The Vertex 450 looks to be a worthy successor to the Vertex 4, offering better performance, reliability and pricing. OCZ has been busy with their SSD product lines and later this year we can expect updated Vector 150 models along with the Vector PCIe series.

The key comparisons to make with the Vertex 450 are the drive it replaces, the Vertex 4, and the drive that it's priced to compete against, which is currently the Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256GB. With respect to the first, improvements are sadly not...
