    Nice review as always Olin.
    Just one thing…
    How does it compare to a samsung SSD?
    Or did I miss that part?

    1. Olin Coles

      Unfortunately we do not have a Samsung SSD to compare against because our requests have not been answered. However, for comparison purposes, the Samsung 840 Pro uses 21nm NAND whereas Vector 150 uses 19nm NAND flash. Vector 150 reads at 550 MB/s and writes at 530 while Samsung 840 Pro reads at 540 and writes at 520 MB/s. Both read at 100K IOPS and offer a five-year warranty, but Vector 150 features 50 GB/day endurance compared to 40 GB/day for Samsung 840 Pro. I hope this helps!

    Thank you.

    I guess Samsung don’t need the reviews at this point in time.

    These are awfully close spec wise. Now to wait it out for reliability info.
