That is still a bit expensive. Check the Newegg sales. Get the daily feed from Newegg. And they have free shipping too.

Make sure you have a 6GB port on your mobo. Else you cannot take advantage of the full speed of the Vector. In that case a cheaper SSD would do.

My laptop doesn't have 6GB port, but if I want to use it in another computer in the future, that is why I was going to buy it. With the price being nearly $300 quite high.

I am not sure whether that is a good strategy. The SSD prices drop daily and the day you want to move the Vector to another system, the price may be a lot lower. It might be better if you bought a cheaper 3GB SSD for the laptop now and revisited the Vector question later. -- At least something to consider.

Hum the cheapest 256 I can get out here is the SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB @ $185 and the Samsung 840 Series 250GB @ $185 followed closely by the SanDisk Extreme Solid State Drive 240GB @ $219 the rest are all pushing $260 or thereabouts so I don't know about the falling prices though mind mind you our dollar has slumped

I have used the 120GB SanDisk Extreme and it is not bad the OCZ my supplier is not carrying them anymore so have no comparison. I thought they were not as good as they were cracked up to be??

What do you mean revisited the Vector later, buy a faster Vector layer and buy a slower SSD for the laptop, today ?

It will depend on the timeframe. If you want to use the Vector in a 6GB system one or two years from now, then I would not buy it today because by that time it will be cheaper and there will be other options. The laptop with a 3GB bus could very well live with a cheaper SSD. This is a good option. I own a Mushkin SSD and it works great.

Is the 840 Pro still king of the hill or has the Vector overthrown the established ruler?

Six of one, half dozen of the other. You won't be able to tell a nickels worth of difference between them. I would buy whichever one you can get for the best deal to be honest.
