Review: OCZ Trion 150 480GB SSD

Reviewed by: Wendy Robertson

Provided by: OCZ

Model: TRN150-25SAT3-480g

Firmware version: SAFZ12.2

 

The OCZ Trion 150 is aimed at the budget end of the consumer SSD market, and is the successor the popular OCZ Trion 100 range of SSDs.  The Trion 150 is powered by a Toshiba branded SSD controller, and is coupled to Toshiba 15nm TLC NAND.

As stated above, the Trion 150 is targeted at the budget end of the market, and is aimed at low end PCs, laptops, or as a data storage drive, on perhaps a more powerful PC, where a higher performance SSD is being used, such as the OCZ Vector 180 as a system drive.

The OCZ Trion 150 is available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB. The version I am looking at today is the 480GB version.

Now it’s time to take a look at the drive itself and what it came shipped with.

Being a budget SSD, you get a bare drive and installation manual.

The casing of the OCZ Trion 150 is an all metal affair. The drive is fairly lightweight, but solidly built.

You can also download and install OCZ’s excellent SSD GURU software, which allows the firmware to be updated, and allows the user to carry out various maintenance/diagnostic tasks on the Trion 150 SSD.

The Trion 150 also comes with OCZ Shield Plus warranty, which means that if the drive should fail within the three year warranty period, OCZ will ship you out a brand new SSD as an advanced replacement, thereby keeping down time to a minimum. OCZ will also supply you with a pre-paid return label, so that you can return the defective SSD free of charge.
