Our review samples arrived as bare drives only. Both feature Samsung's typical all black enclosure, with a gray square that denotes the drives are EVO series SSDs.

The rear of the all black cast aluminum alloy enclosure features a manufacture's label that lists the part number, model number, serial number, shipping firmware, capacity, and various other bits of relevant information.

Cracking open the enclosure reveals a tiny PCB inside. The PCB is held in place with two locator pins. To us, this looks like an mSATA SSD with connectors placed on the side instead of the front of the PCB.

Both capacities are identical on this side of the PCB, featuring Samsung's ARM-based MGX controller and one 128GB flash package.

The opposite side of the PCB on the 250GB model has an additional 128GB flash package.
