Again, during all of this testing the Vertex 3 and its SF-2281 controller had not encountered any issues running under Linux with the 3.0 stable kernel release.

For those interested in how the Vertex 3 does using a Btrfs file-system and its SSD optimizations rather than just the common EXT4 file-system, those benchmarks are coming. Look for more OCZ Vertex 3 in the next few weeks that will look at the performance of this SATA 3.0 SSD when using Btrfs under Linux 3.1, since after all, Btrfs is the future.

With the drives that the OCZ Vertex 3 240GB was compared to, it obviously came out the winner, but should provide a better understanding to Linux users as to how this SATA 3.0 drive performs and the speed differences compared to older solid-state storage devices. Serial ATA 3.0 does work under Linux. The OCZ Vertex 3 was also stable and provided no issues with the Ubuntu 11.10 (64-bit) development snapshot and worked like a charm, just like OCZ's other storage products as they continue to dominate the SSD market.

While the V3LT-25SAT3-240G is mighty fast, it does carry a high price tag. The Vertex 3 240GB version currently retails for ~$430 USD with an earlier price of $480. Those interested in the speed of the Vertex 3 SSD but looking for something less expensive, the 60GB version retails for around $120 USD.

Those wishing to compare their own system's disk performance to these disk results can do so using the Phoronix Test Suite and the results stored on OpenBenchmarking.org by simply running: phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1108236-LI-OCZSSDTES92.
