The 1.8" Mtron Mobi 3000 is a PATA SSD targeted towards a specific niche of users: those who own an Apple MacBook Air and certain netbooks. Offering low power consumption, high transfer speeds, and low seek times this drive gives users the ability to upgrade their computer, even with the not-so-common 1.8" form factor. In this review we take a look at the Mtron Mobi 3000 from RocketDisk and see how well it performs compared to other SSD’s and hard drives we have reviewed.

Normally we don’t bat an eye at the packaging a hard drive is shipped in, but Mtron really impressed us with the box housing the Mobi 3000. It is loaded with foam, protecting the drive with about an inch top and bottom, and probably 2 or 3 inches around the sides. The drive sits in the center inside an anti-static baggie, with another block of foam sitting on top of it to completely encase it within the foam shell. While it is normal to see stickers holding anti-static baggies shut, we think Mtron should use a different sticker for this sleeve. It doesn’t instill confidence in a consumer when the bag you open to take out the drive has “warranty will be void if this seal is broken or removed” sticker keeping it closed.
