Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Vector is OCZ's flagship consumer SSD. OCZ released this drive in three capacity sizes - 128GB, 256GB and the model we're looking at today, 512GB. We've already reviewed the two lower capacity drives and found they both delivered best of capacity size performance when compared to every other SSD we've tested. The 512GB shares the same on paper specifications with the 256GB. The 128GB model loses 130MB/s sequential write speed and around 10K read IOPS. Even with the reduced performance, we found the 128GB to be smoking fast.
In the two largest capacity sizes Vector is a beast of a drive delivering 550MB/s sequential read performance and 530MB/s sequential write. OCZ is still focusing on high IOPS performance and Vector delivers 100K read and 95K write IOPS.
We haven't observed a lot of price variation since Vector released a couple of months ago. The 128GB still holds a price of $159.99 at Newegg. The 256GB model moved from $289.99 to $269.99, a 7% decrease. The model we're looking at today, Vector 512GB is still $569.99 at Newegg. Certainly the 512GB model would look a lot more attractive at $1 per GB, but with Vector being the one of the fastest drives on the market today, there isn't a compelling reason for OCZ to reel in the price. We already have a few drives in hand that launch at CES 2013 and nothing from that stack is ready to take on Vector for the performance crown.
OCZ ships Vector with a five year warranty, desktop adapter bracket, screws and Acronis True Image data migration software.
