Like the SSD itself, this packaging is vibrantly monotone.
Along with the drive you get some stickers that claims your SSD is faster than your buddy’s HDD, because you know, you’re bad. It’s like you own a power glove. You also get a 5.25″ to 3.5″ conversion tray, some screws and a small manual.
The drive itself is black with some white bordering. This actually breaks the mold of the usual granite like shell that most SSDs are housed in.
Popping off the casing we see that the controller is indeed the Sandforce SF-2281VB1-SDC controller. Thanks to Sandforce’s Duraclass technology, there is no need for a seperate buffer chip. This improves latency as well as acting as a space saving measure.
