From the Manufacturer
Delivering exceptional I/O performance plus enhanced reliability and endurance, groundbreaking Vector Series SSD from OCZ is designed to empower your laptop or desktop to be all it can be.
With OCZ's next-generation Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller, the Vector SSD consistently delivers superior sustained performance over time regardless of whether the data streams are in compressed or uncompressed formats. As a result, the groundbreaking Vector provides faster file transfers and boot-ups, and a quicker, more responsive storage experience.
This 2.5-inch SSD (model VTR1-25SAT3-256G) has a 256 GB capacity, which offers a sequential read bandwidth of up to 550 MB/s, sequential write bandwidth of up to 530 MB/s, random read performance of up to 100,000 IOPS, and random write performance of up to 95,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second).
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.
- Advanced suite of NAND flash management keeps your drive at higher sustained performance over the long term for maximum endurance.
- Excels in both incompressible and compressible data types such as multimedia, encrypted data, ZIP files, and software.
- Cutting-edge controller technology delivers maximum performance and unmatched endurance without compression or loss of usable capacity, rated for 20 GB/day of host writes for 5 years (typical client workloads).
- Sleek alloy housing offers slimmer 7mm z-height for compatibility with the latest thinner form factor notebooks.
- Bundled with a 3.5-inch desktop adapter bracket and an Acronis True Image cloning software registration key (Windows compatible) to easily transfer data from your old hard drive.

The SSD Advantage
Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.
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.
The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards are shock resistant up to 1500g, unlike HDDs with various moving parts.
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.
