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

Here we get our first look at the drive. The label lists the part number, serial number, and capacity size.

The backside has a few surface mount components, but no flash.

The 120GB model has only two NAND packages, and they are on the main side with the controller and DRAM. There are four 128GB die in each package, so interleaving is limited on the 120GB model.
