    This looks awesome and should be if OCZ is able to pull its act together, the dedicated randomizer which is necessary for high security encryption could mean it could see some use in the enterprise market, maybe under a different branding with different NAND flash. The Sata 3 interface will mean nothing, SSDs are all about access times and if you want high throughput then you go for RAID. I also like the fact they are going after sustained write speeds rather than random, I hope they hold up with large queue depths.

    Awesome news imo, never owned an OCZ SSD but I can appreciate good competition which helps prices. Still think I'm gonna get a Samsung 840 for xmas (my present to myself ).

    The Samsung 840 Pro has a 5 year Warranty which is worth alot for me and the price has dropped in the past few days to £197.10 Inc VAT (scan.co.uk) which is nearly a tenner off since last week

    Re: News - The OCZ Vector SSD, the first 100pc in-house drive

    I hate to bring it up again, but - what's with pc? Is the % button broken? The first 100pc in-house drive means something totally different to the first 100% in-house drive, especially on a computer (PC) forum. I was expecting a drive that could boot up to 100 PCs simultaneously within a building!

    Sounds great, almost as fast as the 840 Pro, let's hope it is a bit cheaper.

    Something we noted in the press release was that OCZ was finally willing to nail-down just what it meant by its 5 year warranty, which is also present on the Vector. Simply put it's:

    5 years or 36.5TB writes, whichever comes first.

    This works out at 20GB per day for 5 years and likely looks to cover a worst-case scenario.

    Our first thoughts were, Apple iPhone-rectangle-patent-infringement lawsuit


    Should be interesting to see how this compares to the competition, it's nice they're adding another controller to the mix but OCZ have some way to go to gain the sort of reputation the competition have. Hopefully this performs well, is reliable, and their support improves.

    Covering it nicely as a consumer drive but not if you mis-apply one in your high load database server... seems fair to me.

    The sustained performance angle is ripped right out of Intel's marketing for the DC S3700 SSD for datacentre, the one replacing the 710. That has some good benchmark results so lets see if OCZ can do the same.

    So price seems to be slightly above the 840 Pro, that is disappointing.

    That's not a great price point unless performance is stellar IMHO, considering their bruised reputation.

    Performance is very good and similar to the 840 Pro, but I certainly wouldn't want to be paying more for OCZ over Samsung.

    Give it a month or two, not many things end up in etailers at their RRP...
