This SSD Review is going to closely evaluate the renice X3 120GB SATA 3 mSATA SSD. It will be a great comparison with our similar reviews of the Samsung PM800 and Intel 310 just a few months ago. Because of their tiny form factor, mSATA SSDs are starting to appear as the only storage option in ultralight notebooks such as the Samsung Series 9 as well as being seen as boot drives in larger notebooks offered by Lenovo in their T, W an X Series, Asus and Dell.
mSATA stands for mini-SATA and is a relatively new format of SSD, measuring roughly 50mm long, 30mm wide and 4.75mm high. That is about 1/3rd as long as a credit card and just as wide. It also stands just a touch higher than a 25 cent piece.
