my drive showed up today. the case has a very plastic feel to it, but it does seem to actually be aluminum as stated. when I plugged it into my linux system it was detected as a TEAM T253X2001T drive with firmware version S1230A0. here is some info I have found online about the drive.
Part number seems to coincides with a Team GX2 SATA SSD. Silicon Motion SM2258XT controller with 64L Micron 3D NAND, no DRAM. For a storage drive, it’ll serve the purpose just fine.
