Samsung 840 EVO 1TB mSATA SSD




We're just going to roll right through the product packaging images.






The drive placement is in the middle of the packaging, so your 840 EVO mSATA is well protected during shipping.




Inside of the package, we found a warranty statement summary that doubles as a user manual, two Samsung SSD Activated stickers, and the drive itself.




And here she is! Samsung stuffed 1024 MB of flash, and 1GB of DRAM, on a card that's smaller than the average Zippo lighter.




The backside has two NAND flash packages, and a handful of surface mount components.




On the main side of the drive, Samsung has a MEX controller, a single 1GB DRAM package, and two additional NAND flash packages. As we mentioned in the introduction, in order for Samsung to achieve this density, the 840 EVO mSATA 1TB model achieves 16 NAND die per package. To my knowledge, this is the first time we've seen 16 die per package on a consumer SSD.
