    Its coming in the 7mm part. OCZ says "Thank you" for funding their R/D and product development by purchasing the early adopter special Vertex 3. Reply

    Different controllers. The same bugs shouldn't be present. Reply

    The issue sounds like it will be fixed with 2.13. Apparently Intel Chipsets have faulty SATA ports (Spec'd wrong). The posts were treating some V3's as an external drive which have a different power profile then an internal drive. The new firmware is supposedly going to mimic an Intel 510 so it should be good. http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread... Reply

    Why bother with 7.5mm 2.5" SSDs when we can jump straight to mSATA drives? Color me confused. Reply

    To be honest, I don't see the point either. Others have also said that many SSDs are convertible to 7mm by removing some plastic. Reply

    A lot of SSDs are already 7.5/9.5mm convertible. E.g., my Crucial SSD. By default, it's 9.5mm. But if I need it to be 7.5mm, there is a removable plastic spacer that I can take out and, voilà, it's 7.5mm! I think Intel does the same with their SSDs. It makes absolutely no sense to make a 7.5mm SSD when you could so easily make one that's convertible between the two thicknesses that would appeal to a broader market??! Reply

    So avoid the LG P220. Gotcha. Reply

    My Intel 320 drive fits in 7mm, if you take the plastic riser off. Had to get some screws from a very helpful guy in intel's community forum (if you read this thanks man!) but all in all it fit perfectly into my Lenovo X220 netbook. Reply
