    Page 4 says higher is better but I thought the less seconds waiting was better o.O or am I missing something that normal hard drives are better?

    And you are correct.

    Damn everyone beat me to the page 4 thing haha.

    Another thought though; its really strange that in all the synthetic benchmarks the new vector 150 does very well, much better than the 840 evo in a lot of them. In the real world tests it did.. average though.

    Shows how you cannot really trust the synthetic benchmarks.

    I really think OCZ has lost its way. Once the pioneers of SSDs, now the runner up.

    MSRP is always higher. We will see the real price when it hits online stores.

    MSRP is always higher? I can tell you haven't been shopping for an R9 290x
     
  7. As an OCZ drive owner and a stock owner, I wonder: what happens to that 5 year warranty when the company goes bankrupt sometime this year?

    bankrupt?

    Is that a projection or do you know something I don't?

    I have a OCZ Vertex 3 120gb and a Samsung 840 Pro 512. The Samsung is in my desktop and the OCZ is in my laptop, both perform very well and I used to think OCZ was the best. In my book though, I would take a samsung anyday at this point, the price to performance and the just solid feeling (no pun intended) of the drives in action feels the best. I wish OCZ could really make some more strides forward again.
