Seagate 600 Series Pro 200GB SSD
Our drives arrived bare, so we don't have anything to show you as far as packaging goes. The top and sides of the enclosure are formed from a single piece of cast, brushed aluminum, which has been left natural in color. Centered on the top of the 600 Pro's enclosure is a manufacturer's sticker that lists the drive's part number, serial number, shipping firmware, and other relevant information.
The bottom of the drive's enclosure is formed from a piece of sheet metal. The bottom of the enclosure interlocks with the top, making it tamper proof.
Normally we disassemble our test subject/s to show you the internals, but not this time. We know from previous experience that opening a Seagate 600 SSD practically destroys the enclosure. Seagate was kind enough to provide us with an internal photo of a 600 series PCB (pictured above), so we didn't have to rip one open to show you what's on the inside. The drive's NAND array is located entirely on this side of the PCB, along with two DRAM buffer chips, and a LAMD Amber LM87800 FSP (Flash Storage Processor).
The reverse side of the PCB is devoid of components. There are four high quality tantalum capacitors (yellow rectangles) located just above the drive's flash array. Seagate employs a thermal pad to wick heat from the drive's controller into its enclosure.
