Plextor M5 Pro 128GB SSD
Here we see the actual drive. It is a Plextor as you can see, but all of the data is located on the back of the drive.
The back sticker lists the model number, the capacity size, serial number and so on.
At this point we don't recommend buying a SSD with a 9.5mm z-height since one day you may want to use the drive in an ultrabook. The Plextor M5 Pro follows the 7mm specs, which will fit in your ultrabook.
The SATA power and data connectors are located where they should be. Here we see the drive loaded in the desktop adapter bracket.
Plextor used the latest Marvell controller, 88SS9187-BLD2. The NAND flash and DRAM are on the other side of the PCB.
An up-close shot of the controller.
The NAND and DRAM all get thermal transfer material to the top cover of the drive and that's why all of the components are on the same side of the PCB.
There are eight 19nm Toshiba Toggle NAND flash chips, Type A, 8K page sizes. The 128GB capacity size uses a single 256MB DRAM chip to hold table data.
