Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD




The Laptop Thin SSHD shipped to us in its bare drive form. At the top we find the capacity listed at 500GB, a little lower on the drive there is the Advanced Format logo denoting the drive's capability of said feature.




The back of the drive houses a blue PCB with the SATA and power connections at the bottom. Worth noting here is the use of standard Philips screws instead of tamper proof torx.




The drives power and data connections are correctly placed, insuring wide compatibility.




Disassembling the drive we find an LSI controller for the platter portion of the drive with the eASIC for NAND management. For caching Seagate has employed a single Winbond 64MB DDR2 DRAM chip.




The NAND flash component found in our sample was the Toshiba TH58TEG6D2HBA4C, or in technical terms 8GB 24nm 8K MLC Toggle.




To check the Z-Height of the drive, I setup my Starrett 799. At the drives thickest point it measured in at 6.44mm.




Putting the drive on our AWS BT-201 scale we find the drive weighing in just over 91 grams.
