This is the first Fujitsu SSD we've tested that shipped with a full retail kit. The package lets you know that this is product packs SLC flash.

The back of the package lists the product's specifications, and explains the difference between SLC, MLC, and TLC flash.

Inside the package, you receive a warranty statement that doubles as a user guide, a contact for support, and the FSXtreme SSD.

Here we get our first look at the Fujitsu SXtreme Series 240GB SSD. Everywhere you look Fujitsu lets you know this drive packs SLC flash, but doesn't throw it in your face.

The model and serial number are listed on the back of the drive. Our drive was manufactured in September of 2014.

The FSXtreme uses a 7mm z-height case design, so it will fit in your Ultrabook or notebook that requires thinner design.

We didn't find a thermal pad inside of the case, but the SandForce SF-2281 controller rarely gets hot, even under high load.

The controller employed by Fujitsu is the VB1 version of the SF-2281. This is a newer stepping model that reduces power and thermal output.

The special component is the Single-Level Cell (SLC) flash. Fujitsu uses Intel flash in all of the company's consumer SSDs, but these are the rare super die that reduce program latency, and turn up the performance.
