Our SSD-meister, Billy Tallis, took a look at Toshiba’s new TR200 drives earlier this month. As Toshiba’s newest generation of entry-level SATA drives, the drives are solid, but performance of the drive is understandably bounded by the limitations of the SATA interface and TLC NAND. However the drives also feature great idle power management, making them particularly useful as a laptop upgrade.
The giveaway is running through November 13th and is open to all US and UK residents. You can find the full details for entering the giveaway over on the storage section of our forums.
