We’ve just posted the following review: OCZ ARC 100 240GB SSD Review[newsimage]http://static.myce.com//images_posts/2014/08/drive-tiny.png[/newsimage]

It has been a while since OCZ released a budget SSD, but
that is the market segment where the new OCZ ARC 100 series of SSDs is aimed
at. The ARC 100 further consolidates OCZ’s transition to all in-house
components, in this case the transition to Toshiba A19 MLC NAND.

So let’s find out this value line SSD performs in our range of tests.

Thank you for the review, Wendy. :slight_smile: It’s nice to see the performance of SSDs sort of stabilizing so that there’s some quality available in all price segments, and across more capacities (instead of just the largest capacity available).

Just a typo I caught on the Synthetic Benchmarks section:

The OCZ ARC 100 SSD is quite fast, but can’t quite keep pace with the other SSDs in this test with larger bock sizes.

Indeed, there is a huge market for good quality entry level SSDs, and at this capacity its ideal for a system drive.

Typo now fixed as well, thanks for reporting.

Can we be sure it was a typo and not a Freudian slip? :stuck_out_tongue:

Seems like a handy little performer.
If it turns out budget priced, it can definitely replace the older high performers, and is competitive with current budget ssds. It’s a pity that is 6-8 months late to the party.

The MLC may work in its favour vs the TLC in other budget ssds.
