The front of the packaging is black and orange themed. There is a picture of the drive without the manufacturer label. The enclosed drive's capacity is given on the top right corner on the front of the package. The rear of the packaging carries the same black and orange theme as the front. The drive's V-NAND technology and three-year warranty are advertised here.

Inside of the packaging, the drive and installation guide sit in a plastic tray.

The front of the drive has a manufacturer label that covers the flash packages, DRAM package, and controller.

The back of the drive features the thermally conductive label we touched on earlier.

With the label removed, we see two flash packages, a DRAM package, and the drive's Polaris controller.
