The Intel X25-M 120GB Retail

On the surface nothing has changed with the latest revision of the Intel SSD. The drive still uses a black ring to get it to the full 9mm height.

All of the label information is listed on the front of the drive and the back is bare other than the four standard mounting locations.

On the back the SATA power and data connections are where they should be for a 9mm height 2.5" form factor drive.

Here we see the screw on adapter bracket that Intel uses to turn their 7mm height drive into the 9mm model. We were hoping to be able to remove the bracket to make this the 7mm model for a netbook, but the screws used to secure the adapter are too long to be used for the conversion.

Here we get our first look at the 120GB hybrid flash drive. The row of flash on the left is labeled CAMDA, the same as used in the 160GB drive and the flash on the right is labeled JAMDA, the same as the 80GB model.

The back of the PCB has open spaces for even more flash, but none are used in the 120GB model.
