Crucial MX300 SSD

So why is this a “limited edition” drive? Crucial was eager to showcase the speed and reliability of new Micron 3D NAND and couldn’t wait to debut it in a large and affordable capacity. Sounds good to us. We can not wait to see what this new drive can do.

OCZ Trion 150 960 GB SSD

The Trion 150 uses the Toshiba's own Indilinx Barefoot 3 M00 controller, a slightly over-clocked version of the Barefoot 3 M10 controller used in OCZ's in the ARC and Vertex 460(s) drives. The Trion 150 uses Toshiba’s 15nm TLC NAND Flash. Toshiba states that the new Trion delivers "increased real-world performance" the earlier version. The Trion 100 we reviewed a while back offered good performance, but seemed like it could use just a touch more get go. It looks like the Trion 150 has just that get go.

As someone who travels frequently for work, I have grown to appreciate devices that make my life easier while on the road. A few years ago I tested several wireless enabled SD storage devices from Sandisk, and while they were great products, they lacked some features I wanted such as a backup battery, and the ability to function as a wireless access point in hotels that have ethernet connections.  Today I am taking a look at a device from Kingston that is said to grant me all of my wishes and more.
