The rear of the box informs us the drive ships with a spacer and gives us the definition of a gigabyte in 10 languages. A yellow logo informs us that the Extreme II is backed by an industry leading five year warranty.

Here's what SanDisk's Extreme II 120GB SSD looks like completely disassembled. The FSP (Flash Storage Processor), DRAM module and NAND chips all make contact with a thermal pad thereby dissipating heat generated into the aluminum half of the enclosure.
