Vault and Ohio are both sold through the same marketplace and are therefore direct competitors. That is certainly the case since both themes can be used for the construction of very nicely looking webshops. Vault vs Ohio, which is the better theme? We start with Ohio which does not mean it would be better.
The Ohio Theme
The Ohio theme is still very new compared to other themes in the top sales on the Themeforest marketplace. Where most top themes came out between 2013 and 2015 is Ohio from the beginning of 2020. So the theme made advances very quickly, which is due to a number of points, we will come back to that in a moment.
Ohio Theme's Rating
A rating of 4.85 out of 5 can measure itself with the rating of the best themes on Themeforest. Ohio not only has a good rating but also good sales figures for a fairly new theme. The theme will certainly rise even further, they do a lot of good.
Ohio's Page Builders
Look, here we immediately have something that the builders of the theme do very well. They don’t come with a sloppy own page builder but use 2 very reputable page builders in Elementor and WP-Bakery. As a professional web designer I prefer to work with the best page builders out there and not always with someone else I don’t know by heart. I assume others think the same.
Fast loading Times
In addition to very cleanly written code, incredibly fast loading times are a must for themes these days. The fastest theme I know is Astra, but nowadays all top-selling themes are very fast. The Ohio theme scores very well in this area and can compete with the best.
In order to quickly display content in browsers also on mobile layouts, image sets must be prepared so as not to have to show oversized images. Ohio does all this perfectly.
Webshops with Ohio Theme
Also a must nowadays if you offer a theme, is that it works perfectly with the Woocommerce plugin to be able to build shops with it. In addition, buyers of Woo-Themes like to see beautiful extra features for shops such as Ajax Cart, Swatches, a nicely working Currency Switcher, Sticky Products and more. With Ohio you are in the right place in this regard, the theme gives very good thought to the shopping functions and has it all.
Ohio Theme and Blogging
The Ohio Theme also allows one to build great blogs. We are slowly finding out that Ohio is a fast riser because the theme is very all-round and has all the important things in it in a cool way.
Ohio theme review: Demos
By its own admission, Ohio Theme has 50+ full site demos as well as many pre-built sections that you can use anywhere on your site.
The combined number of widgets or elements for Elementor and WP-Bakery are over 325. This includes standard elements and custom/new ones by Ohio/Figma.
Menu-Styles for Ohio
Ohio has ready-made menus that you can set up in your website with 1 click. Further adjustments can then be made, but this is usually not necessary. So the Ohio theme has its own header builder shines. The strange thing is that it is in Elementor, the page builder that uses the theme. At least they don’t advertise it.
Ohio is not very extensive for portfolios, but it has not been forgotten either. I would definitely use a different theme for a portfolio site but Ohio can be used if you are not too demanding.
Font Styles in Ohio Theme
Something that is really well arranged in this theme are the font styles. You can use virtually all Google, Adobe and other fonts in your websites without having to upload anything.
Ohio Theme Review Conclusion
The Ohio Theme is a complete theme, exactly what we thought from the start in this review based on the beautiful rating. The 2 page builders in it are very good, and the theme also offers everything to create any type of website. The theme will certainly be improved in upgrades for years to come. Ohio is definitely recommended, although there are much better themes of course.
Let’s continue this Ohio vs Vault comparison with the Vault Theme.
The Vault Theme
I start writing this Vault review with a lot of enthusiasm. This is a very interesting theme because it is rising very fast in the rankings and offers at least 1 very special feature that I have not seen with any other theme, because it comes with Elementor Pro. Vault came on the market in October 2022, it is a brand new theme but is already selling well, this will be partly due to the very low sales price that will unfortunately increase later.
Vault’s rating isn’t spectacular at 4.5 out of 5, but only 8 people have rated it. Who knows, the competitor may have gotten a bad rating from them to stop the theme from progressing. Let’s take a closer look at Vault and we’ll soon know what we’re dealing with here.
Let's start with Elementor Pro
I already talked about it in the beginning, this is the first theme that Elementor Pro has in it, and so it’s free. Besides the DiviBuilder, Elementor Pro is my favorite page builder. Everything works flawlessly and quickly and it offers a very stable structure for your pages on all devices. Elementor Pro already offers so much that the further qualities of the theme hardly matter anymore, but let’s see what else Vault has. For example, some wonderful demos wouldn’t go amiss.
Vault Theme with 230+ Elementor Widgets
With so many widgets you don’t need plugins anymore except for very specific things sometimes. In any case, no plugins in terms of design. I still don’t understand how some people haven’t given this a top rating.
Template Library with Vault Theme
These are not the demo websites I’m looking for but more than 1000 templates that you can use anywhere on your site. These are small blocks of content such as a price list that websites often use. This is very handy and clear. I have never come across this plugin in any other theme.
50+ Starter Sites
I found them. The Vault theme comes with 50+ starter sites in all kinds of niches as the screenshot shows. A great number for a theme that has just come out. As far as this review is concerned, I am going to tell you that this is a really great theme that will certainly increase further and you can still have it for a bargain price.
Their inner pages
All demos sites have all standard pages such as blog, contact, portfolio, about us and the rest.
More Remarkable Stuff
The theme has of course many more such as Adobe fonts, Rollback function, Banners and Pop-Ups, White Lable, Formbuilder.
Vault Theme Review Conclusion
I think I have already indicated a few times during this review for Vault that this theme is one of the best for me that can be found on Themeforest. There are much better themes, but that is a different story and not on Themeforest. If the Vault theme has piqued your interest, read on on their own site.
Ohio vs Vault Conclusion
I like Vault better because of the better Page Builder. But, these themes want to see a separate expensive license for every website you want to build with them. This will quickly cost you a lot of money. You are better off with Astra or Divi that can be used on an unlimited sites and are also even better and more stable themes.
