Review: Barefoot 3 controller at its best

 

The OCZ Vector comes packed in a rather simple but quite informative box that, in addition to the actual Vector SSD also includes a 3.5-inch SSD adapter for desktops, “I love my SSD” sticker and Acronis True Image HD cloning software activation key.

Earlier this year we had a chance to check out Corsair’s Neutron GTX flagship SSD and since we are currently working on a more comprehensive SSD review, the Corsair was reviewed the EVGA X79 FTW motherboard, a temporary solution since we are switching to a Z77-based system and a review that will include few other high-end SSDs as well as some more tests.

The Vector 256GB SSD was for that actually reviewed on Shuttle’s XPC system, kindly provided by Shuttle Europe, that is based on the Z77-chipset which proved as a decent one and gave comparable results.

Of course, all results will be updated and included with the upcoming full review with all the other SSDs and for now we just wanted to see how it performs against Corsair’s Neutron GTX 240GB SSD.
