ADATA changed their package design since the S511 and S510 series of SandForce SF-2281 drives hit the market. You can now see the drive itself through the box via the window on the front. On the front side of the package we get some of the details like the desktop adapter bracket inclusion, SandForce Driven text, but not the logo, which is sure to confuse somewhat educated brick and mortar shoppers.
More information is given on the back of the package. The one area that stood out for me was the Max Performance ratings. It shows the typical 550MB/s read and 530MB/s write speeds for documents and the Multimedia Data read of 220MB/s with a 255MB/s write speed. ADATA is clearly showing that this is asynchronous flash performance.
Inside the package we found the drive in a secure compartment away from the desktop adapter bracket so neither will get scratched. A printed quick start guide is included to walk you through the installation and a document that shows how to download Acronis True Image.
