The ADATA S596 Turbo
Here we get our first look at the ADATA S596 Turbo. The front of the drive lists the model number and serves to remind the user about the USB 2.0 port. At the bottom of the drive we can see the clear looking glass window that illuminates blue when the drive is powered. This comes in very handy when using the drive as a portable with USB 2.0.
The back of the drive has the four standard mounting locations that make installing the SSD in your notebook or desktop bracket easy.
The standard mounting points are also found on the side of the drive.
The most interesting area on the drive is the connector side. The power and data SATA points are both present and where they should be, but here we also see the USB port. We haven't seen this since the Indilinx Barefoot days.
Adding USB to an SSD may not seem all that exciting while your drive is being used as an internal boot drive, but once the magic runs out and you have moved on to a newer, faster SSD, being able to use the S596 Turbo as a portable drive extends the drives usefulness.
