The silver and black theme from the drive carries over to the packaging of the Vertex 2 as well. OCZ has done a good job with the package front. Here we see that the drive capacity information is shown clearly at the top right and it would be difficult to miss the inclusion of the desktop adapter.
On the back we found some general SSD information as well as Vertex 2 specific information on a shortened specifications area. We easily found the 4K, 50K IOPS write information, but it was not discussed other than a bit of cryptic text in the written portion. In a retail environment it would be easy for a shopper to overlook the feature and make a blind purchasing decision based on price alone.
The inner packaging is made of closed cell foam and does a great job of holding the drive in place. The screws for the mounting bracket are kept in a separate area and the bracket is attached to the back of the foam.
The adapter bracket is something we have seen before with OCZ and other manufacturers drives. Here we can see that it is basic, yet functional. I have used these before and for the most part they get the job done, but in some chassis' with built in slide rails you will need to work a bit harder to get the alignment right.
