Samsung put together a nice retail package for the 840. The front of the package is fairly bare, but we did find performance claims on the back of the package.
The performance data on the back of the package makes it easy for potential buyers to tell the difference between products in a retail store. In the 500GB 840 review we covered the Data Migration Software issue we found.
Samsung lists Data Migration Software on the back of the bare drive package, but we found out in testing the software is only a 30 day trial of Norton Ghost and not the full licensed version.
The inner package is well put together with the drive in the middle of a plastic tray and the manuals, software and stickers tucked in behind the drive on the other side of the tray.?
