OCZ Trion 150 480GB & 960GB SATA SSD Review


When OCZ's Trion 100 was released last July it proved to be a pretty impressive value-forward SSD series. It also happened to be a rather big deal for

When we first reviewed OCZ’s Trion series, the conclusion boiled down to one salient fact: while potential buyers will drool over halo

OCZ Trion 150 240GB and 480GB SSD Review


Back at launch in July 2015 we reviewed the OCZ Trion 100 SSD's. These were the first OCZ drives to feature a Toshiba controller and A19 TLC NAND flash. Today we look at the latest iteration of the Trion series, dubbed the ‘Trion 150'. The Trion 150...

IOPS performance has improved over older Trion 100.

SSD market is both saturated and extremely competitive.

OCZ Trion 150 (480GB)


The OCZ Trion 150 is a good budget SSD, but the lack of cloning software and accessories may cause trouble for newbie tinkerers.

Good performance. Advance-swap replacement warranty.

No accessory bundle or software.

The OCZ Trion 150 SSD Review


Last year's OCZ Trion 100 was the first drive released by OCZ as a subsidiary of Toshiba, and was really more of a Toshiba product that was released under the OCZ brand. As a prime opportunity to reestablish the OCZ brand post-bankruptcy, the Trion 100...

However, for all that the Trion 150 didn't live up to our fears and turned out to be pretty good for a sub-20nm planar TLC drive, it also did nothing to significantly close the performance gap with MLC drives. This means the price still needs to be...

OCZ Trion 150 480GB Review (Page 1 of 11)


Whenever I go to university, I park my car at a location about eight minutes' walk away from the engineering building. Now, eight minutes of walking is not too far away, but if you ask me what the best way to get from the engineering building to my car...

With new flash chips and an updated firmware underneath the hood of the OCZ Trion 150 480GB, the mission of this drive has not changed. The mission was not to explore new frontiers to raise the bar in performance. Instead, the mission was to offer more...

OCZ Trion 150 480GB Solid State Drive Review


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

– Solid performance ; – Price ; – Compatible with OCZ’s SSD Toolbox software ; – 3-year ShieldPlus warranty

– TLC NAND has lower write speeds, IOPS and endurance than MLC NAND

OCZ definitely has a contender for an inexpensive solid state drive. Drives like these will make is very easy for people to upgrade their current systems with solid state drives. As a successor to the Trion 100 the Trion 150 is faster and comes in at a...

OCZ Trion 150 SSD Review


OCZ is on its second-generation TLC-based effort. The new Trion 150 updates the flash to Toshiba's 15nm TLC, but the largest improvement comes from firmware that increases sustained write performance.

OCZ's ShieldPlus warranty and SSD Guru software are among the best available. The Trion 150 includes both if you're willing to overlook some of its shortcomings

The Trion 150 is a welcome replacement for the poorly-received Trion 100, but it's still not as competitive as it needs to be. It's difficult to recommend this model when the same company offers an MLC-based SSD for the same price

Products like the OCZ ARC 100 and Zotac Premium Edition with MLC flash disarm any value arguments from the Trion 150 right out of the gate. The new Trion improves on some of the performance limitations found in the original model, but that's still not...

OCZ Trion 150 480GB SSD review


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...

Street price for the Trion 150 480GB drive is currently $139.99 over At this price, we have to do with approximately $0.28 per gigabyte for the new drive - a nice price if you are considering a SATA SSD for a system upgrade.

OCZ Trion 150 (480GB) Review and Ratings


OCZ's second-gen TLC-based budget drive is decent overall, but its lack of cloning software or in-box accessories could baffle some first-time SSD buyers.

Good overall performance for a budget SSD ; Swanky-looking outer shell ; Advance-swap replacement warranty

No accessory bundle whatsoever ; Slightly expensive for an entry-level drive

When it comes to upgrading to an SSD from a hard drive, installing any modern SSD will make your rig feel like it was hit by a lightning bolt of speed-giving goodness, just like Barry Allen in

OCZs TRION makes another appearance. Previously the TRION 100 underperformed; OCZ promises better performance from the TRION 150, let's see.
