The SanDisk Extreme II comes packaged in a small attractive box that has a picture of the drive on front. The box is grey with red and white lettering. The drives capacity is listed along with a few attributes common to SSD's.

The rear of the box gives us the definition of a gigabyte in ten languages. A yellow logo informs us that the drive is backed by an industry standard three 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 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 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 Ultra Plus 256GB SSD looks like completely disassembled. The Ultra Plus has a tiny PCB. The drives controller, DRAM module and two of the drives four NAND chips all make contact with a thermal pad, thereby dissipating heat generated into the aluminum half of the enclosure.
