Our drives arrived bare so we don't have anything to show you as far as packaging goes.

 

The top and sides of the enclosure are formed from a single piece of cast glass beaded aluminum painted black. There is an attractive white wave graphic running across the top of the enclosure and a white Seagate logo beside it.

The bottom of the drive enclosure is formed from a piece of sheet metal. The bottom of the enclosure interlocks with the top making it tamper proof.

 

Centered on the bottom of the enclosure is a manufacturer's sticker that lists the drives part number, serial number, shipping firmware and other relevant information.

Here's what a Seagate 600 240GB SSD looks like completely disassembled.

 

The drives NAND array is located entirely on this side of the PCB, along with two DRAM buffer chips and a LAMD Amber LM87800 FSP (Flash Storage Processor). The reverse side of the PCB is devoid of components.

 

There is a raised portion of the drives cast aluminum enclosure that makes contact with a thermal pad that is in contact with the drives FSP.
