Crucial MX300 750GB SATA III SSD
In typical Crucial fashion, the MX300 ships in a flip top box. The top of the packaging is grey themed, features an image of the drive and informs us that the enclosed SSD is a limited edition 750GB capacity.
The back of the flip top box is all white. The contents of the packaging are listed and the drive's limited three-year warranty is advertised.
Inside of the box, the drive itself is cradled in a clear plastic tray for protection. Crucial includes a stick-on plastic spacer and a printed download guide with an Acronis HD key.
The top half of the drive's all-aluminum enclosure features a colorful manufacturer's label.
The bottom half of the drive's enclosure features another manufacturers label that lists the drive's model number, serial number, shipping firmware, and PSID number along with other various bits of relevant information.
Liberating the drive's PCB from its enclosure is no easy task. The PCB itself snaps into the enclosure and the enclosure snaps together. The MX300 is a completely screw less design. The blue colored PCB is a full length design. This side of the PCB houses four Micron 3D TLC flash packages, which indeed do have a reduced footprint, the drive's Marvell 4-channel controller, and Micron DRAM cache package.
This side of the PCB houses an additional four Micron 3D flash packages.
