Silicon Power V20 120GB SandForce SF-1200 SSD Review - The Silicon Power V20 120GB

No, today's review isn't a throwback to 2010. The SF-1200 still has life, only now with a nicer price.

Here we get our first look at the Silicon Power V20. On the outside there isn't much to look at, but Silicon Power has put the capacity size on the front label.

The back of the drive is bare without a label or additional information. The V20 does have the standard bottom mounting points.

The side mounting points are also where they should be, so the drive will fit in your notebook or desktop without issue.

Silicon Power's desktop adapter bracket uses a design that we haven't seen before. The bracket allows you to install the drive in the middle of the bracket or offset as shown here.

Silicon Power chooses to use Micron Technology's flash and pair it with the SandForce SF-1222TA3-SBH controller.
