OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Review

We perform our power consumption test by installing two digital USB multimeters working as ammeters on the +5V and +12V power lines connected to the drives, checking their current drain at idle and while stressed.

We hit a milestone today; the Vector is the first SSD product we have ever tested which consumes exactly as much energy as the manufacturer claims it does. With a power draw of 0.9W while idling and 2.27W under load, the Vector lands in the middle of our energy consumption charts. The difference between it and other product however is small and translates to at best a few minutes difference over a battery life span of 5+ hours.
