Anyone used the Sun 2.5" SSD (7101234)?

3 posts in this topic

My suspicion is that you'll hear crickets on this one. We've never seen one, though I'd guess they're rebranding someone else's drive.

As I have found out with the delivery of the drive it is a Sun branded Toshiba SSD. Also interesting to note this drive is considered a client PC level drive even though Sun intended the drive to be deployed in their enterprise level storage appliance (ZFS 7000, etc). Yes, it's an MLC flash chip type. As noted on many commercial sites it's a 4 kilobuck 512GB MLC drive. i guess the extra price is for the Sun label on the box and the Sun drive bracket. ;-)

Drive Formatting: No data or format of any kind. Empty on delivery.

Drive Factory testing: SSD Life Pro reported one previous insertion (power up) before my use. It was factory sealed. I assume the drive was tested at the factory.

Security seals: Unlike other offering commercial and OEM, it's interesting to note this Sun branded Toshiba drive does not have any stickers or other security seals on the case. You could disassemble the drive and no one would be the wiser. The case screws do have blue thread lock. The screws securing the board do not have any thread lock.

Heat Sink/ spreaders: Most of the IC's have heat conduction to the metal drive case via thermal pads.
