SSDs have become a vital part in building a computer today whether it is a desktop or laptop. Having an SSD boot drive makes a computer significantly faster, consume less power and make the machine more efficient overall.

OCZ has chosen four of the LSI SandForce SF-2282 controllers and it uses the same Toshiba 19nm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) Flash as the Vector 150 and Vertex 460 SSD, all in a rather compact PCIe form.
What was once ultra-expensive and rare quickly becomes cheap and common in the personal computer market. Storage is possibly the best example of this. Indeed, the storage market has changed quite a bit in the 17 years I have been a computer enthusiast. Perhaps the biggest change has been the introduction of solid state drives. This formally rare and expensive technology is now common and inexpensive enough for most consumers to enjoy.
