It can be used to measure the drive's performance, scan for errors, check the health status (S.M.A.R.T.), securely erase all data and much more." The latest version of the benchmark added temperature statistics and improved support for SSDs, among a few other updates and fixes.

The OCZ Vector performed very well in the HD Tune benchmark. It put up the best write score in the sequential test and the highest burst rate. It was also amongst the fastest drive in terms of access time.

Nice review. That 128GB is more than enough for me. I'm running an older OCZ SSD, forgot what the name was. It's 64GB and I basically just use it for the Windows partition and various apps, like Firefox. The shortened boot times alone were worth it, and $150 for a little more room isn't bad at all.

We really dig this drive. It will be interesting to see how it shakes out in the market. I'm willing to bet, price-wise it will become even more attractive in the months ahead.

Wow, the benchmarks are rather impressive. I'm just happy to see that were getting a more level playing field among all manufacturers. There for a while it looked like intel was going to a pull ahead, then Samsung stepped up, and since then it's been bouncing all over. Now we just need the prices to keep falling and we'll all be happy!
