Toshiba HG6 512GB SATA SSD Review

 

Specification

 toshiba spec

 

As we can see in the specification, Toshiba NAND has been made in the latest 19nm process. The controller has also been made by Toshiba as we can see on the below photo which is showing what we can expect to find inside HG6 SSD. The weird looking spots on the chips are showing contact spots with thermal pads. Thermal pads have direct contact with SSD case which is made of aluminum so is great to spread any heat.

Closer Look

Since this particular SSD came to us in an OEM package, I will not go into detail about the package which is a standard grey box. The SSD was well protected inside and that is the most important thing.

Th retail versions will surely include additional descriptions, product information and other things that we are accustomed to seeing on the product packaging.

The Toshiba HG6 SSD presents itself really good. The aluminum case looks classy but also helps in cooling the internal parts of the SSD. As I had already mentioned, there is direct contact between the thick thermal pads and the case so we can be sure that every chip is well protected.

Above we can see the standard SATA data and power connectors. The Toshiba HG6 is compatible with every SATA controller on the market.

On the back of the SSD we can find empty spot probably left for the retail SSD logo sticker. Also this side is aluminum. We can also see pink thermal pads in the small holes.

Here in these photos we can see the PCB and its simple layout.

Here is also back of the PCB. Not much to see here as all parts are on the upper side. All in all this looks pretty clean and tidy.
