OCZ Techonology's acquisition of Indilinx has paid off for them with the stellar performance of the Vertex 4 SSD, and taking it a step further, their new Vector series SSDs. Having the ability to design the drive's controller has allowed OCZ the nimbleness and flexibility to tune their drives to be faster and have more balanced performance than their primary competitors. In addition to leading the speeds in almost every test, the balanced performance is huge in differentiating it from its similarly-priced sibling, the Vertex 4.
OCZ Technology Vector 256GB SSD
The Vector Series delivers a new industry-leading solid state storage solution for the high-end consumer and workstation user. Meet the storage expectations you didn't know you had.
Vector delivers the industry's fastest performance. Rated for 100,000 random read and 95,000 random write IOPS to deliver ultimate responsiveness and a better overall computing and workstation experience than any other storage solution.
Vector redefines reliability and offers a premium SSD solution designed from the ground up for enhanced stability, quality, and durability.
Get consistently faster sustained speeds with the complete spectrum of file types and sizes, including both compressible and incompressible data for balanced, long-lasting performance like no other drive out there.
Built to last, Vector maximizes drive life with low write amplification, efficient garbage collection, and an advanced suite of NAND flash management to provide years of hard drive-humiliating performance that is second to none.
With a sleek 7mm housing, Vector's slim z-height ensures compatibility with the latest thinner form factor notebooks. Alloy casing lends style that matches your taste for modern storage.

Inside the pretty standard package is an equally-standard "payload." A swanky sticker allows you to let everyone know where your heart lies (I haven't decided if I like this better than their "My SSD is Faster Than Yours" stickers). Also included in addition to the SSD drive itself is a leaflet of warranty info and basic instructions and a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch drive adapter for installing into standard hard drive bays. OCZ has also bundled a copy of Acronis® True Image to keep your documents and files revisioned and safe.
