Aimed at consumers who are looking to move away from mechanical drives completely, OCZ's new low priced Trion 100 series shows off 19nm TLC NAND hardware manufactured by Toshiba and are driven by a Toshiba controller. With the controller featuring SLC-caching that enables some of the TLC NAND flash to operate as SLC, this is set to offer great sequential transfer performance.
More goodies include TRIM and NCQ support alongside a DEVSLEEP feature, enabling this drive to draw only 6 mW of power when in this mode. Ranging in sizes and speeds, expect these 120, 240, 480 and 960GB drives to set you back $56.99, $87.99, $184.99 and $369.99 respectively. With the read speed being set at a maximum of 550 MB/s for all models, the sequential write speeds increase as the capacities do, showing off 450, 520, 530 and 530 MB/s respectively.
Coming bundled with a 3-year warranty and encased in a 7mm thick 2.5-inch form-factor casting, these SATA 6Gb/s drives look like a worthy investment
