    OCZ any good?

      Heard many bad things as well as mine dying on me in a few years too.

        Me too. Had two drives die. Went Samsung and haven't had any problems. I hope OCZ have fixed their QC issues, but I am not going to risk it again.

    Eek

    Other drives that use the faster cache/slower-NAND model generally offer relatively large 32GB or 64GB caches, so you’ll hardly ever notice a real slowdown. However, the cache on the 120GB and 240GB Trions is a measly 3GB

      The drive would actually be alright as a data drive but not a system drive (for the OS) since the OS will require caching much more frequently. Using it as a data drive for games etc will be decent and still miles ahead of SSHD or standard spinners.

        This is true. I am after one for my system drive at the moment and haven't read anything good about this one. Staying away for now, waiting for the next deal.

          Real world it makes a good fast, cheap boot drive, I have one in my old gaming machine boots in seconds loads games lightning fast compared to a fast HDD :)
          I went with it as I have an older 60 GB OCZ that has been flawless for a few years so far, still in everyday use on the machine I am typing on.

          The noticable difference between a HDD and an SSD is MASSIVE the difference between a "slow" SSD and a "fast" one is small.

    •  

      Is this slower &/or less reliable than the 60GB Patriot SSD for $48 at MSY?

  •  

    Holy! How low can you go? 240GB for $87? The Trion 100 seems to be a tad slower than the Arc 100 for writes but is TLC vs MLC and has longer life. Pretty nice!

    •  

      One of the magazines did some endurance tests on 5 ARC100s and they all survived a pretty considerable time - into the hundreds of terabytes of writes IIRC.

    Can I get free shipping if buy SSD together with free shipping stuff?

    •  

      generally no as the weight will still increase and we can't afford to do free freight on these items.

      If you want you can request a quote on the items you want and make sure to include the tick box request shipping quote with your address details and we can double check and reply for you

      •  

        SSD + free postage USD drive shouldn't be a big difference I reckon.

        •  

          possibly not but will depend on where you are sending to.

          I have not seen any quote request overnight can you request a quote as above and we will reply?

    tempted for a 240GB … so cheap

    The $80 sweet spot for a 240GB SSD is not too far !!

    •  

      Buy a couple and use them as game storage drives. Best use for these. They get terrible reviews otherwise.

      •  

        compare to what? compare to samsung evo surely, compare to patriot, kingston, it is alright, 240GB sequence read/write 550/520 MB/s not bad imo

        •  

          The labelled speeds aren't what you should be worried about. The realistic speeds are. And so for transferring any larger sizes, the speed on these dips quite low from what I've read. Hence my recommendation if you really want them, they're best used as storage drive rather than an OS drive.

          @Rail Rider95: as far as i can see this is far more faster than kingston v300. have you ever own one? or you just give the feedback based on your opinion?

          @andyken:
          Hi no I haven't owned one, but I do my research when I'm considering buying new computer parts.

          Have a read of the performance section of this review. The drive comes with a cache a tenth (or even a 20th) the size of other drives. Only 3gb. Which means that file transfers over that size will slow down drastically, based on the type of ssd this is.

          @Rail Rider95: oh ok, fair enough, i use on my htpc machine, cant feel the slowness :)

          No worries, always good to get an actual users opinion of real world performance. Cheers

    Pickup is Auburn, NSW 2144

  •  

    thank you

  •  

    My Trion died this week, and it for like 2-3 months or something, can't remember.

  •  

    Actually, my Samsung died after 1 month, whereas my Kingston still running 3 years no issue
