RunCore Pro V MAX 240GB SSD
As we stated previously, our MAX sample arrived like an OEM drive this time. We wanted a fresh, untouched sample straight from the line and not a round-robin review drive and that is what we received. This way the flash is still fresh and we can get the drive to steady state in the same manner we do most of our review samples. This is important because the last test run by another reviewer can affect our results, an issue we ran into with the Pro V review a few months back.
The retail model of the Pro V MAX includes a retail box, SATA cable, documentation, desktop adapter bracket and the drive that you'll see here today.
Here we get our first look at the RunCore Pro V MAX. RunCore has used this case before on other models. So, the outside doesn't really have anything new (other than the label on the other side). The housing is built from aluminum, all the way around.
The specific model number for the 240GB Pro V MAX is RCP-V-T2524-MCS. Given that RunCore has several products listed under the Pro V you will want to pay close attention to the model number when placing your order.
As mentioned previously, the MAX uses a 9.5mm z-height. This is the typical notebook standard for SATA drives these days. Some new Ultrabooks now use 7mm height drives and RunCore has SSD for that specification.
All of the mounting points are located where they should be so you won't run into any issue with the Pro V MAX fitting in your notebook or desktop. In a desktop installation you can use the included desktop adapter bracket that will allow the drive to fit in a standard 3.5" form factor bay.
Inside we found Intel 25nm synchronous flash (CCME3), the same as several ultra-high performance drives these days.
There are sixteen flash chips, eight on each side.
