The MemoRight FTM Plus

The drive itself is an aluminum chassis with a label that carries the theme of the box over to the drive.

The back of the drive lists the model number MRSAD4A240GC925C00, the serial number and the firmware of the drive when shipped.

On the drive we found the side screw locations placed where they should be.

The power and data points are where they should be on the drive, but the drive bracket doesn't offset the drive. This means if you are using the FTM Plus in a drive enclosure, you will need a different bracket if your enclosure sleds do not already have support for 2.5" drives.

MemoRight use a custom PCB for their SandForce SF-2281 controlled SSD. The PCB is secured to the aluminum case by several screws, some of which are in the middle of the PCB. This is quite a bit different from what we've seen from other manufacturers and should keep the PCB from flexing as a result of high G loads. This is just one example of MemoRight making their products to a higher standard and why they claim to be a commercial drive maker and not just a maker of consumer grade products.

MemoRight uses higher density flash on their 240GB drive, so only one side of the PCB is covered in NAND flash. The other side is void of everything other than a handful of surface mount components.
