    There were a few 3.5's when ssds first came out. Guess the industry has decided to go smaller or pci.

    I think most of the 3.5 drives had internal raid0 setups with 2 smaller SSD enclosed. Someone correct me if i'm wrong?

    I bought a 3.5 inch 180GB V2 simply because it was the cheapest 180GB Sandforce available at the time. Many if not most of the consumer 3.5 SSDs are actually 2.5 or 1.8 SSDs inside a 3.5 case. I would open mine up to show you but I want to keep the warranty.
