The RunCore Pro V 2.5" SATA III SSD
RunCore has always built their drives very well and only uses quality construction. I have a feeling this comes from some of their more specialized products that are designed for military and industrial use. The case on the Pro V SATA III is brushed aluminum and looks really good.
The back side of the drive is also made of aluminum and has the product label on it. This is where you will find the product name, part and serial numbers.
The side of the drive has the typical mounting locations where they should be for easy drive installation in an adapter bracket or drive sled.
The SATA power and data cable positions are where they should be, but RunCore didn't use an adapter bracket that offsets the drive to the left side. This may become an issue when using some drive sleds that need an offset to connect to an internal SATA port.
Inside we found a typical SandForce SF-2281 design with eight IMFT 25nm asynchronous flash chips per side of the PCB.
The drive has quite a few surface mount components, more than what we typically see these days. This tells us that RunCore has designed the PCB and moved away from the SandForce reference design.
