I've been waiting for this and the Xbit headline is jubilant - for a good reason.

However, the hype dictated that the improvement would be substantial. It wasn't. This is just a marginal improvement on Vertex 4. The only benefit is really the price. Thanks.

I just paid 450 bloody pounds for the 528 Gb version. I've waited for an SSD through Vertex 4 and Plextor. It's my first drive =D

I'm using now. The benefits are clear compared to the old Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm. The internet downloads 2 Mb/s instead of 500, there is no lag in Firefox of launching plugins or loading more on a site, Windows starts in 15 seconds and shuts down in 4 and my processor and memory qualification (no, just the hard drive score) in Win7 rose from 5.9 to 6.8 =D

Your logic seems inconsistent. You recommend AMD products but AMD is also not doing well as a company, already putting up their Texas campus for sale. You should judge products on their merits, not a hypothetical probability of a company going out of business unless it is already in the phase of liquidation. I would give OCZ a chance. Vertex 4 was a huge improvement from Vertex 1/2/3 and this product is now the market leader other than Sammy 840 Pro.

Even a Hail Mary effort isn't like to save OCZ.

Ah excuse me but where the GAWD DAMN HELL is the Samsung 840 Pro in these reviews? Yet again another reviewer doesn't have it up there where clearly it still is the leader of fastest SSDs. Once I saw these OCZ Vector benchmarks and then sites NOT posting them with the 840 Pro (which blew all benchies away in the last 1-2 months) I started really to question WTF is going on with sites?

Edit: Other competitor sites still show the 840 Pro beating out the Vector ALTHOUGH the Vector is a good competitor so I suppose both will suit the same need but not sure I trust OCZ due to their track record from the past (although their recent firmware has largely fixed their drives from losing data).

No Samsung 840 Pro in the test??

> "So we see the Vector slow down after half its capacity if filled by continuous writing. The situation is rather unrealistic, though."

Well, continuous write speed does matter when the drive is used in an a/v capturing process, for example.
