The RunCore Pro V Plus 120GB SSD

We are going to have to take a sort of 'run what you brung' approach to this (p)review, since we didn't get either of the retail kits. What you see is what we've got. This is a new case design for RunCore; the embossed lettering is gone and replaced with a more traditional sticker that shows the drives model number, serial number and the product name.

The back of the drive has the standard mounting points, so you won't have an issue installing this drive in a 3rd party adapter bracket.

The side mounting points are located where they should be as well, but this is where things gets a bit funny. I've opened this type of casing before even though it is a pain in the butt, but I can't get the new Pro V Plus case open to show the drives PCB configuration. I spent around a half hour poking and prodding without success. I finally stopped after slicing my thumb open.

The SATA power and data connectors are offset how they should be.
