OCZ has this week launch of a new range of affordable solid state disk (SSD) drives in the form of the new OCZ Trion 100 range that are powered by a controller created by Toshiba after the company purchased OCZ last year.

The drives have been designed to provide a 2.5-inch form-factor, with SATA 6 Gb/s interface and measure 7mm thick. All drives are supplied with OCZ’s SSDGuru software that lets you monitor the drive’s health, update its firmware and format the drive when required.
