    Most are these days. They tend to come with little plastic brackets that go around the perimeter of the drive and then make the drive thicker so they fit in most enclosures/carriages.

    Yours looks to be a 5mm drive in height, most "older" drives are 7mm+

    Just looks slimmer than all the SSD's i own.

    Which made me wounder if you could fit other SSD's ( 7mm ) in that casing.

    Just was curious lol.

    I got the 120 GB version (several of them, in fact) that all did. Yet Kingston has changed what SSD is under that there label many times, and has many different levels of packaging too.

    Kingston are pretty reliable in my books, and offer decent pricing, too, in every segment of the SSD market.

    But like I said, they have many different versions of the same "model" at times (the V300 was a bad one for this), and that I dislike, since they swapped out flash for much slower stuff. I noticed this when going to replace a problematic unit, getting a new one to throw in, and then having to go back for complaints about it being slow. Took some serious digging to find out the real cause of the slowdowns...

    Not to reign on your parade, but:

    Don't get me wrong though, national pride is great for sure. This just isn't the place for it.
