We are not expecting to see any changes on the front of the Vertex 2.

The last labels to be changed are on the back. Just add a quick firmware change and presto, 100GB turns to 120GB. That is at least what we are hoping for.

The side of the Vertex 2 E has all of the standard mounting positions for easy installation in desktop or notebook computers.

Standard SATA power and data connectors were also used, so just about any hot swap device that use 2.5" form factor drives will work.

With the PCB out we see that the configuration hasn't changed and the same eight Intel flash modules are present on each side. In the middle we see the SandForce SF-1200 controller.
