Specifications, Pricing and Availability
RunCore uses performance numbers from early 2011 for their specification sheet. These numbers should have been updated after the handful of performance updates that emerged in SandForce's firmware updates.
The RunCore Pro V 2.5" SATA III is available in four capacity sizes. Those are 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and the massive 480GB size. RunCore also has two options available, a Notebook Upgrade and Desktop DIY install kit. Each kit includes components that make installing the drive easier.
Today we're looking at the 120GB model that is included in the Desktop DIY kit. The kit includes a 2.5" to 3.5" desktop adapter bracket sticker kit and SATA III cable.
Looking around online, we managed to find the Pro V 2.5" SATA III 120GB drive for around 190 Dollars using Google Product Search. The price is good, but we've started seeing SF-2281 / synchronous flash drives break into the 170 Dollar mark and that combination is faster. Those drives don't ship with the same high quality case; one of the best we've seen or a special short SATA III cable.
