealing with a winner here.
