OCZ Trion 150 480GB SSD review

1. Basic features

We have in our labs OCZ's second budget solid-state drive based on triple-level-cell (or TLC) flash. The new Trion 150 SSD is marketed as a "better" hard disk replacement and promises to offer up to 50% faster performance in many real world use cases such as large file transfers, compared to the previous Trion 100 SSD model.

This statement sounds a risky consodering that the Trion 150 SSD shares the sme specifications with the Trion 100 model, with an exection related to the NAND inside: The Trion 150 uses Toshiba's latest generation 15nm TLC NAND, compared to the 19nm TLC NAND of the Trion 100.

Just like the Trion 100 before it, the Trion 150 comes in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB flavors. In addition, the controller inside the Trion 150 hasn't changed - it's the same Toshiba TC58 found in the Trion 100.

Below you see the specs:

We've got the Trion 150 480GB on hand for our review. Unfortunately, we did not have the chance to test the Trion 100 480GB drive in order to compare the new drive's performance figures to the old one's.

Besides the NAND Flash change and some firmware adjustments there really aren’t any new features on the OCZ Trion 150 series. All versions of the Trion 150 come with three years of OCZ's ShieldPlus rapid-exchange warranty coverage. And just like the Trion 100 480GB, the Trion 150 480GB is rated for 120TB of total bytes written, spread out across 110GB per day. The budget drive doesn't come with fancy extras like encryption acceleration in the controller.

The 480GB drive we're looking at sells for $129.99 on Newegg. The 120GB version will set buyers back $45.99, while the 240GB version rings in at $69.99 and the 960GB drive sells for $269.99.
