In this Twitter weekly giveaway we have teamed up with OCZ to giveaway a blazing fast solid state drive. We're talking about the Vector 256GB SSD. One lucky winner will get to take home this shiny new boxed SSD, and take your PC to new performance levels.


In our review of the Vector 256GB, our consumer storage editor Chris Ramseyer, had the following to say about the drive:

"There are two things that keep us from calling Vector the fastest consumer SSD in the world, though. The first is the 350MB/s single request read speed that can limit your file transfers when moving data around. The second is storage mode on the write side. Depending on what you do and how full you run your OS drive either or both could slow down your performance. If you run into these issues you'll be doing something very focused, transferring large amounts of sequential data or using your drive near capacity. It's a bit like saying SandForce slows down when working with incompressible data. These are all targeted issues and most of us really won't notice them. If you are coming from a mechanical drive or SATA II SSD, you won't even care because it's still a magnitude faster than what you had before."
