OCZ Technology Vector 150 120GB SSD Review

OCZ Vector 150 120GB SSD




Vector 150 has nearly the same package as the original Vector, just tack on the 150 at the end of the product name.






We dubbed the accessory package as 'the OCZ standard' a few years ago. You get a desktop adapter bracket, mounting screws, Acronis software key, paper manuals and a sticker.




Here we get our first look at the new Vector 150 120GB model. Again, not much has changed on the outside.






Vector 150 has a 7mm z-height, so it will work in the latest ultrabooks designed for the new low height standard. The mounting points are the same so the drive will also fit in traditional notebooks.




The desktop adapter bracket offsets the drive to the left making cable management easier when installing more than one drive in a system.




OCZ used a thermal pad on the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller.




The 120GB model uses the same NAND flash we found on the 240GB model, there is just half the number of packages.






The Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller is the same used on the original Vector, M00 revision.




The buffer uses Micron DDR3-1600 DRAM set to just 1.35v. There are two packages, one on each side.




The big change is the 19nm Toshiba Toggle flash on Vector 150. The original Vector shipped with 25nm Micron flash.
