The Kingston SSDNow M-Series SSD

The label has a few subtle differences from the Intel version of the drive. As you can see, the drive has some Kingston branding with the SSDNOW logo.

The biggest difference that I have found with the Kingston M-Series drive is the use of a top plate that makes the drive the same height as standard 2.5-inch notebook drives. It might not seem like much but the plate made it a lot easier to get the Kingston drive into my Lenovo T61p notebook. Nearly all notebooks are designed to fit the standard height and when the spacer is removed it is a little harder to get the drive lined up to fit properly.

Along the back we see the standard data and power connectors and that they are placed where they should be.

The back of the drive is pretty much plain since all of the serial and product information is on the front of the drive.
