We received the first unit MDSSD had available so the package work wasn't completely sorted out. In our package we received the SMART mSATA SSD and a Zip-Lock type bag with the securing screws.

With the sticker in place there isn't much to see on this side, but MDSSD listed all of the information you'd want to find on the sticker.

On the other side we found two 25nm flash chips that are private labeled. At Computex we spoke with ADATA and learned they are buying massive amounts of flash so they can hand pick the best chips and sell the rest off. As flash technology continues to decrease in die size and premium chips become rare, this process will help ADATA stay ahead.

With the sticker off (and a voided warranty) we see the SandForce SF-2281 controller and two more flash chips.

A quick shot from the side so you can see how thin mSATA SSDs are.
