Review OCZ Vector 256 GB (VTR1-25SAT3-256G)


Barefoot 3. The OCZ Vector is the latest product to challenge the Samsung 840 Pro for the title of the best performing SSD on the market. This review will throw some light on the giant strides OCZ has made in the development of the Indilinx Barefoot 3...

In the following table, we present all the test values in comparison to the Samsung SSD 840 Pro, the Intel SSD 520 and the Vertex 4. On average, the 840 Pro just barely supersedes the Vector 256 GB. You can clearly see the improvement in performance in...

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Review


Extremely fast in every test; Looks and feels high quality; five-year warranty


Say hello to what most of us would have considered the new OCZ Vertex 5 SSD: the OCZ Vector 256GB SSD. That’s right; this isn’t some offshoot, sub-par asynchronous NAND-using bargain basement drive, but OCZ’s new benchmark-busting flagship SSD, and the...

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD


We have in our labs OCZ' s latest SATA solid state drive, the Vector 256GB SSD. The Vector SSD Series is featuring the company's next-generation Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller and promises to provide exceptional input/output operations per second...

Overall we are impressed by the Vector, as it proved to be a solid step forward for OCZ compared to the Vertex 4, highly competitive to other high-performing SSDs such as Samsung's offerings and still, very reliable and stable during operation.

Review: OCZ Vector 256GB SSD


Today we have OCZ's brand new, just launched, Vector SSD! It sets itself apart from previous drives mostly from the standpoint of having the first entirely in-house controller from OCZ! It also has a metal case, which is nice.

Very, very, very fast ; Looks great ; Nice solid case ; Good price ; Comes with a 3.5" mounting bracket and plenty of screws

Thin form factor makes docks designed for older, thicker, SSDs awkward ; Whacking $10-$20 off the price would make it an unbeatable value

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Review


The past few months have been quite trying for OCZ. Everything from missed financial targets to rumors of layoffs and class action suits have filled

After all the setbacks in recent months, OCZ needed a new consumer-level product which categorically proved they were still a force to be

Still going strong


I purchased this drive when it originally came out. I'm willing to buy another one now that Toshiba has bought OCZ.

Reliable, Fast, Sleek Design

Nothing, I have had zero issues

Fast Drive, Short Life


Latest firmware update is supposed to fix some of the problems with failing drives. RMA process was painless. I received a new Vector 150 240GB SSD as a replacement. Total time for RMA was about 2 weeks. I did have to pay for shipping but that was a...

Very fast SSD ; Much improved RMA support from OCZ from my experience ; Came with 3.5" adapter and screws if you need them

Died after a little over a year ; Started failing right before the new firmware was released

Avoid this SSD


Very glad I bought a two year warranty. I'm on my third one. However my other OCZ products work fine and I've never had problems with them
