BIOSTAR G330 256GB SATA III SSD
The front of the packaging features an image of a BIOSTAR SATA SSD. Capacity, interface and warranty are advertised here.
The rear of the packaging shows that this is actually a box from the previous BIOSTAR G300 SSD, and that they just put a sticker on the front to sort of update it. The back of the box doesn't accurately describe what is inside, because there is no mention of 3D flash, or a 6.8mm "Laser formed" enclosure - both of which are highly promoted on the G330's web page.
Contained within the packaging is the drive and a printed quick installation guide.
The drives matte-black enclosure is formed from sheet aluminum. There is an attractive logo at the center.
The bottom and sides of the enclosure are also formed from sheet aluminum. There is a manufacturer's label listing the particulars of the drive.
Popping the enclosure open reveals the controller-side of a half-length PCB, held in-place with 3 screws.
This side of the PCB houses two of the drive's three, 32-layer 3D TLC flash packages, a Silicon Motion SM2258 4-channel controller and a SK hynix 256MB DDR3 DRAM package
This side of the PCB houses one flash package.
A close-in view of the drive's controller, Micron flash package, and SK Hynix DRAM cache package.
