The model and serial numbers are located on the back and the bottom mounting holes are where they should be.

The X210 products are all 7mm z-height drives. This gives the X210 a large range of installation options since many new Ultrabook models require 7mm SSDs. The 7mm z-height retains the standard mounting points found on traditional 9.5mm height drives, so it will work in standard notebooks and server drive sleds as well.

The SATA power and data connectors are also located where they should be.

Inside we found a metal base with thermal pads that transfer heat away from the controller, DRAM and NAND flash.

The Marvell controller has a DRAM buffer close to the controller and eight 19nm ABL NAND flash packages.

All of the surface mount components are on the same side of the drive.
