The solid state drive market is a extremely competitive right now. We’ve seen many low-cost drives that have great performance and features. OCZ has recently launched their Trion 100 series of solid state drives ranging from 120 GB – 980 GB capacities. This drive is the first from OCZ that uses all of 100% Toshiba IP. Other OCZ drives since Toshiba’s acquisition have made us of Toshiba NAND, but the Trion 100 also uses Toshiba’s new controller. You could call this a Toshiba drive that is branded OCZ as Toshiba really does not sell consumer-based drives. The 480 GB version of the Trion 100 that we are reviewing today has sequential read and write speeds of 550 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. Since this is an OCZ drive you also get a 3-year ShieldPlus warranty. Let’s check out this drive and see what it can do!
Special thanks to OCZ for providing us with the Trion 100 480GB Solid State Drive to review.
The Trion 100 comes in a white box with a photo of the drive on the front and a small sticker on the back that lets us know the capacity, which in our case is 480GB.
On the back of the box there is a listing of features and more information on the drive.
Opening up the box we simply have the Trion 100 solid state drive and a user’s guide.
