5 out of 5 eggsDoes it's job

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I never experienced SSD speed until I decided to buy this during the Black Friday sales, it's been about a month and I've been liking the snappiness and quicker boot times. The drive's still in good shape

Cons: none for now

5 out of 5 eggsCrazy Fast!

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This thing is crazy fast. I put this in a i5 4690k build. Windows loads in less than 10 seconds. Planetside 2 which took almost 5 minutes on my old system loads in less than 15 seconds and that's including a second or two to select a character! I mean from double click to in-game shooting stuff... never more than 15 seconds.

Installing apps is insane! Progress bars barely have time to display before they are at 100%. Some app installs kick open command prompt windows in the background. This one app opens like 5 in a row, does some stuff, and they close automatically... it loaded and closed so fast it looked like this weird cascading animation.

I did a LOT of research going into purchasing an SSD. This one had the highest performance specs for my price point. Not disappointed!

Comes with a bracket so it fits into a 5.25 slot. Quality bracket, has the logo on it, and the screw holes are countersunk which is a nice touch.

Cons: None; the thing is just stellar.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great SSD When On Sale

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Excellent performance for a 120 GB drive
Exceptionally well constructed enclosure
Five year warranty
Endurance rated for daily Writes of 50 GBs for five years
Got it on Black Friday sale for $54.99

I have purchased several OCZ SSDs (both Vertex 460 and Vector 150 series) since Toshiba purchased the company and have found them to be reliable and excellent performers; and the 120 GB Vector 150 drive is no exception.

All Solid State drives in this capacity (120-128 GB) suffer to some degree from Write latency (slower Write speeds) when compared to the 240-256 GB and up capacities. But some perform better than others.

Using ATTO benchmarking software, I compared the OCZ 120 GB Vector 150 with a Samsung 840 Pro 128 GB drive in the area of Sequential Read and Write speeds.

The Samsung measured a Sequential Write speed of 391.953, and a Sequential Read speed of 546.845.

Using the same test, the OCZ 120 GB Vector 150 measured a Sequential Write speed of 446.227 and a Sequential Read speed of 556.663. Both drives were empty.

So at least in this test, the OCZ out performed the Samsung by a significant margin on Sequential Write, and by a small margin on Sequential Read. Is the difference noticeable? -- probably not. Nevertheless, the OCZ Vector 150 did outperform the Samsung 840 Pro in the Sequential Read/Write area.

Additionally, for laptop users, the OCZ features slightly less power consumption. In the 120-128 GB capacity, were they about the same price, I would prefer the OCZ Vector 150 to the Samsung 840 Pro (and I own several Samsung 840 Pros in various capacities).

But now that Samsung is delivering their new 850 Pro series, it is only fair to point out that their 128 GB model has considerably improved Sequential Read and Write performance -- 472.038 Write and 561.841 read (again using ATTO).

So while the OCZ 120 GB Vector 150 somewhat out performs the older Samsung 840 Pro series in this capacity, the newer Samsung 850 Pro series slightly outperforms the OCZ. Is the performance difference between these two discernible, again, probably not.

At the moment, in the 120-128 GB capacity range, the Samsung 850 Pro is the fastest consumer SSD on the market. Add to that a 10 year warranty and one of the highest Write endurance ratings in the industry (if not THE highest @ 150 TBs), nearly all other SSDs have to be purchased at a substantially lower price to make them preferable.

(Based on the five year warranty at advertised Writes of 50 GB/day, the Write endurance of the OCZ Vector 150 would figure to be somewhere in the range of 89-91 TBs -- depending on whether you figure 1 TB at 1024 GBs, or at 1000 GBs).

Cons: Lower Write endurance than the Samsung 850 Pro, and a 5 year warranty vs. 10 years for the 850 Pro.

Other Thoughts: At the time of this review, Newegg is advertising the 120 GB OCZ Vector 150 at $96.99 and the Samsung 128 GB 850 Pro at $104.99. For only $8.00 difference I would buy the Samsung. But, as previously stated, I bought the OCZ during Newegg's Black Friday sale for only $54.99 and that made it a considerably better overall value (especially since I personally will never Write 150 TBs to any SSD nor keep a particular/individual SSD -- or computer, for that matter -- for anywhere near ten years.)

Included is a 2.5" to 3.5" desktop adapter, mounting screws, and a Key number for downloading Acronis cloning software. A SATA to USB 3.0 transfer cable is not included. Packaging is attractive.

Highly recommend when on sale.

4 out of 5 eggsFast, but not as fast as I expected

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Speedy bootup.

Cons: The time spent on the Windows 7 logo screen (where the four glowing dots come together into the Microsoft logo) is just as long as with my old hard drive.

Other Thoughts: The time from the end of the logo screen to the login screen is only about 1 second. Same for the time from the end of the login screen to the desktop. Programs start automatically instead of having to wait while they put themselves in memory.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: this was a great drive that housed my primary Windows 7 OS. I knew ahead of buying this that SSD's have a short life so I kept routine backups to another drive. after a few months of ownership the drive died. Although it was too soon, I don't regret the purchase! this was a reliable drive at first, and with great read/write speeds, and even a boot time of 14 seconds! I was able to open multiple programs with ease right from a cold boot to my desktop. This met all of my expectations, but was disappointed of its demise. Luckily I kept backups, and OCZ's RMA team was more than welcome to accept my drive to its processing facility where it was destroyed and replaced with the drive I just received this morning. My OCZ Vector 128Gb was promptly replaced with an OCZ Vector 150 120Gb SSD. During this process I was assisted by OCZ's wonderful Customer Service Rep named Jeff. He helped me troubleshoot prior to RMA, and even assisted in getting things in right order.

Thanks again OCZ, this new drive is fantastic! The Vector 150 120gb is a fantastic upgrade from the earlier generation I had.

Cons: Drive failed sooner than I had hoped. Other than that everything else regarding the RMA was pleasant.

Other Thoughts: OCZ makes a solid drive, and hopefully my new Vector 150 lasts me as long as the other reviewers claim.
