ocz vector is at least in par w/ Samsung Pro series, if not better. Very good price!
Really? Performance-wise...possible. But reliability....OCZ doesn't seem to be too great in this department. I have a few OCZ products and really want to like their stuff, but their SSD's and power supplies just have too high of a failure rate for my liking. I've already lost 1 OCZ power supply that ended up taking out my motherboard along with it. Thankfully both were still under warranty. I will give OCZ credit that their customer service/RMA crew is very efficient...but it's probably because they get a lot of "practice".
I believe I've found the solution to obesity in America. Hemispherectomy....no one uses it anyway.
For this price, I'd rather get a Samsung 840 pro
If you open the case of OCZ's SSD, you can see the NAND chips are labeled with OCZ logo, not Samsung, Intel, Toshiba, or etc. OCZ doesn't make NAND, but why they label the chip with their logo? If you google it, you will find the answer.
The Vector gets the so-damn-high speed because it use some space of itself as cache. So if more than 50% of the drive's capacity is used, sometime the write speed is less than 100mb/s
Temporarily. Dropping below the 50% mark (and staying there) triggers a reorganization, which can severely impact write speed for a few minutes. Once it's done, speed returns to high levels, though not as high as before. My drive's at nearly 70% capacity, and except for a brief slowdown once it reorganized and kicked out of performance mode, it's nearly as fast as when it hardly had anything on it. Which is to say, still very fast. I have it on a Mac currently, that takes two and a half seconds from Apple logo to desktop. That's a fraction of a second slower than before. When I run apps that thrash the disk a lot I don't notice any speed difference at all, though I'm sure there could be a slight one.
