Just received a replacement mini 9 from Dell today after an especially poor bout with customer (dis)service. I was planning on swapping the SSD
drives before sending the defective unit back, as it's a prototype unit for a special project I'd really rather not have to redo. Long story short, it seems that Dell may have actually listened to my sourcing suggestion back months ago when this started: my 64Gb SSD
is actually a special-for-dell runcore!
Either way, once I clone the drive I plan to do some benchmarks to see if it's really the same quality as the RunCore retail units, but I did notice that Dell had them remove the USB connector, so cloning will be a bit more of a hassle than I hoped when I first saw it.
Has anyone else received a 64Gb RunCore drive in their Mini 9 (or 10v)? The Part number is different from my old unit (Stec 64Gb is DP/N 0F462N and RunCore 64Gb is DP/N 0T3MY3), but I didn't see it on dell's website - maybe orderable through parts over the phone?
