PNY Prevail Elite 240GB SSD
The Prevail Elite uses a 9.5mm z-height, standard notebook size case.
The model, part and serial numbers can be found on the back of the drive.
We found all of the standard mountings points positioned where they should be.
The inner case tipped up a surprise. The case was molded with two channels that contact the NAND flash. This acts as a heatsink for the NAND flash. The LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller gets a thermal pad to aid in heat extraction.
The oily residue from the thermal pad makes it nearly impossible to picture the laser etched letters on the controller, at least from a graceful angle.
There are sixteen Intel 25nm NAND flash chips rated for 10K P/E cycles on the 240GB Prevail Elite. On the consumer side this flash is fairly rare, we don't see 29F16B16MCME1 very often.
