OCZ Vector 256GB Features:

Goundbreaking Performance

  • Vector delivers the industry's fastest performance. Rated for 100,000 random read and 95,000 random write IOPS to deliver ultimate responsiveness and a better overall computing and workstation experience than any other storage solution.    
  • Vector redefines reliability and offers a premium SSD solution designed from the ground up for enhanced stability, quality, and durability.    
  • Get consistently faster sustained speeds with the complete spectrum of file types and sizes, including both compressible and incompressible data for balanced, long-lasting performance like no other drive out there.    
  • Built to last, Vector maximizes drive life with low write amplification, efficient garbage collection, and an advanced suite of NAND flash management to provide years of hard drive-humiliating performance that is second to none.

Groundbreaking Technology

  • User Friendly:  All Vector SSDs come bundled with a 3.5-inch desktop adapter bracket, and include an Acronis® True ImageTM cloning software registration key with your purchase to easily transfer data from your old hard drive.
  • More is More: Advanced controller technology allows Vector to excel in high performance and deliver superior endurance without compression or loss of usable capacity. That means more space and more speed from your Vector SSD.
  • Enduring Quality: Vector features OCZ's most stringent hardware and firmware validation cycle to date and rated for 20GB of host writes per day to meet the demands of high-end workstation systems.
  • Thin is In: With a sleek 7mm housing, Vector's slim z-height ensures compatibility with the latest thinner form factor notebooks. Alloy casing lends style that matches your taste for modern storage.       

SSD Advantage

  • Faster Performance for Cost-Effectiveness: SSDs have 100x greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.
  • Because many HDDs are needed to achieve the same performance, SSDs offer greater cost effectiveness for IOPS per dollar.
  • Greater Durability: The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards are shock resistant up to 1500g, unlike HDDs with various moving parts.
  • Less Power, Silent Operation:  SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard drives, delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment. With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment.
