OCZ Vector 256GB Solid State Drive Review

28 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Just recently we bought to you OCZ’s Agility. A good little drive which was aimed at bring good performance to the masses as a pretty price. We saw the drive test ok but wasn’t anything breaking. It wasn’t meant to be. But if you are looking to bring ultimate performance to your desktop, ultrabook or laptop, than the new OCZ Vector maybe what you are after.

OCZ Vector 256GB Solid State Drive

12 May 2013
  • Conclusion: TRIM Performance: While SSD's offer many benefits, there are some downsides to using flash memory. One of the biggest issues people run into is performance degradation. Over time, an SSD will run out of fresh blocks and will have to write over data the file system has marked as deleted. This procedure is very complicated and can slow an SSD's write speeds considerably. To fix this problem, most manufacturers have added TRIM support to their SSDs.
  • Pros: Available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities, Excellent sequential read and write speeds, Good random read and write performance, Performs equally well with compressible and incompressible data, Good looking, ultra-slim design, SATA 6Gb/s interface, Synchronous NAND flash, Large DRAM cache, Supports TRIM and idle background garbage collection, Includes a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter bracket, Includes Acronis True Image cloning software, 5 year warranty
  • Cons: Pricey, Does not support hardware based encryption

  • Conclusion: The United States Air Force claims that the F-22 Raptor "cannot be matched by any known or projected fighter aircraft". Without doubt, this is quite a statement to make. What makes it the best fighter? Clearly, it is not one individual factor that makes a particular product superior over the competition -- the matchless-in-every-way stigma can never be composed properly by being just the fastest plane, having the best stealth coating, loaded with the biggest bombs, or...

OCZ Vector 256GB Solid State Drive

OverClock Intelligence Agency

  • Summary: OCZ has been a pioneer in the solid state drive field for more than four years now. Some of their models, like the high-performance Vertex and mainstream Agility series are in their fourth generation design. In purchasing Indilinx, OCZ brings controller manufacture in-house, and for the first time allows them to offer a product different from all the other "me-too" SSD makers.

OCZ Vector 256GB Solid State Drive Review

4 January 2013
  • Summary: Final Thoughts If the Vector was the last ditch effort of a dying company it would be a valiant one, but I don’t see OCZ going anywhere.  The Barefoot 3 controller is what OCZ has been working towards for the past few years.  This is why they made the acquisitions they did and I am sure it is going to pay off.  Up until now OCZ used other companies technologies in their solid state drives, much like everyone else in the space.
  • Pros: – Great performance, – Solid data transfer performance, – Acronis True Image software included, – Does not have the incompressible data issue like SandForce drives, – 5 year warranty
  • Cons: – None that I found

OCZ Vector 256 GB

3 January 2013
  • Summary: OCZ's Vector SSD is an excellent new drive that will provide positive momentum to OCZ, which has recently been plagued by poor business news. This drive's in-house Indilinx controller and its cheap, readily available synchronous NAND flash also lead to better margins for OCZ by ensuring cheap production costs. In our testing, we see the Vector 256 GB cruise past most other drives, no matter which controller they use.
  • Pros: Very high performance, Stable steady-state performance, Supports TRIM, 5 -year warranty, 7 mm thin - Ultrabook compatible, Acronis TrueImage HD license included
  • Cons: High price

OCZ Vector 256GB Solid State Drive Review

26 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Up to the point where I got the Vector on our test bench, the Vertex 4 was one of the yard sticks so to say that we marked all other drives on the market against, based on its performance all round and no matter what we threw at it. The Vector though has now re-written the rule book and it looks like we’ve got ourselves a brand new yard stick to measure against.

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD review: with Indilinx Barefoot 3

27 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Today OCZ launched a new SSD series under the name Vector. OCZ is aiming at the high-end segment with these, more or less as a follow-up to the existing Vertex 4 series. The interesting part about the new SSD is the controller, as the Indilinx Barefoot 3 has been developed by OCZ themselves. Hardware.Info tested the Vector to find out whether it can hold its own against the other fast SSDs that recently came out.
