Tech Kings have reviewed the OCZ Technology Vector 256GB SSD - here's what they thought about it:\n \n[QUOTE]"Overall, we love where OCZ is going with their Indilinx acquisition. They are taking control of the hardware and software and melding them together into great looking and even better-performing packages. The aesthetics of the Vector drive, is, in my opinion, the most "premium" of any SSD I've used. It's rock solid, is slim at 7mm, is notably hefty (anyone looking to utilize a 7mm drive might want to take special note of the weight), and the Vectro graphics are also not as boring as other drives. We still think it would be neat for the aesthetically-conscious builders out ther to offer "add-on" stickers if they'd prefer not have blue showing in their drive bays (yeah, this might be a reach, but I have not doubt it's a consideration for some).\n \n\nThe performance of OCZ's Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller is much more balanced than the slew of Sandforce SF-2800 drives while still maintaining great peak throughput. The Barefoot 3 controller really excels when handling incompressible data which the SandForce drives struggle with, and essentially swept the field and had nearly double the write throughput as many other drives we've tested. Impressive. The Vector SSDs also make improvements in write amplification as well as sustained performance for continuous/heavy workloads. Also of note is that in ATTO, we saw the Vector 256GB drive hitting its peak throughput as low as 128K whereas most other drives don't begin to peak out until 512K or even 1024K. Rounding it out, we see strong and balanced high queue depth/thread operation, which shows us that the Vector drive will be a good candidate for those who anticipate putting their SSDs into an intense work environment..."[/QUOTE]\n \nYou can read their full thoughts [URL="http://www.tech-kings.net/home/review/ssd-storage/338-ocz-vector-256gb-ssd-review"]here[/URL].
