OCZ ARC 100 240GB Solid State Drive Review

We have seen a lot of value-oriented solid state drives come out lately. Crucial had their MX100, Samsung had the 840 EVO and now it is OCZ’s turn. The drive we are taking a look at today is the ARC 100 and at its current price at my favorite online retailer the drive sits at $0.44 per GB. As many of you know Toshiba took over OCZ and while back and with that everything inside this drive is owned by OCZ / Toshiba. Powering the drive you have the Barefoot 3 M10 controller and Toshiba A19nm NAND flash. That combination gives you sequential read and write speeds of 480 MB/s and 430 MB/s respectively for the 240 GB version we are testing today. Let’s jump in!

Special thanks to OCZ for providing us with the ARC 100 240 GB Solid State Drive to review.

Packaging
The ARC 100 comes in a bright blue box, something I guess we should start to expect from OCZ, or rather OCZ Storage Solutions now. On the front of the box there is a photo of the drive and it lets us know we have the 240 GB version.

On the back there is a list of features and some other information about the drive.

Opening the box up inside we find the drive and a small installation guide. No more 3.5-inch to 2.5-inch drive adapters or even I heart my SSD stickers.
