Crucial RealSSD 128GB 1.8-inch SSD

2. The package

Crucial send us the 128GB version of the Crucial RealSSD 1.8-inch series (CTFDDAA128MAG-1G1), which retails for about ~ $300. That's a $2.5 per GB, provided that the actual capacity of the drive after formatting is about 119.2GB. Crucial’s C300 is priced competitively with the market, considering that not many other companies offer 1.8" SSD drives.

The SSD retails in the same yellow package you may have already seen in other products of the RealSSD C300 family of SSDs. The small cardboard box has the size of the 1.8" drive and features a sticker at the front side with the indicating the product's capacity. The specifications of the drive is also available at the rear side of the package:

The SSD is securely placed into an anti static package. Basic information about the drive s also provided in the included manual:

The Crucial RealSSD 128GB has the typical 1.8" dimensions and its weight is ~45grams. The external dimensions are 7.8 x 5.40 cm with an height of 0.50cm.

The label on the bottom side of the SSD has information about the drive as well its serial number and the installed firmware revision (0002):

The product is compatible with SATA 6GB, 3GB and 1.5GB/s interfaces. The certified 355MB/sec is only achieved when you have connected the SSD to a 6GB port, which is only found at the latest motherboards. Of course, you can also use a PCI-e slot card. Note that the mSATA (aka micro-SATA) interface is not compatible with older notebooks. So unless your notebook is brand new, you should buy a special adapter that costs ~ 25$. We would prefer Crucial to bundle such an adapter with the drive.
