Plextor has adapted the same packaging as several other mSATA SSDs venders; the drive ships in a resealable blister pack that is retail friendly. Users also receive two screws, just in case their desktop motherboard or notebook doesn't ship with them.

Here we get our first look at the Plextor M6M 256GB mSATA SSD. There really isn't much to look at on this side. Two NAND flash packages and a DRAM package reside under the label. The label shows the model number, serial number, and the firmware on the drive when it shipped. This drive shipped with firmware 1.00, but we used version 1.06 for testing today.

On the opposite side, we found the other two NAND packages, and the Marvell 88SS9188 controller.

The controller has just four channels, and is different from the controller used on Plextor's M5 Pro and M6 Pro - both use eight-channel controllers.
