Here we see the 1.8 inch form factor Lenovo drive in its 2.5" adapter. All of the labeling is on the front of the drive and it fits snugly in the adapter.

The back of the drive shows the rest of the mounting system used by the adapter.

The SATA power and data connectors are kept within SATA specifications in the adapter. The adapter was designed to keep these in place so there wouldn't be an issue installing the 1.8" form factor drive into a standard notebook.

On one end the locking arm can be released and the smaller drive slid out from the adapter.

Here we see the three pieces of the drive when separated. Just like the Kingston drive we tested several months ago, Toshiba has once again used thermal transfer material to keep the internals cool.

All of the chips are located on one side of the drive. The drive uses eight NAND flash modules, a single controller and a single cache module.

The back of the drive is free of major components, but does have a few surface mount parts.

 

Now let's see how it performs!
