This is the kind of thing we really like to see a manufacturer do with their solid state products. Right on the front we can see enough information to get us excited. Things like TRIM support in Win7, Optimized for AHCI, SandForce inside and my personal favorite, read and write performance. If you work for an SSD maker, please take notice; the boxes that are coming out without this information doesn't make it easy for the guy standing in Fry's looking at 15 different SSDs with prices ranging from 120 USD to over a grand. I would have liked to see a little more detail as to which version of SandForce controller the S599 is using, since it would help retail consumers make a more informed purchasing decision.
The back of the box has some general information about the drive and we see at the bottom the performance numbers again with a bit of explanation.
Unlike the Corsair Force F100 we reviewed last week, the S599 does not include a 2.5 to 3.5" adapter that makes it easier to install 2.5 inch notebook standard drives in your desktop, but the price also reflects that.
The inner packaging is fairly plain, but it does a good job of protecting the drive during shipping. SSDs are very robust and can take a beating, so they need little protection. The A-DATA package keeps the drive from bouncing around since the protective plastic holds the drive snug.
