With their OCZ TR 200 series, Toshiba has a line of SSDs in their portfolio that comes with BiCS3 memory, which is based on 3D-NAND with 64 layers. This allows the vendors to crate high capacity drives at aggressive price points. Looking for the controller we find the proven TC58 from Toshiba and we're rather curious to find out how this drive does in our review.

With the TR200 Toshiba shows their first SSD that is based on 64 layer BiCS3 memory. The predecessor, the Trion 150, was using 15 nanometer TLC NAND flash memory, wheras the new TR200 is now based on 3D NAND. Switching to 3D NAND allows a vendor to lower its pricing even further and at the same time realize drives with higher capacity.

As with the predecessor also the TR200 is using a Toshiba Alishan controller, which goes by the name TC58, or to be even more precise: TC58NC1010GSB-00. Apart from that it has been combined with TH58TF0T23TA2H 3D-NAND flash memory, which, as we already mentioned, features 64 layers. A closer look at the line-up reveals there are three different models, which differ in capacity: 240GB, 480GB and 960GB SKUs are available.

A closer look at the TR200's bundle shows clearly that these entry level drives are targeting the entry level segment. Nevertheless Toshiba offers a 3-year pick-up and return warranty plan.
