OCZ is one of the earliest adopters of SSD technology, and their products have always been at the forefront of technology. Last year the company was acquired by Toshiba, which is one of the reasons why OCZ is able to release the Trion 100 SSD today. The Trion is based on Toshiba-made TLC flash chips and a Toshiba SSD controller.
The Trion is designed for cost-optimized, read-heavy consumer application, which its pricing reflects. The OCZ Trion 100 480 GB we are reviewing today only costs $185. The following capacities are available: 120 GB ($57), 240 GB ($88), 480 GB ($185), and 960 GB ($370). This makes the Trion one of the cheapest drives, which has it compete with such drives as Crucial's BX100 SSD.
