240GB   —

The 240GB OCZ ARC has a solid performance profile with particularly strong 4K speeds. The ARC is positioned below both OCZ's enthusiast Vector 150 and the mainstream Vertex 460 but based on hardware specs there is very little separating the drives (newer NAND on the ARC). Comparing the Vertex 460 and ARC shows that the ARC lags particularly in terms of sequential write speed but the overall difference in effective speed is marginal. The broad performance equivalence coupled with the fact that the Vertex 460 is available at the same price point makes the 240GB ARC somewhat redundant for the time being. Given that the ARC is relatively new, prices are likely to drop significantly over the coming months at which point the ARC may make more sense. [Sep '14 SSDrivePro]
