Seagate 600 SSD 480GB
Here we get our first look at the largest capacity size in the 600 SSD family. Seagate put together an attractive design; it's too bad the drive hides beneath plastic and metal in a notebook or desktop case.
The model, part and serial numbers are on a sticker located on the back of the case.
In this article we're testing the 7mm model. The 7mm standard uses the same mounting points as 9.5mm z-height 2.5" HDD's and SSD's.
7mm also uses standard SATA power and data connectors.
Seagate uses an anti-intrusion system and if you get your drive to this state, the warranty is void.
Seagate used Toshiba 19nm Toggle Mode NAND flash, the new Type C version.
The flash controller is the same Corsair used on the Neutron and Neutron GTX, a Link_A_Media Devices LM87800AA. The controller has two DDR2 256MB DRAM buffers from Micron.
