The Packaging

One thing we can tell you for sure, the package is certainly orange enough. Get your sunglasses on before maximizing the image.

 

On the front you can see the drive through the window which is nice. On the side we can clearly see the MLC flash type, 2.5" form factor and SATA III information, but there is nothing about the higher rated flash mentioned. On a retail shelf it will be easy for someone to choose the lower priced Pyro over the Pyro SE.

It's the same story on the back, there is nothing that jumps out and says, Look at me, I'm the one you want! Patriot doesn't list any performance information what so ever. I'm glad you guys and gals reading this are doing your research here before buying.

The inner package is pretty basic, but effective at keeping the drive secure during shipping. The SE comes with a little manual and a sticker so your buddies don't think you have an OCZ or Intel SSD in your rig, because both of those companies also include stickers with their SSDs.
