Product on Review: Vector 180 SSD (240GB)
Manufacturer & Sponsor: OCZ Storage Solutions
Street Price: £110 GBP / $150 USD
One of the early powerhouses of the consumer SSD market, California-based OCZ was acquired by Japanese giant Toshiba Group in 2014. Since then the company has gone from strength-to-strength, capitalising on technological improvements and economies of scale in the NAND market to create a range of consumer and enterprise SSD products which match any in scope. We’ve seen some solid designs since the takeover and this comes as no surprise since there is now direct access to premium, cutting-edge components and technologies courtesy of the Japanese multinational.
Today we’re looking at OCZ’s most recent release: the Vector 180 solid state drive. Vector 180 is designed primarily for the enthusiast, a segment of the market which is one of the most high-profile in their SSD portfolio. Our drive is also driven by a Barefoot 3 M00 controller and utilises 19nm MLC NAND flash, both of which promise to deliver consistent performance in a range of scenarios. OCZ are also keen to press a new feature called Power Failure Management Plus – presenting a new level of reliability!
