OCZ is one of the earliest adopters of SSD technology, and their products have always been at the forefront of technology. After all the financial irregularities we've seen in 2012, combined with their falling stock price, it's great to see OCZ alive and kicking, and working on new products. Their latest OCZ Vector is based on the new Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller: It is, given Indilinx was acquired by OCZ in 2011, the first OCZ controller with 100% in-house technology.

The OCZ Vertex 450 uses 20 nanometer NAND flash with the Barefoot 3 connected to a SATA 6 Gbps interface. It replaces the aging Vertex 4 built on a Marvell controller.

OCZ offers the Vertex 450 in capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB; their Indilinx M10 controller doesn't use overprovisioning, which leaves more space for your data.
