Our sample Agility 3 drive shipped with the new but soon to be replaced plastic casing. This outer shell will soon be replaced with a new version that fits Lenovo and HP notebook caddies. You can read more about the issue here, but we've been told everything will be resolved any day now.

The back of the current casing has all of the under mounting positions as it should.

The side mounting locations are also where they should be.

The SATA power and data connections are located where they should be once you overlook the angled edge that gave us so much of an issue with the Lenovo notebooks.

Here's where things get interesting. The Agility 3 uses Micron flash, but not the same found on the Vertex 3.

There are 16 Micron async flash chips on the PCB, eight on each side.
