The Trion 100 comes in a small, off-white box. While there aren't a lot of details on the front, the back of the box advertises many of the drive's key features including its SATA 6Gbps interface, 2.5" ultra-slim form factor, Toshiba TLC NAND flash memory and a 3-year warranty. 

OCZ doesn't include a lot of extras with the Trion 100. Along with the SSD, the box contains a small drive installation manual with instructions for both desktop and notebook computers as well as a sheet of paper with information on how to reach OCZ's tech support.

Physical Features:

The Trion 100's construction is very different from OCZ's other 2.5-inch SSDs. Instead of aluminum, the outer casing is made out of a metal alloy that is thinner, lighter weight and probably cheaper to manufacture. Also, similar to Crucial's new SSDs, the Trion 100 is held together using clips, rather than screws.

The Trion 100 is the first SSD to use Toshiba's TC58 (TC58NC1000GSB-00) controller chip. At the moment, very little is known about this controller. However, considering its size and the way it is positioned on the PCB, the TC58 has more than a passing resemblance to the Phison S10.

For the 480GB Vector 180, OCZ opted to use Toshiba's A19nm TH58TETOUDKBAEF TLC NAND flash modules. Looking at the pictures above, you can see that there are four of these 128GB NAND flash packages on the top of the PCB. The drive also has a single 256MB NANYA NT5CC256M16DP-DI DDR3L SDRAM memory chip that is used for caching and garbage collection.
