Mushkin Rector 1TB SSD
There isn't much to the package, but at least you don't need a razor blade to open it, the plastic shell just pulls apart.
The back of the package gives us some general information about the drive and the 3-year warranty.
What you see is what you get...
... but for just $369.99 this is really all you need. 1TB of flash goodness packaged in a 7mm housing so it will work in Ultrabooks and notebooks that require the reduced height.
This is the first time we've found sixteen NAND flash packages paired with the SMI SM2246EN controller.
The SM2246EN controller has been around for around a year now and we've found it to be reliable. The only use we know of is a single firmware release that used more power than the others. The fix for that was released to manufacturers before the Reactor hit the market.
Mushkin used two packages of Samsung's sixth generation DDR3 that uses 1.35v and runs at 1600MHz for the Reactor.
Mushkin used Micron L95B flash for the Reactor. That is Micron 16nm 128Gbit, the same flash used in the MX100 from Crucial.
This is also the first time we've seen the PCB double as the SATA power and data connector on an SSD. Mushkin may have found a way to shave a few cents off each drive produced using this method.
