This hit me like a ton of bricks, I never saw it coming, the most well kept secret in the industry. I was awaiting the Vertex 5.
Excellent review Wendy, I have a few points that bother me about this new offering from OCZ. The Vector has a 5 Year warrantee, the Vertex 4.50 has a 3 Year warrantee. They are both priced within a few dollars of each other
The OCZ Vertex 450 is available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities with MSRP pricing set at $129.99, $234.99 and $499.99, respectively. The Vertex 450 carries a three year warranty with the SSD rated for 20GB/day host writes under typical client workloads.
From your review I have learned they both have same controller and different firmware. The speeds are slower than the Vector ( not much) but slower none the less. I am only going by what I have read, I do not have this SSD to test. So from first view, its seem you lose 2 years warrantee and pay the same price as the Vector, ( and I love my Vector) so it will take either a lower price or a faster drive to make me consider this with the price point being relatively the same.
Again congrats on another great Myce.com SSD review. :flower:
