OCZ announced the Trion 100, a new lineup of cost-effective SSD for first-time users graduating from HDDs, and for those who want fast read-intensive drives to replace storage HDDs in their systems. Some extremely low price-per-gigabyte figures build their case. The drive features 19 nm TLC NAND flash chips made by Toshiba, driven by a controller also made by Toshiba. This controller features an SLC-caching tech that deals with a small portion of the TLC NAND flash as SLC (by storing just one bit per cell), which has the maximum sequential transfer performance. The controller juggles hot-data in and out of this portion from the rest of the TLC area. Other controller features include DEVSLEEP mode support. In this mode, the drive draws just 6 mW of power. Other essentials such as TRIM and NCQ are also featured.

OCZ Trion 100 comes in four capacities - 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB, and 960 GB, priced at US $56.99, $87.99, $184.99, and $369.99, respectively. All four variants offer sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/s, while the maximum sequential-write speeds are rated at 450 MB/s, 520 MB/s, 530 MB/s, and 530 MB/s, respectively. The maximum 4K random-read performance for the 120 GB variant is rated at 79,000 IOPS; while the other three offer up to 90,000 IOPS. Random-write performance figures for the four variants are 25,000 IOPS, 43,000 IOPS, 54,000 IOPS, and 64,000 IOPS, respectively. The drives are built in the 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch form-factor, with SATA 6 Gb/s interface. The drives ship with OCZ's SSDGuru software that lets you monitor the drive's health, update its firmware, and wipe it. OCZ is offering a 3-year warranty with these drives.

@185$, it better be MORE than "Cost effective", because thats $20 More than I paid for My Samusung 850Evo 500Gb, not to mention it's Also missing 20Gb's that the 850 Evo has. They better drop those prices and increase the capacity, or quickly increase they're brands recognition/reputation, because although I know OCZ, i Personally wouldn't put one of theyre drives in My PC until I was fairly sure of its longevity/performance by them proving it with consistance, and quality, and with the way SSD prices are dropping, they better do it Quick.

hmm the 850 EVO 500 GB seems to be very cheap indeed. Compared to its other capacities it should be $200ish, but it's $160 right now.

The Trion 100 is okay, but I'd still rather spend my money on the Samsung SSD 850 EVO instead.

Cost effective aren't the kinds of words I want to see on the hardware housing all my data :l OCZ seems to have stepped up their game now that they're in with Toshiba though.

Not looked at mine if it's actually possible, can you take them apart without anyone knowing you have done ?. I waited for my Intel x-25 drives pass their warranty so i could add thermal pads tot he chips which i been wanting to with my sammy as the casing would be a perfect heat sink :p.

All so the Samsung have a better warranty too.

They have it up on anandtech its got good seq read speeds but it performs poorly in other tests (mixed read/write is very poor)

Unfortunately you are one of million. Today consumers don't care about their data, they are chasing only sequential read/write.

looks nice but since $ getting stronger against Rp, the price is closing to the ceiling
