Drive Details - Crucial MX200 500GB SSD
Crucial packages their MX200 SATA III SSD in an attractive blue and silver flip-top box. There is a picture of the drive on the top of the box.
The rear of the box lists the contents, as well as another picture of the drive and the included spacer.
Here is the complete contents of the drives packaging.
Crucial moved away from their typical reverse labeling with the MX200. The top and sides of the drives enclosure are formed from a single piece of sheet aluminum that interlocks with the bottom half of the enclosure. The enclosure is natural aluminum in color. There is an attractive blue and silver sticker on the face of the top half of the enclosure.
The bottom and inner sides of the drives enclosure are formed from another single piece of interlocking sheet aluminum. A manufacturer's sticker lists the drives capacity, shipping firmware, model number, serial number and various other relevant information.
Here's what Crucial's MX200 500GB SSD looks like completely disassembled. There are a total of (8) 64GB 16nm BGA NAND packages, 1 DDR cache package and a Marvell 88SS9189-BLD2 flash processor. Host power loss protection is provided via a total of 16 capacitors, 8 are located on this side of the PCB and another 8 on the opposite side of the PCB. The PCB is secured to the enclosure by a single screw and 2 locator pins.
All chips on the board make contact with a Mylar type thermal sheet that is affixed to the top half of the enclosure. There is a thick, white, non-thermal foam strip that acts as a spacer affixed to the bottom of the drives enclosure ensuring that the PCB stays secured within the locating pins.
