SanDisk Extreme II 120GB
The SanDisk Extreme II comes packaged in a small attractive box that has a picture of the drive on the front. The box is black and red with gold, red and white lettering. The drives capacity is listed, along with a few attributes common to SSD's.
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.
SanDisk includes a stick-on plastic spacer for increasing the drives overall thickness, as well as a printed installation guide.
The top of the Extreme II's enclosure is formed from a single piece of black plastic. Centered on the top face of the drive is a black manufacturer's sticker with red and white lettering.
The bottom and sides of the Extreme II's enclosure are formed from a single piece of stamped aluminum painted black. Centered on the rear face of the enclosure is a manufacturer's sticker that lists the drives part number, serial number, capacity and interface.
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.
