Here we get our first look at the Chronos Deluxe. Mushkin now shows a new sticker for the line on their website, but the inner workings are the same.

On the side we found the standard mounting points positioned where they should be.

The back of the drive also shows the model number, firmware at the time the drive shipped and serial number. The standard underside mounting points are also where they should be.

The included desktop adapter bracket offsets the drive so the SATA power and data ports are where they should be for installing the drive in a drive sled.

As we stated previously, the 120GB drive uses sixteen Toshiba Toggle Mode flash chips and a single SandForce SF-2281 controller.

The Deluxe has eight flash chips on each side and the underside holds most of the surface-mount components.
