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!
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., a committed technology leader, announces the availability of the new Trion 150 SSD series, an affordable performance upgrade for mainstream notebooks and desktops. Built with the Toshiba’s 15 nm Triple-Level Cell (TLC) NAND flash technology from Toshiba, the Trion 150 series continues to deliver the superior balance of reliability, endurance and value of its predecessor, Trion 100, with increased real world performance.
This year at CES OCZ was showing off their newly announced RevoDrive 400 NVMe PCI-Express solid state drive. Since OCZ is a Toshiba-owned company they are taking advantage of Toshiba’s NVMe controller technology with the new RevoDrive 400.
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!
OCZ has sent us their latest 2.5-inch solid state drive, the Vector 180. This new drive still uses the aging Barefoot 3 controller, but OCZ has teamed it with the latest Toshiba A19nm MLC NAND. This drive is all about reliability and features OCZ’s implementation of power loss protection, which they are calling Power Failure Management Plus (PFM+). PFM+ is not full power loss protection, but will protect data-at-rest. So PFM+ will protect data that has been already been written to the NAND. This helps protect the mapping table and reduces the risk of ‘bricking’ the drive. The 480GB version of the drive that we are reviewing today has sequential read and write speeds of 550 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. OCZ also backs this drive with their new ShieldPlus 5-year warranty. Let’s take a look!
OCZ Storage Solutions, a Toshiba Group Company and the most awarded solid state drive (SSD) brand of all time, today announced the release of the next generation Vector 180 SSD series along with the all-new SSD Guru storage management solution.
OCZ unveiled their latest enthusiast solid state drive, the Vector 180 at CES 2015. The drive is based of OCZ’s own Barefoot 3 M00 controller and features the latest Toshiba A19 MLC NAND flash.
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 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!
Today we are taking a look at the most recent revision the RevoDrive 350. Available in capacities ranging from 240 GB – 960 GB this PCI-Express solid state drive boasts sequential read and write speeds of 1800 MB/s and 1700 MB/s respectively. OCZ is labeling the RevoDrive 350 as a Workstation product and given its performance it will set you back much more than your typical solid state drive.
