OCZ has put out some great SSD drives over the years. From high-end enthusiast drives in the Vertex and Vector lines to the smoking fast PCIe based Revo drives (and let me tell you, we are looking forward to the PCIe based NVME drives too!). OCZ also has their ‘bang for the buck’ line in the Agility and new Arc series. Now they have an even more price oriented line in the Trion 100 series. The Trion line of drives are a more ‘read performance oriented’ series versus write performance when compared to the Arc and other OCZ high-end enthusiast SSDs.
