OCZ Trion 150 480GB Solid State Drive Review

Back in January at CES OCZ introduced their Trion 150 solid state drive and now the drives are finally making it to market. OCZ’s Trion line of solid state drives are aimed at consumers who are looking for an affordable solution to upgrade their hard drives in their PC or laptop. The Trion 150 is of course the successor to the Trion 100, which we took a look at this past year. The Trion 150 features a rather mysterious Toshiba controller which is backed up by Toshiba 15nm TLC NAND. OCZ will be offering this drive in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB versions. Today we will be taking a look at the 480GB which features max read and write speeds of 550 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. Let’s get this drive in our test system and see what it can do!

Special thanks to OCZ for providing us with the Trion 150 480GB solid state drive to review.


The Trion 150 comes in OCZ’s typical retail packaging for their solid state drives. On the front there is a photo of the drive and it lets us know the capacity, which in our case is 480GB.

Flipping around to the back there is some information about the drive and a list of features. We can see that OCZ is backing this drive with a 3-year warranty.

Getting everything out of the box we have the Trion 150 drive and an installation manual. No adapter, software, or even an OCZ sticker like we’ve seen in the past.
