Introduction

As technology progresses, it’s not uncommon to see new iterations of existing models hit the marketplace; evolutionary sequels, so to speak. And OCZ has had many instances of this, with their Vertex series of solid states drives a well known example. Another in the latest progression forward is the Vector SSD, an impressive drive we reviewed that featured the Indlinx Barefoot 3 controller for impressive performance.

The latest in the OCZ “enthusiast” classed series is the Vector 150, which stays true to their winning formula of performance, features, and value. So it’s no surprise the Barefoot 3 controller still lies at the heart of the SSD, though there have been a few improvements made in terms of longevity and durability. A move to different NAND flash highlights more of the changes.

Today marks the launch of the OCZ Vector 150, and we’re looking at the 240GB model. Set to retail for $240 at the price of $1/GB, it crosses into a slightly more mainstream pricing segment, while still looking to offer enthusiast-classed performance.

Let’s take a closer look at the OCZ Vector 150 240GB and see how the revolution continues.
