Welcome to day two of TR's 12 days of Christmas giveaways, gerbils. Today, we're giving away one of OCZ's Vector 180 480GB SSDs. Behold:
This high-end drive offers performance figures of 550 MB/s sequential reads and 530 MB/s sequential writes. Random I/O rates peak at 100k IOPS for reads and 95k IOPS for writes. The Vector 180 can also encrypt the data onboard with a 256-bit AES algorithm. OCZ backs each Vector 180 with a five-year ShieldPlus warranty, too. This program offers cross-shipment of replacement hardware, and owners only need the serial number of their eligible drive to initiate a claim. This drive retails for $219.99 on Newegg right now.
To enter this giveaway, complete the following steps:
You only need to enter once to be eligible to win for the entire 12 days of giveaways. If you have already entered, please do not submit another entry.
Rules and regulations
Sorry, but this contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only (except Quebec).
We will be accepting entries for this giveaway throughout the 12 days this contest runs, until the time we announce the final winner on December 25, 2015. We'll choose a winner each day in a random drawing from all eligible entries. The winner will be announced on the site each day of the contest, and they'll also be notified through email. The winner must claim their prize within 72 hours, or they will forfeit it, and we will draw a new winner.
Only one entry is permitted (or required) per person, household, or e-mail address. Please don't try to game the system by entering your girlfriend, wife, kids or pets. We'll probably disqualify you if you do.
You must include your full name, a valid email address, and a physical shipping address with your entry. Only the winner's name will be announced on the site. We will not share your address or other personal information with our sponsors or anyone else. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. TR reserves the right to disqualify entries that appear to be attempts to game the system or circumvent the rules in any way.
The staff of The Tech Report and their immediate families may not enter the giveaway and are not eligible to win.
No purchase is necessary. This giveaway is void where prohibited by law. TR and our sponsors are not responsible for any taxes on the prize, damage in shipping, damage caused by using the prize with other products, or health issues such as repetitive strain injury, eye strain, or chemical addictions that may result from prolonged use of the prize. We may answer questions and offer clarifications of the rules in this post's comments thread.
