it looks pretty close to me ... and with best price on the pro being $225 AC today and being a fp slickdeal yesterday @ $200 Im saying this is slick @ a 7% discount yo yesterdays fp !!
im liking this drive.
With the Vector, OCZ has built a price and performance competitor to Samsung's SSD 840 Pro, which previously remained peerless at the top of our charts. For a company that just weeks ago was considered down and out for the count, this is beyond impressive. Samsung has emerged as one of the strongest players in the consumer SSD space, and OCZ appears ready to challenge it. In our tests, Samsung typically enjoys better peak performance, but OCZ's Vector appears to have the advantage when it comes to worst case performance and IO consistency. The latter tend to be more valuable in improving overall user experience in my opinion.
I think the dislike is simply because it is OCZ not necessarily based on the price/performance of this particular drive
Yep, I guess ocz has a really bad rep, the drive does have a 5 year warranty on it .. .but as some comments on anatech says, if they're not around in a couple of years its worthless. This is ocz's last salvo ... and I think I read they are looking to put out some tlc drives to challenge the 840 non pro as well ... these prices are falling, expect to buy a 500gb drive at this price in the coming months.....
great price for a great drive

If the price is low, but the product is junk, it's not a deal.
Currently thumbs downing all >$0.33/gig Samsung TLC 840 SSD "deals" and dual core "MBP" deals.
Not sure where the TD's come from, but this is a good buy IMO. Although I went a different route (because of the price at the time), this is a good deal if you are looking for one of the better performing drives on the market. I understand that some will NEVER trust OCZ, but that does not make this a TD deal.
If you use the Far Cry DVD as a Frisbee, the ~ $50 savings makes this a good deal if you are in the market for this kind of drive. If not, compare with the Samsung 840 Pro or other similar performing drives.
I understand that everyone's idea of a deal is different, though. I have given the TD on deals that others really like. I just thought I would give my input for someone else who does not know about the drive and historical pricing of it. Not fair to compare this to the Samsung 840 non-pro version and give this a thumbs down. They are two completely different animals. Whereas on may not suit your needs, the other is ideal for a given use. Despite the closed-minded mentality of some, each of these drives has something to offer for a given set of circumstances.
