"Certainly cheaper drives can be had with many well below the $1/GB mark, but none of those will offer the performance of the Vector Series. Actually very few drives available will. Give OCZ's new strategy, we don't expect to see a more value oriented version sooner than later so if this drive intrigues you (as well it should) don't wait for its little brother. Overall, the Vector Series drive is quite impressive and with OCZ having exclusive rights to the controller and fabrication, it places them in very select company. We've already said on several occasions that we expect to start to see attrition in the SSD market starting with those that are simply offering re-branded drives and we expect that OCZ won't be one of the companies without a seat when the music stops."
I'd like to see more reviews from sources that are a bit further from the company. So far the drive looks nice but really a good price to performance comparison has to be done. yea.. I might just do it.
Not sure about that. Have to remember the talk of TLC came from Ryan. He also said Vector would be 20nm and it's 25nm MLC. That said, it's possible they transition to 20nm when it becomes more readily available. TLC is destined to be what consumers use. If the consumer market isn't a focus for OCZ, they may not make the jump to TLC. It'd be a shame though. They seem to have some good technology when it comes to NAND endurance.
After reading the review I'd say Vector leaves a better impression than Vertex 4. They may even update the FW in a few weeks to give it even a bigger performance boost, who knows.
