The rear of the all-white packaging informs us that Samsung's 750 EVO is "The smart solution for PC upgrade" and that the drive is covered by a 3-year limited warranty.

The drive enclosure is typical Samsung; all aluminum with a black finish. Minimalistic and attractive. The grey square denotes that the drive is an EVO series SSD.

The back half of the drive's enclosure features a manufacturer's label listing the particulars of the drive.

Opening the drive reveals that top half is formed from cast aluminum, the bottom half from sheet aluminum. Both are of excellent quality. The PCB is a reduced size design. The inside of the enclosure is marked as 850 EVO, because both the 750 EVO and 850 EVO models utilize the same enclosure.

This side of the PCB houses the drive's MGX controller, two of its four flash packages, and a single DRAM cache package.
