Solid State Drives, or SSDs for those of you that are hip with the acronyms, are one of the most revolutionary advances to the personal computing experience. These drives can take any ordinary computer and make it extraordinary by supplying faster operating system boot times, by reducing media and content creation overhead and energizing a gaming experience like no other. The best part about all this? SSDs are becoming more and more affordable everyday. Also, stability and longevity issues in the teething period have been solved with better controllers, software support and manufacturing processes. OCZ has a lot to do with the advances in the storage space.

Over the recent years, solid-state drives or SSDs have become all the rave due to their high-speed performance, low power consumption, and silent operation. As far as raw speed goes, a traditional mechanical hard drive cannot compete with an SSD. The downside for SSDs, however, has been capacity limitations, stability issues, and higher costs.
Thankfully, manufacturers such as OCZ have been working hard on these issues; and we are starting to see larger capacities at lower prices as well as increased stability on newer controllers.
Today we will be test-driving the TR150 Series 120GB and 240gb SSDs from OCZ to see just how these new drives stack up against a couple of other drives that we have here in the shop. Sporting maximum sequential read and write speeds of up to 550MB/s and 430MB/s respectively, SATA III operation, a 3-year Advanced Warranty Program and enterprise-quality construction; OCZ gives us high hopes that this drive will be very popular with consumers looking to make the jump to a solid-state solution for their storage needs.
