OCZ Trion 100 480GB SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2015-12-19

TLC NAND, even with its lower performance, is setting the baseline for the next breed of affordable SSDs so now we will be able to look a step further at 480GB capacities which were never chosen before by the mainstream segment of buyers. Thanks to the pseudo-SLC cache Trion 100 employs, which varies in size depending on the total storage capacity of the drive, regular users which use the drive for activities which do not require sustained writes of large files will not get to see a big difference between this SSD model and other, higher priced MLC variants because they will mostly work with the included cache.
