SSD erase block size

I've just had a new T410 delivered with a 128Gb solid state drive. Linux reports the drive model as a "SAMSUNG MMCRE28G". Can someone tell me what the erase block size is, please, so I can get things aligned properly? I can't find any mention of this drive at all, let alone specs, on Samsung's rather useless website. It's easy enough to align the partitions on multiples of 1Mb to be safe, but I'm not sure what "stripe-width" to use to tell the ext4 filesystem to align files appropriately. It's too bad this basic information seems not to be published anywhere...
