PACKAGING AND ACCESSORIES:
The HP EX900 is packed inside the usual M.2 cradle. That said, we’ve got an external carton here and a two part internal shell that houses the drive itself.
Motherboards nowadays with M.2 slots are required to supply their own screws. HP never bothered to include such, but they insisted to provide a simple multilingual user’s manual instead.
DESIGN, LAYOUT AND CONNECTIVITY:
The HP EX900 M.2 SSD is a simple looking fellow. It is, since it resembles your typical 2280 form factor M.2 SSD.
The SM2263XT controller is close to the M.2 connector and it doesn’t feature any heatsinks. Next to it are the four NAND flashes, with 32GB of capacity each.
