Our sample BP3 256GB was packaged in an anti-static bubble wrap bag and included two mounting screws.

There really isn't much to mSATA SSDs and as you can see they aren't housed in fancy aluminum or steel cases. On this side we see the Phison S8 SATA III controller, two Toshiba 24nm Toggle NAND flash chips and a Nanya 128MB DRAM buffer module.

On the other side we found two more Toshiba NAND flash chips and a host of surface mount capacitors and resistors.

From the side we can see just how small the mSATA form factor really is. Many notebook and ultrabooks place the slots for them under the keyboard.

 

To be honest this is the second BP3 mSATA drive MyDigitalSSD has sent. The first was waiting for me when I returned from Computex. After not sleeping on my 24 hour flight, I opened the package and misplaced the mSATA drive. It's very small, but will one day turn up.
