Re: New SSD....Is it new??

It is probably an OEM drive - these come in some anti static package with little or nothing else.  They are cheaper since there is no packaging, cables etc, but the drives are generally the same as the retail packaged drives.  Not sure why the different case, but Samsung makes drives for many companies and this could just be one of the variations.   Individuals who build computers for themselves or others often use OEM drives, since they do not need manuals, CD's, or instructions.
