Samsung's SSD 840 EVO mSATA SATA III SSD comes packaged in an attractive dark grey colored box. There is a picture of the drive on the front of the box. The front of the box states the drive's capacity as well as its mSATA form factor.

The rear of the dark grey box informs us that the mSATA EVO is backed by Samsung with a three-year limited warranty.

The mSATA EVO ships inside of a protective plastic clamshell style container. Included with the drive are the printed User Manuel and a Warranty Statement Summary, and a pair of "Samsung SSD activated" stickers.

The top of the drive has its components covered by a factory sticker that's designed to tear if removed. This factory sticker lists the drive's capacity, part number, and serial number, along with other pertinent information.

 

Under the factory sticker, you would find two 128GB 19nm Samsung TLC NAND packages, Samsung's proprietary MEX 8 channel tri-core flash storage processor, and a 512MB DRAM buffer chip. The bottom of the drive's tiny PCB has assorted surface mounted components, and a sticker that designates this drive as an 840 EVO mSATA SSD.
