MemoRight FTM Plus Slim 240GB SSD

The MemoRight FTM Plus Slim is only thinner on its Z axis. The X and Y axis are the same so you won't have a problem fitting this drive in your current notebook or desktop.

MemoRight did use a new case design for the Slim, half of which is now made from plastic instead of aluminum.

Here we get a good look at the Z-height. The drive is 2.5mm thinner than a traditional notebook drive, but we can't find a reason why you can't use this drive in your existing notebook. The bottom and size mounting points are located in the traditional locations.

The SATA power and data connectors are also located in the same space as the standard 9.5mm drives. Here we see the included desktop adapter bracket and one of the very few things we can complain about. Visually you can see that the adapter bracket does not offset the drive to the left so the SATA connectors don't line up with backplanes.

If your desktop drive sled does not have provisions for mounting a 2.5" drive you will need to purchase a different adapter bracket. The second issue we had with this bracket is that it is bends easily. In this image you can see that metal is very thin. This is not the quality we expect from MemoRight. We hope it gets fixed in future drives.

On the other hand this is the quality we expect to see from MemoRight every time they deliver a package to our door. The FTM Plus Slim includes beefy OVP circuitry much like we see on enterprise class drives.

The Slim uses a standard SandForce SF-2281 controller and pairs it with sixteen Micron 25nm synchronous flash chips.

Also shown here is an indication to why we are having issues finding this new model in the wild. This drive has a serial number ending in 0003. It is most likely the third drive manufactured for retail.
