The Packaging

Intel uses a very colorful package for the new 520 Series drive, but we don't see any performance numbers. These drives will make it into retail channels like Fry's and possibly other big box stores like Best Buy. On the front we see a High Performance marking and at the lower right the capacity size, but nothing that tells a retail guy this is the product to buy.

On the back we found some general information about the 520 Series in several languages and a list of what is included.

Intel's bar code sticker is placed on the side of the package. Our drive was born January 6, 2012.

Inside we found the drive packed well and separated from the accessory package.

The number of accessory goodies is extensive and even includes a disk with the software tools.
