The first mSATA-based SSDs we reviewed wowed us with diminutive dimensions, but not as much with performance. Today's best efforts are a lot more like their desktop equivalents, though. We round up 10 models between 64 and 256 GB and nail down a winner.
These SSDs are the first to be delivered under the new OCZ and uses the company's own in-house controller.
Less than two years after acquiring Indilinx for $32 million in stock, OCZ is ready to introduce its first SSD based on controller technology developed in-house. Can its new Barefoot 3 propel the 256 GB Vector we're testing into a performance victory?
In an unexpected turn of events, Ryan Petersen steps down as CEO of OCZ Technology. EVP Alex Mei appointed as Interim CEO.
OCZ is making a lot of waves these days. In its CQ2 conference call, the company confirmed that its Barefoot controller should be returning in sample form from the contract fab shortly.
In our recent look at the Vertex 4 SSD equipped with firmware 1.4, we found that the 128 GB drive's write performance depended heavily on available capacity. OCZ disagreed, but then quickly rolled out firmware 1.5. So, we're back to test the new build.

Back in April, we published one of the first reviews of OCZ's Vertex 4. In those three months, the company has issued three firmware updates, with a fourth reportedly in the pipeline. We take another look at the drive using its latest software.
As hard drive prices remain high since the Thailand floods of 2011, the SSD prices have taken a different trend, a much appreciated downward trend in prices.
