Specifications, Pricing and Availability
In the image above we see the available options for the Lenovo W701ds, AKA the biggest, most bad ass notebook available on the market right now. The base drive is a simple 320GB, 5,400 RPM drive that will work fine for most users. This is an ultra-high performance notebook that when configured to 11 can bust the 6 thousand Dollar price point and in some cases the base drive isn't going to satisfy the needs of someone looking to actually run CAD, CAM or another data intensive app on the system like it was designed for. For those users Lenovo has listed a nice, progressive list of options that go all the way up to the 128GB SSD like the one we are looking at today.
From what I could gather, it appears Lenovo is offering two different SSDs, but end users are not able to choose when ordering. The drive that we are looking at today was originally made by Toshiba, but Lenovo also uses some Samsung drives as well. There may be others too, but I was able to confirm both the Toshiba and Samsung based options.
In a few of our other reviews we tested some other drives based on Toshiba technology. Both Kingston and Western Digital has used Toshiba controllers before. From what I recall in those tests, the Toshiba controllers were based on modified JMicron hardware and used a larger cache module than what we were seeing at the time from JMicron branded controllers.
Let's take a look at the Lenovo (Toshiba OEM) THNS128GG4BAAA and see what it has to offer.
